Actually, Ron Moore said in an interview that only people beamed out leave behind an echo.

So Soran and Guinan have echoes in there. Picard and Kirk don't. You could always conjure up an imaginary Kirk inside there or use the Nexus to travel back to Kirk's day if you had the willpower to leave.

Soran's echo is an interesting point because although he was included in some screenplay drafts, he never made it into the film.

Ronald D. Moore commented:
"Guinan, Soran, and the other El-Aurians are in some kind of transitional phase going into the Nexus when their ships begin exploding. The Enterprise-B beams them away at a crucial moment that brings their physical bodies back, but leaves behind some kind of "echo" (at least for Guinan ? whether or not Soren also left behind an "echo" was the subject of much debate and many rewrites, some including a Soren doppelganger and some even including a meeting between the two Sorens in the Nexus). The momentary sensation of being in the Nexus leaves both Guinan and Soren with an almost overpowering desire to return. When Kirk is pulled into the Nexus, there's no transporter beam to yank him away and hence, he's completely left inside. When Picard and Soren enter the Nexus years later, they too are pulled in completely and the idea of an "echo" should not apply since it was the direct result of a transporter fluke in a very specific instance." (AOL chat, 1997)
That's about as official as it gets anyway.

So since the crack is in the Azure Nebula, which is in Klingon space, does that mean it will consume the Empire to the point we'll forget they ever existed?

I'm happy to hear that the new Sector is the Azure Nebula and that it's being moved to its proper canonical location. Though surprised its the "Azure Nebula" sector, instead of having it a named sector and the Azure Nebula being a floating cloud like the other nebulae in STO.

Though got to ask the team, what's going to happen to the old Azure Nebula? Removed or renamed?

The Azure Nebula never belonged in Omega Leonis. It supposed to be along the Federation Border as per canon.

Sulu tried to use the Azure Nebula to sneek into Klingon Territory to save Kirk.

In a parallel universe, the Azure Nebula is full of natural transwarp conduits that lead e.g. to the Gamma-Delta Quadrant border (Hirogen territory), to the DQ (Children of the Storm territory) and the interstellar void, amongst dozens of others. (Star Trek: Destiny)

What we see on the picture are the Tholians opening rifts to the Mirror Universe, capturing Terran starships (such as ISS Enterprise-F), with the KDF and the Federation rushing to intervene.

Not sure if that really is the Nexus but a subspace tear. But if it is the Nexus, Cryptic has to advance the timeline or give an explaination why it's early.

I honestly never liked that idea for the Destiny series with the Azure Nebula having those Transwarp Conduits.
NO to ARC!

I wonder if - by relating it to the Star Trek: Destiny timeline - that the Azure Nebula is the means by which we will see the Vesta being introduced?

Well, in THEORY, what Tolian Soran did to alter its path COULD theoretically swing it around a little earlier. True?

Or the new missions take place in 2410.

True.

But like to see how they advance the timeline and retaining the other 2409 storylines. Because one of the things Cryptic really does need to do is advance the game storywise and in a way a person that starts new, can start in early 2409 and go through all the missions and feel like time is progressing.

I don't see the Federation or the Klingons blowing up stars to alter the path of the Nexus.


It is plausible that the Hobus Event could've altered the course of the Nexus, however given the distance from the previous Nexus paths on the Star Charts, realistically it would be infinitely minor (after all the Amagosa star only changed the course by a few degrees and the Nexus was passing very close).
