    As for beaming Romulus or Vulcan to safety with an Iconian planet beaming device? Yes or no -why? The time line is way off..

    Should they also include time travel with both planets or would that still upset the story arcs inside the trek multiverses and alt/time line scenarios?

    Is there any kind of rational fixing that would make sense and keep the past from destroying the future?

    How is the time line solved/fixed or do we just go situation to situation in a myriad of imaginational new themes with trek uniforms on?

    But will There be or are no more movies to make any more and the franchise should disband? Or NOT...

    Just so I'm clear, did you mean beaming Vulcan to a new location so as Nero couldn't find it?

    In a kind of alien intervention like--solution?
    -or beaming Romulus to safety before the nova?
    By this would either of these solutions continue the "saga" of the past and connect them to the powers of the future? Assuming the power existed in the far future or the far distant past?

    1. The Iconians could only travel between planets using their doorways. They didn't have the ability to move planets.

    2. There's no need to fix the Abramsverse timeline. That's why the alternate universe exists.

    3. Romulus destroyed in the prime timeline? Don't think that's gonna matter much since it's unlikely we'll be seeing the prime timeline post-Nemesis on screen again.

    1. I agree... I just don't want each new Abram to create a different Abramsverse of their own with trek uniforms
    2. But as for Iconian planet travel and or travel between the planet's --- there is fan fiction that uses this idea..as seen here...below-- in a youtube star trek fan fiction.
    3. So it is not anything original but a possible solution maybe.
    4. If there is an alternate universe created every time a fan writes/produces a fan story -- in star trek uniforms -- then where is the copyright infringement line draw really? or not drawn?
    5. Spock traveled to the Abramsverse via the destruction of Romulus... does this create liberties to travel between these universes --- ever again?
    6. If travel between universes becomes as popular as it did on DS9 - How many more "problems" would need fixing? or == do we just go situation to situation in a myriad of imaginational new themes with trek uniforms on? as I was saying.?

    You never know what's going to happen in the future of Star Trek, or what some network exec will think is marketable 20 years from now. Not saying it's likely to see Post-Nemesis prime universe Trek, just not completely impossible.

    The planet getting beamed away at the last second would make more sense than a black hole swallowing a planet despite having too small mass for any signifiant gravitational pull. A two pound black hole from the same distance has the same gravitational pull as a two pound rock.

    If you're going to recruit the Iconians for something though I'd want it to be something epic, not just plot magic to fix something that the writers would have license to ignore if they want anyway.

    There is a way to an epic=saga but I think mixing science fiction plots and scenarios would = cause too much copyright problems that it would render the story useless due to outside control issues with the limits and rules there of on the intellectual properties --(meaning - stepping on the toes of the great writers with what they have = written so far.)
