In hindsight, a lot of the complaints had less to do with the passage of time between TOS and ENT and more to do with latter playing it a bit too safe, perhaps not being daring enough to break the mold that often from its predecessors.
My impression was the opposite, and most critics reacted against everything that was different from the shows they knew. I think what they really wanted was just TNG with a slightly different ship.

Heh...many complaints were that it was just TNG (or VOY) with a slightly different ship.

I would enjoy a series about Robert April, the first Captain of the 1701. Fits nicely between Enterprise and TOS.

^ How do you know you would enjoy it if it hasn't even been made?

Re: Your ideal New Trek Series

To me, I'd like to see the next show set at/around one of these time periods (in the Prime universe, not the JJ-alternate reality universe):

- Romulan/Earth War (Post-ENT, not centered on the NX-01)
- Pre-TOS (Robert April commanding)
- "Lost" era (Enterprise-B/Enterprise-C time period)
- Post-VOY (15-20 years after Voyager's return)

Basically, either of the known gaps in Trek history. I think the easiest would be to set the new show beyond Voyager. Not as big of a risk of running into continuity issues, while still retaining the possibility of cameos.

The Romulan-Earth War is a time period that should've been part of ENT (instead of the Temporal Cold War bs). I feel we as fans were cheated out of this storyline, when they decided to cancel the show prematurely. Like the idea of setting a show post-Voyager, a Romulan/Earth War show could still feature cameos from previous crew. Should not be focused on the NX-01 specifically. Maybe the NX-02 Columbia, or one of the later sister ships.

With TOS in the mid 2260's that would make the time periods mid 2240's or so?

It would be a (not completely) clean slate, room for real inventiveness from the writers. We know next to nothing about April himself, TAS has him married to a doctor (forget her name), but it's unclear when the marriage occurred and he could be single in the show. Perhaps he could marry in a later season.

The show wouldn't suffer from what I refer to as "excessive magic technology" like a show set in the 25th century would.
