Re: Is everything before the destruction of the kelvin exactly the sam
as the tos unverse? Or is this spock prime born universe different from the beginning? I know that anything is just probably conjecture at this point. Have the writers ever mentioned this?
That's what's assumed. I mean, as long as you accept Enterprise as a true prequel and the Enterprise-D didn't change the universe in Yesterday's Enterprise
, First Contact
(the Movie), DS9's Past Tense
, Scotty in IV
etc. They did play with the timeline in the 23rd and 24th Centuries which may explain the differences in technology we see in Enterprise versus the 23rd Century Enterprise.
So things may be more or less the same. But it's easy to explain away differences by the other changes in the timeline.
