The practicalities:
Star Trek is a reboot yes but its also a prequel.a 2009 movie set in the 1950's on a TOS timescale.
Oh, it's probably worth remembering that the movie isn't literally a prequel to the three seasons of TOS. As Spock states explicitly, whatever their futures used to be is no longer set in stone. We're looking at a brand-new timeline--and a brand-new version of the famous five-year-mission, which is bound to play out very differently than the version weve been watching for the last forty years.

For example: the fact that Vulcan is space-dust and Amanda is dead means that "Amok Time" and "Journey to Babel" can no longer fit into any future timeline. And you can forget about Amanda's cameo in "The Voyage Home," too.

The new future is a blank slate at this point. What happened last time around is irrelevant.
