In a Alternate, yet Original timeline

Basically Kirk Prime arrives in the AOS in 'Into Darkness' with Khan. Instead of dying under the bridge. Okay, why not begin this story? Sometimes, the universe decides to fix its mistakes. Something has to be set right. Even if it was a terrible ending.

3. Not where he expects

Jim had closed his eyes expecting the inevitable. Only. . . He heard the sounds of silence. He felt . . . fine. . . Unharmed. At ease. Not metal crashing his body, crushing against his chest, piercing straight into his chest, legs being thrown out of commission, and perhaps his back being injured quite badly. All leading to his well deserved death of being the hero. He always thought he would die alone without his best friends around him.

Jim opened his eyes to see a man standing inches away from a blue force-field.

Something did not feel right.

The man had dark hair.

His posture was much like a man on a ticking time bomb standing there awfully still.

"Uh," Jim said. "Hello? Who are you?"

The dark haired man turned around, hands behind his back,and eyes that stared right through him.

"Khan."

Jim could feel his face go pale.

No.

Khan died a very long time ago in part of Spock's sacrifice and dying there fighting against the Enterprise!

"Khan Noonien Singh?"

"Yes."

"You don't look like Khan."

Khan frowned.

"I am Khan."

"No, you are not."

"I don't know who you are, but I am Khan."

Jim stood up, his fists clenched, anger coursing through.

"If you are who you say you are . . . ." Jim said. "How many are there of you?"

"Seventy-two." Khan said.

Jim stepped forward with a dark look about his face.

"There used to be ninety of you before," Jim said. "Most of whom deflected because of your ways. Which left you with seventy-two people. Isn't that true?" Khan stared at Jim. "You are the one of the people who has done crimes that left you exiled! EXILED from Earth!"

Khan was speechless.

"You . . . How do you know so much?" Khan asked.

"Let's say I met you before," Jim said. "A very, very long time ago."

Khan raised a eyebrow.

"And what is your name?" Khan asked.

Jim looked over to see a familiar figure along with another figure headed their way.

"I believe you know who I am," Jim said, turning his attention back to Khan. He was guessing, really, one of his strong suits. "It hasn't happened yet, hasn't it?"

"Khan, why is there a person in--" The young man stopped. "The. . . pod. . ."

"Captain?" Spock asked.

Khan turned toward the young man then back to Jim.

"You are . . No, no, no," Khan said. "That is impossible. You are his great grandfather!"

"Nice guess," Jim said. "But  I am not."

Khan's skin went cold and the blood circulating in his brain stopped for a moment there.  Khan fainted. Jim made the comment, "Why, that never happened the first time around." noting on the reaction. He didn't look quite as young but he still had the aged look of a captain. Captain Kirk had the older counterpart be taken out of the cell. Spock hadn't known or better yet understood who the man was. . . Yet. . . Kirk, however, knew. He just knew. Some of the mind meld Prime Spock had shown him displayed the much older counterpart version of himself.

And now here Jim is in the medical bay.

It was strange.

"Hello, I am your Doctor for the day," McCoy said.  "What is your name?"

Jim had wide eyes. 

This version of McCoy was far younger than the one he had known on his Enterprise.

"He hasn't told you?" Jim asked.

"Told me what?" McCoy said, raising a brow.

"Who I am." Jim said.

"No, he hasn't." McCoy said.

"I should be dead right now." Jim said.

"Just tell me your name." McCoy said.

"Bones," Came Kirk. "This is my long lost grandfather who I am named after."

McCoy turned toward Kirk.

"Jim, I find it hard to believe that you have a long lost grandfather," McCoy said. "Tell  me, who is he?"

"You asked," Kirk said. "This is . . . my other self."

McCoy raised a eyebrow.

"Jim, other self, really?" McCoy said. "Just tell me."

"It is true," Jim said. "I am a much older version of your captain. . . And  I don't remember having bright blue eyes. I am one hundred forty-eight years old."

McCoy looked back and forth.

"I see the resemblance now," McCoy said. ". . . But you look like you are sixty not a hundred forty-eight years old."

"What can I say?" Jim said. "Been inside the nexus."

"What is the nexus?" Kirk asked.

"Somewhere you do not want to be," Jim said. "Even as pleasurable as it is. . . Say, you act like you've seen me before, mind telling me what is going on?"
