The less Nero interferes, the more like the original timeline it will be. If he just went and sat on the beach it would be almost exactly like the original. So if he wants change, the ball is in his court.

But where would the Narada be all the time Nero's in prison? Doesn't make sense.

If the Narada can destroy 40 24th century Birds of Prey, I don't see how the Kelvin can even make a dent.

One could also say that his manipulations could just as easily adversely affect his future by setting up a chain of events to make the Klingons the dominant power.

Absolutely, but isn't the fact that our choices could have adverse effects on the future a reality for everyone? I mean, that's true in everyday life. Doesn't stop people from trying to advance their agendas.

I think the movie will shed a lot of light into the end of the countdown comics. After all, the film needs to be a self contained story, so some of what happens in the countdown comics will be revisited in the film. Actually, the film was written first I believe.

Which brings up another question.

How does Nero manage to fail to eradicate the Kirks, assuming baby Kirk is aboard and escapes?
