For me Star Trek being an alternate reality takes something away from the appeal of the show. YMMV.
Mine definitely varies.
Mine too. I'm totally not seeing what is taken away by Trek being an alternate reality from ours.
Part of it is about what the "authors" intended and what they put on the screen. They always presented Star Trek as having the same past as what ever the present was. (be it Tomorrow Is Yesterday
, The Voyage Home
, Future's End
or Carpenter St
). The alternate reality explanation is just to fannish for my taste.
