Don't be silly. TOS is near and dear to my heart, and the Trek I grew up on, but even I wouldn't be so presumptuous as to assert that it's the only "true" Trek. The latter series and movies have all contributed to the vast edifice that is Star Trek.

At this point, I kinda want to vaporize the words "true" and "real" from all discussions of Trek, as they're usually just employed as clubs by people who feel their view of what Star Trek "should" be trumps any other approach.
Sorry, but Greg Bear is the only true Greg, so your contributions cannot be relied upon.
I used to joke about putting together an anthology titled THE ULTIMATE GREG, which would feature contributions by Greg Bear, Greg Benford, Greg Egan, Greg Costikyan, Gregory Frost, and John Gregory Betancourt.

I'd edit it and write the jacket copy, of course!
