I include myself in that group. I wasn't interested in a new series in 2001, but I am in 2011.
I agree with you, it is likely that there is a much higher general interest in a new series now then there was 10 years ago. However, CBS is quite a demanding network. I'm doubtful any new Star Trek series could ever garner the ratings that they would deem a success.
