So, BSG is it's own good example of how a restart can work, and fail if the focus is lost.
but, ST:11 is not a reboot.
See there I disagree with that, it is not a total reboot but it is a kick up the arse for the franchise. A breath of fresh air from JJ, something I think it sorely needs. I can only hope that it works.
