# 1 Lore Question
08-31-2011, 03:19 AM
I've just finished watching Star Trek, the 2009 film, where Nero comes back in time with Spock and destroys Vulcan, after blaming spock for letting Romulus be destroyed.

I am wondering why Vulcan is in Star Trek Online?

Because the 2009 film is an alternate universe/timeline just like the Mirror universe.

STO is set in the prime universe. IE: The one from the TV shows.

Because STO does not take place in the JJverse. it takes place in the Prime Universe. I suggest watching the 2 parter "Unification" and then reading the 2009 Comic "Star Trek: Countdown" to learn what I mean.

You sure that alternate timelines are the most confusing, nonsensical part of that movie?

Because the last Trek movie by JJ abrams is a joke. And a very bad one at that.

+ Yea its an alternate timeline. STO is the original timeline.

I do wonder if some people stopped paying attention when it was mentioned about alternate universes in the movie itself.

The 2009 film has nothing to do with Data's brother Lore.
