Yeah, I don't see the need to try to handwave it away. It's just a mistake -- or rather, an inconsistency arising from the producers not having settled on a timeframe yet. Just assume they said "four hundred years" instead of "nine hundred."
If only someone had read the de Forest Research notes for the episode, which included the following comment:

Then you’ve been looking in on doings nine hundred years past. Other scripts have placed Star Trek c. 200 years in the past, e.g. Shore Leave. That places this reference in the 13th century.
