Of all the retcons and misconceptions which have attached themselves to TOS over the years, I get the distinct feeling that the whole “200 years vs. 300 years thing is your “favorite”!


Yeah, it's just so stupid and annoying! "Hey, the STAR TREK timeline doesn't fit the real world! We have to 'fix' it!" Idiocy. And, thankfully, something CBS/Paramount has allowed me to ignore.

As I have often said (in many contexts) the people who created the concept probably got it right!!

I never ceased to be amazed at just how little was actually explained/quantified in TOS. 

A high percentage of details which are now taken for granted come from after the fact explanations devised by fans and TREK spin-off show writers to fill in the gaps. Things like the timeline, Sulu and Uhura’s first names, etc., etc.
