Save this Stardate: Sunday, January 4, 1998. STX

The Star Trek Encyclopedia CD-ROM defines "stardate" thusly:  "Timekeeping system used to provide a standard galactic temporal reference, compensating for relativistic time dilation, warp-speed displacement, and other peculiarities of interstellar space travel. (To those interested in the minutiae of stardate computation ... we shamelessly refer you to Appendix I in the 1996 edition of our book, Star Trek Chronology: The History of the Future, by Michael Okuda and Denise Okuda)".

For an overview see the "Stardates in Star Trek Mini-Faq" at
