Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.
It wasn't simply that Trek went off the air for some other reason, it was taken off, cancelled, and the sets physically destroyed shortly after as a clear GTFO.
No one but a tiny vocal group of people that still cannot let go of it after it's death wanted it, and it was certainly far too boring, expensive and tired out to keep going.
Even if, for whatever insane reason, they went back to the first continuity, it would be so completely different from Berman Trek as to be unrecognizable as the Prime timeline.
I'm imagining that many people here would be very displeased if they went back to the Prime timeline under those conditions.
