Re: Timeline branching going forward *spoilers*

Another divergence I think could be possible in a future movie is that instead of Sulu becoming captain of the USS Excelsior, he becomes captain of a new USS Kelvin and this new Kelvin is the Alternate Reality Starfleet's "Great Experiment".

I know there's been differences between this timeline so far and the prime one. So far though, the movie plots have kept the characters pretty much status quo.

For instance, for a moment I thought they might kill off Kirk, or have crew members actually leave the Enterprise for good.

I'm curious if you guys think they will use the "different timeline" in a major way going forward? Killing a major character, making Kirk/Spock turn evil, etc... or do you think they will try to avoid changing up the crew?
I think it's pretty clear...

This is not a new timeline, it's the prime timeline that was affected by Nero's incursion.

I don't think they'll kill anyone but one of the support characters is a possibility.
I imagine Chekov running back to his quarters and doffing that red shirt as quickly as possible.

Logic dictates that timeline branching happened when Sphere-bulders got the Xindi to attack Earth, and that's the timeline Nero's (Spock's) wormhole led to, not the one TOS took place in.

Well, if Carol Marcus ends up with anyone other than Kirk, that is something. Ditto Uhura staying with Spock.

The destruction of Vulcan is BIG. Or it could be. Should be.

One can imagine something impressive happening if the Doomsday Machine is discovered sooner. Who knows what civilization might have been destroyed before it ran into the Constellation? Maybe somebody who'd make a major impact on the timeline?

Gary Mitchell. He's presumably still alive out there somewhere. But without godlike powers that warp his personality.

Unless, from TOS' perspective, those changes were always a part of history. After all, there was no big Delphic Expanse in TOS or TNG. Why? The NX-01 crew ended it.

Just like the guy who invented transparent aluminum in TVH.

From the in-universe standpoint, there's absolutely 0 evidence to support that, whilst evidence to the contrary is there in abundance.

I doubt anyone would believe Kirk would stay dead. Even if Kirk had stayed dead in STID, we'd spend the next 3 years with threads on how he's coming back, even more accusations of copying and rehashing etc etc
And of course Pine is signed for 2 more movies.
So Pine is signed on for 4 movies?

I thought it was 3, but I'd be happy with 4!

Original deal was for a Trilogy. Lately, people have been saying he's signed for 2 more. Not sure if they're going on old info, or if he signed for 1 more, or maybe the Contract said 3 with an option for 1 more? But, yea, it's become popular info that he's signed for 2 more.

Cool, I'm sure everyone else would follow suit.

There is no evidence to the contrary.

Actually, it IS a new timeline. It branches off from the prime one, but doesn't replace it.
