Re: So it's come to this-a petition to bring Star Trek back to TV...

What makes you say that? You're not the first person I've read make the claim that the "prime universe is done," but nobody ever seems to base it on anything.
I base it on how a television network producer thinks, not how an average Star Trek fan thinks. Just like this guy who made this petition, and as the OP correctly stated, people simply do not understand how television works, at least in regards to a future Trek series.

Not only is the prime universe considered a failure (thanks to Insurrection, Nemesis, and Enterprise), but AbramsTrek is considered a success, and CBS suits want to emulate success, not failure. They don't give a crap about the Borg, the Klingons, the Romulans, etc. They only care about the bottom line. What is working now is Kirk, Spock, Uhura, the Enterprise, and action. Expect any new Trek show to have the same elements.
