Quote from: Rico on December 15, 2009, 06:18:21 AMI really don't see what happened in "First Contact" as altering the timeline in any way. Most of the time in Trek when things like this happened, they would cleverly say, "it was always meant to happen this way." The TNG crew was meant to help Cochrane discover Warp Drive. A good example of this is the time travel episode from TOS, "Assignment: Earth." In my view, every time time travel happened it didn't mean it started a new branch or parallel universe. I really don't think you can pull that trick all the time. They absolutely did it for the recent movie, but that's the exception rather than the rule - at least in my view from what has been shown.

And the trade off to getting new Treks is that they make continuity mistakes.
