    And this somehow conflicts with a Prime continuity that never said anything about whether or not any ships were "super scaled" in 2233?

    How is a change happening after 2233 supposed to be evidence of a preexisting alternate timeline?

    Cochrane was from Earth, but moved to Alpha Centauri. Seems simple enough. Fits nicely with his abrupt disappearance.

    The cynicism of FC Cochrane was explained pretty well in the novelization. He had a severe case of bipolar disorder, and with WWIII was off his meds, so was self-medicating with alcohol. Watching everything he cared about go up in nuclear smoke made him couch everything in cynical terms, but that a lot of it was an act to help him cope.

    FreeDictionary definition of "turban": 1. A traditionally Muslim headdress consisting of a long scarf of linen, cotton, or silk that is wound around a small cap or directly around the head.

    Certainly looked like a generic "headdress consisting of a long scarf of linen, cotton, or silk that is wound around a small cap or directly around the head" to me. I never said it was a Sikh turban.

    Its a non-canon explanation.
    They'll be a non-canon explanation for Khan's ethnicity no doubt. I think its supposed to be in the comics.

    I've no idea how true it is, but I've read here that someone originally wanted Cochrane to be female in First Contact.:wtf:

    If it was Moore, then it probably would have worked really well.

    From the Metamorphosis script;

    Being rejuvenated from a tired old man to a young vibrant man would do wonders for ones appearance and personality, don't you think? Plus it nicely ties in with with his disappearance in Enterprise.



    To the OP, It's a reboot. If something in NuTrek aligns with canon then do a happy dance. If something doesn't align then our options are simple; like it or lump it.

    Cochrane a female? That was Brannon Braga. He didn't know TOS, and when he and Moore were writing FC and looking for a love interest for Picard suggested Cochrane because he thought he was a she.

    By "different" I assume you mean an actual personality. ;)

    He was a she? That would've been a walk on the wild side. ;)
