The new movie DOES have an effect on the game

2389 Romulus destroyed and alternate time line created

2399 Peace Treaty between Klingons and Federation dissolves

2409 STO begins

There's a nice graph in the link.

"Star Trek (the new movie) takes place in this alternate reality. This is explained in the film in a conversation between Uhura and Spock on the bridge of the Enterprise.

Star Trek Online is set in the "prime" Star Trek reality. This is the timeline of the five television series and the first 10 movies. It is the world in which the Gorn attacked Cestus III, Kirk fought Khan in the Mutara Nebula, Picard explored the galaxy, the Federation fought the Dominion War, Voyager was stranded in the Delta Quadrant and Captain Archer and the crew of the NX-01 showed us how it all began.

Events in the movie that happened in the prime timeline (the destruction of Romulus, and the disappearance of Spock and Nero) have affected STO. "

    I think they pulled little movie stunt so that they could do whatever they wanted with future movies. Basically it's like starting the 3rd season of a show with "the entire second season was a dream" garbage.

    You are playing a video game. By definition that means you are not hardcore.

    Pretty much. As a sci-fi flick, it's okay. As a Star Trek "prologue" film, it sucks.

    for me as a Star Trek film it just sucked period. It had no reason to even be considered in the ST universe, alternate reality or not. and NO it does not affect STO really.

    To OP in general

    Ok I know I am going to get flamed for this so I will try to be careful as I can.

    Although the Star Trek movie had good characterization (and I agree that it did) as well as good wholesome action fun and as far as Star Trek movies go is was one of the best,



    The actual plot and dialogue could have been covered in about 15 minutes.

    I think the conversation you are speaking of is about the only conversation that actually happened in that movie.



     

    Please do not respond to me, even if I ask you a question, its rhetorical.

    As someone who was not a true trekkie, I can say that I loved the movie and it definitely got me more interesed in STO.  I can't wait for the next movie and to see what happens with STO.

     Well the movie was better than any of the next generation movies but that isn't saying much.

    Perhaps I read this part too literally..
