According to Star Trek Fact Check, de Forest Research had this to say about stardates: – Astronomers already have adopted a method of dating which makes possible the counting of the number of days elapsed between widely separated observations called 'the Julian Day'. A Julian cycle is 7,980 years, and the Julian day measurement would be scientifically authentic. Julian B is meant to be the day count since January 1, 3268, the start of the next 7980-year Julian Period.
According to Kellam de Forest: The original script for the pilot of Star Trek was titled "Menagerie" (sic) and we in the research department, De Forest Research, didn't see it until it was in script form and came to us to review just like any other Desilu script, or any other script from any other client.
They concluded that the 'time continuum' would therefore vary from place to place, and that earth time may actually be lost in travel.T'Pol knew that it was three days in the future, indicating that Vulcans also had an understanding of stardates at that time.() Stardates did not replace clock time or everyday units for expressing larger timespans, such as days, weeks, months, years, centuries, or millennia, and tend not to apply retroactively instead of Gregorian or Julian calendars either.( In addition, Star Trek Fact Check shows a scripted narration from the same draft containing "star date 1312.6".This became "star date 1312.4" by the final revised draft (July 8, 1965), which also asks for "C-1277.1 to 1313.7" to appear on Kirk's gravestone. (Page 65, Scene 175) – We presume dates are in days, Kirk would only be 36 days old. For Kirk’s birth date in Julian system figure would be in millions. On the other hand, the letter "C" and the rate of increase in the script suggest that 1277.1 was intended to be the date Kirk was promoted to captain and/or assumed command of the Enterprise, not his date of birth.
