Which we’ve had in both Star Trek Online and the Kelvin comics but I’m sure he’ll just dismiss those out of hand.

The established canon for the Kelvin “timeline” is that it is in fact actually an entirely different alternate reality:

Star Trek Online said:
The sheer destruction from the Hobus supernova has weakened the barrier between our reality and one strangely similar to our own, leaving a strange temporal anomaly in its wake. This anomaly serves as a gateway between our universe… and a quantum universe both similar and different to our own.

Simon Pegg said:
Canon tells us, Hikaru Sulu was born before the Kelvin incident, so how could his fundamental humanity be altered? Well, the explanation comes down to something very Star Treky; theoretical, quantum physics and the less than simple fact that time is not linear. Sure, we experience time as a contiguous series of cascading events but perception and reality aren’t always the same thing. Spock’s incursion from the Prime Universe created a multidimensional reality shift. The rift in space/time created an entirely new reality in all directions, top to bottom, from the Big Bang to the end of everything. As such this reality was, is and always will be subtly different from the Prime Universe. I don’t believe for one second that Gene Roddenberry wouldn’t have loved the idea of an alternate reality (Mirror, Mirror anyone?). This means, and this is absolutely key, the Kelvin universe can evolve and change in ways that don’t necessarily have to follow the Prime Universe at any point in history, before or after the events of Star Trek ‘09, it can mutate and subvert

So it’s actually the Kelvin Universe.

You guys are starting to sound like the prequel apologist crowd coming up with your own head canon (ring theory) justifications for awful decisions.

Why on earth does captain Lorca have a Tribble on his desk?

Yeah, that almost bugged me as much as Scotty already having one in his ice base in the Kelvin timeline.

I think having more troopers tones down the absurdity in a way. The humor in the original version is “Wait a minute. You’re not the one who chases us. We’re supposed to be chasing you. That’s ridiculous”. In the SE, it’s now just, “Aha, reinforcements! The tables have turned!”.

Exactly, it kills the gag and that’s no bueno.

Felt a bit bizarre today when I realized Age of Ultron was only released two years ago. Feels like that came out AGES ago!
