Merry Christmas everyone. I've seen the announcement on the board about Smith writing the next movie so its almost official. Exciting. I'm no astrophysicist and I'm not up to the latest theories on time travel and duplicate universes. And I'm guessing that most of the general audience is like me. I know that the Kelvin Universe is an additional universe in relation to the Prime Universe but thats only because I'm on the forums and read the books. Its not stated in any of the three movies and its a different theory from most of the existing Star Trek lore which says if you go back in time and break something you can fix it and not create a new universe. So I'd actually be surprised if QT knew about it. Saying that after talking to Abrams I'm sure he'd be told but as none of the duplicate universe stuff is said onscreen then by the stroke of a pen as you say maybe the Kelvin Universe could be wiped out and the Prime universe restored. Just depends on what they want. They've done it with Spiderman. Saying that I think it would be stupid to wipe out the Kelvin Universe when they've gone to all that trouble to create it. I don't think I could handle a new new Kirk and Spock but then again they're not catering for me.
