So I just finished Star Trek Enterprise on Netflix. I personally don稚 think it was terrible. Not great, but enjoyable.
After watching though, a theory has been floating around in my head: You池e all familiar with the Kelvin timeline that JJ Abrams created inthe recent movies. I would propose that there is another timeline subtly placed in Enterprise, that would change future events, possibly leading to the timeline that Discovery is currently flopping about in.
I知 talking about the episode Regeneration, where the Borg sphere from the movie First Contact is discovered in the Arctic. Early mankind came into contact with a hostile alien race 200 years or so before the battle of Wolf 359. Yes, it was a small case that, for the most part, was well contained. But reports had to be filed, and evidence had to be removed. This isn稚 counting the fact that two people from pre-warp mankind was exposed to people from the future, and the Enterprise-E before even getting off the ground. Even if it was minimal exposure, the fact that they had knowledge of what would come about in the future would be enough exposure to jumpstart their research and development processes, since they now know what to look for.
I tried finding this theory online, but came up with nothing. Maybe I知 late to the party on this, but I doubt I知 the only one who came to this conclusion. Do you think Enterprise is a sequel-prequel similar to the JJ Abrams universe? Do you think Discovery ( though I知 loathed to say it) is canon to the Star Trek universe based on this divergent timeline?
