When you presume that the legacy Star Trek time-line applies to this series:
The insignia on the uniforms in this series are known as the "delta" emblems classic to the USS Enterprise crew in the Prime time-line. In canon, that insignia was devoted ONLY to those serving on the Enterprise until it became the fleet wide insignia after Kirk's historic five year mission. The Original Series Court Martial shows non-Enterprise crew wearing the Delta emblem. It was not until The Motion Picture, a decade later, that the emblem was 'retconned' into represented all of Starfleet - but it is false to say that it was canonical to only the USS Enterprise, when that was never a formal decision.
However, This time-line was reset at the day of Kirks Birth due to Director and Writer J.J. Abrams addition to the Romulan Mining Vessel. This new time-line exists within the 10 years prior to Kirk's command of the NCC-1701 U.S.S. Enterprise. While this new time-line seems to be irrelevant to the Insignia, it cannot be discounted that this new Timeline Change may have affected the back story this Insignia. Especially when you consider the new time-line, Kirk was also most Court Martial and kicked out of StarFleet for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru test. In the legacy time-line, Kirk was award and recognized for his original thinking. The new Timeline was not as kind to Kirk for this cheat. See more »
No continuity with the previous star trek series, if they insist on using loads of cgi and changing the look of the Klingon's etc they should have set it in the future after TNG then it would have worked better, some people who haven't seen the previous series may like it but for me it just doesn't work, reminds me of lord of the rings which is great but isn't star trek! Its just like every modern sci-fi series
