An Explanation of Star Trek by KenRedtail An Explanation of Star Trek by KenRedtail
The Doctor would like to have a few words with those of you confused as to how the recent Star Trek movie affects the existing canon.

Yes, but the problem is that in the world of Star Trek, changing the past doesn't lead to an alternate reality. Every change in the past, changes the future of the same reality (see: The city on the edge of forever (TOS), First contact (TNG), Year of Hell (VOY) and many others....)

You forget an episode of The Next Generation.
In this episode, Worf travels through parallel reality after Parallel Reality.
None are erased at the end.
The episode is called Parallels.

Also, it was confirmed that Reboot!Trek's time travel created a separate reality, like he ones in the episode Parallels.

To be fair, 99% of Star Trek's nefarious time travel episodes always end up "closing" the loop by convenient solutions at the end of the story arc. This case is different because the only way they could close this particular loop is prevent the black hole from ever opening in the first place.
