Stardates

The original series of Star Trek introduced the concept of stardates as a nominal reference to when the events of the episode took place. Without making a judgement on the logic of how these numbers were used the table below documents the logs and dates referred to by episode.

The episodes are listed in their original broadcast sequence. The Time Code column refers to the approximate time in the show when the reference was made.
