Of course it isn't. It's only 2013. It doesn't come into existence until 2161.

Your insistence on not taking fictional creations seriously is most logical.

Knock it off, already!

I only know the real video from my daughters playing it. God, that was funny.

I believe the following is my reply to the original observation about the Federation.

Here's a stray thought: What if Khan's sleeper ship, Botany Bay, was once found by Captain Robert April's earlier Enterprise - and Khan and his Augments took over the ship and... abandoned April and his crew on Phaedus?

Would they spill that big of a plot point in a comic after spending years carefully hiding what the villain actually is?

Interesting that we still don't get to see Peter Weller or Nolan Noth in this iteration.

Spock could have survivor's syndrome personified in the death of his mother. If only 10,000 did make it off that planet, a lot of them may be wondering if it was luck or logic that saved them. And why them? They may also have a particularly tough time dealing with the mindlessness of it all. There was no logic in what Nero did. This stoic race was almost wiped out by an act of pure passion for no reason other than the blind hatred of one individual -- Spock Prime, and something that happened in another universe. Vulcans also might not be as jaded towards senseless violence as, say, humans are, and it's particularly tougher for them to cope with than they expected. After all, they do feel.

And, if Spock's still feeling that bad about it, how do you think Chekov feels? If he'd just been able to get a lock a tenth of a second sooner -- . Don't think, "Is there anything different I could've done?" hasn't run through his mind at night more than a few times?
If you read the Star Trek Ongoing series of comics, you'll see an issue dealing with how the Vulcans feel about what happened.

It may not be a spill. Yet.

Possible spoilers from the cover of Star Trek Ongoing #21, set AFTER the next movie...

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

Do we know for sure issue 21 is set after the movie? That seems awfully quick. The Ongoing series didn't even begin until two years after Trek XI, and it was several months after that any IDW comic dealing with the movie was released, and that was just Nero's sidestory.

EDIT: Never mind. Just did some research and indeed it is set after the movie. Okay, but still that cover doesn't prove anything. I didn't expect for one minute that any of the main cast would leave, and the absence of Carol Marcus from that cover means nothing since we still don't know what her role in the movie is.
