Re: How would Sarek explain Spock 'Prime' to the other Vulcan survivor
Well, it's not a fuck-up in the timeline. It's a NEW timeline.
Well that's debatable.
The Kirk character in the movie also shares my opinion about how time travel works in his universe.
And the Spock Prime character, if he is indeed supposed to be the same as in TOS, did slingshot around the sun to travel along one timeline.
So even if the Red Matter stuff caused a special case of time travel and parallel universe travel, they would still be able to slingshot around a sun to prevent the destruction of Vulcan in that particular parallel universe.
They could do that to prevent any number of disasters in the Prime Universe. Yet they haven't.
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.
