I kid you not.
That's the reason there's that "Star Fleet Universe" icon on every product.
Because that's what it is.
Not the Star Trek universe but the Star Fleet universe.
I don't know when they started it but it's the official stance by the people who make the game.
Doesn't make it any less great than it is though.
However it does have an entirely different history in "both directions" from the perspective of the Original Series.
You can read a bit more about it on their own page:

Yes and no.
The Klingon coordinate system is not based on sqares like ours, it's based on triagles.
And of course you can use triangles to build a hex out of them.
I think this is what you mean:
