continues storylines from "Star Trek Online" and features the handover of the Enterprise
captaincy from Data (IDW's "Countdown"), now in his professor role from "All Good Things...", to the Andorian, Shon, for the launch of the Enterprise
-F. Also clarified is the fate of the B-4.
I'd much rather have Data as the captain of the Enterprise
fiction, than a character I don't know and don't care about.
J.J. Abrams didn't change Star Trek, audience expectations did.
