Re: TOS movie era Novels?

^As I recall, the New Earth books assume they're in TWOK-style uniforms. If we follow the Timeliners' precedent and put NE after the second 5YM, then there's no reason they couldn't be in TWOK uniforms by that point. Indeed, many of the post-TMP novels written over the past 30 years have assumed those uniforms were adopted no more than a couple of years after TMP. (My own post-TMP fiction is agnostic on the issue, since I haven't yet done anything set between 2275 and 2279. Although my personal preference would be to keep the TMP uniforms as long as possible, since I'm one of the few people who likes them and hates the TWOK uniforms.)
