Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back?
Way to miss the whole point of the story. I'll make it explicit--ignoring your audience is a bad idea. So too is simply catering to what they say they want.
I think you have to ignore the audience when writing. Ask twenty-five Star Trek fans what they really want and you'll likely come away with at least thirty answers.
