Supposedly. The version in The Bloodwing Voyages
didn't get rid of all the TOS-isms, though (in MEMA or in Swordhunt
). It changed the ranks, but left in stuff like the TOS uniforms, Chekov being at navigation, and Enterprise
not yet having the TMP refit.
Post-TMP gives a more realistic timeline for The Romulan Way
, so that's probably the way to go (and The Empty Chair
is definitely post-TMP), but after so many years of considering them as being in the TOS era I find it hard to give that up!
