I'm sorry Mr. Damon Lindelof
You are mistaken
It did not.
It needed some one with imagination to go forward, to continue the saga.
Indeed. His name is JJ Abrams and that's precisely what he's doing.
Or are you suggesting the saga can only continue so long as it continues further into the fictional Trek timeline? That to me is a lack of imagination.
That's fine, things change..
Just don't expect everyone to support this new vision and allow them their opinions.
My opinion, based on Enterprise and this new movie, Star Trek ended with Nemesis.
