    True, from a certain point of view.
    I just got a Obi-Wan Kenobi flashback that put a huge smile on my face. Thanks Scarlett!

    If memory serves me, it's 2256 during the first season of Discovery, though with the 9 month gap, it's 2257 by the time of the events taking place in the last episode. Given that the USS Enterprise is mentioned by Burnham, implying that it and the other Constitution class vessels have already been in service for a time and then it subsequently appears in the flesh so to speak, that by itself (to me anyway) put the whole Prime/Kelvin query to bed, as in the Kelvin Timeline, the class appeared about a decade behind the prime version and Enterprise wasn't commissioned and launched until 2258.

    I think so, but I am not 100% sure what the Prime Timeline of Star Trek: Discovery is.
    The 'Prime Timeline' is the timeline where shows Enterprise, Discovery, The Original Series, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager, as well as all Original Series Movies, and all TNG Movies take place.

    The Kelvin Timeline that was created with the 2009 Reboot movie includes Enterprise and the 3 Kelvin Timeline movies (Star Trek 2009, Into Darkness and Beyond). This timeline was created when the USS Kelvin was destroyed by the romulan mining ship Narada that traveled back in time from the 24th century, killing George Kirk, James Kirk's father, and spawning a new timeline.

    Technology level in discovery is crazy advance vs original series. Even in the first episode using those hologram communications didnt happen till like season 5 or 6 of ds9, which was still stationary no moving around or interacting with environment. Then the view screen good grief that thing was crazy. Teleporter looked more advance but probably just a visual thing going on there. Hard for me to see this as prime with such advance technology.
