Two options: 1) The Franklin (heh, USS Frank Lin) is the first warp 4 ship. Essentially a precursor to the NX-class. Aesthetics aside, it does at least share the same general design and looks purposefully retro. It makes sense that during the war, it was refitted with at least newer weapons (still only spatial torpedoes, but does have the newer pulsed phase ...

The official answer is, there is no official answer. The biological relationship between Sulu and his daughter Demora is not specifically mentioned in either old or new timeline (although it is addressed in the non-canon old-timeline novel The Captain's Daughter as the result of a one-night-stand)

The design of the Franklin fits with the original Enterprise timeline, the only issue I noticed was they stated it was a warp 4 class ship, but it should have been a warp 5 class vessel based on Enterprise. In Enterprise the NX class was warp 5 capable vessels, the Franklin in Beyond is an NX class vessel FROM 5–10 years AFTER Enterprise. Over the next ...

Just watch Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek into Darkness. Star Trek (2009) is kind of a reboot. It takes place in an alternate reality to the previous films and TV series. There are nods to previous films; like old Spock etc. but they are self explained in the film. You can still watch the old stuff but they are not compulsory to watch for understanding ...

In the end it is really up to you. To understand and enjoy the story, all you need are the recent two movies (I'd say). If you want to understand and notice parallels, nods to the original series, etc. you'd have to watch that as well (including the movies). But besides that, they did a pretty good job to establish characters, setting etc. without forcing ...

It was a mistake. Out of universe, just a production goof. In universe, Gary Mitchell made a human error. From Memory Alpha: The gravestone Mitchell creates for Kirk says "James R. Kirk". According to D.C. Fontana in the introduction for Star Trek: The Classic Episodes 1, when the mistake was discovered, Gene Roddenberry decided that if pressed for an ...
