Re: Did the ‘Enterprise’ Augment 3 parter contribute to Cumberbatch Kh
It would have made even more sense to forget previous continuity entirely and say the augments were newly developed. The fleet has just been decimated and Vulcan destroyed. Starfleet is at its weakest. What better time is there to institute a genetic engineering program from a purely militaristic point of view?
But they only had a year.
You get hurt, hurt 'em back. You get killed, walk it off.
