At the very least, I'd halve the estimate, on account of these future kids learning calculus as preteens and whatnot.

You've brought that up before and I wonder how much merit it has taking into account the longer range of information that dropped.

I assume you're pulling that factoid from "When the Bough Breaks" (S01E17). Later in DS9, we learn Jake is learning Algebra at about the inappropriate age for today's standard. I suppose one could argue its college level algebra by that point, but even so.

The one truism that I am making a point here is that Trek writers are horrible about staying on the same page with background information about characters / events :-\.
