Using the stardate given in "Charlie X" (1533.1), coupled with the calendar date given in that episode ("Thanksgiving," which falls on 23 November in 2265), a range of stardates for 2268 was devised: 4794-5999, which results in 3.29 stardates per 24 hours. Using this range as a guide, the following ranges were calculated per month for 2268:

  • January: 4794-4895
  • February: 4896-4990
  • March: 4991-5092
  • April: 5093-5191
  • May: 5192-5293
  • June: 5294-5392
  • July: 5393-5494
  • August: 5495-5596
  • September: 5597-5695
  • October: 5696-5797
  • November: 5798-5896
  • December: 5897-5999

These date ranges are, of course, approximate; calendar dates on other entries have been calculated based upon these ranges, except where explicitly given in the original story.
