Re: TOS set during the 22nd Century!?

But the lines in the episode gave the impression that the E crew considered themselves the first to make it that far. Remember Kirk's first line in the log entry: "The impossible has happened." They didn't think any ship had ever been there before them. If they'd known about two centuries' worth of ships that had probed the barrier and been lost, they wouldn't have thought it "impossible" to encounter a ship's disaster beacon there.
