I honestly can't think of a single movie or tv franchise that reverted back to a previous continuity after being rebooted.
I think the biggest one that strikes me would be Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. They ignored the third movie completely. But the fourth movie continued from the third despite the TV show. Yeah, Terminator is definitely not as big of a continuity as Trek, but it's at least a decent example. There are other examples in movies where a new direction was forgotten.

You know, instead of recasting, they could do something original and create new Trek characters to launch a new show or movie!
But they'll all just be pale imitations of the characters and situations we've already seen.
Wouldn't that be the case for recasting too?

Personally, I'd want a new set of characters for TV.
Yeah, apparantly new series with original ideas would be immitations, but a faux Kirk and Picard wouldn't.
