If Data is B-4, then is B-4 in this comic, or is he only referenced? – AT2Howell 05:25, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I would say he's referenced only. --TimPendragon 05:29, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Page 12. "Romulas" is evidently an important planet. – AT2Howell 05:30, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

This issue is so full of typos and grammatical errors, I just cringe. --TimPendragon 05:32, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

What year is this? – AT2Howell 19:59, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

That question seems to be the Pandora's Box of the moment. According to the stardate, it's 2387; according to Spock's reference to living on Romulus for forty years -- which, given the context of the story and many of the visuals, seems to be more likely -- it's 2408. The debate has been raging at TrekBBS since issue one hit the stands. The simplest explanation is that Kurtzman and Orci intended the former date, while the writers of the comic got flummoxed with Star Trek Online data and thought the story took twenty years later. But in universe, there is no easy answer. --TimPendragon 20:22, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
If the destruction of Romulus is touched on in the film (and I believe it will be) they'll probably specify some sort of general date then... -- Captain MKB 20:44, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

It's not that big a mystery, the writers have already confirmed the stardate derived date is the intended one ([1]) "Around eight years after Nemesis." they say, explaining that the time Spock has been on Romulus assumes he'd been going back and forth (which I think the novels confirm?) for years before Unification. --8of5 15:05, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

That's what we'll have to accept. It's still a backpedaling retcon, since what Spock said was that Romulus had been his "home for forty years," meaning since "Unification." --TimPendragon 21:45, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, then there's the nebulous concept of "home"... Ben Sisko considered Bajor home without even spending hardly any nights there. -- Captain MKB 21:58, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Hardly the same situation. Spock wouldn't really have considered Romulus his "home" at any point before setting up shop there in 2368. Hell, until four years prior, the Romulans had been in total isolation for decades. Yes, Spock was in contact with them during that time, but Romulus was hardly his "home." Anyhow, it's a moot point now that a retcon has been decreed. --TimPendragon 22:02, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
I actually think he would consider it home well before moving there permanently. After all, he'd have to have taken a considerable amount of time to make that decision and I doubt that was his first visit. -- Captain MKB 22:18, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Of course it wasn't his first visit. But he did not make his home there before 2368. Sheesh. --TimPendragon 22:26, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
