Re: Klingon-Federation War of 2372-3

What it comes down to is that you are saying that the Federation would lose the 2372 Klingon war in the prime timeline because a ship which looks similar on the outside and has the same name was involved in the losing end of an entirely different war that started decades earlier for entirely different reasons in a different timeline.

It's ludicrous because what you're basically saying is that the political situation, military situation, including troop and crew postings, technology, and territorial conditions between 2372 and 2373 in the prime timeline are exactly the same as the period of time between 2340s and 2360s in an alternate timeline which, as evidenced on screen, are entirely different.

Even something as small as the fact that Gowron is in charge of the Klingon side of the war in the 2370s is enough to change the entire thing.
