Re: Countdown to Darkness - Review and Discussion
^ It seems obvious that, in TOS, Harry Mudd is older than Kirk. So naturally there would have to be a Mudd in the Abrams timeline as well as in the prime version.
And we have no idea when first contact with the Bajorans took place. Thus it's not entirely unusual for Harry to have fathered a child by a Bajoran woman - in either timeline.
