I'd sooner NOT find myself having to ignore, disown, whatever... anything in the Star Trek franchise.
I even value what the Animated Series brought to the table. It proudly sits between the Original Series and Motion Picture.
Ideally I'd prefer the next chapter to work as part of a bigger picture like that, in addition to doing its own thing.
But try telling that to anyone in Hollywood. The entertainment industry is basically eating itself alive right now. Picking over carcasses, some of which to me, weren't dead enough for that sort of reimaging. Somewhat obsessed with remaking everything they remember seeing when they were 8 years old, rather than coming up with completely original programming that will itself stand the test of time... without having a successful brand name to lean on.
