|Ten Forward → Pocket Timeline chronology question about Novelizations (Reply | Watch)|
I'm looking to add a more detailed chronology of Where Time Stands Still. It's an eBook with a backstory that takes place immediately after The Time Trap TAS episode. The The Star Trek Fiction Timeline (a.k.a. Pocket Books Timeline) places both of these stories in the year 2270. The Pocket Timeline specifically references the Alan Dean Foster novelization of The Time Trap, not the TAS episode, in its chronology.
The TAS episode, according to a few sources I found, has stardates that place it in 2269. The Pocket Timeline & Alan Dean Foster's novelizations place the TAS stories in 2270, but the episode stardates place The Time Trap in 2269. As it stands right now, Where Time Stands Still is listed on the 2269 year page with both 'episode' and 'novelization' in the information row, even though the two media differ on what year the story took place. Which dates do we choose to use in our articles, or should we separate the novelizations in our chronologies and make a note on the episode article pages and on the chronology year pages?
