Re: Could stardates make some sense?

Another fudge/possibility is that the Stardates in the new movies are an even more simplified version of FASA's "reference stardates", basically a slightly modifed version of the old fandom/Franz Joseph YYMM.DD system (plus century, and laid out thusly: C/YYMM.DD), which was a Federation-wide standard concurrent to the starship/mission/location -variable stardates of the TOS TV series and movies. This would sort-of explain why the JJverse comics lapsed into TOS stardates on occasion.
