  • Reference Stardate 2/1309: The Aakenn class freighter U.S.S. Mundy is found adrift near Starbase 21 with life support systems operating but without a crew. Millions of live Tribbles are found in the vessel's cargo hold, surviving on the food produced by a still-functioning food synthesizer. Several years later, two Mundy crewmembers will be found, and they will relate how renegade Klingons boarded the vessel, discovered the cargo of Tribbles, and killed or marooned the entire crew.[42]

Notes

Captain Kirk's five-year mission was established to have begun in 2265 in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Q2". The Star Trek episode "The Menagerie, Part I" further establishes that Spock served under Captain Pike for 11 years, and that it had been 13 years since the events of "The Cage," meaning that Stardate 3012.4 fell two years into Kirk's command. The episode "Charlie X" further added weight to this, establishing both Stardate 1533.1 and the Earth date of Thanksgiving, which falls on 23 November in 2265. As the stardates ranged from the mid-1000s to the low 3000s in the first season and continued to increase at approximately 1000 per season afterward, it seems logical to conclude that the first season spanned nearly two years, and later seasons one each, with the second season chronicling the 3000s, the third season the 4000s and 5000s, and the Animated Series the 5000s. If Captain Kirk's command began on or about Stardate 1000, this would put the end of the five year mission on or about Stardate 6000, shortly after the end of the Animated Series. Using these dates as a reference point, the following can be established:

  • Stardate 1000 fell on 13 May 2265.
  • The range for Stardates each year is from X636 to Y635 (e.g., 1636 to 2635)
  • This places "The Menagerie" (Stardate 3012.4) on 18 May 2267, at the beginning of Kirk's third year in command of the Enterprise

The order given for the episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series is taken from the novelizations, which included chronological references and additional story elements. While the novelizations gave new (and more consistent) stardates, the stardates given in the original episode have been retained.
