"Whatever Gene Roddenberry's original intent might have been, it looks like that by 1979, he intended the top-of-the-line starships to be Constitution-class."
The quote is correct but I seriously doubt that it had actually been Gene Roddenberry who wrote the TMP novelization (possibly Alan Dean Foster acting as the ghost writer just like he did for the novelization of Star Wars).
Doubt all you want, but it's been pretty much positively established that GR actually WAS the author of the TMP novelization.
Having read several teleplays and a feature film draft by Roddenberry, I can say the novel reeks of his writing style.
