That's just one aspect. It had several OTHER and more important problems:

Boring cast of characters.
Weak main character.
Not expanding or using established Trek races from TOS, or when done is with less than entertaining results.
Dedicating an entire season to the Xindi, a group that never existed prior to the series.
Controversial design of the Enterprise.

"Star Trek: Nemesis" recycled and cannibalized too many "Star Trek: The Next Generation" elements.
Again, that's just a single element you're focusing on. You're ignoring:

The weak story.
Romulans being portrayed COMPLETELY out of character.
Remans being some retcon slave race.
Remans being oogly-boogly for the sake of being scary aliens.
Dune buggy chase.
Villain is unfocused and not imposing.
Troi mind-r4pe scene
Worf on the Enterprise for no reason.
Another Soong-droid
Data's "death" being moot with "B4" hanging around.

"Star Trek: Into Darkness" recycled and cannibalized too many "Star Trek: The Original Series", "Star Trek: The Next Generation", and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" elements.
And was successful at it. The same cannot be said of your first 2 examples which killed interest in Star Trek, so I have no idea why you would even lump STID in with them. No really, let's have a second take on it:

One is amazingly successful.

The other 2 are failures.

^^^ Again, why is STID lumped in with them?

"Star Trek" needs to go into a twenty to thirty year hiatus, so that a very new visionary can create "Star Trek: The Third Generation". Its time for the franchise to gracefully age on the shelf.
How about "don't watch it?" I want more, so I certainly don't agree with your proposal in the least.

"Star Trek: Nemesis" and "Star Trek: Into Darkness" created the same sins.
Drama much?
