Name the Alternate Universe!

We've got the normal Trek universe we're used to. We've got the Mirror Universe. Now...what name should we give this new Star Trek? Abramsverse? Nero-verse? The 'Verse of Two Spocks?

We need a name for this new Star Trek universe!

The alternate universe shall be called Old Trek. The new one shall be called Star Trek.

Re: Name the Alternate Universe!

Hmmm...lets see. We have the Mirror Universe, The Myriad Universes, The Shatnerverse. How bout we call the original universe the Prime universe and the new uiniverse the Secondary or Beta universe.

Re: Name the Alternate Universe!

Someone on another board recommended Ultimate Trek, just as how there's an Ultimate Marvel to normal Marvel. However, the counter to that was that Ultimate Marvel was a complete reboot that coexisted with Marvel, whereas nuTrek still had links to Trek Prime and thus not really independent.

Re: Name the Alternate Universe!

But what if this new universe actually is the Mirror Universe? and in the future, a civil war breaks out, and the terran empire is formed, but the federation is quashed? and the crew of the enterprise are turned to evil by some clever writers?


I go for NuTrek

B/c we already saw the origins of the Mirror Universe in Enterprise. (and it was quite good, too)
