But today or in fifteen or twenty years, there will be people who have never seen or heard of Star Trek. A new series will be their first exposure to it.
So I think any new series should remain true to the Star Trek premise. I'd love to have a new sci-fi series, but I'm not interested in shoe-horning something completely incompatible into the Star Trek universe in the name of doing something "new".
I understand the logic, though I disagree that anything different automatically constitutes 'shoe-horning'. And I wouldn't even blame Paramount if they decided that kind of permanent reboot was the only thing that made financial sense for them.
But as for me - I've already seen TOS and TNG and Voy. I don't need to same the same stories a fourth time in the same style.
