Why do I care if this guy creates a seperate timeline if there's no danger to the original one?
Perhaps that's the real tragedy. Perhaps Spock couldn't save the original timeline since he ended up in/created a new, alternate timeline. We might never find out (other than in TrekLit, for what it's worth) what happened to the original timeline after Spock left.
