Re: Charting the Novel-verse's Discontinuities
^Harve Bennett says there was a 6-month shakedown between TVH and TFF, so I put TWOK through TVH in '85 and TFF in early '86. I'm not happy with the bizarre choice to put TWOK in '85, but so many novels and comics have referenced that date by now that we're stuck with it.
If you take the 2283 date for the Romulan Ale as an Earth date (which seems to me like the likely intent), you need to put TWOK at least a few years later; otherwise the "stuff takes a while to ferment" line makes no sense.
