Re: If TNG/DS9/VOY were never made, would you have watched TOS?
I watched TOS in syndicated reruns before TNG even premiered.
I started watching in 1976.
Interestingly, TOS was 20 years old when TNG started
TNG was 20 years old when ENT started and JJTrek released
(anals, please treat both occurences of the number 20 above as aproximations)
In the case of Enterprise
it is a pretty big approximation as The Next Generation
was two years shy of twenty when the former was cancelled in 2005.
