Well, hehehe you know the Enterprise is always there everywhere

STO can be considered the continuation for the Prime universe, since i do not see anything coming up in the future.

I like Countdown for what it was, I don't mean to bash it. But that ascpect of it did rub me the wrong way a bit.
But even at the end of Nemesis it was clear Data was in fact, not dead, but was within the B-4 unit.

The comic writers are only picking up a valid thread the last film started.

True, they left the door open to the possibility, I don't really dispute that. But, it was only a possibility. B-4 was still very limited, that scene implies that at least some of what was Data would live on in B-4.

But I just never could shake that feeling about the countdown comics that it was forced in the way so many of the familiar faces show up.

A lot of them were indeed, for me, throwing Worf and Geordi in was a step too far, Data and Picard were believably included given past stories I thought.

And remember, 8 years have passed between Nemesis and Countdown - which is plenty of time for the Data download to sort itself out.

Yeah, I could have bought one or two familiar faces, it was the overkill that seemed to stretch it for me.
