Re: One Year Gap (spoilers, kinda)

My guess is IDW's After Darkness comic beginning at the end of the month will cover anything significant that happened in this one year gap.

Re: One Year Gap (spoilers, kinda)

I don't know why, but the thread title makes me want to put on Bear McCreary's "One Year Later" track from the second season of Battlestar Galactica.

According to the IDW the events in the after darkness comics take place in 2259 one week after the very last scene of the movie and they're aboard the Enterprise refit not another ship.
I'm not sure anymore that there is an actual one year gap in the end.
here's a preview of the comic where you can see the ship:

I also have the novelization by Alan Dean Foster and the one year gap isn't mentioned either.

Honestly I think some of the characters were temporarily re-assigned to other ships in the fleet. Scotty was on Earth, leading the Enterprise repair/refit. As for Kirk, I have no idea. Part of that time was, no doubt, spent recovering from the experience of death, perhaps he also went to the Academy to teach. He may have also done a brief media circuit as a Starfleet hero.

Also, I'm sure that at some point the senior staff was briefed on the new Five Year Mission. Maybe other ships already on the mission have supplied Starfleet with initial impressions of what they're finding on the frontier and the Enterprise staff is taking the lessons to heart?
I thought this would be the first five year mission?
Yeah, Spock mentions that it was the first time a mission that long had be tried at the end of the film.

Plus at the beginning form how I interpreted kirk and Spock's discussion on the way to meeting Pike only one ship was going to get the mission. So I doubt if anyone else got it the Enterprise would be doing one.

Kirk was obviously taking refresher courses on the Prime Directive and Report Writing.

From Pine's delivery of the line, it's ambigous if "one year ago" means the movie's main events, or if he's referring to when he first officially took command of the Enterprise a year earlier (at the end of XI).

Personally, I prefer to assume the final scene is set a year after the main movie, it explains how the Enterprise was repaired, and Kirk and crew would likely need to stick around for a year anyway, for inquiries and tribunals which likely had to follow everything that went down. Really, a year is still not enough time for all that, but maybe beuracracy improves in the future?

Plus by placing the After Darkness comic in 2260, it's exactly seven years prior to Amok Time. That's kind of crucial to the plot of After Darkness.

No it really isn't seeing as Amok Time was the first time Spock dealt with that particular issue, hence why he would have thought it might not have been a problem he would have to deal with at the time.

maybe Kirk was talking about the first time he got aboard the enterprise and the ceremony being one year after the battle of vulcan.

as for Spock's pon farr, unless they have some plot twist and someone had provoked it artificially it's possible that the traumatic events happened to him in the last year (mom's death, vulcan destroyed then Pike, Kirk, Khan) has made him have his first pon farr sooner.

Re: One Year Gap (spoilers, kinda)

I don't think there was anything ambiguous about Kirk's "one year ago" at all. He plainly said that the previous events of STID had occurred a year before the final scene.

^This. He describes how they are paying homage to those who lost their lives a year ago. Only the fan-wankiest of fans could re-interpret such a clear reference.

Re: One Year Gap (spoilers, kinda)

The comics aren't 'canon' so they can say what they like. But one week after the movie is one week after Kirk sets out on the 5 year mission which is a year after 'The Vengeance' crashed into San Fran.

I don't think its Fan Wank to want to sort out the dates though, just to be obsessed about them. I prefer the term fanon which I learnt here.

All I meant was by having After Darkness in 2260, Spock's next ponn farr will be in 2267 (same year as Amok Time) and from there he'll be on the same ponn farr cycle he was on in the Prime Universe.
