...and I believe the old Star Trek Chronology book actually leaves a year between IV and V.
Which doesn't make a lot of sense based on the dialogue of the movie. Kirk said he gave Scott three weeks to get the Enterprise in shape...

KIRK: You told me you could have the ship operational in two weeks. I gave you three. What happened?
The Enterprise may have been assigned to a five-month initial deployment at the end of Star Trek IV only to come back in worse shape than she left for Star Trek V (the warranty expired), requiring Scotty to oversee an overhaul.
