Re: will star trek ever return to prime universe?

Nothing wrong with that. All I tried to point out was that what distinguishes Trek, its core, is not tied to particular characters or settings. Which is why I'd welcome any new Trek series that is truthful to these few axioms and totally free in any other respect instead of, like the last movie, going through the familiar moves, putting some fanwank glitter on top of it but not caring one iota about Trek's general principles.
If this sounds dogmatic it probably is. I wouldn't want some cyberpunkish sc-fi franchise to stop being cyberpunk. Arbitrariness is wrong in every area of life.
