Star Trek: Nero #1 [Spoilers]

I can't say we learn anything significant in this issue or anything we hadn't already guessed. The art is good and much as we know it from Countdown.

The comic starts seconds after the destruction of the Kelvin. We find a Narada severely damaged. Shields down, weapons offline, engines failing...
But Nero is not worried. The ship will slowly heal itself. All he wants is to find Spock and use the Red Matter to destroy his enemies.
He does have a moment of weakness, where he toys with the thought of going straight to Romulus but the moment ends quickly.

As the Narada is slowly stabilizing all the Romulans are gathered to hear what Nero has to say. Some of them express their desire to go home, now that by a miracle they have been given a second chance.
Nero tells them that he will not go back until the Federation is destroyed but gives all those who want to leave a shuttle and permission to go.
But he is not as understanding as they thought. He uses the few torpedoes that are currently available and blows the departing shuttle to pieces.

As the Romulans now begin calculating where Spock's exit point will be, Klingon ships decloak and attack. The Narada, still heavily damaged, can not fight back.
After a brief exchange of words between Nero and Captain Kor of the Klingon Battlecruiser Klothos, the Klingons board the Narada.
A violent, bloody battle ensues but quickly the Romulans are neutralized and captured.
They and their ship are taken to Rura Penthe, where we see Nero in chains ready to be interrogated by Koth.
Koth tells him that he knows many things about them since not all his crewmates are as durable as him. He also expresses how curious he is about their ship, which contains technology they have never dreamed of. And it's all theirs now.

That's pretty much it for this issue.

I'm wondering what use the Klingons have for Robau's body, or if its going to be a plot point?

They will use it whenever they feel the need to overcompensate.

This looks good. Blast my decision not to buy single issues anymore and wait for the trades!

Had a look at it in Forbidden Planet yesterday. Looks good, but how come Kor has ridges?!! Shouldn't he be smooth-headed at this time?

The cure mightn't have worked and had worn off by the time of TOS?

And where did the Klingons get cloaking devices at this time? I thought they only got them with the Romulan alliance in the 2260s?

Because this is yet another non-canon comic book with lots of inaccuracies, just like Countdown was.

Pretend EVERYTHING has been rebooted. It's the only way the new film/universe makes ANY sense.

Between Robau, George Kirk and Christopher Pike, I'd like to think you'd have a good TV series or movie...

I can't say I disagree. Assuming you could get the same actors to play the parts.
Or do the voice work in an animated show.

While I'm perfectly willing to believe that Nero didn't so much create the new universe as become a part of it, meaning it always existed independantly from the primary one, I still like to believe the general history was predominantly the same prior to Nero's arrival. So we're still left with the questions of how these (admittedly rather minor) differences came about?
