dates of attacks]
- "Transporter Psychosis" first diagnosed by researchers on Delinia II (re).

the crew in stasis. After a 6 month trip, he finds the star was nothing but an EM echo
from a distant galaxy, so he turns around (11:59). [Subspace radio is said to
not have been used. B Cap is a double star (gK0/B) 130 LY from Earth. This would have been
a shade under WF4.]

force fields are
developed. This is based loosely on comments in (ma) and on Tyler's reference that
"they've broken the time barrier" in (Me), and the assumption that this refers
to improvements in warp drive engines. I suspect that the "Transtator" shows up
around here as well.]

lose the spike at the front of the nacelle (TB, WNM/v). Also the exterior
configuration of the Bridge changes, the ship's complement changes from 203 to 430, many
of the interior rooms are altered, and many of the motion activated control systems are
replaced by switches and toggles, (Phased) laser systems are replaced with phasers, and so
on. It can be assumed that this refit took a number of years.]
- 38774 Tuvok is born (according to
age in "Flashback" and probable dating of ST:TUC. However, "Fury"

that his people have been living on the Cardassian Border for some time, so Dorvon may not
be the only Native American colonized world (Tattoo). This would also be about
the time that Chakotay travels with his father, Kolopak, on a search for "The Rubber
People" in Central America (a tribe that has miraculously maintained the same
language for 45,000 years).]
