You're forgetting that this is an alternate timeline where the stories and events proceed differently. I.E. This movie, if you've seen it. Having a new Star Trek series around the reboot would be interesting since:
1. Vulcans are an endangered species
2. Star Fleet is more militarized thanks to Nero's attack
3. Technology is slightly more advanced
4. The characters have evolved differently that the TOS characters
I'd think that the reboot has done fine in setting in a path that has some resemblance of TOS, but not enough to make it almost similar.
