It's also an alternate reality with certain changes/differences to it on a minor level. In other alternate realities, there are changes/differences which are on a major scale as well. The possibility of the NuTrek universe having both minor AND major changes/differences which alter (or even accelerate) events in their future is my point. Budget Writers Producer Film technology - - wait, are we talking about WTF may or may not happen in the future of an alternate fake universe, or are we talking about real life? I was under the impression we were talking about events which may or may not happen in a possible future in a movie, NOT why things happened in the movie due to real life.
