1. It can be Labled anything , in the end a true REBOOT would not be a TIME TRAVEL Story .
You do know JJ-Trek was labeled as a reboot right?
And the Narada was a mining ship originally as stated in that lens flare flick but the backstory was that it was outfitted with Romulan-Borg technology.
2. It can seem as a Soft Reboot if you look at the Definition of Soft Reboot .
If the the Original Universe is still living through Spock , its is not a TOTAL REBOOT !
