I agree it was probably a bit overkill for the first half of the year to pretty much be exclusively TOS, but I suspect that was partially due to STID's release and partially related to the plans for The Fall series in the second half.
Actually it's been the standard practice for about the past four years to have TOS books dominate one half of the year and 24th-century/other books dominate the other half. So I don't think it's a response to STID. It's just the approach that was already in place.
