I hope this is not what is happening here...that particular story note feels too soon for this alt. reality crew of the Enterprise. I don't think the audience is emotionally invested enough yet with these players for it to be as effective killing Spock now as it was in Khan.

I think people take for granted the fact that the original crew already had a legacy of nearly 20yrs by the time Wrath of Khan came around and killed Spock
