I think a Trek movie set on a space station could work, but only if it was a Starfleet-built and operated design, had its own assigned starship like DS9 had, and was very
action-oriented. It would also have to be easily recognized as being part of the Star Trek universe (familiar uniforms, props, aliens, etc.).
When the day comes for the Abramsverse cast to hang up their Starfleet uniforms, I could see a spinoff movie with the abovementioned elements in that era. The Enterprise
(as well a member of her crew) could even make a brief appearance in a passing-of-the-torch manner.
