Re: Has anyone else noticed the major plot flaw in TWOK?
Remember the ENT episode Twilight. Where NX-01 and over 6000 humans settled on Ceti Alpha V. So even 100 years before "Space Seed". Earth Starfleet knew of the Ceti Alpha system.
While in a real world context. This is addition of an event into a gray area because it's a prequel series decades after Space Seed and TWOK. However in the context of the Star Trek Universe, Starfleet always knew about the Ceti Alpha system.
Those events also happened in an alternate timeline in which Earth was destroyed. Don't assume they would apply in the primary universe.
