Re: Random Thoughts After a TOS Marathon
The finished episode is faulty because it says the war was longer ago than the 23rd century setting would allow.
The fault is not within the episode, as TOS on television never precisely pinned down the century. The blame goes to TWOK (Star Trek II seems to be superceded by the Abramsverse), where we finally are told "In the 23rd century..."
