Admittedly when ToS was written the very idea of having canon for a series didn't even exist. But in interviews writers for the later series have said that they just flat out ignored canon whenever it was convenient for them or the storyline. Because of this ToS is no more or less inconsistent that any of the other series.

I was obviously stating my opinion. Something that shouldn't have to be written in the preface of every post.

Who appointed you as the validator of opinions? (You're right. Spelled out like that it does make your question look stupid.)
