Is it said that the klingons use this counting?
You could understand it like: The year "1000" is "one thousand years after kahless" but maybe kronos rotated around its 
sun 2000 times, "2000 DIS".

You're right about the creativitiy of the writers!
Not only one year is the same as one year, also Kronos must have a 24-hour-day. How else could they adapt to our 
time system? Is really every day divided into 24 rep, divided into each 60 tup, into each 60 lup, which have *exactly* the 
same length as one second? Weird, isn't it?

Note that this is may be the current year in the game, but the actual current year is 2379 A.D.
(interesting that they still use the same dialect... or maybe again?!  ;-)
