This does appear to be the perspective, yes. And, as you note, the fans have a deep devotion to this franchise which makes them far more sensitive to the lack of continuity within the product. Which is why I think things like Axanar hit so close to home is because there is a passion for the product in fan productions that is going to be lacking in CBS productions. And, honestly, I think that passion covers a multitude of sins because they at least appear to care while CBS does not. So, as much as I think fans want good stories I think they also want, as you say, a lot of sentimental feelings, and passion towards the franchise. And that usually looks like trying to recreate the past.
