There is not chance that this movie is intended to be in some kind of alternate time line.
Beg pardon? It's common knowledge by now that this is exactly what happens. Not only that, but it's an alternate timeline that *does not overwrite the original*.
Well, I have stayed too far away from spoilers I guess, other than watching the previews.

I have to say, setting this in an alternate time line is the stupidest thing I have ever heard, and I have been a defender this movie against criticisms with a wait and see it first attitude.

Somehow, someway, I have the deep, dark, feeling that by the time this Trilogy is done, Orci and Kurtzman are going to revisit our old friend.....The Temporal Cold War.

And they'll wish they hadn't.

Why do I care if this guy creates a seperate timeline if there's no danger to the original one?
Perhaps that's the real tragedy. Perhaps Spock couldn't save the original timeline since he ended up in/created a new, alternate timeline. We might never find out (other than in TrekLit, for what it's worth) what happened to the original timeline after Spock left.

Re: Relativity

You know, Relativity sure is kind of a weird name for a ship in Star Trek.

I mean, what are her sister-ships' names, the U.S.S. Geocentric Cosmological Model? The U.S.S. Ghosts Cause Cholera?

Re: Relativity

did they ever mention if this was a federation only operation or is time travel in the future a piece of tech that other factions/races/organizations are able to use and have at their arsenal?

...a small Vulcan time-ship (presumably Spock's, seen in the November and March trailers) and the Narada (Nero's ship, originally a mining vessel of some sort and not originally intended for time travel) and I think that's all we've been told about, officially speaking.
i meant the relativity. it seems like a federation ship but not sure if it's one of those things that may be built by federation but under the scrutiny of various other factions like how the stargate may be based in the united states but there is an international committee overseeing it's general operation and use.

Re: Relativity

I've always assumed the Relativity and other "timeships" had some sort of temporal shielding (insert Treknobabble here) that protected them from changes in the timeline in "their" universe. So yes, I would assume they would literally have all the time in the universe to fix things that happened in the past.

Okay, I see. The Relativity is a Federation Starfleet ship with a Starfleet crew, but the Memory Alpha article also mentions that the ship's dedication plaque contains reference to a Temporal Integrity Commission, the exact nature of which is not explained.

Wouldn't Captain Braxton or another member of the Federation's Temporal Branch be assigned to integrate the timelines?

Personally, I would live a happy life if I never heard of Captain Braxton and all the other 29th century nonsense again. I think it never made a lick of sense and (sadly) they took their own concept way too seriously.

Re: Paging Captain Braxton of the Federation Timeship Relativity...

Been discussed before, what happened, happened, heh.

But I agree with you, since people of the 29th century and on can scan time with sensors like sensors scan space, they should have seen instantly when the Narada went into the past, and went to investigate.

However, one reason they might not have is because it was a natural event in the timeline, and not a synthetic event.

For example, when Voyager went to 1996, it was an accident caused by a future time agent failing in his job to destroy Voyager, and they were pulled into the past.

When Spock destroyed the supernova with red matter, that created a time rift, but that was always meant to happen, or something, I dunno, now I'm confused.
