So this is one more guess about April.

April as drawn in the comic looks like character actor Nolan North.

Yeah, he does. Andwe know that North has a role in STiD so it's possible...

Re: [SPOILER?] to be in the film?

I read the comic.
* Phaedus was surveyed five years ago by a Starfleet vessel, approximately 2253 or 2254
* The Phaedans are using older model Starfleet tricorders with universal translators and are wielding phaser rifles
* Captain Robert April commanded what he described as "...a ship called Enterprise..."
* Captain Robert April is wearing a variant of the Starfleet uniform

I don't have an interpretation of these facts, but they lead somewhere.

^And the Prime Directive seems to be an issue here as well.
The Phaedans are supposed to be at the Roman Empire level of civilization but April gives them all the advanced tech.

Seems reminiscent of Tracy's actions in Omega Glory. One hopes minus the American accoutrements.

Re: [SPOILER?] to be in the film?

The world (Phaedus) being different from what we know is the name of the world at the beginning of the film, (I forget, had shots) may mean this is the beginning of a 'string of prime directive violations' which April, (& Cohorts) could be behind all of them. It's beginning to gel!

There is not much difference between the two planets. Both are class M, perhaps with gravity like Earth, except for the type and degree of civilization of humanoids.

Re: [SPOILER?] to be in the film?

Probably have to read the other comics to find that out, I'd guess. That's what I plan to do.

There's nothing to explain for now, it's a mystery.
We wait and see how it all fits together when the next issues come out.

You'll find out in the next issues of the comic. All we know is that April commanded the Enterprise for an indeterminate amount of time in the prime universe when it was launched, around 2245. But the timelines split in 2233, and the way Countdown to Darkness April says "a ship called Enterprise" suggests there was *another* USS Enterprise between the timeline split in 2233 and the one we saw built and launched in the last movie, in 2258.

Archer's Enterprise, perhaps? It could still be around when the split occurred.

Archer's Enterprise would be 82 years old as of 2233. I don't know offhand the design life of the NX class, but I'd be real surprised if it was over 40 years.

Maybe April's Enterprise was closer to the old Connie we all know and love (not the nuConnie).

On that note, it is ever established that the new Enterprise *is* still Constitution class? Because with the timeline divergence in 2233, that would put the start of the Constitution Class Development Project either just after the Narada attack or already in progress. Either way, it's not a stretch to imagine the Constitutions being rushed into service with more conventional tech while the new Enterprise is designed as the flagship and possibly its own class.

It was,but in the ship's dossier in the movie's official site.

Re: [SPOILER?] to be in the film?

I don't put much stock in those dossiers. Nero's dossier said something about him having solved Romulus' longstanding energy crisis by locating vast dilithium deposits on Delta Vega, which makes no sense since both the Delta Vega in The Original Series and the one in STXI are Federation outposts (the latter in the Vulcan system!)
