Storytelling – Stories that take place in multiple generations using the
reflections of a character must follow a set of guidelines:
telling the story must be able to speak with firsthand knowledge. This means that the storyteller must be
present in every scene in the past.
In the case of
“two friends reminiscing,” at least one of the parties must be present at all
times, though the narrative doesn’t need to switch between the two
Within the Star Trek Universe, the issue of stardates, especially when it comes
to the era of The Original Series, is hazy at best. While the later series did their best to
establish a linear passage of time, the original numbering system was erratic
and unrealistic when expanded for use within the entire timeframe. As such, it is our policy that we will use
the following system:
for the NX era will be Earth-standard calendar years (ex. September 14, 2157).
for the TOS era will be starship-centralized (each ship establishes its own
stardate, with the date of commission or refit being the standard 0000.0).
for the TNG era and beyond will adhere to the established stardate system. All stardates revolve at one year being equal
to 1000.0 (by this rule, about forty years previous to the start of TNG, the
stardate system was reworked for all Federation-affiliated starships).
