I'm a huge Star Trek fan. It's been a huge part of my life and I've always tried to learn as much about the things that happened off-screen as well as on. I'm also usually put off by click-bait headlines such as "27 geeky things about...", especially when it comes to either Star Trek or Back to the Future, both of which are franchises I consider myself well-versed about.
But this one is from Den of Geek, which isn't a click-bait site. And their article about the new Star Trek movies threw up a load of facts about the JJ universe which I was surprised to discover I didn't even know about, especially with regards to deleted scenes which I have not yet seen. One of my favourite points in particular is surrounding the fact that the original Enterprise that we grew up watching did exist in JJ's timeline. The Enterprise we see in his film isn't just a different design from the original we knew and loved, but is a second Constitution Class Enterprise following on from the one depicted in The Original Series.
