timepiececlock: (Bite me. -Toph)
I've been reading reviews of the new Star Trek movie and from what I understand the film right off the bat establishes itself as an AU timeline from the original series. I don't know if I'd have gotten that from watching it, because I've only seen a few scattered episodes of the TOS, and have no idea how the crew met or what their various backstories are.

I'm amused a little at this, because it feels so... Gundam. In fact, it's rather like Gundam Wing, where you wanted to reboot the franchise by simply inventing an entire alternate universe storyline and going with it. Except the GW timeline never actually connected to the other Gundam timelines, just existed entirely separate yet part of the franchise. I think there's actually 3 or 4 Gundam continuities.

I don't know if I've ever said this, but people who read my LJ probably know it: I adore Alternate Universes, Alternate Dimensions, and Alternate Continuities in canon. Simply adore them. FMA? Loved it to pieces. Stargate: SG1? Always a good time. Farscape? OH YEAH. Whether it's repeating the same events ad nauseum until you get it right, or living the not-quite-a-trope-yet "lost year" (Voyager, Sailor Moon) that characters are only too happy to forget, I love them.
