I wouldn't think so since the head belonged to the Data created in the 'real' timeline and it was placed in San Francisco centuries before the divergence. It'd continue to exist just as easily as the 'real' Spock would continue to exist.

If old Spock kills Quinto Spock, does that mean Old Spock will vanish? If Data is never created, does that mean his head will vanish in San Francisco. "I left my head, in San Francisco..." Sorry couldn't resist. Lame I know.
Spock is an interesting part of it too, since Spock is born prior to the divergence, he is technically the same person in both the real and the new timelines...but I'm reasonably sure if young Spock were to die in the Abramsverse, it should not affect Spock in the "real" timeline...

True. But will he be good or bad?

Thing is, the shared history of both timelines should by rights be the exact same, since the new timeline splits off from the "real" one we already know. "New" history begins in the new timeline at the moment of divergence, and becomes "now." There's really no way they'd know anything changed...unless someone from another timeline (like Old Spock) makes it known.

I don't think there's any reason to think he'd be anything but Data--the Data we know and love. There's no evidence (yet) that Nero's incursion into the TOS timeline changes this event and we don't know what timeline changes are reversed (if any).

I don't think there would any reason to think he is 100% like the Data from the real timeline. He could be pure evil if the writers want him to be and one of Picard's most formidable adversaries in this timeline.

I guess it all depends on if Pike dies or not will dictate how different the future of the new timeline is right out of the box...

Yes, and that means now Data has a younger head as B4's head is much newer than Data's head that was sitting in that cave for centuries, which was my whole point the whole time.

I didn't get you meant B4's head...when you were saying "Data's head" I thought you meant the one I've been talking about in the thread...
