I read the comic.
* Phaedus was surveyed five years ago by a Starfleet vessel, approximately 2253 or 2254
* The Phaedans are using older model Starfleet tricorders with universal translators and are wielding phaser rifles
* Captain Robert April commanded what he described as "...a ship called Enterprise
* Captain Robert April is wearing a variant of the Starfleet uniform
I don't have an interpretation of these facts, but they lead somewhere.
