From: jfy@cis.ksu.edu (Joseph F. Young) Date: 9 Apr 93 21:49:21 GMT Newsgroups: alt.startrek.creative,rec.arts.startrek.misc,rec.arts.startrek.tech Subject: Kasey K.S. Chang's Timeline (new version) S T A R T R E K M A S T E R T I M E L I N E by Kasey K.S. Chang Part A of THE ULTIMATE STAR TREK REFERENCE ST:TNG Season 6 Update 3: 4/5/93 Now includes information from _Star Trek Chronology_! Part 1 READ THIS FIRST WHY ANOTHER TIMELINE? Simple, I am STILL not satisfied with what I have read so far. Before the OFFICIAL _Star Trek Chronology: The History of the Future_ (STC) by Michael and Denise Okuda, the best timeline available was the one by Stone and Finkas. Unfortunately, the Stones and Finkas timeline (SFT from now on) only refer to the events that have been referenced to onscreen, thus ignoring any offscreen evidence, such as the TNG Tech Manual (TNGTM). STC refered to the implied dates, but ignored all novels and TAS. I fully understand that there are people who consider only the screened evidence "canon". However, with _Star Trek Chronology_ in print, there is more to be considered as "canon". I decided to explore the bigger picture, presenting all evidence, but weighted screened evidence heavier than the other evidences available. All entries are documented and attributed, so you can ignore the unscreened evidence at your leisure. This timeline was not designed to be the timeline to end all timelines, so indubitably there are timelines that are more comprehensive than mine. As for authenticity... Only the one being written by the Okudas will be more official than this one. FORMAT OF TIMELINE I have incorporated BOTH Stardate and OED (Old Earth Date a.k.a. Gregorian Date) year references into the timeline. If a Stardate is given, it is noted, with an estimated OED year given. All events are sorted by approximate year, then Stardate, unless Stardate is clearly incorrect. I have attempted to incorporate all screened Star Trek sources available, including The Original Series (TOS), The Animated Series (TAS), The Movies, (ST:TMP, ST2-6), The Next Generation (TNG) (as many episodes as I can), and now, Deep Space Nine (DS9). Occasionally you will find references to some after-market books such as the TNG Tech Manual, TNG Companion, and ST Chronology. Those will be clearly labeled as such so you can ignore them as you wish. Also, in the TNG section, some TNG comics are included for completeness's sake. Titles of the TNG novels are in the TNG section as well, plus occasionally a reference to a TOS novel or two . When events conflict in timing, emphasis is placed in the following order: TOS/TNG/Movies, TAS, TNG Companion, Star Trek Chronology (STC), TNG Tech Manual, everything else (novels, other tech references, etc.). The source in front is assumed to be "more canonical" than those in the back, and thus overrules "less canonical" sources if there is a conflict. ORGANIZATION ** READ THIS FIRST This section that you are reading now ** TIMELINE The timeline itself ** APPENDIX Appendix, abbreviations and bibliography ** EXPLANATIONS Explanations of how I got what I got ** FOOTNOTES To the timeline, additional explanations DISCLAIMER Placement of all events within the Star Trek time frame is solely my own interpretation except for events which were dated within the show proper and/or official sources. Dates are based on best evidence available. As new information becomes available timeline will be updated.

A prototype capable of warp 4 (TOS scale) was released on a trial basis. The Preservers within the galaxy were wiped out (?) by the Borg.

How about a TOS one?) S T A R T R E K T I M E L I N E by Kasey K.S. Chang Last Update: 4/5/93 Part 4 : EXPLANATIONS Note: calculations are not perfect, due to the vagrancies of the human speech. All "circa" year references should be +/- 3 years margin of error. NAILING DOWN THE MAIN PIECES There are two pieces of main evidence which helps date Star Trek firmly. They are "Data's quote" and "Sarek's ages". Data have stated in the episode TNG:"The Neutral Zone", that the "Old Earth Year" is 2364. That was a first season episode. TNG:TM have also stated that NCC-1701-D was launched in late 2363, therefore TNG started in early 2364. Sarek was 202 as stated by Picard in the episode TNG:"Sarek". That was a fourth-season episode, therefore it happened in 2367. Sarek was then born in 2164. In TOS:"Journey to Babel", Sarek was approx. 102. (A stickler will tell you 102.607) Since that was a second season episode, that put TOS starting at 2164 + 102 - 2 = 2264, and the episode in 2265/66. Also, McCoy's age can be used to solve part of the puzzle. McCoy is in his forties in TOS (if someone knows the exact number and episode, please let me know), and is 137 when he visited the NCC-1701-D in the series premiere (TNG:EaF). Since ST:TNG started in 2364, McCoy was then born in 2227, which makes McCoy 40 in the second season of TOS, close enough. (I think someone said McCoy's 43 in 2nd season?) These should nail down all of the televised episodes. The Animated Series is assumed to have immediately followed the unfinished The Original Series, to complete the five year mission. STC chose to ignore all of TAS, which p***ed off lots of people. ST:TMP was judged to have occurred in 2271, since the novel that preceded it, "A Flag Full of Stars" (AFFoS) by Brad Ferguson, occurred in 2269, the tricentennial of Apollo landing on Luna. One and a half years have been added since ENTERPRISE was not completed yet. Also, it has been 2.8 years since Spock have went off to study Kolinhar (see ST:TMP novelization), and that could only happen after the FYM finished. The FYM finished in 2267/2268, plus 3 = 2270/2271. Interestingly, The introduction in the ST6:TUC ENTERPRISE model kit (AMT/ERTL) puts ST:TMP in 2276, contradicting TOSN:AFFoS. ST3:TSFS was placed in 2285 by the TNG Technical Manual, as the entry clearly stated that NCC-1701 was lost defending the Mutara Sector against a Klingon incursion in this year. ST4:TVH and ST2:TWOK, for this reason, belongs in this year as well, since not much physical time elapsed among the three films, except perhaps a month or two. ST4 happened approximately 3 months after ST3, according to Kirk's remarks in the novelization. ST5:TFF is in 2286 since the crew get a new year to break in the new ship (esp. Scotty), or "proper shakedown". It could go in 2285 if needed. ST6:TUC is placed in approximately 2292/93 based on the evidence in the novelization: Kirk said it was ten years plus one since death of David (ST3). The placement is NOT official, but should be about right. The evidences available are contradictory. Variance here is +/- 4 years. NOW THE HOLES After establishing the basis of the timeline, we start filling in the pieces. There are many holes to fill in: * Before history (before AD) * Pre-Federation (before 2161) * Early Federation (before 2200 approx) * Before Star Trek (before 2264, like Pike, April, etc) * Lost Years 1 (2268-2271, between FYM and ST:TMP) * Lost Years 2 (2271-2284, between ST:TMP and ST2:TWOK) * Lost Years 3 (2286-2293, between ST5:TFF and ST6:TUC) * Between eras (2293-2364, between ST6:TUC and TNG) Let's deal with them one by one: BEFORE HISTORY This area was not really mentioned by Star Trek other than offhand references to "history" of exotic locations. Often they are results of war and devastation. These wars include: Slaver Empire (TAS), Arret (TOS), Preservers (TOS/TNG), Borg (TNG), Tkon Empire (TNG), The Makers (TOS), and much more. They are referenced with the dates and years given in the episodes. The connection between the Borg and the Preservers was suggested by Peter David in his "giant" TNG Novel "Vendetta". The Preservers constructed the Doomsday Machine (TOS) in order to combat the Borg. By the tone of the descriptions, that happened about 10,000 BC. The origin of the Romulans would be another puzzle, which was solved by the information given in Diane Duane's novel "The Romulan Way", which is essentially Romulan History written in the same style as "Spock's World". So please refer to "The Romulan Way" for any questions about Romulan History in this timeline. PRE-FEDERATION To do this part, I did two things: researched on the ships named ENTERPRISE, and read the Stones/Finkas timeline on pre-Federation days. Three things need to be resolved for our "future history": 1) Was there a World War III? If so how come there is still Star Trek? (Or: How come we are still here?) 2) If so, when/what is the war that was mentioned in TOS:"Space Seed"? That "Eugenics War"? Is it same as World War III? If not, then what? 3) What is that "Mind Control Revolt" Gene wrote about in the ST:TMP novelization? 4) What is that "post-atomic horror" in TNG:"Enc@Farpoint"? 5) When is "The First Romulan War"? All entries since American Revolutionary War up to Y1992 is historical research via an on-line encyclopedia. According to the Stones/Finkas Chronology, "Eugenics War" occured between 1992-1996, and appeared to be a limited revolt instead of global warfare. Some geneticists created "superhumans" like Khan, and planned to take over the world. They lost, and was forced to exile into space. The conjecture agrees with STC. WW3 is still unaccounted for. I decided to put WW3 in 2039-2043, to go just before the "Mind Control Revolts" in 2043-2047. Perhaps Mind Control Revolts are an after-effect of WW3. In TNG:"Encounter at Farpoint", early 21st century military forces were controlled with mind control and drugs. Those are the roots of the "Mind Control Revolt". The novel "Strangers from the Sky" provided quite a few details about life in the Early 21st century. The exploratory expeditions toward nearby stars were already launched. As the novel was based on the "Star Trek Concordance", the dates are slightly off when compared with "newer" evidences. They were moved accordingly. The dates were moved again, when the TNGComp revealed that the "new United Nations", or United Earth, is dissolved in 2079. That means for more than a few decades Earth is in constant turmoil while having interstellar capabilities... Dangerous time to be in. Any way, I moved down the first contact dates even further down to after 2090. They should probably be somewhere in the 2130's... We probably met the Vulcans a bit earlier, as not to totally mess up the novel "Strangers from the Sky". It does appear that a piece of Earth was embroiled in an nuclear exchange (hmmm... Israel got nuked with Syria?) and that's where I believe the "post-atomic horror" is. It is NOT a global war so rest of us live on. One more thing. As TNGComp also revealed, the first Romulan War is NOT fought by the Federation, but rather by Earth. Which means it was fought BEFORE 2161, when Earth is still exploring the unknown. I have therefore placed the war in approximately 2156, which is confirmed by STC. EARLY FEDERATION Only birthdates filled this era, as no info is available from any where. This would be an interesting period to cover by fan fiction, in my opinion. The new races are still trying to accept each other. Most ships are manned by mostly humans, with just a few adventurous Alphacents, Andorians, Vulcans, etc. Do I see any hands? Someone wrote "Star Trek: The First Generation-- Adventures of the HORIZON", which was not bad, but will that person finish it? BEFORE STAR TREK The missions of Captain April and Captain Pike were not recorded except in small pieces. In this category goes these sources: TOS:"The Cage", TOSN:"Final Frontier", TOSN:"Legacy", and TOSN:"The Rift". Most of the dates hinted at or mentioned in the novels are included. Other important events in this period include The First Klingo- Federation War (sometimes known as The Four Years War), Invention of the Transporter, Discovery of Dilithium and its enhancement to warp travel, and invention of the first type of photon torpedo. LOST YEARS 1 The "official" Lost Years, this period is considered to be the period after Kirk's five year mission and before ST:TMP. This period is covered by two novels: TOSN:"The Lost Years", and TOSN:"A Flag Full of Stars". The second novel, with the tricentennial of the Apollo Landing, is placed in 2269, which means ST:TMP occured in 2271. That in turn means the five year mission ended in 2268. As Gene had expressed reticense toward any stories in this era, it is doubtful that more stories during this time will be told, unless Rick Berman decided to break with tradition. There were two more books scheduled in this period, and we won't ever see them. Too bad. LOST YEARS 2 The period between ST:TMP and ST2:TWOK is quite long, over 13 years in fact. (Which makes Khan's "fifteen years" somewhat understated, when you add 13 (till ST:TMP) + 2.8 (TOSend to ST:TMP) + 2 (2nd season to TOSend), but perhaps Ceti Alpha V have longer year?) It can probably be assumed that Kirk, after ST:TMP, was made "acting captain", which was the position of many novels set after ST:TMP, including most of the Diane Duane's Trek novels. He probably went on a second five year mission in the new ENTERPRISE (giving credence to the never filmed "Star Trek II" series, which in reality became ST:TMP), and after that, forced to take a desk job more permanently this time, as Commandant of StarFleet Academy. After that, the ship probably spent a year in the docks for refits, and Spock took over as Captain, with blessings from Kirk. In order to take care of all of the years, Spock probably went on a five year mission of his own, then the ship was "retired" from front-line to be the Academy training ship and home reserve. Remember, all these are merely conjectures, based on best evidence available. They are NOT official, but probably should be. (grin) LOST YEARS 3 Many of us wondered what had happened between ST5:TFF and ST6:TUC. There were little information available for a period of approximately 10 years. The only "notable" and "solid" information is Sulu's gaining command of the EXCELSIOR. Additional details came from the novelization. This may be a bit of an awkward time to write about since ENTERPRISE have three captains onboard: Kirk, Spock, and Sulu (until EXCELSIOR). Most likely events would be Kirk retained command of his ship and Spock stepped down and performed as Kirk's first officer. They then went on to some boring assignments like frontier charting, and perhaps another five year mission. BETWEEN ERAS After ST6:TUC, we move into the unknown. Most of the TNG characters are just being born in the next thirty years. However, the character biographies and the "historical" references in ST:TNG have included many details that helped fill in this period of over half of a century. Included in this period are voyages of STARGAZER, the Third Klingo- Federation War, The Cardassian War, voyages of the NCC-1701-B, voyages of the NCC-1701-C, and various other events. With the airing of TNG:"Relics", we found that Scotty retired 75 years before 2369, which is 2294. This must be soon after ST6, which means NCC- 1701-A probably is decommissioned after ST6, or at least retired, or Scotty would have gone to hell and yonder to be with his ship. Besides, Scotty said he thought that Kirk took the old gal out of mothballs to get him. There is a Third Klingo-Federation War (the second was stopped in the middle by Organians), since Riker had said so in TNG:"The Emmissary". With that idea, I invented the final demise of Kirk and the NCC-1701-A to fit in here. If you don't like it, feel free to scream at me. The basic idea is Romulans provoked more border incidents between the Klingons and the Feds, and Kirk have to haul out the NCC-1701-A out of a disposal yard and travel to Kronos again... And this time, he'll die out there, alone. Not long after the end of the Third Klingo-Federation War, the Cardassian War started. It was mentioned especially in UNIFICATION I, in which Perrin mentioned that Spock had attacked Sarek's position on it. The dates are moved slightly to fit in the info from TNG:"Ensign Ro" about the Bajorans, and moved yet again with information from DS9:"Emmissary". There is almost no info on the NCC-1701-B other than what was written in the TNG Tech Manual. I heard that the new NCC-1701-D cutaway chart has the name of NCC-1701-B's captain. However, I seems to have forgotten who that would be. All we know about the NCC-1701-C is from the episode, TNG:"Yesterday's ENTERPRISE", and the TNG:TM. FUTURE OF STAR TREK For all the Trekkies and Trekkers, there is still plenty to write about in all areas. What was it like in the pre-warp days? Early-warp days? What aspects of the Federation have we not covered yet? Deep Space Nine should give you a lot of other ideas. What wil happen after TNG? This timeline hopefully can give you enough specific references to write your own stories and lend it some "authenticity". Add imagination and persistence, and you have a Trek writer in training! Good luck! Live long and prosper! Kasey K.S. Chang treknologist Part 5/5: FOOTNOTES FOOTNOTES 1 Obviously, this is a scientific theory, as noted in STC. 2 As noted in STC, Guardian said in "The City on the Edge of Forever" that it has been awaiting a question "since before your sun burned hot in space and before your race was born". Which means it must be at least 5 billions years old, according to current estimates to the age of the sun. 3 Again, STC noted it as scientific theory. 4 Q told Picard that the folks on Tagus "really knew how to have fun" two billion years ago. 5 Noted in STC as scientific theory 6 As noted in STC, Ayelborned said that his people evolved beyond the need for physical bodies millions of years ago. 7 From STC, page 3. Picard said that he had studied ancient Bajoran civlization in fifth grade, and that the ancient Bajorans had flourished "when humans were not yet standing erect". Homo Erectus is current dated at least 500,000 years ago. 8 As noted in STC, Spock said that the star had been fading for a half million years. 9 As noted in STC, page 3, Vina told Pike about the war. 10 As noted in STC, page 4, per Captain Donald Varley's evidence. 11 As noted in STC page 4, the cycle of rebirth is once every 50000 yrs. 12 STC put "The Doomsday Machine" at this time. The rest of the information was from TNGN:"Vendetta". 13 Picard was describing the history ot the Tagus archaeological research in his speech to the council, from STC. 14 Odan had remarked that his people have survived in this fashion for "millennia", from STC. 15 McCoy remarked that the people have had "no change or progress in at least ten tousand years". From STC. 16 Noted by STC, Tam Elbrun noted that Tin Man had been wandering in space for millennia. 17 Spock noted that Yonada has been in transit for 10,000 years. 18 Noted in STC, page 5, the planetoid is "a few thousand years old". 19 When Worf remarked how Galrami looked puny for a warrior, Data said something like "their reputation as master strategists have not been challenged for nine millenium." 20 As noted in STC, page 6, Spock noted that Landru had built and programmed the machine 6,000 years ago. 21 Gary Seven described mission to his computer, as noted in STC. 22 Just history, noted by STC. 23 Rashalla noted that their shield "has confused outsiders for millennia", as noted in STC. 24 Parman said they arrived at Platonius about 2500 years ago. 25 Spock noted that the rounds had bene held by his family for over 2000 years. It would appear that the grounds predated the Reformation. 26 The Reformation was never properly dated, so this is an approximation based on available sources, and seems to fit. 27 Timicin said the Resolution was adopted "fifteen or twenty centuries ago". That was in the 2360's. 28 The Metron said he was about 1500 years old. 29 Riva's chorus noted that the arrangement had lasted for centuries. 30 Vana said Stratos was built "centuries ago". 31 The Thasian, when talking with Kirk, said he was reverting to his form of "centuries ago", which means he had a real body that long ago. 32 Really? I could have swore that the Chinese have observed the stars long before he did... 33 Data described the planet's history. 34 The Indian culture seen are at least 200 years in OUR past, or 500 years or more in Kirk's past. 35 Spock said that the mass insanity was centuries old, from evidence. 36 Governor Leka said the moons have been settled five centuries ago. 37 The entity inhabiting Troi's body said they'd been imprisoned for five centuries. 38 Thanks for Christopher Ward for the correction. The information is from JANE'S FIGHTING SHIPS. 39 In case no one told you, the aircraft carrier in ST4:TVH is NOT the USS ENTERPRISE, but the USS RANGER. 40 The restoration of the "space shuttle" ENTERPRISE is revealed in TOSN: A Flag Full of Stars. 41 Obviously I forgot WHICH one... Someone care to write me about it? (Since no one has written me since initial edition of over a year ago...) 42 Claire died of an embolism. Her husband is Donald. 43 After TNG:"Q Who?" was produced, Gene half jokingly speculated that the planet encountered by Voyager 6 might have been the Borg homeworld. 44 The PEACEKEEPER-class vessels are purely my imagination. But it does sound possible, doesn't it? 45 The date was not stated in the show, but appeared in the script. 46 D.C. Fontana named the character for fellow writer John D.F. Black's three sons: Shaun, Geoffrey, and Christopher. 47 It would make sense to put this here, which meakes the sleeper ships obsolete three years later. 48 Second season episode "Metamorphosis", Y2265, had McCoy stating that Zefram Cochrane was dead for 150 years. Mr.Cochrane himself said he was 87 at the time. Therefore we have 2265-150-87=2029. If the new United Nation would launch the manned expedition to Alpha Centauri around 2048, Mr.Cochrane is a bit too young to have invented the warp drive if he was born in 2029. He would have been 19 years old! Clearly, one of the sources must be wrong. In this case, I chose to take McCoy's words literally and move down the launch date, despite the years given in the STARFLIGHT CHRONOLOGIES. 49 Riker stated that the US flag with 52 stars indicated a date between 2033 and 2079. 50 According to TNGCom, The "new" United Nations was born on 2036 and died at 2079. See page 24. 51 See one of the footnotes at the bottom of the page, as Kirk received his "senceiver" alert, in ST:TMP Novelization. 52 The date given for Zefram Cochrane to invent the warp drive is actually 2048, as given in the novel and in STARFLIGHT CHRONOLOGY. However, as explained above in footnote (3), such date is not possible. Due to the heavier weight given to the screened evidence, all year references given in "Strangers from the Sky" are pushed down for at least 10 years. Furthermore, TNG Tech Manual gave the year of 2061 for the first prototype of the CDP engine. (See page 54, TNG Tech Manual) 53 According to THE WORLDS OF THE FEDERATION, the four light years' trip took six years under high impulse, with time dilation I suppose. 54 The only "reasonable" way for the VALIANT to be at the edge of the galaxy with only "impulse rockets" is through a wormhole of some sort. 55 Prefect jarvis noted that "great awakening" had taken place 200 years before the episode. 56 Earth was still partly a mess in 2079, since Q brought Picard and crew back to the "Post-Atomic Horrors". It could be thought that these are just isolated pockets of un-civilization, rules by warlords. New United Nations did their best to clean out these pockets threatening world peace, but one of them repeatedly tried to procure anti-matter by attacking the research facility where the Cochrane team is located, and the guards couldn't always help. Finally, Cochrane team decided to leave for peace. The above is merely a conjecture by the author, and should not be construed as actual "Star Trek history". 57 The episode stated that the massacre took place 80 years before, and the feud 200 years before that. 58 The BONAVENTURE-class interstellar scout ENTERPRISE was a tribute to the animated episode TAS:Time Trap, in which the BONAVENTURE herself was seen, along with various other old ships. 59 The DECLARATION-class cruise liner ENTERPRISE was mentioned in several previous Star Trek chronologies. 60 The design defect part is from my imagination. The book only said something like "The Romulans used high-powered lasers to explosively decompress the crew chambers. They then towed the cruiser home and soon added small warp drives to their ships." Obviously that cannot be since according to the Chronology, Romulans still do not possess warp drive during the war. 61 I am quite surprised how good this fits the "official" timeline in Star Trek Chronology... I didn't change a thing, I swear! The year fits exactly! Of course, the details came from the novel. 62 While some documents may say "subspace radio", keep in mind that HORIZON, lost in 2168 (seven years later), had to use regular radio, since they never had the subspace radio. 63 There have been arguments over this date all over the place. I've been told that previous estimates (based on Goldstein's STARFLIGHT CHRONOLOGIES) is 2089, while the fandom have came up with the date of 2121. Since 2161 is the year given for "Federation Day" a compromise is reached: Federation started in its embryonic form (like League of Nations before United Nations) in 2089, and was formally declared in 2161. The estimate is now confirmed by the Chronology. 64 StarFleet Academy is shown in TNG:"First Duty". Someone spotted that the StarFleet Academy logo have Roman numerals meaning 2161. 65 As mentioned in Chronology, Solkar doesn't sound like a female Vulcan name. Perhaps Solkar was the grandfather? 66 Hmmm... Is ARCHON a Daedalus-class as ESSEX? 67 As noted in Chronology, Kirk said that subspace radio have not been invented at this point. 68 Dr.Stubbs noted that this star explodes every 196 years. 69 Data said the Daedalus-class have not been in service for 172 years. 70 Ms. Grayson is 52 in the episode, Sarek was 101. 71 See page 128, TNG Tech Manual. 72 Daystrom invented duotronics 25 years before the episode, and Kirk said he was 24 at the time. 73 This would also fit the info given in ST6:TUC, as Spock had said during the briefing, it has been 70 years of conflict. 74 Spock said hostility between the two powers existed for 70 years, as ST6 is set in 2293. 75 If you would recall, in 2364, TNG: Encounter at Farpoint, Data clearly stated that McCoy (okay, he never named him, but who else could it be?) as "one hundred and thirty-seven years old". 2364-137=2227 76 Original estimate was 2230, see how close I was? Chronology said that an early draft of script stated that they have been married for 38 years. 77 Original estimate was 2231, again, only one year off! 78 This birthdate is given by Paramount as "official" info. However, the name of his parents are NOT official. The name of the father was George, which I believe came from TOS:"Operation: Annihilate!". The name of the mother came from the novel TOSN:"ENTERPRISE: First Adventure", and was also used (by a different author) in TOSN:"Time for Yesterday" 79 MANN-class cruisers, saucer-shaped hull, first appeared in the novel THE FINAL REFLECTION by John M. Ford. 80 His pet sehlat I-Chaya was seriously injured, and Spock chose to have it euthanized by a healer. The story is written by D.C.Fontana, and is the only TAS background included in the Chronology. 81 Sulu said he was born in San Francisco in ST4:TVH. He grew up at Ganjitsu, according to Vonda McIntyre in novels "ENTERPRISE:The First Adventure" and "The Entropy Effect. The first name of "Hikaru" was introduced by Vonda McIntyre in "The Entropy Effect", and is formalized into trek fandom by Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, by Sulu's introduction in his Captain's Log. Year is conjectural, and Chronology assumed Sulu was 29 in first season of TOS. 82 Uhura's first name was never formalized, and for decades the fandom argued back and forth. Some say "Penda", others say "Nyota". "Nyota", which means "star" in Swahili, was used in several novels, including the novel "Uhura's Song" by Janet Kagan. Nyota sounds better to me. Also interesting is my estimate of 2240 is only one year off. 83 Spock said the battle was 23 years ago. 84 While there were no evidence that Captain April ever undertook a five year mission on the ENTERPRISE, this is a logical conclusion, both as part of ship's chronology, but also a tribute to the animated episode. It was also implied in the TNG Tech Manual. 85 Just a conjecture... Assuming he's 18 at the time. 86 Lenore was 19 during the episode in 2266. 87 I am not too sure where did McCoy's wife's name came from. I believe I first saw it in the Bantam novel "Day of Judgement", and also later in Pocket's "Dreams of the Ravens". On the other hand, Joanna's name was fixed in the early writer's guides. She was to appear in the episode "The Way to Eden", which was originally named "Joanna". However, a rewrite last minute changed it to the present form. She also appeared in the novel "Crisis on Centaurus". 88 Amanda said father and son have not spoken for eighteen years. 89 Year is about right if we assume Kirk to be seventeen at the time. 90 Kirk said he met Finney while he was a "midshipmen". 91 An ensign in the Academy? Not impossible but rare nowadays. 92 Long footnote in the Chronology... Kirk said his visit to Axanar was as a "new fledged cadet" in WGD, while he got the award in CM. Looks like he was still on the REPUBLIC at that time. 93 The crash occured 14 years prior to the episode in 2266. 94 Graduation is conjectural. Kobayashi Maru was mentioned in ST2:WOK. Several TNG episodes established Starfleet as a four year curriculum. 95 Two weeks prior to the episode. 96 As revealed in TNG:"A Matter of Time", the phasers do not exist in the twenty-second (22nd) century. It was invented in early 23rd century. 97 McCoy:"We walked out of each other's lives ten years ago", which was in 2266. 98 No exact date available, but Mendez did say that it happened "months" before the episode. 99 Tyree said that "firesticks" have appeared near a year before. 100 As noted in Chronology, Kirk said in "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" his brother Sam have three sons. It appears that only Peter was on Deneva at the time. 101 TAS was not included in the dating in the Chronology as Gene did not consider it "canon". They are included in a special section in the appendix as it no longer fits into the timeline proper. See appendix B: for the list of episodes and stardates. 102 According to "The Making of Star Trek", Gene had planned for the CONSITUTION-class vessels to have an 18-year range. Since ENTERPRISE was launched in 2245, 2268-2245=23, > 18. 103 That's a two grade jump, folks. Commodore is the first step, and Kirk skipped that totally! 104 See TNG Tech Manual, page 128. 105 TNG Manual called the refitted ENTERPRISE CONSTITUTION-class. FASA started the ENTERPRISE-class, and the dedication plaque as given in SCOTT'S GUIDE says STARSHIP-class. Finally... The CORRECT answer: CONSTITUTION- class, as shown on bridge graphics in ST6:TUC. 106 This is seen in many novels, including TOSN: Spock's World, TOSN:Deep Domain, and so on, where Kirk is both an Admiral and Acting Captain. Now confirmed by Chronology. 107 Most of these events are documented in my previous edition of this timeline, and are only one year off. 108 BOZEMAN's registry number is NCC-1941. 109 While we have no evidence of Spock leading a five-year mission, this would only be logical for the numbers to work out right. Otherwise we will leave a big five-year gap in the middle with nothing. 110 See Chronology, page 73. 111 Gene stated he consider ST5:TFF to be apocryphal, and this was included for completeness' sake only. 112 Gene Roddenberry had stated MANY MANY times that he does not like the idea of Transwarp, therefore it is a failure. TNG:TM confirmed it. 113 A fun fact to observe... The motto of the EXCELSIOR is "No matter where you go, there you are." (from Buckaroo Banzai) 114 One wonders if this refers to the Transwarp failure... 115 Geordi said It's been 80 years since the Soyuz-class went out of service. 2369-80 ~= 2288. 116 In the Novelization, McCoy was spoiling his two grandchildren (one of them two years old), when he was called to the briefing in StarFleet HQ. 117 Obviously no relation to me... Haha. 118 ST6 happened approximately in 2292 since Scotty disappeared sometime in 2293 according to TNG:"Relics". 119 Scotty would not have retired if his bairns are still running, ya know. Besides, he said "The ENTERPRISE, eh? I should've known, lad. And I'll bet it's Kirk who hauled the old gal out of mothballs to come looking for me." 1701-A was mothballed, no question about it. 120 The Stardate came from the novelizaiton. Quite a bit of difference. 121 Polaski said that the outbreak is 70 years before the episode in 2365. 122 Dr. Clark said the contact was 70 years ago. 123 This date is just a guess on my part. Someone said Johnson? commands this ship, from the new cutaway Galaxy-class poster. 124 Data said the contact was 62 years prior to episode in 2364. 125 Picard was fifty-five (55) in the novelization. 126 Well... Someone said July 13, 2305, TNG:"Conundrum" I think. 127 Kira said to Sisko when they first met that "The Cardassians said the same thing sixty years ago." DS9 is in 2370, -60 = 2310. 128 Here are my reasons for the conjecture: Page 118, UNIFICATION novelization SPOCK: A personal decision, Captain. Perhaps you are aware that I played a small role in the first overture to peace with the Klingons. [note that he said "first overture"] PICARD: History is aware of the role you played, Ambassador. SPOCK : Not entirely. It was I who asked Kirk to lead the peace mission. And I who had to accept the responsibility for the consequences to him and his crew. Quite simply, I am unwilling to risk anyone's life but my own on this occasion. I would ask you to respect my wishes and leave. ["consequences"...] Page 119, UNIFICATION novelization SPOCK (to PICARD): In your own way, are are as stubborn as another captain of the ENTERPRISE I once knew. ["once knew"] It is my opinion that these quotes implied that Kirk is no longer alive during the 24th century: The second Spock quote implies that the ENTERPRISE NCC-1701-A was lost with Kirk and crew onboard, but not Spock and McCoy. Spock was distraught over asking Kirk to lead the peace mission, and from there on he became an ambassador himself so he does not have to put others at risk for his decisions. I do not see any other suitable explanations for this quote. Of course, you can say that was a reference to ST6:TUC, and Paramount threw that in to confuse us. However, since there will be a war at approximately 2315 with the Klingons, same thing could happen twice. The third Spock quote probably means Kirk. Others have argued that it could mean Pike, or even April. However those possibilities are slim at best, since Spock knew Kirk best, and the word "stubborn" seems to fit Kirk better than either Pike or April. I believe the war, just before which NCC-1701-A and Kirk was destroyed, happened sometime between 2310 and 2320, due to several reasons. 1) Riker stated in TNG:"The Emissary" that Federation and Klingon Empire were at war fifty years ago. The Emmisary is a second season episode, therefore it happened in 2365. Fifty years ago is about 2315. 2) In TOSN: The Rift by Peter David, it was stated at the end that the next time the rift opened, the Federation is in the midst of the Klingon-Romulan war. Kirk was on the NCC-1701-A in this novel due to the mention of Transwarp and the death of his son, David Marcus. Since ST5 happened in 2286, and the rift opens every 33.34 years, the next opening is after 2319. Therefore the Klingo-Federation War must happen between 2315 and 2319. I fully understand that this theory might be invalidated by the next movie. We shall see. In case you are interested in such a scenario, please look in the alt.startrek.creative archives on USEnet for "The Road Less Travelled" by Dayton Ward. Let me know if you can't find it. 129 TNG:"The Neutral Zone" stated it has been 50 years since anyone sighted a Romulan or any Romulan ship. Obviously, since the 1701-C was attacked by Romulans, they meant "any one left alive". 130 Cardassian War was mentioned many times, including TNG:The Wounded and TNG: Unification I. 131 Pretty darn young, don't you think? :-) 132 According to FASA's "TNG Officer's Manual", NCC-1701-B was destroyed by renegade Klingons and Romulans (in two battleships). However, the stuff in that book are extremely unreliable, therefore I put it here instead of in the timeline itself. 133 According to ST:TNG First Year Sourcebook (FASA), she's 41, which would be about right, despite the "un"-officialness. The maiden name and location of birth are from TNG:"Conundrum". 134 The AMBASSADOR-class is also the first to have a saucer section that is capable of independent deployment (much like the GALAXY-class). Information from TNG Tech Journal. 135 Riker was 32 in the novelization. The middle initial came from a convention. Thelonius was a great jazz player of 20th Century. 136 I don't know if this is true... Recently Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker) started saying at conventions that T. stands for Thomas. Any confirmation? Or is that just a joke? 137 There were quite a bit of argument on whether this was Spock or not. However, evidence suggests that it was Spock. Sybok was gone, and there were no evidence of any other children by Sarek, by Amanda or Perrin. 138 Hmmm... Didn't Deanna said "Ian Andrew" in TNG:"The Child"? 139 And Will Riker blamed his father for it. I wonder why? 140 Did you know that Peliar means "to fight" in Spanish? 141 "Kronos" appeared in ST6:TUC. Also see 42. 142 Worf said he was about six years old when Romulans attacked and destroyed Khitomer in TNG:"The Bonding" 143 We still haven't made up our mind as to what does the Klingons call their homeworld... Early fan fiction suggests "Kazh". John M. Ford's "The Final Reflection" said "Klinzhai". "The Worlds of the Federation" said "Kling", and now ST6:TUC said "Kronos". However, it appears "Kronos" gets the seal of approval. 144 Data said he was "class of 78" in EaF, but that was before the calender was established and is therefore officially ignored. 145 Well... We know Worf is a year or two older than Kern. If we know how old Kern is, we can guess how old Worf is. If we know how old Worf is, we know the attack on Khitomer is when he was six years old, so you know how I got the number. (TNG:"The Bonding") 146 Ent-C wore old emblems in 2344, but Jack Crusher's message dated 2349 have the new emblem on. We arbitrarily picked 2347. 147 Wesley is approximately 16 during the first season, and was officially pronounced 18 in TNG:"Evolution", third season opener. 148 Worf said in TNG:"Heart of Glory" that he was from Gault. Yet in TNG:"Family" Worf said he look forward to meeting his parents on Earth. 149 In the novelization of ENCOUNTER AT FARPOINT, Picard said it was fifteen years ago that he had last seen Beverly Crusher, when he returned her husband's body. In "The Bonding", Wesley said he was less than 12 when his father died. Since we know Wesley's age, we know when Jack died. 150 No, not that "pulling down front of shirt" stuff! 151 See page 57, TNG Tech Manual. 152 Since GALAXY came out 2357, and ENTERPRISE came out 2363, YAMATO should be in between, and 2360 is right in the middle. Which means one should have appeared in 2366, and another in 2369. 153 Stardate according to Page 12, TNG Tech Manual. 154 I am quite aware that there was a controversy out there that O'Brien might be an enlisted person, therefore a chief petty officer. Unfortunately I don't buy that theory. However, it was important enough that I hereby inform you of this controversy and my decision. Besides, TNGComp called O'Brien "lieutenent" at least four times. 155 This must be before EaF... or we have a causaulity loop problem. :-) 156 The previous stardate from TNGN:Encounter at Farpoint is overridden by screened evidence. 157 As you recall, later someone dismantled it discretely and shipped it to Romulans for their scheme. 158 "Symbiosis" have Tasha Yar waving at the end, so it must be first, despite a higher production number than "Skin of Evil". 159 Okona did say it was about six months ago they started... 160 TNGComp mentioned that this was supposed to be a Borg invasion and Feds joined up with Klingons and Romulans to defeat the Borg, but due to the writer's strike, it never materialized. 161 Guinan was first seen in "The Child". "Yesterday's Enterprise" and "Redemption II" shows that she came onboard AFTER Yar's death. Data mentioned the place in "Time's Arrow I", all from Chronology. 162 Did you know that this script was originally written for Kirk and Ilia in the never-produced Star Trek II series? 163 A certain guest star was suppose to be on the show, but didn't make it. As for who... Spell Nagilum backwards. 164 Someone called this episode "Riker's Greatest Hits" (grin) 165 At one ship every three years, this sounds about right, as GALAXY in 2357, YAMATO in 2360, and ENTERPRISE in 2363. 166 Picard said that the treaty was signed about a year before. 167 The numbers came from TNG: Drumhead, during the prosecution (?) of Captain Jean-Luc Picard by Admiral (retired) Saati. 168 GAGE and KYUSHU was mentioned by Saratoga's officer as in position. Melbourne was mentioined too. Saratoga was identified by the captain. 169 Hmmm... There is a ship called the WELLINGTON somewhere... Wonder does that have to do with this? 170 Gee, can you imagine Worf as the first humanoid you see ever? Oh, also, in TNG:"The Game", Wesley asked how is Molly doing. 171 There were several comic books with stardate entries in the middle of UNIFICATION. Those entries have been deleted for authenticity's sake. 172 On Dr.Crusher's screen for death notice of Ensign Ro, there is a stardate: 45892.4.
