Re: How much time passes between TMP and TWoK?
Great point! If Kirk's turning 50 in TWOK (which makes perfect sense) and we know Kirk to be born in 2233 from ID... then TWOK must
take place in 2283. In turn, that renders the discussion about the Romulan Ale a sarcastic one.
I'm not clear why that would make TMP 10 years earlier though?
