Re: Stardate mentioned in Spock Prime's ship

For the record...

There was rhyme and reason to the stardate system used in TNG/DS9/VGR. I don't remember how I came to this realization, but, I remember being in study hall in high school, for the better part of a week, figuring out the system.

You take a certain day of the year, say for example, my birthday January 21st...The 21st day of the year...Divide that into 365.25, and you get .0574949 So, if I was alive in the first season of TNG, the my birthdate would have been 41057...And if you divide a 24 hour day up into 10 equal parts (as I was born at 4:34AM), the specific time would have been (after the decimal point), close to 41057.2, which would have been some time just before Encounter At Farpoint.

Don't believe me? Do the math yourself.

As for why they changed it for the Jellyfish computer? Your guess is as good as mine. Incidentally, I was so disgusted with the alternate universe JJ created that I never noticed.

Re: Stardate mentioned in Spock Prime's ship

Based on the 2233.04 stardate for the Kelvin running into Nero and Kirk's birth, that places JTK's entrance into the world around January 17, 2233. Two months earlier than the Okuda calendar originally conjectured for Kirk's birthday(which, admittedly, was based entirely on William Shatner's real-life birthday of March 22nd).

AFAIK, the only voice Majel does is the computer on the Enterprise when Chekov is giving his authorization code.


I am also sure that it was her voice when Kirk released the water valve in Engineering, freeing Scotty (who was trapped in the piping.)
Yeah, those are the only two times I believe the voice was Majel's.

But that coincides nicely with why he wasn't back in Iowa to be born--he was premature!

Could be! Maybe the Narada's attack sent Winona Kirk into premature labor in the seventh month.

Hmmmmm...
