Okay, I thought you were using that point to justify the "timelines were always separate" argument. Apparently you haven't offered any particular justification for it, just asserted it as your preference and left it at that. So be it. You can believe that if you want, but it's not the creators' intent, so if there ever were a DTI or other tale commissioned to cross over the novelverse (or at least the Prime timeline) with the Abramsverse, it would have to be based on the prevailing assumptions of CBS/Paramount, so it would treat them as having a common history up until mid-March 2233. Not that I expect to see any such thing published by Pocket in the foreseeable future.
