    It's all gone, Timeline and Cannon - Gone.

    Assuming there will be additional movies, Paramount has made a profit with every Trek movie, just pretend every Trek TV episode and movie are all individual and unrelated.

    I assume that a few people will call them "Real Trek" and "Fake Trek". ;)

    (The question is: Which is which?)

    We could start numbering Star Trek's alternate timelines (there have already been quite a lot, just have a look and check) like Marvel Comics' alternate universes... Federation-1 up to God knows what.

    [But that's a job for the Trek historians and retconners...]

    Me too. It totally works for putting the OT and the NT in proper perspective.

    The Bright Mirror Universe... unless by some unlikely happenstance this movie turns out to be a POS. In the case of the latter, then it'll be called the BM universe.

    "oldTrek" and "nuTrek" is what I'll use.

    "Trek-That-Was" is cute, but both too cute and clumsy.

    TITS = The Initial Timeline Stream

    NUTS = Nu Timeline Stream

    That could work!

    [LEFT]This is how I see it...[/LEFT]


    ENT = Enterprise (in a class all by itself, & you can interpret that anyway you want.);)

    TOS = Classic Trek

    TNG = The Next Generation (obviously, TNG/DS9/VOY)

    NuTrek = 2009 On. (Till somebody changes things again... :wtf:)
