ST11 Timeline

On Stardate 2233.04, the Kelvin detected an anomaly near the Klingon border that resembled a “lightning storm in space.” Upon investigation, an enormous Romulan ship, the Narada, emerged, having traveled back in time from the year 2384. The Narada immediately attacked, crippling the Kelvin. Captain Robau boarded the Narada, but was killed when the Romulans realized what had happened to them. Commander Kirk, now in command, followed Captain Robau’s final instructionsto him, ordering an evacuation of the ship in order to implement General Order 13 — attempting a last-ditch effort to destroy the Narada by ramming it with the Kelvin. Kirk was forced to sacrifice himself in order to pilot the ship, but he saved more than 800 lives in the process.[1]
