It was a story of how all the TOS characters first met and what they done before the 5 year mission.

In an alternative universe. It doesn't tell how they met in the TOS timeline so it can't be a prequel, IMO

If it doesn't make it into the movie, it doesn't count

Why does it matter prime vs alternate like what's the big deal

True dat.

This thread needs to be rethunk...

To Strwarsrcks: The question was what prequel do you prefer. My point is that Enterprise and STXI are prequels to two entirely different entities so it is very difficult to compare them or choose which one is better.

I also liked the scene when Cochrane shot the Vulcans and the Terrans took all the Vulcan technology So what's the big deal?
