Re: Kirk's status, new timeline- Really so far off? (Contains spoilers
I remember trekmovie.com saying 2 years ago that this will be a non-linear story-telling that will jump around in times. in fact, here is an article from trekmovie (from EXACTLY 2 years ago, to the day) that talks about jumping around in time:
Heh, I remember that one, or at least the bit about "then the cone of silence descended". A lot was little more than rumor at that time, and some bits have changed or disappeared, and some projected dates have altered a bit, but it's not radically different from what we've seen much more recently, or from bits we've collected in between.
I had a chain saw for a while. You find if you have a chain saw, you really don't need to use it very often – just walking up to the front desk holding it will usually get a lot done. — Joe Walsh
