I support Abramsverse. It doesn't need to be any more complicated then him being the public face of this much-ballyhooed reboot. Even if he leaves, he'll always be the guy who started it.

(Whenever we get another reboot, we can make a portmanteau out of that guy's name.)
Agreed. Abramsverse is my default for the whole thing; unless I'm referring to something or someone specific, then I use (nu)<XYZ>, or <XYZ>(nu).

We could always go "Star Trek 2.0, ST2.0 or, as one girl has on my facebook ST^2 and ST(2).

See, now Abramsverse is just a whole lot simpler to say--plus I don't have to update my spellchecker.

Re: What does 'nu' mean?

I just think it's too inelegant and cheesy a label. I use "Abramsverse" in discussions -- it's not as irritating as "nu-"whatever -- but it's for want of something better.

I do like "Second Universe." Prime Universe, Second Universe -- it's got symmetry. It probably won't catch on, though, and it's useless as a label if there's no consensus understanding of its meaning.

Re: What does 'nu' mean?

Only Star Trek fans could get so heated about what to call the damn thing. Call it whatever the hell you want, as long as other people know what you're talking about.

Abrams-Trek. Which would work with "Roddenberry-Trek" & "Berman-Trek" that sometimes gets used to divvy up the eras.

So far, I'm only seeing one or two people getting worked up over it. I'm pretty sure most people don't really care one way or the other.

Re: What does 'nu' mean?

"This is TimelineBob. Timeline Bob has bitch tits."

Some of you are putting way, way too much time into thinking this out. Of all the ridiculous minutiae to obsess over.... i mean for crying out loud! I'd suggest telling you guys to all go out and get laid or something, but then I remember the crowd I'm talking to.

Lighten the fuck up.

Abramsverse is fine and the one that seems to have the most currency.

I particularly like how most of the thread is just a bit of fun, and the only ones who are swearing and getting worked up are the ones who are basically telling people to stop being nerds.
