- In the original Star Trek: The Original Series series the timeline for TOS: "Space Seed" placed the events of the eugenics wars 200 years before the present during the 20th century (1992-1996). 200 years after 1996 is 2196, placing TOS at the end 22nd century originally. This dating was also shared in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, which was set some 15 years after TOS (or approximately 2211). Later timelines shifted The Original Series and Star Trek II to the 23rd century (2267 and 2285). Future sources seem to split the dates of the Eugenics Wars along the 1990s dates and also in the 21st century, utilizing the 200 years before date. The 200 years before date was mistakenly utilized in DS9: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume" (suggesting the wars took place in 2173) when it should have been 300 or 400 years before depending on if the reference was intended to be in the 20th or 21st century (there was talk at the time to move the Eugenics Wars into the 21st century): Menosky: "I heard they were going to point blank, have a statement that said the Eugenics Wars occurred in the 21st century. That was the rumour that was floating through the building. I think that people would have hit the roof if they would have done that, so maybe they just decided to leave it up in nebulous hyperspace. The point is, if they would have gone that route, then you would have had to come up with some theory about how history got screwed up. The records got destroyed, or something messed up the original dates."
