Not really. Its the closest we've got, and the Okudas obviously worked on the production at the time so they had a lot of cred. But a lot of the entries in the book have got the footnote "conjecture" attached to them. I tend to look at it as only being as valid as any other piece of Star Trek fiction. Certainly an interpretation of events, but not necessarily the right interpretation of events.

That having been said, it was an interesting read and an updated edition is long overdue.
Just to make sure... we are not talking about The Bible right now?
No. The difference being most of humanity has been exposed to bias in understanding the data presented in the Bible.

Come to think of it, bias may likewise affect peoples acceptance of various Trek chronologies, too.
