My speculation would be that maybe it's a setup for the status quo seen in IDW's Countdown. A story involving Data's resurrection could count as a NEM sequel of sorts, and if it involves the rest of the crew leaving the Enterprise and moving on to the new roles we saw in Countdown, that could constitute a TNG "finale."
That's my alternate speculation too. While it's been a long time coming, there was some suggestion back when Countdown came out that they were planning a series doing exactly that.
There's been a bit of twitter back and forth between Joe Corroney and Sean Tourangeau that seems to suggest the USS Titan might be in this, whatever it is.
