Re: Time travel in the new universe
^While it would be hilarious if Kirk et al. traveled into the past and ran into themselves, I personally subscribe to the theory that when you travel into the past you're traveling into a different timeline from the one in which you originated, which in this case would mean they'd travel into a past from which they hadn't attempted to borrow some whales yet.
