The movie, wasn't it?

Somehow, screwing with Kirk's timeline results in Enterprise design changes and greatly reducing the age gap between Kirk and Chekov.

Who knew Kirk's life was THAT influential?

The age gap is one thing that can actually be explained by the attack on the Kelvin, though. If George Kirk was aboard, perhaps the experience of the attack made him have kids slightly later? That would account for the seemingly smaller Kirk/McCoy age gap too.

Isn't George Kirk killed on the Kelvin?

Is he? I haven't been reading spoilers, all I could tell from the trailer was that at least some of the crew escaped the ship. In that case, my theory goes out the window. Shame. It actually made some sense.

Not sure if he dies on the Kelvin, but we do know that Jim is raised by a drunken abusive uncle rather than his father - for the ANGST!

God, this film makes me ill.

The stardate of the prequel comic is 64333.4, which is the calendar year 2387, eight years after Star Trek: Nemesis. We see Nero's Romulan (pirate?) crew, and their ship with that funky grappling hook we saw in the trailer. Now I'm confused: I thought the "surreal" inside of the ship was actually the "Narada's" interior, but it's the pirate ship. Huh. The pirate ship doesn't look like a Romulan vessel at all, but who knows what's been happening in the last eight years?

We also see an evac shuttle, and Romulan EVA suits. Doesn't the guy in the bottom right corner of the frame look like Picard?

This comic comes out in four days. I am so buying it.

Looks like mini-Scimitars to me. I guess the Remans have been makin' good over the past eight years.

That, or all Reman warships share a similar aesthetic, just like the Romulans.

I was under the impression that the Remans didn't have any ships, just the Scimitar and its fighters.

It's been a while since I've seen 'Nemisis' so I honestly don't recall. From a purely logical point of view though, since the Scimitar was so aesthetically distinct, both externally and internally from what we know of Romulan ships that it stands to reason that there would have been some earlier basis for the design. Otherwise it would surely have essentially been Romulan technology with a dimmer switch.

Considering Picard's reaction when the Scimitar first decloaks, you're probably right. Saying, "She's a predator" is a far cry from "What the hell? That's not a Romulan ship. Romulan ships don't look anything like that. They're green, for God's sake!"

I personally like to think that the Scimitar was a new class of Romulan ship, which was modified for use by the Remans. I just can't see a subjugated slave race possessing any kind of fleet whatsoever. Since the film was vague on so many issues, I suppose that's as good a guess as any. And if these mini-Scimitars actually show up in the film (they probably won't), and they are unequivocally Romulan ships, I'll be happy that my hypothesis was borne out.
