As this thread is about ST09, can it be moved there? I am sick unto death of threads about a film which has ZERO to do with Star Trek
in the forum dedicated to it. Hell, there's already a thread
in the I-X Movies forum largely dealing with this issue.
The film doesn't speak to ST. It is a reboot. The designs of ships and costumes don't represent those in the original timeline. The fates and backstories it postulates for its versions of the original characters do not speak to the originals nor alter them in any way. It has as much bearing as the Gold Key comics or LP audio adventures, namely none. It is as distinct a property from Star Trek
(1966) is from Batman
