I dont like the idea of there having to be two ST on different paths, why not just the one ST who's journey may change routes depending on events on the way there?
I hope you can grasp what im trying to point at :-)

There's nothing to actually to go back too.

This. Although I think it's just more th in-vogue one just now. But it's the basis of the story.

We refer to it as a time line but time (like Scotty said in this movie) is in direction motion and relation with the speed of the expansion of the universe.

If there were something to go back to it would imply an almost infinite amount of mass we ahaven't discovered, more than theorized by Dark Matter. That matter would continue to grow more abundant as time grows more abundant. That would be an endless amount Time, and endless amount of Matter and an endless amount of energy.

We haven't found that to be true.
If there were a disproportionate amount energy verses matter the universe wouldn't expand and create time/gravity in the first place.

I've not seen the Langoliers - not a huge King fan (more a handful of his movie adpations only).

Then all Star Trek time-travel stories are nonsense?
