More Trek Plot Rumors

Our friends over at ScreenRant, who have a good track record, have some more Star Trek rumors for you to enjoy. A snippet below and they do involve [SPOILERS]

Alternative Timelines…Oh My
According to ScreenRant the new Strar Trek involves not just the previously reported (and confirmed by time travel, but also alternative timelines. has previously noted that one of the influences for the new Star Trek is the classic TNG alternative timeline episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise.” But ScreenRant has a nice new spoilery tidbit:

…in an alternate timeline there will be a significantly different version of the NCC-1701. From what I’ve been told it will be a very kick-ass version – essentially an all-out warship.

Of course alternative timelines are nothing new to Star Trek. The above mentioned “Yesterday’s Enterprise” is only one of dozens of episodes that have some form of alternative timeline. They have also shown up in the films; Star Trek Generations and Star Trek First Contact (and arguably Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home) use alternative timelines.

ScreenRant also notes that part of the film takes place in the time of Star Trek The Next Generation. has reported that Nimoy’s Spock starts off in a post-TNG setting and it isn’t clear at this time if this is what they are referring to. In our October interview with Star trek co-writer Roberto Orci, he was clear that there there were references to TNG that were “pivotal to the story.”

Doesn’t sound very impressive to me.

I miss ST TNG

Wow, will I be the first on a post referring to my own site? :-)



Interesting, I suspected that Leonard’s Spock would be in TNG time.

This doesn’t seem to be a spoiler, as much as a confirmation of what people were thinking all along…

Can you verify this, Anthony?

Oh, and just so you guys know… I withheld a REALLY big spoiler (that I’m sure Anthony knows about as well) because I have no intention of ruining this movie for anyone.


Well, it would have to be in the TNG timeline at some point, no? How else to explain Nimoy’s age? That’s not too spoilery. Alternate universes? Cool. We get Spock with a goatee at some point in this movie and half the posters on this board will geek out and have coronaries in the theater!

That sounds crazy, but cool. I look forward to it!!

C’mon, Vic! What’s the deal?!!

i want a patrick stewart cameo.

Sorry, Crusty. If you want no holds barred spoilers big enough to ruin the movie experience you’ll have to head on over to I care too much about my readers to step too far over the line.



i come to this site to ruin the movie. to get spoiled!!! so u wont hurt my feelings.

Cool, this is what I sort of suspected all along, and if it does come to pass it sounds very cool. I just hope we don’t spend too much time in the 24th century unless it’s WAY past TNG’s time. Sorry, but that whole era hold no appeal to me at all.

And a BIG thank you to ScreenRant, and Anthony as well if you truly are holding back.

I have no need to know every little detail and I appreciate the efforts of those that willingly keep the lid on the pot.

Hmmm…sounds a bit overdone and annoying. I think I would have preferred a high quality story that doesn’t resort to the forced and artificial drama of alternative timelines to remain compelling. Alternative timelines have have been done so many times before. A story of the genesis of the original crew seems more than enough to keep me interested. But I will keep an open mind of course, and hope it’s good.


While I appreciate that, it’s going to drive me nuts.

It’s going to be a long wait for Christmas.

Bless you, Vic — you bastard!

This movie is going to rock my socks and shoes off.

I want Quark in this movie!

Alternate Timelines, tribbles, time travel…

I’m starting to have doubts. I know that this is going to be different, but why does it have to be impossible to follow?

Sounds like an episode of Lost, intriguing.

So we know Spock goes back in time wonder if he steals the Enterprise E to do it.

And is the beautiful new supergigantor E we have seen the superbattleship E??? Or reimaginined E ???

And who is in the coffin Jack visits on Lost, could it in fact be Spock ????

I like the idea of old Spock finding one day that everything he knew is gone, indicating that someone has messed with the timeline — like a massive multilevel simultaneous attack that he needs help to fight… He goes back and brings together the original crew of the enterprise, figuring that even young and inexperienced they will have the traits they need to get the job done. Knowing that he can never perfectly undo the damage that has been done, he simply does his best, and hopes it will be good enough for key future events to play out in a similar way. That’s the reason for the epic battle across timelines, and explains any changes to cannon.

Re spoilers:

“After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical. But it is often true.”

Peace. Live long and prosper.

Maybe that’s why Yelchin saw Klingons. Bet the Battle-E kicks their ridge-covered arses back across the neutral zone!

Greetings and felicitations, Vulcanista!

My above guess would also make sense in a symetrical sense, since JJ referenced ‘Yesterday’s Enterprise.’ They were fighting Klingons because of a missed opportunity involving a battle with the Romulans. So, this would go along with that timeline. (Kinda — this is where my head starts to hurt.)

I love Lamp…… and Spoilers


Yeah buddy! Patrick Stewart Cameo!

Well if no one else will say it then ScreenRant STFU.. if you need to promo your site go elsewhere… I for one don’t GAF if your right or wrong… just wrong to use this one as a springboard.

Sorry Tony couldn’t help meself.

Meh. It’ll probably still be good, but I agree that I would have been happy with a straightforward “genesis” of TOS story line.

After setting the timeline right Spock stops off in 1997 to Pon Far Carmen Electra

Greetings, CmdrR!

All I really want them to do is tell me a good story. That hasn’t changed since I was three, and it’s not going to change anytime soon.

PS: How’s that young’un of yours coming along? Is it done yet? :)

Peace. Live long and prosper.

Back to Mirror, Mirror.

I for one like time travel stories in Trek….

…and I wonder if the big giant spoiler that cannot be spoken involves…. the Shat?????? :D

He was due today, Vulcanista. Must be a fluxuation in the chronoton collated gestation field. I hope to have a bouncing baby geek soon. I’m so psyched about all the cool ST toys he’ll be getting that are just for him and not for his father to play with really no foolin.
Amen to good storytelling. I don’t know if 126 pages means a two hour movie, or if there’s a lot of time burned up in FX. (Wonder how many pages of screenplay it took to write the psychadelic tunnel at the end of 2001?) This movie certainly feels overstuffed, but if it keeps chuggin, then they can mess with the timelines a little, I suppose.

Oi. I’m with others in that, while I certainly don’t think all this time travel and alternate timelines stuff will make it a BAD movie, I would have preferred a more straightforward storyline. Time travel storylines have of course been done very well in Trek… but they have already been done many, many times.


Countdown begins…

Good luck!

Peace. Live long and prosper.

Ya think? ;-)

Would be cool, indeed.

I told you Closettrekker,
From TOS:
J.J.’s teaser trailer mirror Footage of Steelworkers building war-machines in WWII.

From what I’ve been told it will be a very kick-ass version – essentially an all-out warship.
Ps Thank God, it maybe an alternative timeline and does not have to with the TOS Timeline. But, why did J.J. not make his own crew??????

If you are dealing with alternate timelines, do we see a old James T. Kirk in there somewhere?

There is your way out, timeline is altered and Kirk survives…

Alternate timeline… Ehh… I mean, yeah, it’s a way to preserve canon so the original storyline is not tampered with, but… I dunno.

I guess I’m just skeptical because I still hate seeing all that history go to waste.

It’s still 11 months from release, I could be worrying about nothing.

Um, if you notice, Anthony mentioned my site in the post, dude.

Thanks for your polite words.

Best regards,


Wow, this just keeps sounding more interesting. How, tell me HOW I’m supposed to wait until December >>>>>>> :(

Yes, Mike T. In an alternate time line Kirk could still be aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!

So there it is, a reboot using an alternate timeline as the explanation. So no worries about canon violation.

Unless the alt. timeline seen is the changed one, and the real one is reestablished by the end.

So many questions!

I prefer to stay open minded and use wait and see attitude about the rumors surrounding the story.

I’m not seeing a coherent story here, just a lot of canon erasing.

Just bring back The Shat & revive the authentic James T. Kirk.

This is the cherry on top! I’m am now fully revved up! Didn’t Orci or someone say we’d hear the name “Picard”? Alternate Enterprises? Hell yeah!

It is possible that the Shat will be in the movie thanks to the spoilers.
