Like I said, a stretch. But what about ENT wasn't?

Could Ent be the alternate timeline/universe created in First Contact?

If so, did that alternate timeline continue till STXI?


can't be. First Contact didn't create an alternate timeline.

If it did, then all of trek has been set in that alternate timeline. In Year of Hell, Seven mentions that the Borg were involved with the events surrounding first contact. If the Borg being there created an alternate timeline, how could Seven possibly be aware of it?

The only explanation is that ent and Vgr are in the same timeline. By extension, all of Trek has been in that timeline.


True. Totally forgot that point. The FC temporal incident was nicely wrapped up at the end there...

While 7 did say they were involved, she didn't say how. Her statement does not preclude events occurring differently from FC originally if the time-travel thingy created the separate universe.

Good point - if she was referring to the Borg's initial arrival at Earth, and the point of divergence was after that, her statement can fit with the "ENT = alt timeline" hypothesis.

Indeed. ENT could easily have branched off at a later date.

Which, according to modern physics, it would, wouldn't it?
