Was perusing the novelization of Star Trek (2009) the other day and noticed that in the scene where cadets are being assigned out to shuttles for assignment, one of the names called was familiar. And Klingon. Korax. This on page 81 of the trade-paperback edition, second line from the top. Apparantly Korax is being assigned to the Drake. So. Was this just a clever in-joke courtesy of ADF, or are there larger implications here as to just how different the Kelvinverse is from the Prime trek reality?
