Who says Romulus will be destroyed in this reality? It was already a bit different to begin with,
Only in as much as giving Trek a much needed visual upgrade. In-universe, it's the same.
Chekov is older, no George Kirk Jr. that we know of, Pike is older, technology seems a little more advanced and similar to what it would be in the late 23rd century, more aliens are in Starfleet at this time - just 5 things I can think of off the top of my head that prove the NuTrek universe has some distinct differences.
That's at least 5 differences before Spock and Nero show up, and there's no way to conclusively say there aren't
any more on either a minor or
major level. Fortunately, Parallels
implies either is possible.
