    The original script for ST 2009 had the now-Kelvin named "Iowa."

    Pity that it's only an urban legend that the ship destroyed in ST09 was to be the TOS Enterprise. I admit I would like to have seen that.

    The way I see it, Nero's arrival is into the timeline that was already changed previously by the Ent E crew that was altered by Picard and crew's actions in First Contact.

    So does that alter or erase from the timeline what we saw in TOS? Some complain that Trek09 did that but in reality FC did that.

    Neither. If you start watching Trek with TOS then TNG then DS9 (when that starts during the 6th season of TNG), then VOY then First Contact, and then accept that ENT occurs in a new separate timeline leading up to the incursion of the Narada, ( with pos Discovery being included in this timeline, b4 the arrival of the Narada). I personally enjoy watching TNG, DS9, VOY, and the TNG movies in their stardate order.

    Iowa is a much better name for a ship.

    Or what happened in FC was how the timeline always was, and therefore nothing changed.

    Maybe for an American battleship. But naming a science-oriented space ship after William Thomas Kelvin seems fairly reasonable.

    It can be viewed/interpreted both ways. But keep in mind that the events of Regeneration wouldn't have occurred without the events of First Contact.

    But, a Starfleet ship would never be associated with an American warship, or acknowledge the United States of America.

    That is how I see things too. I see ENT, DISC and the Rebooted movies all in the same timeline.

    For fans that enjoy all of Trek including comics and novels (including the ancient ones that contradict on screen facts), it can be an acceptable point of view.

    The what now? :lol:

    There have been plenty of Starfleet ships which have had American-derived names.

    Kelvin wasn't his name. And I think it's "Thomson"

    I thought the Kelvin was named for Abrams uncle?
