I don't have a problem revisiting the primary universe, but any new Star Trek
series should allow for the opportunity to learn about new characters, races, or places. Using familiar characters in anything but guest starring roles doesn't make sense, as there's only so much material that can be devoted to characters fans already know, even a character like Pike, who appeared in a small number of episodes. There's also the added problem of introducing information and story elements that contradict the events of other series, as Enterprise
came perilously close to doing. It would seem prudent to avoid making similar mistakes in any future spin-off.
