A "reboot", "prequel" (whatever you want to call it) is the way to go. Something new, fresh, modern and exciting.... something that won't be weighed down by all established Trek canon (which would undoubtedly happen if we went to the 25th century. There is no way you could tell a story that would appeal to Joe Sixpack and Trekkies at the same time if you had to take into consideration every little established fact of Trek).

I trust JJ. He knows what he's doing.

As has been posted in another topic is that TREK XI does in fact start in the TNG era and goes back to a 23rd century alternate universe related to the one we see in "Yesterday's Enterprise".
