Also, I have to wonder if the timeline really matters at all.

The only point of the NuTrek reboot was to bring back Kirk & Spock & the gang. If there was a new ship and new characters, how much would really change if it was set in the 23rd or 24th or 25th centuries?

The exploration stories would be the same
The alien of the week stories would be the same
The colony in danger stories would be the same
The Klingon stories would be pretty much the same
The Romulan stories would be the same, except Romulus blew up
The technobabble might be superficially different, I guess
Only if they brought back the same people involved in TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT. Different producers (which is a certainty) would make a show with a different "feel" - just as TNG had a very different feel to TOS.
