How does IFM make assertions about how the 2009 movie's timeline came about?
Sorry I meant "Last Star Trek Movie timeline" came out.
We know how it came about -- we were told in the movie itself. And I don't remember anything in IFM that was tied into the '09 movie in any major way. There were moments when I thought it was setting up an explanation of Scotty's knowledge of transwarp beaming, but it didn't go that way after all.
I thought that was the point of all that conservation of reality guff? It came across to me as throwing a bone to the more nerdy fans, who needs everything explained, obviously I misread it.
