Welcome to Star Trek Answers. What would you like to know?

[-39] 01785.00 is the REAL f***ing answer, retard.

Actually, there is no REAL answer. The Stardate system is made-up. Writers and producers have selected numbers using different methods over the years, some more random than others, which makes it impossible to convert all stardates into equivalent calendar dates. This is compounded by the fact that stardates were originally intended to disguise the precise era of Star Trek, clarified only later on the show.


actually, the Stardate system has a basic pattern that can be plotted out and used to identify dates just like the first answer, but the system loses accuracy if you go back too far before the 23rd century, as noted by the negative number given above. On all canon occasions where a date was given for a time before the system was invented, the date was given as a gregorian calender date, in other words they would say June 7th, 1949-Cpthunt 18:39, August 4, 2011 (UTC)
