If there's no continuity then... what's the point exactly?
Entertaining stories featuring interesting characters in novel situations?
It just makes it harder to care or be engaged.
Yeah, it's just not the same without that guy eating a peach just
out of shot...
Don't get me wrong. I like
internal continuity. It's a powerful element of world-building. But it's not the be-all end-all - and it never was even in the prime timeline. And once the reboot's happened and more importantly has succeeded
... isn't it time to move on? Prime's dead, and I don't mean Optimus. Star Trek is dead. Long live Star Trek.
