Four hours of NuTrek invalidating 21 seasons and 4 movies of the TNG/DS9/VOY era? Not anytime soon. But in another four, five years or so, it should be six hours.
But why does one have to invalidate the other?
That's the thing: people sometimes have the idea that a remake or reboot means rejecting an earlier version, but that's not necessarily the case. You don't have to stop watching or enjoying the old version to appreciate a different take on the subject matter. I still enjoy watching my old TOS DVDs even though I'm intrigued by the reboot.
But I'm not sure what would be gained by going back to the old continuity at this point? That cycle of Trek movies and episodes had a good, long run but it's over now. Time for something else.
