Let's talk about the movie for a change. For me, the Kelvin sequence was perfectly executed. In many respects, it made the whole film hang together. I think someone said it gave him goosebumps. It did for me.
The Kelvin really was the prequel element. Divergent timelines and all make the rest of the film a new direction and departure more than a prequel. I know there's a cult of Robau, but honestly, I'm curious about the Kelvin and its crew. I hope someone explores this ship and its background more thoroughly, either in novels or in a TV series (I can dream).
