I thought it was Vulcan that was destroyed in the J J Abrams reboot. I remember it as Vulcan, because that's when Spock's parents die.You're right - Nemesis was 2002 - but its storyplot was about the Romulans.
I would have thought an Android like Data would know she was an android. How was she at school sports? (or explained away by "not yet activated")
The older Spock recounts to the younger Kirk how he was travelling with "red matter" (yeah right) to the Romulan system to prevent the super nova, but he arrived too late. Spock and the evil Romulan ended up going back in time to "reboot" the series, and give a parallel time line. (And also destroy Vulcan, to explain why there are so few Vulcans in later time lines).I watched Picard last night and it seemed pretty good. Especially the contrast between an old French château and starfleet, which he pops off to visit for the afternoon (which makes sense, if you have beaming technology). I think part of the story is that Picard has wasted away in retirement (or retirement has made him older), and I suspect as the series progresses he will get faster and stronger - more like the old Picard. I would have thought an Android like Data would know she was an android. How was she at school sports? (or explained away by "not yet activated")I think the series will work out, assuming they don't get sucked into time travel which only ever leads to nonsense or comedy.
Why should we care about actor's opinion on anything, outside theater acting and drama? Maybe screenwriter's but not much more.
See, this is why I hate Time Travel stuff, even though it's well-established in the Star Trek universe, because it creates paradoxes.
If Romulus is destroyed in the JJ Abrams rebooted timeline, then that timeline cannot get to the events of Star Trek Nemesis, where the titular Nemesis is Romulan. And the events of Star Trek Nemesis are what give us the death of Data.
As regards episode 2 and I don’t know why but I am still shocked to hear swearing in anything Trek related.

I imagine if the Borg come back to life we could be in for some body horror if they feel less bound by censorship on their streaming service.

Reportedly, Paramount sternly told Roddenberry and Co. to never do anything like that again after they got a lot of complaints from affiliates and viewers.
