I really don't think I needed to see Klingoobs like that.

This is before Kirk is Captain, Pike is Captain at the moment I think. The Enterprise was about 20 years old by the time of TOS so would be about 10 years old during Discovery. Burnham also mentioned the Enterprise as a ship Tilly would want to try and get assigned to.
I'd like to hope that they've maybe time travelled into the future of the TV timeline or something, but I hope they don't use this as an excuse to go "well now it's a totally different universe and we can do what the strawberry float we want without worrying about continuity" because there really doesn't need to be a third Star Trek timeline. If they wanted to do whatever they want they should've made something set post-Nemesis rather than a prequel.
