Star Trek Generations was a passing the torch film for a crew who had already been on our screens for 7 years. We had more time with them than the original crew when they received the torch.
If you count hours of episodes in the can, then yes. If you count years of fan popularity, then no.

Star Trek (2009) was technically a passing the torch film, but it played out more like a remake. If you forget about the alternative universe thing, which I'm sure 99% of the audience did, it's just a standard remake. Not to mention they were passing the torch to themselves.
The characters were the same, but the torch was passed to a different set of actors playing them.
