I don't know why people say Into Darkness overrides Wrath of Khan in the time line......Into Darkness takes place before the Enterprise 5 year mission and before its refit......the Reliant hasn't even been drawn up on paper yet nor the Enterprise refit plans.....hell its 5 year mission begins when the movie ends.
I still liked it......because everything we love about star trek is not gone.....we are just seeing another time line...one that was out of infinite possibilities for the Federation. ....it came with new ship designs and a new story.....the way the Alt timeline is supposed to be seen is not the way you're supposed to see the original. ....thats why its a Alt timeline. ..its supposed to be different in some way ,shape or form.....if not....its not a new timeline
Agreed. Whilst I love TOS and what came before the new Star Trek is free to explore the same events from a different angle due to a change in the time line. Abrams actually had carte blanche to disregard what had come before and begin a new canon. Instead he chose to use the 'ripple effect' and create a new universe around that, meaning we still get to encounter some of the characters we loved but from a new perspective or even, in the case of Into Darkness an entirely new striong of events. Yes the role reversal and rehashing of the death scene in STII was a bit chessy but, for me it worked and I enjoy this new universe as mich as the old.
Ya.....the death scene was cheesy........and in all honesty.........I wanted the Enterprise to give the Vengeance a run for its money and not be a big bullseye.........I mean come on.....how easy is it to disable a starfleet ships weaponry.!?
The Connie is outdated and ugly. Yet the Kelvin, which was made with elements of the Connie in my mind, yielded a far more impressive result. The refit Enterprise was more "realistic" and beautiful than its previous form, which is why it prevailed for 6 movies. Yet, the JJ-prise is vastly more beautiful and structurely sound than either the Connie or the refit. Having said that, the Miranda-class is actually a better design for a starship that routinely encounters threats along the Federation border due to a sleeker profile and a greater array of weaponry. Think I'm wrong, the Miranda-class was still in service in Picard's time. For the record, I grew watching the original series on the black and white, and I've continued my love for Trek over the decades through all the series and the movies. The alternate reality IS the new reality, for the future of Star Trek and the audience.
