Well, Inside Star Trek wasn't published until 1996, and it upended a lot of conventional wisdom about ST. Maybe nobody knew the real story until Solow told it in the book. The credits did say that the episode was based on a story by Brown, and as Solow said, the production didn't tell Brown the script had already been written at the time they offered to buy the story. Maybe they were embarrassed to admit what had really happened, and so it took a while before the truth came out.
