If Abrams and his gang had made a movie set post Nemesis, with a new crew, it would have been just as successful.
No, it wouldn't have.

I've been a fan of TOS since 1966. Love Abrams's version.
No it wouldn't have been as successful, general audiences would've seen it as just another Trek spin-off. The core product is TOS and TNG, to focus dollars elsewhere is just counter-productive.

The more crews you introduce the more watered down the product becomes. Besides, why introduce another crew when the TOS gang are largely unexplored outside of Kirk and Spock?
