I'm gonna say no for extremely selfish reasons. I like Star Trek perfectly the way it was. My whole life has been all about Star Trek and now I could give a shit about the "NuTrek" that has been coming out. I am not at all looking forward to the new movie and it pisses me off to no end that JJ Abrams is doing Star Trek now even though he was never a fan before. I know that in order to get more fans a reboot was necessary, but to be honest, I don't care about new fans. I want my Star Trek to be the way it always was. I don't want or care for this "NuTrek", it means nothing to me.
Bolding, mine.

I've always been curious about that POV in fandom (really any Fandom, not just Trek). Would the person rather the franchise whether and die out that be retooled and retold for new generations?
To answer your question: The franchise would never die out to me because I have the DVDs to watch over and over so it would always be a part of my life. And I think it is that way with a lot of people. It will always be a part of their lives. They will teach their children to love it. It wouldn't die out if they didn't make any more movies. I don't believe that at all.
Oh it'd die out. It already was losing relevance to younger generations--hence the reboot. Star Trek is a product--no matter how much we enjoy it--and if the product doesn't sell they don't make anymore of it.
