Critter has become "fascinated" with Star Trek this year. We're watching "The Corbomite Manuever" right now. Critter asked about stardates, and I wasn't surprised that I was about to find Gene Roddenberry's "official" explanation of stardates. I think read it in the "silver" book, which I think was "The Making of Star Trek" but I can't remember the title of the red book: was it "The Worlds of Star Trek"? Ooh, that would be a low-participation pop quiz.

Okay, who's old enough and geeky enough to remember the silver and red books about Star Trek, and their titles? I think Knight is old enough to remember this one...


This time system adjusts for shifts in relative time which occur due to the vessel's speed and space warp capability. It has little relationship to Earth's time as we know it. One hour aboard the U.S.S.Enterprise at different times may equal as little as three Earth hours. The stardates specified in the log entry must be computed against the speed of the vessel, the space warp, and its position within our galaxy, in order to give a meaningful reading.
