I wish PotT had been made into a feature film as conceived. Let TMP then be a reboot. The two don't need to be connected. More Trek is never a bad thing.
I still think TITANS could be done as a standalone TREK film, either with a new cast or new universe or reboot. Doesn't have to be Kirk & Spock, either.
in fact, I liked the idea of doing it with April ... you could have the saucer go back in time and April's guys become the titans, and the rest of the vessel, remaining in the 23rd century, becomes the basis for Pike/Kirk's Enterprise, establishing just how old the Enterprise really is at the time of its destruction, which has got to be about 40, not 20!
