[[Starfleet Ranks#Captain|Captain]] [[Kirk, James T.|Kirk]]'s five-year mission was established to have begun in [[Chronology: 2265|2265]] in the ''[[Star Trek: Voyager]]'' episode [[Q2 (Episode)|"Q2"]]. The ''[[Star Trek]]]'' episode [[The Menagerie (Episode)|"The Menagerie, Part I"]] further establishes that [[Spock]] served under Captain [[Pike, Christopher|Pike]] for 11 years, and that it had been 13 years since the events of [[The Cage (Episode)|"The Cage,"]] meaning that [[Stardate]] [[Chronology: 2267#3012|3012.4]] fell two years into Kirk's command. The episode [[Charlie X (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:

Prev: 2268
Next: 2270
Stardate 4636 through 5635
Reference Stardate 2/0100 through 2/0112

January

February

March

  • Stardate 4842.6 (approx. 16 March): A mysterious alien device on a planet with a predominantly Native American culture erases Captain Kirk's memory, and he begins a life with them as a member of their tribe.[8]

April

  • Stardate 7662.4/Reference Stardate 2/1104: The Enterprise is ordered to assist and recover vital data from the Hood, which has become trapped in the interphase. The crew of the Enterprise is able to retrieve the needed information, but the Hood eventually disappears due to the interphase disturbance created by the presence of the Enterprise. Intelligence reports later verify that the interphase phenomenon is useless as a weapon.[1][2]
  • Stardate Unknown: (VAN #8)

May

June

  • Stardate 5121.5 (approx. 26 June): While visiting a doomed planet, an Enterprise landing party is subject to torturous experiments to test an empathic race.[13]
  • Reference Stardate 2/1004: Despite intense examination by the best minds in the Federation, the Romulan cloaking device remains a mystery. Nevertheless, political pressures force Starfleet to make a public demonstration of the stolen device. It is installed on a Federation ship, and dignitaries from all over the Federation fill both that ship and the vessel observing the experiment. When the cloaking device is activated, both ships disappear. Seconds later, there is a gigantic explosion, and neither ship ever reappears. Scientists stop all attempts to duplicate the cloaking device. Federation Council members who advocated a harder position against the Romulans, and who gained in stature because of the success of Operation Purloin, lose credibility because of the disaster.[11][2]

September

October

  • Stardate 5423.4 (approx. 14 October): An overpopulated race of aliens abduct Kirk to solve their population problem.[15]
  • Stardate 5431.4 (approx. 17 October): Captain Kirk pursues aliens who have stolen Spock's brain.[16]

November

  • Stardate 5476.3 (approx. 2 November): As Dr. McCoy discovers he is dying of an incurable disease, the crew of the Enterprise rush to stop an asteroid from colliding with a Federation world, only to discover that the asteroid is, in fact, a disguised alien vessel. They find an entire civilization living in the ship who believe they are actually on a planet, and a dictatorial "Oracle" who forbids any attempt to discover the truth.[17]

December

  • Stardate 5630.7 (approx. 29 December): The Enterprise transports an alien ambassador who must travel inside a special case, because his appearance causes insanity.[19]
  • Stardate 5221.3: While exploring on the outermost rim of the galaxy, the Enterprise is pulled into the orbit of a dead star. Trapped there, the crew discovers that there is an ancient derelict pod ship trapped with them as well.[20]
  • Stardate 5373.4: Spock must travel to the past to rescue his younger self from danger.[21]
  • Stardate 5371.3: The Enterprise encounters a giant cloud creature that feeds on the energy of the planets that lie in its path. They determine it is heading for Mantilles, home to a Federation colony governed by former Starfleet officer Bob Wesley.[22]
  • Stardate 5143.3 (25 December): Patrolling near the Romulan Neutral Zone, the Enterprise finds a ship manned by Carter Winston, a Federation citizen and philanthropist who has been missing for five years.[23]

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 episodes have been retained.
