So, i know the kelvin timeline is supposed to have started when spock/nero went through the blackhole/wormhole, but something in Beyond has confused me for some time.
"This is the USS Franklin, sir, can you believe it? First Earth ship capable of warp 4."
The NX-01 Enterprise was a warp 5 capable ship. How then is the NX-326 the first one capable of warp 4? Memory alpha only has the info from beyond and speculation on it's creation date based on that comment.
Was it a refitted nx test craft and rechristened afterwards?
Is this true in prime verse as well, or did was Kelvin an alternate reality already that was close enough until the major split.
Anyone have ideas?
