I haven't seen this book yet. Is the Animated series considered canon in it, or is it still shut out as it was in the Okuda books?
I did not see any overt references to TAS in the book. But you have to understand that it's not like the Trek Chronology book. This offers the broad stroke of history from First Contact to the end of the TOS-era movies. Kirk and Co. get their dues, but the specifics are condensed.
In short: it doesn't neccessarily confirm or deny TAS. But I will give this another read, because some of the references are more subtle!
There are overt references to TAS - Robert April being the first Captain of the Enterprise was a fact established in TAS, as well as the fact that he married his chief medical officer. Also, I refer to the historian Aleek Om, a character from TAS. But keep taking apart the book, this is what I was looking forward to
