DAMN YOU CHATOR!!!! I'm 3 episodes behind in Fringe!!LOL! Oh well..I'll pretend I didn't hear/see that!!!

And I don't think it falls into a Prime Directive type-thingy. We know that the prime timeline continues...therefore, it is not a temporal incursion.

However, it is a temporal incursion in another universe. Then again, it could just be a branch of the prime timeline that didn't exist until the Narada & Spock made the jump....

We might see how it all pans out over the next few films - but if I was Spock, I would be wary of giving humans toys and details of the future they may not be ready for.

But it is going to be a different future...whatever he tells them doesn't mean anything!

Kind of like future Janeway in "Endgame", and Picard with his time jumping in "All Good Things".

But he still has immense power within that knowledge. Depending on how events in this universe goes - it might mean nothing, or everything.

If even political situations differ, he could give them more advanced weaponry, sensor systems, all kinds of little Pandora's Box stuff.

Somehow, I suspect sharing his knowledge of what will happen in the future seems more likely to consist of things like letting them know about Romulus' fate, for instance, and maybe the fact that the Borg exist (they may be able to save Soren & Guinan's planet, thereby negating the events of Generations AND Kirk's extended death; I've forgotten when exactly it was assimilated by the Borg). Advanced weapons, possibly, but I only see him giving that info out to someone he trusts implicitly so it can be used in case of emergency only. He can't simply wait forever on his own; he's an old man now (his human blood preventing him from having quite as long a life as a full-blooded Vulcan). And I think he would feel he MUST do it since he obviously felt so guilty about being too late to save Romulus the first time.

Perhaps.

At this point, I'm not entirely sure we may be done with Spock Prime. The Vulcan story is far from over (since they started it, it would be very bad to ignore it from now on) so I'm not fully convinced we may never see him again.
