Yep. They don't outright say it in the film, but it's accepted backstory (like in the script Bible or whatever) and I think it would have been explored had those characters become the original TNG as intended. It adds a nice extra element to the tension between Kirk and Will Decker in TMP.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
