^Yes, exactly. Orci's a busy TV/film producer. He doesn't have time to oversee the entirety of Trek Lit. He's only involved with overseeing Abramsverse tie-ins, and judging from how many inconsistencies there are between the films and the comics, it doesn't seem his oversight is particularly close.
Which is about the level of inconsistencies I've come to expect from Star Trek.


Throughout its entire history, Star Trek has always been full of inconsistencies (James T. Kirk vs. James R. Kirk?). As have, frankly, most ongoing franchises. Even those most dedicated to consistency often ended up with their supposedly "canonical" tie-ins (e.g., Babylon 5 and its novel line during the series).
