Of all the fan proposals as to "how Trek could come back to TV" in the 70s and 80s, there never was anyone who said "set it on the Enterprise again but advance the time frame a century with an entirely
new cast of characters."
So, the fannish assumption that the best or likely most successful way to recreate it again is to move it back and forth along the established "Star Trek
timeline" is just another example of mimicking what we already know - the way in which a creative person immersed in the business will re-invent Star Trek
again probably will have no more to do with "modern Trek" or TOS than TNG did initially. Hopefully it will add a new dimension to the property that no one has seriously thought of.
