I still don't see how this poll is even relevant, the vast majority of the board have not voted on it. It isn't fully indicative if this site nevermind a broader community.

Which all takes a back seat to the repeated fact that Prime Trek did not simply end a serialised run, but was cancelled due to non-viability of the product, a failure.

It needed rebooted because no one could justify returning to it yet again, and by the time any new series is made, there will be no point bringing back the emmense baggage of continuity of the previous series.

Then comes the "well, it needn't pay attention to any of it", in which case, why bother going back then? that's still a reboot of some sort.

It's not coming back, and it shouldn't. Let it go.
It wasn't cancelled due to the "non-viability of the product". It was cancelled due to a tired old production team not making the best use of it. There's a difference. It didn't need rebooting, it needed fresh ideas and a fresh perspective, and a break. If it does return, it'll return as a brand new series, with brand new ideas, telling stories in a universe that still has limitless potential.

It might come back, and there's nothing wrong if it does.
