... that you like.
They've been enjoyable for me.
In the lead-up to TNG, I read somewhere (maybe Starlog) that the Galaxy class ships were supposed to be on 20 year missions (hence the families on board). I suspect that was a Gene's Vision (TM) thing that got scrapped by about the third season.
So due to the fact that in the premiere, they are celebrating the 250th anniversary of Starfleet, the events of season 3 take place around 2411. So if one was to take the Instagrams logs info about the Enterprise-F launching in 2386 at face value and them being decommissioned in 2411 that would still give the Enterprise-F twenty five years of service and a long history of adventures which I could get behind. Granted that I'm still a little salty about them decommissioning in its first live-action appearance.
Is it confirmed that Frontier Day is marking 2161? It doesn't feel like a decade since season 2. Maybe five years max.
Starfleet could have predated the founding of the Federation, given that the Romulan War was going on.
The Romulan War was over in 2160 with the Battle of Charon
Precisely, so I’m asking if this episode is positively confirmed as taking place in 2411, or if it’s an assumption.
Frontier Day is celebrating the 250th Anniversary of Starfleet. It can't be the Earth Starfleet, it's way too late for that, so it would have to be the Federation Starfleet.
"Frontier Day" is a bit of an odd name for the anniversary of Starfleet, though, isn't it? Why not, crazy thought here, "Starfleet Day"?
Probably because Starfleet explores the Final Frontier.
Then why not Final Frontier Day? They don't refer to First Contact Day as just "Contact Day".
Why are you so picking? Frontier is fine, they explore the frontier of Federation space.
Because they liked Frontier Day. Simple, easy to remember, and is easily translated across multiple languages, while "final frontier" only has meaning to humans and could very well mean death to others.
Translations: making marketing hard since 1907.
Because I'm trying to figure out the logic and rationale.
It's pretty simple, Starfleet explores the frontier of federation space.
Unless Starfleet was founded prior to 2161, possibly under the Coalition of Planets.
Starfleet Day is for Earth Starfleet. A new name was needed for the Fed SF day.
Perhaps there's also a UESPA Day
Well Dave Blass says it's 2401, so presumably Frontier Day celebrates the launch of the NX-01 and the start of Starfleet's major exploration missions.
That makes sense. NX-01 was the first deep space exploration ship.
Starfleet as an organization existed before that, but their objectives were defense, reconnaissance, research, border patrols,…
No one boldly went anywhere where no Vulcan has been before that.
Umm, season 2 was set in late 2401. I got the feeling more time has passed than mere weeks/months.
Rios says he's from 2400, so it kinda fits.
