Any rewrite will be a "next generation" of the previous thing.  I
don't see the harm in calling things what they actually are.

There were probably some hurt feelings on the Star Trek staff when
Star Trek: TNG came around, but that's not sufficient justification to
stop the writers of that show from calling it what they wanted to call
