QonoS and its moon

No idea if this has been brought up anywhere (probably, but I can't find it). What's up with that half-exploded moon orbiting Kronos? The nerd is me instantly thought, "Praxis," but it's way too early for Praxis to have exploded...or is it? Could it have blown up early in this timeline? Am I reading too much into it?

Any thoughts?

Re: QonoS and its moon

I always figured "overmining" was an excuse for conducting subspace weapons tests on Praxis, which explains partly why it exploded the way it did (subspace shockwave event) and the ban on such weapons on the Kithomer Accords afterwards.

The Narada event happening on their doorstep probably had the Klingons stepping up their production/testing. With similar results it would seem.

My guess is Praxis, and clearly part of the surface of Kronos is abandoned and laid waste. I really like this kind of unrefered to tie in to the prime universe...and it looked fantastic on screen.

I also thought it was a nod to Praxis. I am quite sure not everything in each universe is happening in tandem. Chemahkuu's explanation (above) sounds good to me.

Re: QonoS and its moon

I thought the same when I saw the film. Q'onos with a smashed moon and half the planet uninhabitable? What else could it be.
I really like that in this timeline, lots of the same stuff is happening but entirely out of order. Makes me wonder what's coming next?

Sounds logical.

"Overmining Praxis" was never anything more complicated than Meyer's clumsy transposition of the Chernobyl disaster into his superficial allegory.

Yep, works for me! Poor Praxis, forever doomed to blow up.

I feel bad for Martok. His hometown is uninhabitable in this reality.

Exactly. The "Nero event" kicked off something of an arms race in the JJ-timeline, so both the Feds and KDF stepped up their game. So as you said, the KDF just caused Praxis to explode sooner than it would have otherwise.

Re: QonoS and its moon

It is a reboot.

In 10 foot high letters>>> Anything from the entire Prime Universe canon they want to hijack for a nustory is fair game.

I wouldn't be in the least surprised if the Prometheus showed up in the next one!

In Universe, Nero's incursion accelerated everything in this timlene, blah, blah, blah.

Not really sure what point you're trying to make.

I'm sorry RoJoHen.

It probably is an early blown Praxis. 'Why' is anybody's guess.

Possibly. Didn't Martok say that his home province was kind of a dump anyway?

Why? Because it was a homage to STVI. Obviously the producers felt that the audience was smart enough to get the reference without it having to be spoon-fed to us.
