Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.
If anything, all the temporal incursions were supposed to ultimately result in the Prime Universe as we knew it in TOS.
Which of course makes no sense.
But I half-wonder if despite this intention, the Temporal Cold War and ENT's many retcons wound up inspiring the "alternate universe" reboot.
