I was under the impression that it was in the same timeline as the recent movies (don't ask me why I thought that - I must have read it somewhere), but the last episode makes it impossible.
Also, did I miss something? Up until the 26/Nov episode ("Unification III"), the impression I had was that nobody had any clue about what could have caused the "burn" - and now suddenly it is a given that it happened as a result of an experiment to find an alternative to dilithium that went wrong?
The show is intended to take place in the original timeline, however you'll find it doesn't exactly match it leaving it up to you to decide if the differences are artistic license or if this is another timeline. As for The Burn, prior to Unification III Starfleet had different theories on what caused the burn but insufficient evidence to prove any, it wasn't made certain that it was an experiment to find an alternate to dilithium, that's just another theory - now because Burhman & the Disco crew are the main characters of the show they'll manage to solve the mystery, when Starfleet couldn't in over 100 years.
