As I have commented elsewhere, I have noticed that is is accepted that ''Voyager'' returned home in 2377. Where is this mentioned - as in [[Homestead]], Neelix commented that they were celibrating the 315th anniversary of First Contact - wouldn't that place the year as 2378?
 
   
: This seems consistant with the Star Trek website. They seem to imply that Endgame crosed into 2378.

Being we do not know specifically that these representative members are specifically Humans or Vulcans, shouldn't we refer to them as just being [[humanoid|human''oid'']] and [[vulcanoid|vulcan''oid'']]? I did this some time back with the [[Unnamed_USS_Voyager_personnel#Vulcanoid_Nurse|vulcanoid nurse]], and before I make the sweeping changes I want to make sure nobody disagrees significantly.
   
:Voyager's Season 1 was in [[2371]. Add seven years to that (seven seasons), and you get [[2378]] indeed. You reference to the 315th birthday of First Contact is good evidence. [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 12:59, 6 Jul 2004 (CEST)

Simply put, the [[Human]]s listed could conceivably be [[Edo]], [[Iotian]], [[Capellan]], [[Takarian]], [[Mari]], or any number of ''very'' Human looking species. And we are know that there are several vulcanoid species that we ''are'' aware of, and possibly even others that we aren't. Shouldn't we err on the side of the unknown and just state what we know? — '''[[User:pd_THOR|<span style="color:#CC0000;">THOR</span>]]''' <sup>[[User_talk:pd_THOR|<span style="color:#FF9933;">''=/\=''</span>]]</sup> 21:20, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
 
::Surely it goes like this (remembering that four season two episodes were produced for season one and have season one Stardates, they aired correctly in the UK) - Season 1 - mid-2371, Season 2 - 2372, Season 3 - 2373, Season 4 - 2374, Season 5 - 2375, Season 6 - 2376, Season 7 - 2377. Voyager still follows the TNG/DS9 convention of having the second digit in the stardate increase by 1 every year, and the stardate for Endgame was 54973.4, which is a 2374 Stardate.

:: [[2377]] stardate actually but I see what you mean. Of course it's possible that the events of Endgame cross over into the 55000 stardates, thereby starting another year. The fact that the anniversary is mentioned in Homestead is difficult but perhaps not impossible to rectify.
 
 
:::Or that Series 1 was 2371-2372, S2 was 2372-2373...S7 would be 2377-2378. And the idea that the digits changed every season doesn't necessarily mean the year changes every year at that point, we should all know that stardates aren't consistant!

==novelization information==
 
Separate question: The novelisation and script of [[Caretaker (episode)|Caretaker]] refer to the deceased doctor as Fitzgerald. Should this be taken as canon and referenced in the crew roster?
 
 
:Please state your name for the reccord. ;) No, I don't think that's really canon. Even the novelization of The Motion Picture (written by Roddenberry himself, how more canon do you want it?) isn't regarded as "canon". [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 17:25, 6 Jul 2004 (CEST)
 
 
::I'd be inclined to recognize a source by Roddenberry, however. But the Caretaker novelization was done early in the series, by a writer not associated with Paramount, working for a licensed source ([[Pocket Books]])). This means that it is not acceptable canon (expecially since there is evidence in the "Imperfection" casualty list that the doctor and engineer might have different names. However, information like that can still be collected, and referenced in a clearly marked "Background" section. It is presented in this way as necessitated by the site canon policy -- [[User:Captainmike|Captain Mike K. Bartel]] 06:06, 7 Jul 2004 (CEST)

Being we do not know specifically that these representative members are specifically Humans or Vulcans, shouldn't we refer to them as just being humanoid and vulcanoid? I did this some time back with the vulcanoid nurse, and before I make the sweeping changes I want to make sure nobody disagrees significantly.

Simply put, the Humans listed could conceivably be Edo, Iotian, Capellan, Takarian, Mari, or any number of very Human looking species. And we are know that there are several vulcanoid species that we are aware of, and possibly even others that we aren't. Shouldn't we err on the side of the unknown and just state what we know? — THOR =/\= 21:20, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
