I think you missed the boat; we have discussed this already.

Ah but you were in the past with the knowledge and experience of the prior timeline when the timeline was altered. You were shielded from the temporal change because you where in the past. Not to mention you were the cause of the temporal change. The question is how is Drake being shields from the changes in the timeline? Him being in the 25th century should be part of the new timeline.

This is assuming that time is linear in nature, but it could be we only perceive time in this fashion.

Anyone who had knowledge of the change was unaffected by it as well. That is how Drake knows after you come back. Plus he made a recording...just in case.

Yeah...that's it.

Actually it's not much of a paradine to dissect really. Your computer logs would still have information about the events. Even if it didn't, you now have knowledge of Drake's contacts and the super secret world Section 31 uses and can explain to him how he set up the time travel to begin with. Even if he didn't believe you, if he could modify your ship without knowing it, I'm sure he put something else in there to help him assess the situation. He seems like the thorough type. :p

Drake exists outside of time in his own, little universe.
