The new movie doesn't take place in the original Star Trek universe, contrary to J. J. Abrams, Leonard Nimoy, or anyone else. Kirk had an older brother, but they deliberately edited him out of the final cut. The Romulans coming back in time and killing Kirk's father would have affected Kirk's future, but wouldn't have caused all the other characters to take different paths, and wouldn't have prevented Spock from serving on the Enterprise under Pike, or anything else.

The new movie lies when it says it's a change to the original. It was a different universe to begin with, before Eric Bana showed up. Please don't let that bogus universe affect ST Online.
