  36. TAS episode: "The Slaver Weapon" - Exactly when the Earth-Kzin Wars took place is unknown, Hikaru Sulu stated they took place 200 years prior to 2270, however this presumably is an approximation; the wars taking place nearer to the end of the 21st century or even the early 22nd century would be more likely as this would give Earth time to build a space force capable of fighting a war so soon after the devastation of World War III and the recent development of warp drive in 2063. It is also notable that placing the wars in this time frame would seem to contradict the state of affairs on Earth as depicted in Star Trek: Enterprise, where Humanity is characterized as have been largely sheltered by the Vulcans and had little contact with other species outside the Vulcan sphere of influence. It is possible the wars occurred later (an episode involving Kzinti was being pitched for Enterprise's fifth season, before cancellation), or that the "wars" were actually very small, more on par with anti-piracy actions, and the Kzinti a threat more on the level of the Nausicaans than the Klingons or Romulans. At this time, this discrepancy is not resolved.
