Happy New Year all Voyager fans!
Do they celebrate new years in space? Or do they save it for when the Stardate-ometer rolls over to 80000.00 or something
They can actually celebrate new year because the stardates are adapted to normal calenders.
31 December 2371 23.59 has the Stardate 48999.99
1 January 2372 00.01 has the Stardate 49000.01
Happy New Year to everyone too!
If it's the Year of the Neelix it'll be even more happy!
Except for Tuvok.
So even though it's supposed to be an intergalactic timekeeping system, It's really just a fancy rearrangement/expression of earth time.
And fans got mad when the recent movies had Stardates as EARTHYEAR.DAY
I think that it was Michael Okuda who came up with the method for creating Stardates and that it was used by the wirters and producers for TNG and later on for DS9 and Voyager.
It works fine actually!
I downloaded a Stardate Converter from a website many years ago, I don't know if the site is still there, and use it for convering Stardates to Earthdates for different episodes.
Of good use when I created the Voyager timeline on the Kes Website.
So what we will have is not the Age of Aquarius but the Year of Neelix?
Happy New Year from Germany,
