That's what makes the "Lost Ship" thing unsustainable and uninteresting after a while. TOS was going to do the same "Lost Ship" thing until Roddenberry realized it wouldn't work.
Whatever the virtues of the premise, this part simply isn't true. The original show was never going to end up "lost in space."
Probably not so much "lost" as "so deep into uncharted territory, they don't have a convenient connection to back home".
Although the original never went back to Earth, as early as Roddenberry's 1964 pitch document the Enterprise's mission included providing assistance to established Earth colonies.
