Background informationEdit

Though first published more than three years after the release of Star Trek, the book does not acknowledge any events or use any photos from the Kelvin timeline, though a few facts presumed to be true in both universes are included. (i.e. The Vulcan and Romulan languages being nearly indistinguishable, and Romulan's three spoken dialects, pg. 61.)

A photo of Lansor and P'Chan from VOY: "Survival Instinct" on pg. 88 is mistakenly identified as drones being sent into Unimatrix Zero.
