Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back?
You can't dismiss two huge examples of 'lifted' elements by saying "yeah, but apart from that..." and expect your point to be taken seriously in any way.
Some fans will likely hang themselves when the day comes that an episode or movie is actually remade based on the responses some have had to Into Darkness
I, for one, can't wait for the day that we get a modern interpretation with modern effects of something like The Cage
or Where No Man Has Gone Before
