I appreciate your efforts. I think you have put more thought into this than Paramount, at least. I'm not stating that as good or bad.
I had a similar idea when I recently rewatched ST IV, especially the scene with Scotty and the transparent aluminum. You can pretty much say no amount of historical backstory is worth paying attention to because it's always changed and inconsistant in a later show or movie to suit the whim of the writers or get them out of a plot problem.
