Star Trek Plot Spoiler

The title says "spoiler" so no complaints. According to Trekmovie.com, after JJ Abrams told Rolling Stone that Star Trek XI "looks at the formation of the core characters from Star Trek, so it serves as a prequel, but it's also more than that," it confirmed a key plot point.

"TrekMovie.com has confirmed that the film starts in the post Star Trek Nemesis timeframe. This is where we initially find the elder Spock (played by Leonard Nimoy). So in a sense the film takes us from the end of the TNG era and brings us back to before the TOS era, showing the origins of Kirk and Spock and the crew of the NCC-1701."

So far this fits with the various rumors that have come out so far about the movie so not far fetched (well, beyond the usual sci-fi norms anyway). The real key question is will a time disruption occur that "re-writes" Trek history to create a new starting point for the franchise in the Original Series era.
