Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back?
If you believe a Next Gen reboot is possible, they're going to pull from that so called 'dead' timeline as much as NuKirk being from Iowa and NuSpock being half Vulcan.
Of course they'll use elements. But they will pick and choose the elements that fit the story and leave the rest in the past.
