I just watched Star Trek (2009) movie on DVD last night. I liked it in the theater and I enjoyed the “reboot” of the classic series. But if the timeline has been changed that means that some classic Trek adventures won’t happen. Just off of the top of my head:
[li]Maybe I missed it, but didn’t Kirk have a brother in TOS? If his brother does not exist thanks to the timeline being altered, then will the episode with the Fried Egg Monsters (I can’t recall the name) happen? In that episode Kirk went to visit his brother and only his nephew survived the attack on the planet. (also we find out that Vulcans have an inner eyelid) [/li][li]In The Original Series Kirk says that he was an officer on the USS Farragut. (Can’t remember the ep. name) One of his junior officers is the son of the former captain of that ship. This man becomes integral in the plot to destroy the blood sucking cloud monster. But in the new timeline Kirk didn’t surve on the Farragut. So perhaps the Enterprise will not encounter that threat.[/li][li]In the Original Series The Federation is unaware that Romulans and Vulcans are pretty much the same race. They had never seen a Romulan until the episode where they see the Romulan Commander on the screen. But now they’ve seen Nero. Will that alter things in the new timeline in any way?[/li][li]The Menagerie won’t happen unless its heavily retconned. Captain Pike was last seen in a wheelchair but otherwise healthy, not a mute horribly scarred crippled man like in that episode.[/li][li]Amok Time won’t happen since T’Pring was squished into a singularity with the rest of Vulcan. Unless its retconned to say she was off planet at the time, I guess. [/li][/ul]
What other episodes or adventures from the classic series do you think may or may not happen in the new timeline?
