Re: V'Ger 6 + "more than three hundred years"

Although many TOS quotes suggest 200 years from now, here is one from "The Trouble with Tribbles" that could suggest otherwise:

SPOCK: Undeveloped. Sherman's Planet is claimed by both sides, our Federation and the Klingon Empire. We do have the better claim.
CHEKOV: The area was first mapped by the famous Russian astronomer Ivan Borkoff almost two hundred [years ago?!?]
KIRK: John Burke.
CHEKOV: Burke, sir? I don't think so. I'm sure it was
SPOCK: John Burke was the Chief Astronomer at the Royal Academy in old Britain at the time.

Hopefully Chekov wasn't referring to "parsecs"
