That's the alternate timeline. NX-01 already had some form of structural integrity fields back in the 22nd century; different technical progression there.
Not neccessarily, there are things which speak for it being the alternate timeline (I suppose you mean the Abramsverse) and things speaking against that, like the last episode of Enterprise. If things are as muddled as Enterprise, I think it's a matter of opinion. Since I don't like NuTrek, but I like Enterprise (at least in part) I want it to be part of the prime timeline, so I'm searching for ways to reconcile that series with it.
