When you have to say “It’s done”, it’s not done.
Well, that was easy. Good programing by those Kelvins.
I’m still worried… Nadi claimed it was near impossible to make large lasting changes to the timeline… That history had a way of restoring itself…
Maybe this -is- history restoring itself to what it should be.
That’s a good time travel point Varcel.
That might require the supposedly pointless murder of the American politician, who would have died anyway, somehow resulting in the bad future, which then self corrected through Jin. It’s cool, but it seems far more epic than mere self correction, and far more like a conscious hand than what we get in Oedipus Rex. Besides, we also have hints the self correction of time may be an exaggeration. A change like the one Jin rendered may not be destiny, but instead too big for destiny to overcome.
I prefer to think the future we see is the one which would happen and Jin overcame what ever protections erected or counted on by the future folk. But, it comes down to the real goal of the story, whether a belief in destiny is the goal, or whether it is showing fighting destiny works.
Given the “Meh, f*** it, let’s bang” attitude of what we’ve seen of Future Federation, might “Eh, the timeline restores itself” be realistically translated as: “I don’t understand what we’ve gotten hold of, I never have and none of us do and … hey, party!” — the same mindset that leads, as another commenter observed a few comics back, to antique weapons on display behind minimal security in a ready-to-use state?
