That completely defeats the purpose of setting aside the four novels. When people buy tie-ins, they do expect that they will be derived from the parent material.
Well, these 2013 novels are no more tie-ins to the movie than what I suggested.

IMO a lot of the appeal of the new movie series is that anything can happen. Of course, that can't happen even in TOS or STXI tie-ins (not without a reset button finale, at least), but I think having another TOS spin-off timeline could capture some of that same spirit of uncertianty and fun. If we can't have "safe" JJTrek tie-ins, why not have an "unsafe" TOS-alternate along similar lines?
