Is it an alternate timeline or universe?
 
Which is it, regardless of interveiws and stuff what do you think?

Well, an alternate universe is a completely seperate universe from all other Trek mythos (such as the Mirror Universe, & maybe the Yest. Enterprise universe)

While an Alternate Timeline was faithful to the "Main" timeline up to a certain point, where it was changed.

This film has a timeline that is completely normal up to when the Narada attacks the USS Kelvin. The moment that happens we have an alternate timeline.

Not so sure about the last part, I think there's something a little more to it than that.

It's the same. Another universe = another timeline.

I think whatever happens in this movie, timeline or alternate reality, I think the reason for the movie is Spock knows that Nero intends to mess with the timeline by killing Kirk, and he (spock) is going back to fix things and set them aright. Of course you know what they say about opinions:001_tongue:

Question:

Captain Tom Coughlin 04-02-2009 03:16 PM

I voted for changing the "main" timeline because I believe that the Orci interviews are the basis for the fans belief that there will be parallel universes, but I don't think there will be any evidence of it actually in the film. And to me, all that counts is what will be on the screen.
