I think they are going in the direction of the Countdown comics. Which is fine with me, they were a great read. If anyone wants more of a look at the STO uniforms to be used, read the comics! Pretty cool looking
They are also spreading out all the romulan resources in this post as i think they do anticipate the destruction of Romulus. Very interesting indeed.
The bigger question here is now is the time where Nero is sent back in time to become the bad guy in the new star trek movie.... so obviously he doesn't succeed in his mission of killing kirk or whatever.... or does he?!
Could be sent to an alternate time line that has no influence on this one because obviously the federation still exists in the STO realm... oh dear. I'm concerned and excited about the new movie indeed.
Hmm. So, it would seem that we have Jem'Hadar still in the Alpha Quadrant. More importantly, they are defying orders to return to the Gamma Quadrant. I think it is safe to assume that they will be acting as NPCs, and as mission antagonists in the wilder regions of space.
or that could be Cryptics way of setting of for the post game release Dominion addition
It looks like the next generation of new Noble Houses/noble warriors of the Klingon Empire will be the ones that stem from the early wars with Gorn. Can't wait to see how/if there is any major war/conflict with Gorn.
It's my understanding that the comics are only 'canon' relative to the movie. So it would appear that STO is set in the alternate universe of the new film. Sadly.
I don't want to get into spolers, but it's important to note that Cryptic intentionally worked with the movie folks to tie STO into the _pre-movie_ story.
Again avoiding spoilers, the movie may well start out as a part of the existing 40-year Trek timeline (the same as STO) but the movie may exist in its own separate timeline by film's end. There may well be a "branching off".
