Re: Into Darkness ties to Star Trek XIII?

It was a nice visual and worked well in the movie.

Clearly, some really long-time Trek fans—who knows how many, but including fans of over forty years, such as me—really don't care if a planet named Delta Vega exists near or next to Vulcan in the nu-timeline.
And in the Prime timeline too - an Enterprise-E security officer mentioned spending time there in the novel Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony. Similarly, the Delta Vega at the edge of the galaxy is in the alternate reality also - Kirk and Spock stranded Gary Mitchell there in the comic adaptaion of "Where No Man Has Gone Before", as they did in The Original Series.

Bad Robot, yes. But there's nothing keeping the current creative staff from going their separate ways. So we could have new writers and a new director for Star Trek 2016.
Not to forget new actors playing the same characters, most likely.

That's fine, too. Trust me, my head's not exploding. Given the obsessiveness of Trek fans, dealing with the "issue" non-canonically, i.e. in the Lit, was a foregone conclusion.

Re: Into Darkness ties to Star Trek XIII?

We've got Cities all over the world that share names...

Why can't a few planets do so as well?

The computer was largely unhelpful and didn't tell Kirk which Delta Vega he is on. I mean, come on, what would you do if your GPS told you you're in London without telling you which London? What if you were in the wrong continent? Or planet? Or galaxy? Or universe? Or multiverse?

Doubtful, they tend to sign people to at least three picture deals for this sort of thing.

So Abrams can be wrong.

If you're in Kentucky and you think you might be in England, you have bigger problems than a faulty GPS.

I've got family that lives in a rural part of Kentucky...
I'm not so sure a few of their neighbors even know what a GPS is...

I doubt it. Beside Kirk doesn't meet Khan until 8 years after events that take place in the up coming movie. Also, in Space Seed, they don't know who Khan was. On the other hand. If Kirk meet Khan some years before the events in Space Seed? Then it would explain how Khan got the delta badge.
I don't think that Space Seed is reference here. The events in the new timeline could mean that Khan was discovered many years ago, maybe by April himself and recruited instead of fighting him. So Khan could be OK and explained OK, as his ship was out there in space all the time, not appeared just when Space Seed happen. I really think that if Harisson is Khan than he was found by April ...

Now THAT was completely pointless, as well as naming that planet Delta Vega in the first place.
The point was for longtime fans to go "A-ha".
Actually, the reallly longtime fans said "Why is Delta Vega next to Vulcan?"
Fan since '66 and I didn't really care.

Ditto. As far as I'm concerned, "Delta Vega" is to outer space what "Springfield" is to virtually every state in the union.

Fan since 1972 (syndication baby). But I must be a bad fan, because "Delta Vega" from WNMHGB didn't even dawn on me at the time. Shame on me for not being pedantic.
