To me it makes more sense in the big picture to look at it that way, rather than to try and put a round peg in a square hole and say these things happened in the 90's, and we didn't see them. If that pushes back some of the other dates so be it.

All of the dates we are familliar with could easily be skewed to correct the lag in events. No progressive manned planetary space program, no WWIII (yet), no Khan-person (yet). I see the key to most of this is in relation to our perceived sequence of important events in ST is that there is a resumption of some serious human spaceflight in our "reality" and hopefully no WWIII or Khan happening to slow things down. Then we will start to see some approach to the bigger picture of Star Trek.
