Default Moonbase Alpha operational date

I thought I would share the fact that Moonbase Alpha is "featured" in the Ernest Cline novel Armada - now as it is full of pop culture references it mentions that in the book context their MBA went operational in September 1988 - now I was thinking it would have been better to make it Sept 1999 to link in with our series but as there are so many references has he gone super geek and quoted a date in our MBA backstory - is this date mentioned anywhere in our 1999 history?
