But then the fans of the most recent movies will insist that the 2025 remake of TNG is a travesty . . .

Re: is TOS the only 'true' Star Trek?

TOS is the only true visionary Trek. The others including TNG are extrapolations of that singular unique vision and more an amalgemem of many different visions and takes on the same subject material. Only GR was able to harness and focus the efforts of the geniuses of the day into a collective gestalt. The others were like the bands that followed the Beatles and the child actors that followed Shirley Temple, etc. or the radio piece that follows Beethoven's ninth symphony. Certainly not an envious place to be but Brahms did it, etc. so it can be done, if you're Brahms.

I think TOS is the foundation of the franchise, and deserves respect for that, but it's not the only "True" Trek.

I'm not so sure... there's a new TOS movie out imminently. When's TNG's next big-screen outing?

No, it's not. All the Treks are just as valid. Don't let the reactionaries fool you.

Ah, the circular logic of stating people are at fault simply because they don't share your opinion.

Nah. People who don't share my opinion are not "at fault", they're simply "wrong".

Everyone knows that according to Gene Rodenberry, only the second season of TOS, the first season of TAS, the second and sixth season of TNG, as well as scripts from its unproduced eight and eleventh seasons, the first and fifth films, and the Voyager episode Parturition are true Star Trek.
still the best answer anyone's come up with

is "true" the same thing as "canon"?

You're the poster who started the thread, right? How are you defining "true"?
