Re: Is everything before the destruction of the kelvin exactly the sam

Agreed. The timeline may have been parallel to the Prime Universe, running more or less the same with some minor variations - up until Nero, that is - but the Abramsverse was, otherwise, a totally different universe from the one we knew from day one. Had Nero not intervened, we would have had a thirty-something Kirk take command of the Enterprise in the late 2260's, yes - but it would have been a slightly-older Pine, Quinto and the new cast, with the new patterned uniforms, on a not-quite-as-advanced Enterprise that (inside and out) would have looked like a cross between the Kelvin and the TMP refit (and not much like the TOS version at all).

This is a total reboot. The producers didn't want to call it such because they were afraid of alienating/scaring off the long-time franchise fans, but that's what it is. It is to the Prime Universe what the Ultimate Marvel Comics are to the regular Marvel line.
