It may have taken us seven long years, but the current incarnation of Star Trek outings finally have an umbrella title. Trekkie historians the world over rejoice!

Thanks yo CBS, we can now call this new universe – an alternative timeline to the original – the Kelvin Timeline.

The news was unveiled earlier this week in a Star Trek Online preview, ahead of the new crossover between Prime Reality and the Alternate Reality. It was noted that the official title was needed during the development of Mike and Denise Okuda’s upcoming Star Trek Encyclopaedia relaunch.

Here’s the news breaking on Twitter from the powers that be:

So you can stop calling it the Reboot Timeline, the Bad Robot Reality, NuTrek or whatever you had in mind, we’re officially in the age of the Kelvin Timeline.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
