    I really wish a line about this has been included, because it would have gone a long way in explaining some of the staggering plot holes.

    Still love the movie, though.

    Re: Deleted scene where Spock explains how the timeline "healed itself

    While watching the film for the first time in the theater, I mentally inserted a Spock-ian explanation ala City on the Edge for the 'currents and eddies' of time bringing Kirk and him together.

    Never been a problem for me... although the 'destiny' lines do tip toward SW a bit too much (something i also felt on first viewing)

    The heroes of the show have wound up together in every alternate universe story this franchise has done.

    Actually, I can think of four off the top of my head.

    And that number increases if you include planet killing lifeforms.

    If the timeline can heal it's self, will Vulcan go back together?

    Yeah, it does go a long way to explain some of the plot holes. But to be honest, it didnt effect me, cos i had my own way of explaining certain events that were not explained in the movie.

    But for the general audinece, i doubt they really cared, aslong as they got the jist of it, that was enough i suppose, without it being clogged up with temporal babble etc.



    And the headaches start. :lol:

    Re: Deleted scene where Spock explains how the timeline "healed itself

    Oddly enough, before the new film was even dreamed of, i used to wonder how the mirror universe (presumably being an alternate timeline itself) was so frequently similar to the prime universe (crew members ending up on the same ship repeatedly, for example). I had always theorized some kind of temporal force or echo (call it destiny if it pleases you) bringing events into alignment so that things, while different, are also sort of the same. Seems to apply here also.

    They're only coincidences if you view these folks through the lens of TOS. Otherwise, it's simply happenstance that this group comes together.

    Nope, but there is a scar.

    Yeah, that is a cool concept. Like the timeline is some type of intelligent being trying to heal itself. Wish ours would heal itself so I can be somewhere else. :shifty:

    I'VE come to accept the new timeline as wholly separate in most respects from the old, classic and well-trodden one. I guess in the TREK universe they might be the same in some quantum respects but for the sake of the audience's sanity and even many Trekkers' we should just consider this movie the start of a new and uncorrected timeline that skewed BACK TO THE FUTURE II-style from the original one and exists in its own right.

    Yeah, that's the plot of the next movie. Khan detonates the Genesis Device, destroys the universe, and it reassembles correctly.

    And then Christopher Lloyd's Commander Kruge rigs a Bird-of-Prey with a Mr. Fusion and hits 88 light years per hour so he can go back to 2233 and prevent Nero from ever arriving to begin with.
