Re: so ST 11 is another timeline
I'm beginning to think this is completely different Universe,even before the Narada showed up. There are too many inconsistencies in technology for this just to be a different branch of the timeline from when the Narada shows up.
Which is fair enough considering Into Darkness
. But I'm happy with the explanation offered by the writers.
