Which is fine by me. The prime continuity is inextricably linked with Berman, which it shouldn't be. He isn't the only guy on the planet qualified to handle that universe and there's no reason to think someone else might be incapable of making that universe relevant and interesting. I spent a long time reading Ron Moore's epic rant about Voyager, for instance. There were people even back in the day who had a better idea how to make those shows really pop, and Berman really sabotaged things.
