Based on what we know, how does First Contact occur in the Star Trek 2009 timeline? And does First Contact mean the Enterprise-E crew is still somehow canon in this timeline?
Star Trek: Enterprise is still canon (Scotty mentions "Admiral Archer" and neither Spock nor Nero would have been able to interfere with that point in the timeline), and the Borg from First Contact were encountered in one episode. A model of the Phoenix is in Admiral Marcus' office, and Spock and Nero entered the black hole after the Next Generation films, and thus after the Enterprise-E altered and/or restored the timeline.
So did First Contact occur the same way in the reboot/JJverse? And if so, does that mean that the Enterprise-E crew are still canon in this timeline, but only for the duration of the events of First Contact? I can't wrap my head around any of this; can you?
