Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: That D7 class Klingon ship that showed up in Enterprise is actually a D6.]]
The writers admit that it was a stupid mistake to have a D7 show up almost a hundred years before they should be around. But the ''TabletopGame/StarFleetBattles'' gaming universe does establish the almost identical D6 as a predecessor. Also, the D5 class ship that does show up does not necessarily have to be the same D5 that Kor mentions in Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS07E07OnceMoreUntoTheBreach. The Star Fleet gaming universe establishes a D5 class as a variant "war cruiser" class using D6 or D7 hulls.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Kolos from ''Judgement'' is an ancestor of Martok.]]
He was played by J. G. Hertzler, after all, and it wouldn't be the first case of IdenticalGrandson in ''Star Trek''.


* This theory is {{jossed}} by ''Discovery'', where we find out that there's a major genetic difference between Mirror Universe and Prime Universe humans: [[spoiler:the eyes of the former are more sensitive to bright light than those of the latter.]] Such a difference would've taken thousands of years to evolve, so the two universes must have diverged a long time ago, way before Zefram Cochrane.
[[WMG: If the show hadn't been cancelled, the Xindi Avians would have eventually been revealed to be NotSoExtinct.]]
They were mentioned an awful lot for nothing more than a MythologyGag. Eventually, an episode would have centered around a [[LastOfHisKind lone survivor]], perhaps dealing with SurvivorGuilt, or reveal a larger group survived and deal with their reintegration into Xindi society. Also, the council meets in an Avian settlement, so it's definitely possible some survived their homeworld's destruction.

* Canonically, United Earth did not include ''all'' of Earth's nations until 2150. Just looking at real-life events (e.g. Brexit) many nations could have been refusing to surrender their sovereignty to a world government and this might have extended to threatening military action if United Earth tried to force them to join. Maybe this is why the British Royal Navy still existed? It is cited that the ''Mariposa'' was a ship of the European Hegemony, not United Earth. The Vulcans watching all of this would naturally have been very concerned that United Earth might fail and that the nations might revert to warfare. Vulcans live longer than humans, so a wait-and-see approach would have been logical.


[[WMG: Due to the Temporal Cold War, the altered historical events that are depicted in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' occur in the second timeline created as a result of First Contact... which leads into the events in the film ''Film/StarTrek'' (2009)]]

In the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'', Delta Vega is an arctic planet in the Vulcan System. It is understandable why a species like the Vulcans, who evolved on a hot, dry, planet, would not colonize such a world even though it was technically inhabitable. The environment was, however, absolutely ''perfect'' for Andorians. Since the Vulcans did not seem to be using the planet for anything, the Andorians may have wanted it for their own colony. Especially if they learned about it back when their ships were slower and could not travel as far as they could in later years. But since it was so close to Vulcan, and the Vulcans are not overly-sociable, they would not want another species colonizing within their star system. This escalated into a dispute between the Andorians, who felt that the Vulcans were wasting a perfectly good planet, and the Vulcans who did not want the Andorian "Empire" claiming territory near their homeworld. Eventually it progressed into full-blown hostility.

Some WMGs have suggested that the Mirror Universe is the timeline that would have happened if the ''Enterrpise''-E never came back with the Borg in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''. This '''appears''' to be {{Jossed}} by the assertion of Mirror!Phlox searching through the ''Defiant'''s databanks and finding significant differences in the culture of both universes all through history.

Or is it?

The fact that the Terran Empire is so tyrannical might well prompt a lot of InternalRetcon type interfereance in history, even up to the point of extending its history back "centuries" (unlikely given Cochrane seems to be living in the same post-WW3 world as the film) and [[OrwellianRetcon even rewriting classic literature to fit better with the values of the new society]]. Except, of course, for Creator/WilliamShakespeare.


Both the Sphere-Builders and the Prophets are aliens living in a trans-dimensional realm beyond normal space and time, a realm that's depicted onscreen with all-encompassing white colour. Since the Sphere-Builders appear to be humanoids and want to conquer the physical universe, it seems likely they originally lived this universe in the but were somehow trapped in the trans-dimensional realm ages ago, and wish to return to their original home (see the above [=WMG=] for one possible explanation of their origin). However, after their attempt to conquer the universe is thwarted and their connection to it cut, they decide to try and properly adapt to their new home. Eventually they will evolve to live fully beyond space and time, losing their physical bodies in the process, and becoming the beings Bajorans referred to as the Prophets. At some point a random wormhole opens up a new connection between the trans-dimensional realm and the physical universe, but at that point they have forgotten they'd ever existed outside their realm, and have no wish to leave it. The only exception to this is a subgroup among them called the Pah-Wraiths, who still hold on to some subconscious Sphere-Builder mentality, and who are therefore more interested in manipulating the physical universe and its inhabitants.

Having evolved on an ice planet, the ability to detect temperature would be a useful skill, and the Andorian eyesight could incorporate infrared as part of its visible spectrum. It's been canonically established that Vulcan blood is colder than human blood. Therefore, to the Andorians, it's possible that the Vulcans appear to be of a completely different color, whereas humans - regardless of ethnicity - always appear as the color they call "pink" (translation conventions may apply).
