Re: Charting the Novel-verse's Discontinuities

^I think the reason they dated the movies that way was to reconcile Nimbus III being around for 20 years as of TFF with the Romulans not being re-contacted until 2266 in "Balance of Terror." Although I've never understood why they didn't just round down. I mean, they put TWOK 18 years after "Space Seed" instead of the explicitly stated 15 years, so why not go the other way with the TFF reference?
