That it is an alternate history/future is fannish rationalization that allows everything on screen to "fit". It's a bit like hording, they can't throw anything away.
I don't think it's hoarding. I just tend to think that events like the Saturn V probe or the Eugenics Wars or the 1968 Nuclear Weapons platform give the universe its own distinct flavor.
I guess. I'm of the school if is didn't happen in our past it didn't happen in Star Trek's past either. That's the approach the writers took most of the time. So I'm more than willing to shift the Eugenics War to the next Century.
