: I don't think so. At the end of Things What Kick we get a jump: Durandal is
Thing What Kicks, terminal 0, Durandal says "My teams have activated the AI, and I am learning much about the final days of the S'pht, but the intelligence is reticent and inscrutable. It expects something, that is clear enough, but what is a mystery. Once you are finished here, I will transport you to an ancient S'pht citadel where my humans are searching for clues."
: My interpretation is that the player and the Security officer do not get sent
I also think that the timeline continues with the Security Officer in it. His body with a version of his consciousness continues on, but another version of his consciousness travels back and across timelines to try something different.
: The only other interpretation I can think of that would explain it is that
I also interpret this as the way that the Security Officer makes sense of his timeline-jumping. Even back in the M1 prologue, we see signs of his strange feelings of deja vu. I think that that is his perception of his timeline-jumping: a version of him in the past suddenly has memories of an alternate future and because of those memories acts differently, but the normal human mind doesn't know how to easily integrate the sudden acquisition of memories from a future that won't happen now, so they seem like deja vu, visions, or half-remembered dreams.
