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.
As some are fond of saying around here, "it's all fiction." And so I have no problem with that. Besides which the original creators' intent is now moot since history in the late 20th century did not unfold as they had speculated. That certainly doesn't ruin the series for me.
Which why their "speculations" are ignored once they become outdated.

The Speculation is "bathwater", while Star Trek is the "baby". I say dump the bathwater once it's "dirty".
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.
