I don't think Constitution Class ships just sit around in orbit for 6 months, they seem to keep rather busy, rendevous to pick up vaccines, checking on colonists, responding to distress calls, etc etc.

The return of Kirk from his 5YM, with his ship and crew "relatively intact" is from Roddenberry's own TMP novelization.
