2372: S.D. 485z0 to 495y5
Table of Contents

Sometime this year, Julian Bashir visits his parents, two years before DS9 “Doctor Bashir, I Presume” (January 2374).

Two years before DS9 “A Simple Investigation” (January 2374), “Arissa” the Idanian agent goes undercover with a new personality.

Ezri Dax visits home for the last time before DS9 “Prodigal Daughter”, three years later (December 2375).

January 2372: S.D. 485z0 to 486c0

Two years before DS9 “In Purgatory’s Shadow”, which I have in December 2373, and DS9 “Soldiers of the Empire” (March 2374), Martok is captured and put in a Dominion prison camp. He was out hunting sabre bear on Kang’s Summit at the time. My dates aren’t exactly helpful, but I’ve stuck this in early 2372.

Captain Picard’s brother and the little nephew that we saw in TNG “Family” are burned to death in a fire, just before “Star Trek: Generations”.
Comment: All the scientific advances in “Star Trek” just seem to have passed France by. Surely the emergency services on future Earth will have the same transporters and fire-suppressing tractor fields and stuff that Starfleet has?

DS9 “Visionary”

Oneday 7th to Threeday 9th Onemonth, 9399 B.E.; Friday 7th to Sunday 9th January, 2372: S.D. 485z6 to 485z8

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: I’ve used the “out of nowhere” S.D. 48576.7 to place the story.
Continuity: The real O’Brien died? So who’s that Irish engineer, then? The dartboard moves from a cargo hold into Quark’s.

VOY “Ex Post Facto”

Friday 7th to Thursday 13th January, 2372: S.D. 485z6 to 486a2

Estimated duration: A week
Chronology: It’s all tied to Tom Paris’ 14 hour cycle of punishment. I make it that he goes through the implanted memory 4 times, one of which we don’t see. The murderer is unmasked 9 hours after the 4th time (a total of 51 hours), and Paris thanks Tuvok that same evening. The first four days of the story are seen only in flashback. I’ve used the “out of nowhere” S.D. 48610.1 to help place the story.

DS9 “Distant Voices”

Sixday 12th to Oneday 14th Onemonth, 9399 B.E.; Thursday 13th to Saturday 15th January, 2372: S.D. 486a2 to 486a4

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: There’s an “out of nowhere” date S.D. 48592.2. Things got a bit crowded, so I haven’t used it.
Continuity: It’s Bashir’s thirtieth birthday on the third day, Saturday 15th January, 2372: S.D. 48614. Bashir and Garak seem to be getting together more than once a week, since the story begins and ends with a lunch date. Perhaps it’s a birthday celebration.
Comment: Despite having a good old rummage in the deeper recesses of Julian Bashir’s psyche, this story fails to uncover his deepest, darkest secret.

DS9 “Through the Looking Glass”

Threeday 16th to Fiveday 18th Onemonth, 9399 B.E.; Monday 17th to Wednesday 19th January, 2372: S.D. 486a6 to 486a8

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: I wasn’t able to place this story by “out of nowhere” S.D. 48601.9. Things got too crowded.
Continuity: It’s a year since DS9 “Crossover” (May 2371). I make it a rather short year, since I have it eight months ago.

DS9 “Improbable Cause”

Sevenday 20th to Twoday 22nd Onemonth, 9399 B.E.; Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd January, 2372: S.D. 486b0 to 486b2

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: There’s an “out of nowhere” S.D. 48620.3. I’ve tried to accommodate it.

Saturday 22nd January, 2372: S.D. 486b1

On S.D. 48671, Seska sabotages Tuvok’s holonovel, creating all kinds of problems in VOY “Worst Case Scenario”. It’s supposed to be a month before Seska leaves the ship. To avoid a stardate fail, I arbitrarily decided that a fortnight and the fact that she doesn’t go until February is near enough as does it.

“Star Trek: Generations”

Saturday 22nd January to Thursday 10th February, 2372: S.D. 486b1 to 486d0

Estimated duration: 20 days.
Chronology: There’s a stardate for what I think is the second day, S.D. 48632.4, and another for the twentieth day, S.D. 48650.1. Most of what we see happens in the first four days, and then there must be a long wait to be rescued.
Continuity: Worf is promoted to lieutenant commander on the first day, Sunday 23rd January, 2371: S.D. 48631. Data installs his emotion chip. It’s 78 years (78.2, to be precise) since the launch of the Enterprise-B. James Kirk dies. I’ve made it just under seven and a half years since TNG “Encounter at Farpoint” (August 2364), and that matches the seven years mentioned, if you’re kind.
Comment: Remember that incredibly ancient and valuable Kurlan naiskos that Picard went wild over in TNG “The Chase”? He literally chucks it away.

VOY “Emanations”

Monday 24th to Friday 28th January, 2372: S.D. 486b3 to 486b7

Estimated duration: Five days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for the first day, S.D. 48623.5. Everything we see happens on the first two days, but then Harry Kim is ordered to take another two days off to recover. I’m guessing that he’s back to work on the fifth day.
Continuity: Voyager discovers the 247th element known to Federation science. (The list currently stands at 118.) Its mass is over 500 (we’re currently at 294).

VOY “Prime Factors”

Wednesday 2nd to Friday 4th February, 2372: S.D. 486c2 to 486c4

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for the first day, S.D. 48642.5.

DS9 “The Die is Cast”

Fourday 31st to Sevenday 34th Onemonth, 9399 B.E.; Wednesday 2nd to Saturday 5th February, 2372: S.D. 486c2 to 486c5

Estimated duration: 4 days
Chronology: I’ve guessed at four days, but it could really be any number you care to pick. There’s an “out of nowhere” S.D. 48622.5 that I’ve used to help in placing the story.
Continuity: The story opens a week after DS9 “Improbable Cause” (despite what the “out of nowhere” dates suggest). I haven’t tried to be too accurate about it, and ended up with it being a longer gap. Enabran Tain is captured by the Dominion.

VOY “State of Flux”

Monday 7th to Thursday 10th February, 2372: S.D. 486c7 to 486d0

Estimated duration: 4 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for what I think is the second day, S.D. 48658.2. VOY “The Voyager Conspiracy” is wrong. This isn’t the day Seska is unmasked as a Cardassian spy. I don’t think it’s until the day after that the EMH works it out. Seska escapes on the fourth day.
Continuity: Seska’s supposed to leave a month after S.D. 48671: Saturday 22nd January, 2372. I’ve only been able to manage about a fortnight, but I have reached the next month.

DS9 “Explorers”

Twoday 36th to Sevenday 55th Onemonth, 9399 B.E.; Tuesday 8th to Monday 28th February, 2371: S.D. 486c8 to 487x8

Estimated duration: Three weeks
Chronology: The story takes around three weeks. There’s an “out of nowhere” S.D. 48699.9, but there’s too much else going on just now for me to really use it.
Continuity: Jake tries to interest Benjamin Sisko in a date with Kassidy Yates.

VOY “Heroes and Demons”

Sunday 13th to Sunday 20th February, 2372: S.D. 486d3 to 487x0

Estimated duration: 8 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for the first day, S.D. 48693.2, and one that could be for the eighteenth day. Since I found that the story seemed to last about three days as far as I could see, I stretched it to eight rather than eighteen days, S.D. 48710.5 being the second stardate, on the last day.

Tuesday 22nd February, 2372: S.D. 487x2

In the alternate events of VOY “Non Sequitur”, Tom Paris is paroled from the living hell that is 24th century New Zealand on S.D. 48702.

Tuesday 29th February to Saturday 4th March, 2372: S.D. 487x9 to 487y3

Just before VOY “Cathexis”, Tuvok and Chakotay go on a trade mission to the Ilidarians.

March 2372: S.D. 487y0 to 488b0

Three years and two months before DS9 “The Sound of Her Voice” (May 2375), Lisa Cusak dies.

DS9 “Family Business”

Threeday 3rd to Sixday 6th Twomonth, 9399 B.E.; Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th March, 2372: S.D. 487y1 to 487y4

Estimated duration: 4 days
Chronology: I’ve used the “out of nowhere” S.D. 48731.2 to place the story.
Continuity: We get to meet Quark and Rom’s Moogie. A new runabout, Rubicon arrives. Benjamin Sisko goes on his first date with Kassidy Yates, I think on the third day.

VOY “Cathexis”

Sunday 5th to Monday 6th March, 2372: S.D. 487y4 to 487y5

Estimated duration: 2 days
Chronology: There are stardates for both days, S.D. 48734.2 and S.D. 48735.9.
Continuity: Captain Janeway tries relaxing with a holonovel.
Comment: The holonovel seems to be the 24th century equivalent of a Silhouette Sensation.

VOY “Faces”

Monday 13th to Thursday 16th March, 2372: S.D. 487z2 to 487z5

Estimated duration: 4 days
Chronology: The survey of the Avery system lasts two days, meaning that the stardate is for the third day, S.D. 48784.2.

DS9 “Shakaar”

Oneday 15th to Sevenday 28th Twomonth, 9399 B.E.; Wednesday 15th to Wednesday 29th March, 2372: S.D. 487z4 to 488a8

Estimated duration: 15 days
Chronology: The internal evidence is that the story takes at least two weeks. I’ve made it two Bajoran weeks, to be on the safe side. I’ve used the “out of nowhere” S.D. 48764.8 as an aid in placing this story.
Continuity: It’s three months since DS9 “Life Support” (December 2371). Sometime after this, Shakaar is elected as First Minister.

VOY “Jetrel”

Wednesday 22nd to Friday 31st March, 2372: S.D. 488a1 to 488b0

Estimated duration: 10 days
Chronology: There are stardates for what I think is the second day, S.D. 48832.1 and the tenth day, S.D. 48840.5.

April 2372: S.D. 488b1 to 489a0

Assuming events in VOY “Non Sequitur” (June 2372) reflect what actually happens, the memorial service for Voyager will be held two months before that story. It does seem a bit quick off the mark though, because according to VOY “Message in a Bottle”, the ship won’t be declared officially lost until fourteen months before that story (November 2374, although it’s out of sequence not incorrectly placed by stardate), which I make September 2373!

VOY “Learning Curve”

Thursday 6th to Wednesday 19th April, 2372: S.D. 488b6 to 488c9

Estimated duration: 2 weeks
Chronology: There are stardates for the first day, S.D. 48846.5 and the fourteenth S.D. 48859.3.
Comment: This story confirms all my worst suspicions about the dangers of cheese.

DS9 “Facets”

Sevenday 42nd to Threeday 45th Twomonth, 9399 B.E.; Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th April, 2372: S.D. 488c3 to 488c6

Estimated duration: 4 days
Continuity: Nog passes his exams to get into the Academy.

21:00 on Friday 21st April, 2372: S.D. 488d1.8

All Voyager’s escape pods are launched, the day before VOY “Projections”.

VOY “Projections”

Saturday 22nd April, 2372: S.D. 488d2

Estimated duration: 1 day
Chronology: There’s a stardate, S.D. 48892.1, although everything turns out to have been some sort of holodream.

VOY “Elogium”

Tuesday 9th to Thursday 11th May, 2372: S.D. 489a9 to 489b1

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate on what I think is the third day, S.D. 48921.3.
Continuity: Kes isn’t two yet. Ensign Wildman finally plucks up the courage to tell Captain Janeway she’s pregnant. Wildman says she’s only known for “a few days,” but VOY “Fury” suggests that she really means “six months.”

DS9 “The Adversary”

Threeday 11th to Oneday 16th Threemonth, 9399 B.E.; Tuesday 9th to Sunday 14th May, 2372: S.D. 489a9 to 489b4

Estimated duration: 6 days
Chronology: There are stardates for the first day, S.D. 48959.1, the second day, S.D. 48960.9 and the fourth day, S.D. 48962.5.
Continuity: Benjamin Sisko is promoted to captain on the first day. It’s supposed to be a month before Kassidy Yates gets back. I have it being about two weeks, but the stardates weren’t very helpful.

VOY “Twisted”

Monday 15th May, 2372: S.D. 489b5

Estimated duration: 1 day
Chronology: There’s an “out of nowhere” date, S.D. 48945.8, that I’ve tried to accommodate. It seems a good point to mention that the dates here reflect the production order of the stories, not the broadcast order. This stardate does reflect the sequence in the stardated episodes, so I used it.
Continuity: It’s Kes’ second birthday, today. Although it seems unlikely that the years used by the Ocampans and the years on Earth are exactly identical, the least-worst option I could come up with is that they’re of remarkably similar lengths.

DS9 “The Way of the Warrior”

Twoday 31st to Oneday 51st Threemonth, 9399 B.E.; Tuesday 30th May to Tuesday 20th June, 2372; 21st to 42nd QuSten, 997 Q.B.: S.D. 489d0 to 490b1

Estimated duration: 22 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for the last day, S.D. 49011.4. Since Kassidy is away for two weeks during the story, it must last longer than that, by several days.
Continuity: I think Worf arrives on the station on the fifth day. He’s been taking leave on Boreth since “Star Trek: Generations”. Julian Bashir is promoted to full lieutenant, and Dax is made lieutenant commander. The Klingons declare war on the Cardassians.
Comment: I was not impressed at how a handful of defenders were able to fight off the premier warriors of our part of the galaxy. It made the Klingons look like useless clowns, to be quite honest.

Late May or early June, 2372

Leskit begins his service on the Cardassian border, assuming he’s only been there since the outbreak of war. DS9 “Soldiers of the Empire”.

VOY “The 37’s”

Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th June, 2372: S.D. 489d3 to 489d5

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for what I think is the third day, S.D. 48975.1.
Continuity: The date is established as 2371, so I’ve pretty comprehensively missed that reference point. This has to be the last shore leave Janeway takes before VOY “Persistence of Vision”, but I have it a month later, not two months from now.

VOY “Initiations”

Wednesday 14th to Thursday 15th June, 2372: S.D. 490a5 to 490a6

Estimated duration: 2 days
Chronology: There is a stardate for the first day, S.D. 49005.3.
Continuity: The first day is the anniversary of Kolopak’s death. The most likely date is Monday 14th June, 2371: S.D. 47999, but it isn’t absolutely stated that it’s the first anniversary, just implied.

VOY “Non Sequitur”

Tuesday 20th June, 2372: S.D. 490b1

Estimated duration: 1 day
Chronology: There’s a stardate, S.D. 49011.0. Although events seem to take about three days in the alternate universe, none of it really happened in the end.
Continuity: There are some very prominent signs for the San Francisco Mission District “Old Town Festival” on 14th August. If that’s 2371, then the signs have been up for a long time. I’ve assumed that it’s August 2372, and the signs are up well beforehand. Unfortunately, it looks as though the festival (“Festival! Festival!”) is supposed to be on at the time of the story, and I’ve definitely not managed that.

VOY “Parturition”

Tuesday 27th to Wednesday 28th June, 2372: S.D. 490b8 to 490b9

Estimated duration: 2 days
Chronology:It’s after VOY “Twisted”, because Kes is two years old. S.D. 49068.5 is in the shooting script. I’ve sort of accommodated it, but it doesn’t appear in the final story.
Continuity: Sometime in the previous fortnight Harry Kim has replicated himself a clarinet.

DS9 “The Visitor”

Sixday 9th Fourmonth, 9399 B.E.; Monday 3rd July, 2372: S.D. 490c4

Estimated duration: A day
Chronology: At the end of the story Ben Sisko stops pinging about in time, and nothing happens except the original accident. There’s an “out of nowhere” S.D. 49034.7 that I’ve used to place the story.
Continuity: Jake says he’s eighteen. I can’t make him more than seventeen at this point. It’s five years since Jennifer Sisko died, which I’ve managed almost exactly.
Comment: For everyone except Ben and Jake Sisko, this version of the future seems considerably more benign than what actually happens. Luckily, nobody (except possibly Ben) will remember any of it.

VOY “Persistence of Vision”

Sunday 16th to Tuesday 18th July, 2372: S.D. 490d7 to 490d9

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: I’ve tried to accommodate the “out of nowhere” S.D. 49037.2.
Continuity: It’s two months since Janeway’s last shore leave (unfortunately, I think that was VOY “The 37’s”, so that’s only one month by my calculations). She decides to take a break from her holonovel.

DS9 “Hippocratic Oath”

Threeday 20th to Sevenday 24th Fourmonth, 9399 B.E.; Saturday 15th to Wednesday 19th July, 2372: S.D. 490d6 to 491a0

Estimated duration: 5 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for the first day, S.D. 49066.5. The internal evidence is that the story lasts five days.
Continuity: The last day of the story is Bashir and O’Brien’s darts night. I’m not sure how regular that is.

VOY “Tattoo”

Thursday 20th to Wednesday 26th July, 2372: S.D. 491a1 to 491a7

Estimated duration: A week
Chronology: I’ve placed this story with reference to “out of nowhere” S.D. 49101.3.
Continuity: The crew of Voyager meet the Sky Spirits, another alien race that likes interfering with human development.

DS9 “Indiscretion”

Fourday 35th to Oneday 39th Fourmonth, 9399 B.E.; Monday 31st July to Friday 4th August, 2372: S.D. 491b2 to 491b6

Estimated duration: 5 days
Chronology: There’s an “out of nowhere” S.D. 49122.4 that I’ve tried to use.
Continuity: Kasidy Yates moves onto the station at the end of the story. It’s supposed to be just under six months before DS9 “For the Cause” (April 2373). I can’t get anywhere even close. Michael Eddington seems to begin his Maquis activities about now. Dukat is reunited with his daughter, Tora Ziyal. The first day is the weekly security meeting.

Around July 2372

Tom Paris begins an unsuccessful pursuit of Susan Nicoletti, six months before VOY “The Thaw” (January 2373).

Monday 14th August, 2372: S.D. 491c6

According to VOY “Non Sequitur”, it’s the San Francisco Mission District “Old Town Festival.” The signs must have gone up very well in advance, at least by my calculations.

Around 15:40 on Friday 18th August, 2372: S.D. 491d0

On S.D. 49170.65, a bomb goes off at a high-level meeting between the Federation and the Romulans in Antwerp, as seen in DS9 “Homefront”. I’m sure this seems far too early, but it’s the stardate on the display screen. I’m assuming the action has been “telescoped” since it means Admiral Leighton has more time to set up his coup. It’s equally possible that the date’s wrong.

DS9 “Rejoined”

Oneday 53rd Fourmonth to Sevenday 4th Fivemonth, 9399 B.E.; Sunday 20th to Saturday 26th August, 2372: S.D. 491d2 to 491d8

Estimated duration: A week
Chronology: There’s a stardate, I think for the fourth day, S.D. 49195.5.

VOY “Cold Fire”

Monday 21st to Wednesday 23rd August, 2372: S.D. 491d3 to 491d5

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: S.D. 49164.8 is in the shooting script, but not the final story. I’ve sort of accommodated it.
Continuity: It’s ten months after VOY “Caretaker” (October 2371).

DS9 “Little Green Men”

Threeday 7th to Twoday 13th Fivemonth, 9399 B.E.; Tuesday 29th August to Monday 4th September, 2372: S.D. 492a1 to 492a7

Estimated duration: A week
Chronology: There’s an “out of nowhere” S.D. 49201.3 that I’ve used in placing the story.
Continuity: The main part of the story happens in 1947. It’s a month before DS9 “Homefront” (in October 2372 according to my timeline; it’s the match between days of the month and stardates that this date fails on). Nog starts at the Academy. It’s supposed to be a year before DS9 “The Ascent” (October 2373). I make it a long year.

VOY “Maneuvers”

Monday 4th to Friday 8th September, 2372: S.D. 492a6 to 492b1

Estimated duration: 5 days
Chronology: There are stardates for the second day, S.D. 49208.5 and the fifth day, S.D. 49211.5.
Continuity: It’s still supposed to be ten months since VOY “Caretaker” (October 2371), but I don’t see how it can be, this long after VOY “Cold Fire” (August 2372), so I think it’s eleven, although I might call it “ten months and three weeks,” if I was tempted to push things. Seska gets a sample of Chakotay’s spinal fluid. It’ll be a plot point later on.

VOY “Resistance”

Sunday 10th to Monday 11th September, 2372: S.D. 492b3 to 492b4

Estimated duration: 2 days
Chronology: I’ve tried to accommodate the “out of nowhere” S.D. 49234.1.

DS9 “Starship Down”

Sevenday 18th to Threeday 21st Fivemonth, 9399 B.E.; Sunday 10th to Wednesday 13th September, 2372: S.D. 492b3 to 492b6

Estimated duration: 4 days
Chronology: There is a stardate for the first day, S.D. 49263.5.
Continuity: The first day is Ha’mara, the Bajoran anniversary of Sisko’s Arrival in DS9 “Emissary”; I’ve based my interpretation of the Bajoran calendar on it, so it is. There’s a Festival of Lights the night before on Bajor. A four-shift working pattern is introduced on the station.

VOY “Prototype”

Sunday 17th to Friday 22nd September, 2372: S.D. 492c0 to 492c5

Estimated duration: 6 days
Chronology: I’ve placed the story with the aid of the “out of nowhere” S.D. 49270.9.

Around Saturday 24th September, 2372: S.D. 492c7

A month before VOY “Threshold”, Voyager finds some extra-spiffy dilithium on an asteroid.

Around Thursday 28th September, 2372: S.D. 492d1

Two weeks before VOY “Alliances”, The Kazon make the first of three attacks before that story starts.
Comment: It’s very coincidental that none of the attacks happen during VOY “Death Wish”, but I didn’t have enough days.

DS9 “The Sword of Kahless”

Oneday 33rd to Sevenday 39th Fivemonth, 9399 B.E.; Tuesday 26th September to Monday 2nd October, 2372; 37th to 43rd jo’voS, 998 Q.B.: S.D. 492c9 to 492d5

Estimated duration: A week
Chronology: The story lasts at least five days, so I’ve given it a week. The placing is influenced by the “out of nowhere” S.D. 49289.1.

Around jo’voS, 998 Q.B. ; Approximately September 2372

Kurn sends his last message to Worf, four months before DS9 “Sons of Mogh” (January 2373).

VOY “Death Wish”

Friday 6th to Thursday 8th October, 2372: S.D. 492d9 to 493x1

Estimated duration: 3 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for what I’ve called the third day, S.D. 49301.2.
Continuity: More shenanigans with the Q Continuum.

DS9 “Our Man Bashir”

Fourday 43rd Fivemonth, 9399 B.E.; Saturday 7th October, 2372: S.D. 493x0

Estimated duration: A day
Chronology: The stardate S.D. 49300.7 has been assigned to this story (can you spot why?) although it doesn’t appear in it.
Continuity: At least at this point, Bashir and Garak meet for their weekly lunch on this day.

VOY “Alliances”

Thursday 12th to Thursday 19th October, 2372: S.D. 493x5 to 493y2

Estimated duration: 8 days
Chronology: There are stardates for what I think is the third day, S.D. 49337.4 and the eighth day, S.D. 49342.5.

DS9 “Homefront”

Threeday 49th Fivemonth, 9399 to Sixday 4th Onemonth, 9400 B.E.; Friday 13th to Tuesday 24th October, 2372: S.D. 493x6 to 493y7

Estimated duration: 12 days, because the stardates crash head first into actual Earth dates and this is the least terrible option.
Chronology: Although it appears that Sisko and Odo head off for Earth almost immediately after the Antwerp bomb, I’ve left the longer gap implied by the stardates (even though this story is a complete fail in any stardating sense), not least because it gives Admiral Leighton longer to plan his coup. We can be certain that the last day of the story is the 24th of the month, and the suggested stardate is S.D. 49334.53, corresponding to around 22:47 on the 23rd in San Francisco. This is where I come totally unstuck.
Date My Calculated Stardate Event
17:00 on Sunday 23rd October, 2372 (San Francisco) 49337.0 Red Squad assemble
04:00 on Monday 24th October, 2372 (Lisbon) 49337.0 Power cut
19:21 on Sunday 23rd October, 2372 (San Francisco) 49337.0 State of Emergency
19:47 on Sunday 23rd October, 2372 (San Francisco) 49337.11 Red Squad Return
22:47 on Sunday 23rd October, 2372 (San Francisco) 49337.24 Message sent

Continuity: It’s a month since DS9 “Little Green Men”. Since I think that story finishes in early September 2372, it’s something that works.
Comment: Portugal has changed time zones since this story was made. All the time equivalences worked then, but they don’t now. Obviously, things must get changed back. Unfortunately, Daylight Saving Time arrangements aren’t very helpful for me either. Maybe they don’t make it to the 24th century as well. At the end, it’s strongly implied that there are Starfleet squads patrolling every major city on Earth. That’s a LOT of Starfleet officers.

Twoday 55th Fivemonth, 9399 to Threeday 1st Onemonth, 9400 B.E.; Thursday 19th to Friday 20th October, 2372: S.D. 493y3 to 493y4

According to my calculations, it’ll be the Gratitude Festival on Bajor, fortunately at a time we don’t see.

VOY “Threshold”

Tuesday 24th October to Tuesday 2nd November, 2372: S.D. 493y7 to 493z6

Estimated duration: 10 days
Chronology: I’ve assumed that the stardate is a week in, S.D. 49373.4, with a further three days in sickbay to recover afterwards.
Comment: WARP DRIVE IS EVIL! IT’LL TURN YOU INTO A NEWT!

DS9 “Paradise Lost”

Twoday 7th to Sixday 25th Onemonth, 9400 B.E.; Friday 27th October to Wednesday 15th November, 2372: S.D. 493z0 to 494a9

Estimated duration: 20 days
Chronology: The story starts four days after the power outage, and it is strongly suggested that S.D. 49364 corresponds to the 14th of the month. I get it to be nothing like that, 49418. DS9 “When It Rains…” is quite clear that Odo is infected with the Changeling Lurgy at Starfleet Medical on Earth on S.D. 49419, which I have as the day after that, Wednesday 15th November, 2372. I’ve used the last date, because it sort of gets things back on track. A bit. Okay, a very small bit.

Around maqtaH, 998 Q.B.; Approximately October 2372

The Klingons begin planting fake data in their computers to mislead infiltrators, three months before DS9 “Sons of Mogh” (January 2373).

VOY “Meld”

Sunday 5th to Wednesday 8th November, 2372: S.D. 493z9 to 494a2

Estimated duration: 4 days
Chronology: There’s an “out of nowhere” S.D. 49380.5, that I’ve sort of used.
Continuity: It’s two weeks to the Vulcan festival of Kal Rekk.

VOY “Dreadnought”

Sunday 12th to Monday 13th November, 2372: S.D. 494a6 to 494a7

Estimated duration: 2 days
Chronology: There is a stardate for the second day, S.D. 49447.
Continuity: It’s two years since B’Elenna last worked on the missile. I have that in late December 2370 which seems to work.

VOY “Lifesigns”

Friday 17th November to Saturday 9th December, 2372: S.D. 494b1 to 494d3

Actual stardates: Sunday 17th December, 2372 to Monday 8th January, 2373: S.D. 495x1 to 495z3

Estimated duration: 23 days
Chronology: The internal evidence is that the story lasts twenty-three days, since it will take a quite incredible twenty-two days to travel ten light-years. At that blistering speed, Voyager will only be able to travel 11,622 light-years in seventy years, rather than the 70,000 needed to get home. We only seem to see the first week, though. There are stardates for what I’ve calculated are the fourth day, S.D. 49504.3 and the seventh day, S.D. 49507.2. Unfortunately, the continuity of “Star Trek: Voyager” is a bit complicated at this point, and I had to ignore them.
Continuity: Tom Paris was dumped by Susie Crabtree in his first year at the Academy.

Around Monday 20th November, 2372; About 10th Khuti, 8992 V.E.: S.D. 494b4

Two weeks after VOY “Meld”, it’s the Vulcan festival of Kal Rekk.

Sixday 32nd Onemonth, 9400 B.E.; Thursday 23rd November, 2372: S.D. 494b7

The least implausible candidate for the Thanksgiving Eddington reminisces about in DS9 “Blaze of Glory” (April 2374). He says it was “last year.” I don’t, really.

Saturday 25th November, 2372: S.D. 494b9

Launch of USS Valiant on S.D. 49439, according to the Bridge dedication plaque in DS9 “Valiant”.

Around Oneday 34th Onemonth, 9400 B.E.; Approximately Saturday 25th November, 2372: S.D. 494b9

I was going to say this was my best guess, but it’s more a final cry of desperation: Is this when Kirayoshi O’Brien was conceived? It’s two months before DS9 “Accession” (January 2373).

Around maqtaH, 998 Q.B.; About November 2372

A Klingon transport crashes in the mountains of Galorda Prime, three months before DS9 “Rules of Engagement” (February 2373). The tragic incident is later used to try and frame Worf.

DS9 “Crossfire”

Threeday 43rd to Fiveday 52nd Onemonth, 9400 B.E.; Tuesday 5th to Thursday 14th December, 2372: S.D. 494c9 to 494d8

Estimated duration: A week and three days
Chronology: Based on the security meetings, the story lasts about ten days. I’ve tried to make it work in the Earth calendar, as well as the Bajoran one, based on the reference to “Tuesday”. A Bajoran calendar version of the story will be a little longer, and may not actually start on a Tuesday. there’s an “out of nowhere” date, S.D. 49517.3, but I couldn’t fit it to the days of the week and I’ve not used it.
Continuity: Odo and Kira have weekly security meetings on Tuesdays (or the Bajoran equivalent), although Odo abandons them after this story. Major Kira scores with Shakaar.

Monday 18th December, 2372: S.D. 495x2

According to VOY “The Voyager Conspiracy”, Chakotay recommends trade relations with an otherwise unmentioned race called the Kolhari on S.D. 49522.
Comment: I would have problems accommodating this date with the “official” ones for VOY “Lifesigns”, and wouldn’t want to seem to be concealing that fact.

Around Twoday 1st Twomonth, 9400 B.E.; Tuesday 19th December, 2372: S.D. 495x3

Three weeks before DS9 “Bar Association”, Rom gets a nasty ear infection.

DS9 “Return to Grace”

Threeday 2nd to Sevenday 6th Twomonth, 9400 B.E.; Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th December, 2372: S.D. 495x4 to 495x8

Estimated duration: 5 days
Chronology: There’s an “out of nowhere” S.D. 49534.2 that I’ve tried to use.
Continuity: Tora Ziyal moves onto the station for a while. Gul Dukat goes off to be a sort of Cardassian Che Guevara, battling the Klingons single-handed.

VOY “Investigations”

Tuesday 26th December, 2372 to Tuesday 2nd January, 2373: S.D. 495y0 to 495y7

Actual dates: Wednesday 6th to Wednesday 13th December, 2372: S.D. 494d0 to 494d7

Estimated duration: 8 days
Chronology: On the assumption that Neelix’s broadcasts aren’t absolutely every day, there’s a stardate for what I think is the sixth day, S.D. 49485.2. I’ve had to move the story to accommodate VOY “Lifesigns”.
Continuity: Based on the plotline, this story has to follow VOY “Lifesigns”, regardless of the stardates (even if I could get them all to work). Neelix begins a daily broadcast A Briefing with Neelix on the first day, although I’m not sure it is actually every single day. Obviously it’s a hit, because it’s still going in VOY “Macrocosm”, although the name’s been changed to Good Morning, Voyager. It’s supposed to be a year since Tom Paris joined Voyager. I make it about fourteen months. It’s implied that it might be about a month before VOY “Basics”. That’s just impossible.

DS9 “The Sons of Mogh”

Sixday 12th to Threeday 16th Twomonth, 9400 B.E.; Sunday 31st December, 2372 to Thursday 4th January, 2373: S.D. 495y5 to 495y9

Estimated duration: 5 days
Chronology: There’s a stardate for the second day, S.D. 49556.2.
Continuity: Worf’s brother Kurn has his brain rejigged so that he thinks he’s Rodek of House Noggra.
