This is the retcon - that the "Starship Class" suggests there be a USS Starship. Why?
A retcon would be saying "Starship Class" meant something other than what it's original idea was.

Since you've pointed out there is no evidence to prove either way what it meant, again, how is it a retcon?

And if you didn't notice before, it is my suggestion that there is a USS Starship which is just my opinion.
You're right. Poor choice of words to say retcon.

On the other hand, REtroactive CONtinuity would imply taking something from a subsequent series and applying it to TOS, wouldn't it?

Never mind me. I'm old and easily confused.
IIRC, originally it meant revealing past events that were previously unrecorded. Roy Thomas was the master/originator of this with comics like the Invaders and the All-Star Squadron.
