I fear you are right though...hence the concern I expressed earlier over the Khitomer Massacre. The Klingons have been totally re-imagined, and without seeing the cut scenes, it's hard to say what JJ Abrams has in mind. I hope Josh's opinion that JJ Abrams viewpoint on time is that it all somehow goes in the 'correct' path regardless what happens leaves us with a Worf, because I like the dude, too.
What is it with you and the Khitomer Massacre? It happens like 100 years from when the movie happened. Plenty of time for the Romulans to surprise attack the Klingons.
And they weren't even in this movie save a reference about losing a big ol' showdown with Nero's ship.
Again, all the characters we know and love are going to be in this timeline. They didn't make a new movie without Spock for a reason.
Hopefully in this timeline, Kirk gets a decent freaking death.
