In true Star Trek fanboy manner, I watched the movie last night. And there are a lot of details that will need to be updated if the movie will be considered cannon. And therefore added to the ST:Online game universe.

Good luck to the guys at Cryptic, and thanks for making this game for us Trekkies.

In the movie, they even explain why things will not change in the STO Universe: It is an Alternate timeline.

STO is still in the Original Timeline, where the past is unchanged, and and the 'Path' description is what happened, HERE.

JJ Abram's Star Trek, is the story of the alternate timeline that is created upon the arrival of Nero in the past.

Basically, instead of 'disappearing' because the past was 'changed', the original timeline continues, and an 'alternate timeline' branches off at the moment Nero arrives in the past.

It is line connecting a new road to an old freeway. The old freeway still continues on, but now there is simply another road branching off it.

JJ doesn't like Trek so he turns into a star wars equiv...
 
thats still.... it's not how the changes impact the universe... it's that there is a divergence... if i had known that jj abrams was going to do this, i never would have encouraged it... it's not bad... not at all. i was thoroughly entertained... sometimes shocked... but otherwise entertained... this was just... JJ abrams wanted to make star trek fun... for him... he didn't care that there was already a loyal following out there that enjoyed the formula... and that all he had to do was tweak it... in a way i'm glad paramount is trying to start over with JJ... because if they'd put roddenberry's name anywhere on the credits(don't know didn't stay long enough to see) i'm sure he'd be rolling... spinning furiously in his grave now... TOS failed in public opinion... because Roddenberry wasn't allowed to make the intelligent cerebral show he wanted... instead he pandered to his production requirements because of the fact they did not care about the show.. they just wanted ratings... and so low and behodl here's what we have... i will say this.... it was enjoyable... but to me as a hardcore trek fan... the story was at times non-sensical... whats worse to me is the general idea... you don't diverge from the primary story line.,.. Stargate has repeatedly toyed with alternate realities and timelines to spice things up... but they've always come back to the basic formula... which for them works...

all in all the movie was good... my biggest point and greatest fear is losing everything alot of the hardcore fans have come to appreciate in past couple of decades....

I hope they know Twitter is down for maintenance. :eek:

Even though Twitter seems to be down for the moment, I think that this is a great way to build on the momentum the new movie is building for the franchise. Hopefully Twitter comes back soon enough!
