Superman Returns can fall in that category. Even if all the TV series didn't count, there were animated movies that didn't follow Christopher Reeve's Superman like Returns did.

Now that would be THE opportunity to have Star Trek boldly go where no other franchise has gone before.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Wow. I can't believe so many people want the old timeline back. It doesn't even matter which timeline we're in, unless they reference to the old stuff.

Some franchises have chosen to ignore certain sequels (the Universal Soldier series did this, apparently) but that's not quite the same thing.
Star Trek II ignored I, and VI ignored V. Every Highlander sequel ignores all the others and the ending of the first one. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance ignored the first one. Friday 13th Part V ignored IV, picking up in an alternate post-III continuity. And as you pointed out, Universal Soldier: The Return ignored the two telemovies, and then Universal Soldier: Regeneration ignored The Return and the telemovies, picking up again after the original.

How does ST VI ignore V?

Kirk goes from drinking and being friendly with Klingons to being a racist bastard who wants the entire species left to die for the murder of his son. Scotty and Uhura's relationship from V is ignored in VI etc.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Well, he was hardly being friendly with all Klingons, and saying he's 'a racist bastard' who wants all klingons to 'die' is an extreme exaggeration of STVI. What he says is that the Klingons, collectively, not individually, can't be trusted and the federation shouldn't be making dearmament deals with them (because they will not keep them). The 'Let them die' line is very clearly a reference to the Empire, not to the Klingon species.

I'd completely forgotten about Scotty and Uhura in STV, though. That one is completely ignored in VI, as you say.

"They're animals!"

"I've never trusted Klingons, and I never will. I've never been able to forgive them for the death of my boy."

He's definitely speaking of the people, not the political body.

Now re-watch V, where he smiles and salutes the Klingon captain, where Scotty and everyone are having a great time totally at odds with VI's "guess who's coming to dinner"

Well, to be fair, if you were making a film series of your life, how many flirts and girlfriends would be "ignored" in the next installment?

I wouldn't mind if they brought back the prime time-line but I do not feel it is essential.

So something the suits who ultimately decide where the franchise is going are likely to be unwilling to do since know one has done it before and it could blow up in their faces?

It looks like Universal is going to do just that with The Legend of Conan, but it's certainly pretty unusual, and I wouldn't expect it to happen with Star Trek. Conan is only going that way because (a) the studio has lured Schwarzenegger, somehow still an international star, back to the fold and (b) the reboot was a flop.
Hmm. That would definitely qualify, I admit.

Well assuming it goes anywhere because right now it sounds like they're just talking about doing it.
