Default Theory about the prevalence of the delta insignia-Possible spoilers!!!

In the normal timeline we see the delta shield immortalized in starfleet history becuase of the Enterprise. But maybe in that timeline, the Enterprise was simply re-using it, since we know the kelvin used the insignia on their uniforms, maybe it was their mission patch. In the new timeline, however, the Kelvin sacrificed itself against a majorly more powerful enemy. Maybe in this timeline the whole fleet adopted the mission patch to honor the Kelvin, much as they did with the Enterprise in the original timeline.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't mind it at all. I thought it was kinda neat they did it that way

Try as one might... the idea of the Enterprise unit patch and the Starfleet insignia suffered critical damage since the first motion picture.

It would have been cool (for this film) if a new Enterprise unit patch was made (displayed ona shoulder or something) to display on top of the Delta Vega insignia (now widely recognized by the masses as the starfleet symbol).
