Re: Is the "Yesterday's Enterprise" alt-timeline the REAL one?

As much as I hate to admit it, I agree with Christopher in these matters:

He was puzzled as to WHY you bothered to Spoiler code it, so the "genius" crack was unwarranted.

My pet theory is that the JJverse flows from the First Contact/Enterprise universe, created by the Borg incursion. The monster ships and seemingly accelerated technology is a consequence of Federation scientists dissecting leftover Borg tech, and a much more powerful Section 31 pushing a beefed up Starfleet to protect Earth from the horrors they know are waiting for humanity.

Why the unnecessary comment. If he thought it worthy of concealment, it is his call, not yours.

This debate has been going on for a while. There is a small group that's upset about the seeming lack of spoiler codes used when discussing novels and other works of fiction, even if said works have been out for years.

I never saw it as much of an issue. Better to be too cautious in regards to their use than not enough.

First Contact and ENT are part of the existing timeline. They're not a new one. They were always supposed to happen.

And both are common to the prime and Abrams timelines.

In just that episode, Riker and Troi were inflicted with a TERRIBLE aging virus. Thankfully, Crusher was able to find the cure and reverse its effects before we got back to their scenes in Pegasus!

People can still have thier personal canon and continuity. I don't watch much ENT at all so I could easily see how the JJ universe began with First Contact and the Enterpise D helping with the first warp flight.
