The comic book's a great idea, but I sincerely hope that it's possible to follow the movie completely without ever knowing that the comic even exists. The last thing the movie needs is the disclaimer that "you need to read four comic books, set a century further into the future, in order to understand just what the heck's going on..."
Since people have already seen the film, but none of them have read the comics, I think we'll be fine. It also rules out a pointless and (to new viewers) confusing cameo by Picard et al.

My take on it is that all the changes in continuity are a result of Nero going back in time and changing everything. The TOS era--specifically the timeframe of Kirk's 5-year mission--is the point in time that is the most changed, but if things work out well, the rest of the Trek timeline unfolds as it did originally.

Personally, I think the comic will show Spock's initial motivation for going after Nero myself and we'll see the 24th-Century as we remember it. IDW did prequel comics for the Transformers movie, and they did a pretty good job putting together events that lead up to the movie, IMO. I think they'll do the same thing with Star Trek XI...
Free your mind, and the rest will follow.

I'm not sure if this has been discussed, but how about this:
In TNG era the Enterprise-E is chasing down a younger Nero with Spock on board. Nero opens a time-conduit and travels back to before TOS and changes time. Which takes a while hence he's older in the film. The Enterprise-E is shielded from these changes for some <insert technobabble> reason and they somehow find a way to send old Spock back to before TOS in order to help get the time-line back on track.

Edit - Damn, I just saw commodores reply saying the same thing. Did you just go back in time to before I posted?! Or maybe I need to read posts before I post.

Matbe the Enterprsie could have been protected to changes in the timeline simply due to their proximity to whatever Nero was using to travel thru time? Kind of like the way they were caught in the wake of the Borg sphere.

This comic seems to show evidence that the Abrams Administration cares a little more about canon than people think.

They could be prison tatoos/markings if Nero was in that Klingon prison. As for the comic, I would assume if its part of Abrams trek and licensed by him, its cannon I guess.

Since they are advertising the comics as a tie-in to the movie, will they be considered as canon in the ST universe?
