Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.
Whomever ends up in charge of televised Trek will end up being the one who makes the decision one way or the other of continuing the old timeline, the Abramverse timeline or wiping the slate clean and starting over.
For a creator, I would think a clean slate would be the most attractive way to go. You can pick and choose the elements you want to use, disregard the rest and not worry about conflict with prior works.
