Background[edit | edit source]

1979 is the final real-life year that can be directly coordinated with the reference stardate-based year system originated in the ST reference: Spaceflight Chronology, since the Chronology was completed in this year. After this, the events of the Chronology no longer match real-life events or conform to the timeline of canon dates. This wiki's information on data from the SFC reference date system continues on 1980-1999 SFC.
