Re: Romulus in Prime timeline [spoilers]

The Kelvin tech looked more advanced than that on Pike's Enterprise, which wasn't supposed to exist for a number of years yet.
Pike's crew used communicators that were VERY different. The TOS type shouldn't have shown up until sometime after the time period of THE CAGE.
Using theories outside the movie are we now, in the movie it never stats any of this in anyway all it says that past events have been changed creating a new future. The Kelvin teach looks different but no way can you prove its more advanced than the ENT. As for the cgae thing well thats just down to J.J not really caring that much about canon and who blames him.

The look of their tech is just plain WRONG, and I suspect this means the movie takes place in a similar but different universe, a universe which has just been made even more different by Nero's messing with its timeline
I suspect you say...well only onscreen counts not your suspects and onscreen it indicates past has been changed and the Kelvin is the same tech. How the hell does Nero go back in time make the Kelvin tech different ? the timeline has not been affected yet.

SPOCK prime acts like this his is Universe because it is he never hints once that his prime universe still is out there. The tech looks better because its a $150 million movie in 2009.

The original timeline likely remains, not because this is "only an offshoot", but because it was and is a parallel universe, and now we get to watch Star Trek start all over again in a universe we've never seen before, with who knows how many differences.
We get to see a new universe because the universe has been changed, the future is different but its still the same universe. Look at VOY & ENT and to extent TNG with that episode about that time traveller historian...Federation in the future protects the timeline so if changing the past just creates a seperate univrse why the hell would they care since there universe would be around, they care because its there universe that gets changed...they say they travel time not universes.

The only real problem is if the Hobus star happens how did the 29th cenury we saw ever occur thats because its a TV franchise to be changed at will for $$$'s

This is the prime universe 2.0 not Beta Universe
No new Star Trek TV series, the movies are making more money than ever before but are equally divisive, people are posting a lot less or have gone...For we are the Trekking Dead
