Same characters, same ship, new look. And you know what... I'm fine with that. [/qb][/QUOTE]It has been unilaterally stated by the people making the movie that this is not their intention, though. [/qb][/QUOTE][URL=http://trekmovie.com/2008/12/11/bob-orci-explains-how-the-new-star-trek-movie-fits-with-trek-canon-and-real-science/]Bob Orci, one of the people making this movie, says it's a parallel universe with timeline changes introduced by Nero's trip back[/URL]: [QUOTE]Anthony: OK, now let’s get really into it. From the trailer, and certainly from the four scene preview, there is no doubt that things are different. Pike and Kirk are hanging out in a bar. The ship looks different. Kirk is on the Enterprise and not headed to the Farragut. People are seeing Romulans…things are different. Now it has been revealed in the Entertainment Weekly article that Nero goes back in time and attacks the Kelvin, and JJ also talked about this during his previews. So the big question is: Is the destruction of the Kelvin, the canon reason why everything is different? Bob: It is the reason why some things are different, but not everything is different. Not everything is inconsistent with what might have actually happened, in canon. Some of the things that seem that they are totally different, I will argue, once the film comes out, fall well within what could have been the non-time travel version of this move. Anthony: So, for example, Kirk is different, because his back story has totally changed, in that his parents…and all that. But you are saying that maybe Scotty or Spock’s back story would not be affected by that change? Bob: Right. Anthony: Does the time travel explain why the Enterprise looks different and why it is being built in Riverside Iowa? Bob: Yes, and yes. Anthony: OK, well then some fans will say ‘fair enough, alternate timeline, we are used to that, but that is not my Kirk, that is some other Kirk.’ So is this still our movie, or are we seeing some other version of Star Trek? Bob: Well that depends on whether or not you believe in nature or nurture and how much you believe in, for lack of a better word, their souls. I would argue that for the characters, their true nature does not change. Our motto for this movie was ’same ship, different day.’[/QUOTE]They're not going all willy-nilly changing stuff ((cough) *BSG* (cough)), but it is basically a reboot by setting most of the renewed franchise (we trust) in a universe not the same as the most well-trod.
