I wasn't aware the franchise needed "saving" so to say. This is just the latest incarnation. I suspect after JJ's gone, there will be something else. Just the way it works.
The Franchise had gone either very stale or dead. It did need to be brought back to life.
My opinion is that for those that dislike JJ Abrams if someone they liked had saved Star Trek they would be on here singing their praises.
