Re: Kirk's status, new timeline- Really so far off? (Contains spoilers

The film will only show one universe -- albeit we may be told that Nero somehow "changed the future" of this universe.
Assuming you are correct and only one universe is shown, how can this be an origins story, if we only see the altered universe? If Kirk's future is the only thing altered, I suppose you can say it is, but if the whole TREK universe is altered, then Abrams and company have made an origins movie that doesn't even tell the story of the origins of the characters we love and the movie is a failure from step one.
