Not that it would have been possible for another ship to have found the Botany Bay, because the Enterprise is the only ship that is able to fly around space at the moment.

I doubt it's the Khan we know him, though I can see a connection.

1# It wouldn't make sense to permanently kill Spock off considering the whole "you two are friends for life" speech given in the fist film.

#2 Zachary Quinto has signed on for three films (at least). This is number two.

You are right, nice find. I wish they'd remove them stupid helmets though.

I too noticed what appeared to be rectangular nacelles on the 'water-crash' scene, but the ship that is coming out of the water, those nacelles are definitely the Constitution type. Either they're one or the same ship, or there are multiple ships submerged in this film (which seems unlikely).

This is a perfectly rational way of looking at the new timeline. Kudos to you.
