Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

I voted for no, keep the nu timeline going. And here's why:

The timeline as I see it goes right along happily until First Contact. That trip back in time by the Borg and Picard's crew screwed the timeline in the direction of Enterprise. Ever wonder why the Vulcans kept holding the humans back in relation to technology? Forget the horsesh-t about "not being ready", its that the Vulcans knew about the bits of Borg in the Arctic circle and wanted to make sure we could handle that kind of threat instead of allowing us to send spindly little speed machines into the great unknown. Anyway, since the timeline was already messed up by First Contact, ST09 didn't *actually* reboot anything. *THE REBOOT WAS ENTERPRISE*. Yes, the Narada's arrival messed things up too, but at that point, the alternate timeline was already 172 years old, so calling it an alternate alternate is pointless when we don't know how the NX-01 would have altered things before the Narada arrived.

On that note, notice how Kirk's crew was so much better at resetting the timeline BY SHEER LUCK than Picard's crew was when they actually tried to set things straight?

And, similarly to the situation with oldBSG, the fact that certain fans of oldTrek aren't satisfied isn't really hurting nuTrek, either at the box office or in the overall critical reception.
And some of us old-timers are perfectly fine with the new Trek doing things differently. Trek was never meant to be some sacred cow that can only be approached in a strict, fundamentalist fashion. Ditto for BSG.

It's an interesting theory, but not one I buy. Seven referred to First Contact's events in Relativity so she had knowledge. That alone connects First Contact to the rest of the "prime" universe and with Enterprise being they sent the signal out.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

The tie-in episodes of Enterprise were good, enough to count them as Prime, but I wasn't a fan of that TNG holographic recap ending.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

I want the prime timeline back because I love the setting in terms of ships, characters, politics of the different races. But I would also like to see new writers who could rejuvenate the prime timeline with fresh ideas.

Cool! It's a shame we didn't get to see her ride up to the Enterprise.

I wonder if IDW saw that video....

^A female Kirk wouldn't work because the things that makes James T. Kirk a stud would make Jamie T. Kirk a whore.

Gender standards aside, a female Kirk would probably be as good as her counterpart.

In your eyes. Not in the eyes of the future where such crap has been dispensed with.
