Yes, yes, yes and yes again!

Bring in Q or Captain Braxton to fix the "Adamsrift" and give us a new series with new characters in the timeline shortly after the end of Voyager.
And then no one outside of fandom would care.

Additionally, the most successful fan series are TOS retro formats which general audiences would assuredly not be drawn to.
I keep wanting a TNG-era fan series.

There's just no evidence that fans are the right people to come up with something that will sell. Generally speaking, though not universally, fans want more of what they like, which by definition is what's already been done. You see evidence of this all the time, when fans resist reboots and new takes on the franchises they adore.
Absolutely. As a general rule, fans are pretty bad at running a franchise. You need someone who understands the business first.
And that's my opinion.
