Within The Next Generation era, episodes and films are easier to date. Stardates correspond exactly with seasons, with the first two digits of the stardate representing the season number. Okuda assumes the start of a season is January 1 and the end of the season is December Since the Chronology was published, it has been generally adhered to by the producers of the show. In First Contact , Zephram Cochrane is confirmed as having invented warp drive on Earth, but the date is moved forward slightly to , and it is revealed that Earth's official first contact with an alien species, the Vulcans, took place immediately afterwards as a result of this.
The dating of the final season of Star Trek: Voyager has presented controversy. The standard assumption about stardates, as well as the regular correspondence between seasons and in-universe years, would place the entire season in the year —the season begins with stardate However, the episode " Homestead " features a celebration of the th anniversary of Zefram Cochrane 's first contact with the Vulcans , which would set the episode on April 5, The fansite Memory Alpha thus places the final eight episodes of the season " Human Error " through " Endgame " in , with other sources following suit.
Enterprise is set in the s, and ties into the Cochrane backstory. The show uses the Gregorian calendar instead of Stardates, making tracking the dating easier. It shows the opening of the Romulan war and the start of a coalition between Earth, Vulcan, Andor and Tellar in the s. The date of the founding year of the Federation, , was revealed in the fifth-season TNG episode "The Outcast," based on an early draft of the Okuda timeline. The final episode of Enterprise , " These Are the Voyages No version of the Chronology or the Encyclopedia has been published since A book by Jeff Ayers contains a timeline which attempts to date all of the many Star Trek novels.
The official website, StarTrek. When the original series of Star Trek was produced, the s were considered the distant future, and so various elements of the backstory to Star Trek are set in that era, particularly the Eugenics Wars. The references to the Eugenics Wars and to a nuclear war in the 21st century are somewhat contradictory. The episode " Space Seed " establishes the Eugenics Wars, and has them lasting from to The Eugenics Wars are described as a global conflict in which the progeny of a human genetic engineering project, most notably Khan Noonien Singh , established themselves as supermen and attempted world domination.
The Voyager episode " Future's End " saw the Voyager crew time-travel to Los Angeles in , which, as the Encyclopedia notes, seems entirely unaffected by the Eugenics Wars, which ended that year. The episode acknowledges the issue only by featuring a model of Khan's DY -class ship on a desk. According to writer Ronald D. Numerous historical details of the devastating Eugenics Wars are discussed: the death of 35—37 million people; how Earth's governments could not decide on the fate of the 1, genetically enhanced embryos; and how Soong had infiltrated the complex and stolen and raised 19 embryos himself.
Soong maintained that he himself and humanity in general had learned the lessons of the Eugenics Wars and should not continue to hide behind those events when there was progress to be made now that the technology had matured and was much more practicable. The actions of his "children" convince him otherwise, and at the end of "The Augments" Soong declares his interest in cybernetics, beginning the work which would one day bring about Data. Greg Cox 's two-book series The Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh develops the idea of the Eugenics Wars in the context of real-life history by representing it as a secret history , and that the truth behind the various civil wars and conflicts in the s was not generally known; ironically, Los Angeles, whose appearance in "Future's End" helped bring the war's existence into question, is portrayed as an EW "battlefront", the Rodney King riots being one such calamity.
In the episode " Metamorphosis ", it is stated that Zefram Cochrane of Alpha Centauri, the discoverer of the space warp, disappeared years ago, at the age of Given Okuda's date of for that episode, this puts Cochrane's disappearance in and birth in The Icarus then relayed its findings back to Earth, the first prototype warp ship was launched in The Star Trek Chronology does not hold with this theory, and asserts that Cochrane was an Earth native, who moved to Alpha Centauri later in life even in "Metamorphosis", before Cochrane identifying himself to the landing party, Dr.
McCoy had taken a tricorder scan and determined him to be human. The first edition Chronology notes that Cochrane's invention of warp drive must have been at least years before " Where No Man Has Gone Before ", and suggests a date of , noting that Cochrane would be 31 that year. The film is set in , two years after the Chronology suggestions, and therefore by the timeline Cochrane is The actor who played Cochrane in that movie, James Cromwell , was 56 at the time of the film's release.
The Encyclopedia notes the age issue, and claims that the Cromwell Cochrane had suffered from radiation poisoning, causing his aged appearance. Enterprise pins down Cochrane's disappearance to , making Cochrane instead 31 at the time of First Contact. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Episode itself takes place in stardate Pocket Books. Possibly this was a time of change or reform for the Dominion, transforming it from a previous incarnation into the version seen in the series. However the movie itself does state Voyager 6 "was launched more than three hundred years ago.
However, the episode does have Kirk ask "Wasn't there a probe called Nomad launched in the early s? The year is clearly specified by Lt McGivers, ship's historian.

The aliens are justly outraged by human attempts to terraform their worlds. They have assumed this was a pre-meditated attack by humanity against them. The diplomat has been despatched to broker a peace agreement…. The former is no surprise, as Darkseid is the main antagonist of the Jack Kirby-created comic book mythology DuVernay and co-writer Tom King will be drawing from.

In this prequel to the fantasy classic, three young Gelfling inspire a rebellion against the cruel Emperor when they discover a horrifying secret. An artificial intelligence system should be recognised as the inventor of two ideas in patents filed on its behalf, a team of UK academics says. The AI has designed interlocking food containers that are easy for robots to grasp and a warning light that flashes in a rhythm that is hard to ignore.
Patents offices insist innovations are attributed to humans — to avoid legal complications that would arise if corporate inventorship were recognised. And it could see patent offices refusing to assign any intellectual property rights for AI-generated creations. The Internet has become a place where we cultivate relationships. Through quick messages that we type with our thumbs on our phones, we keep in touch with friends and family; we flirt and fall in love. And the potential for miscommunication abounds. Or just enthusiastic? McCulloch says a lot of the confusion stems from the fact that people read Internet writing differently, depending on when they first went online.

The advertising blossomed on the day after Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong successfully and safely splashed down in the Pacific Ocean.

The paper itself was 88 pages that Friday, July 25, It contained 15 full-page ads about Apollo, and another half-dozen ads that were a half-page or bigger. In all, there were more than 22 pages of advertisements about the Moon landings. The coverage itself that day was only six pages. It was aimed at producing aliens as fully formed as the interstellar human travelers who encounter them. But the instruction also has the feel of a riddle, and neither Campbell nor Asimov considered its most obvious answer: a woman.
Gola is a planet ruled by a gentle civilization of telepathic nonhumanoid females with movable eyes and sensory functions available on all parts of their round, golden-fur-covered bodies.

Is the trend finally rising from the ashes, allowing us all to relive our best selves? Despite the apparent decline of dystopian YA movies in Hollywood, a steady stream of young adult novels in recent years has kept the genre afloat for teens who still wanted to consume these stories outside of the adaptations.
Some of the most popular series, like An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, both written by authors of colour, were first published during the dystopian craze of the early s, and subsequent books continue to be published without the marketing push that saw the likes of The Hunger Games and Divergent driven to success.

No sensible person goes to see a movie about killer alligators and then complains that it was silly and over the top. Now genetic evidence suggests that this ancient people trace some of their ancestry west all the way to Europe. We find that the early Iron Age population was genetically distinct due to a European-related admixture.
This genetic signal is no longer detectible in the later Iron Age population. Our results support that a migration event occurred during the Bronze to Iron Age transition in Ashkelon but did not leave a long-lasting genetic signature.

There are space operas that center on one world—novels such as Dune or The Snow Queen come to mind—but their plots require interactions between that planet and the rest of the narrative universe.
The story may take place on one world, but this world is only one of many. Space travel is a therefore a necessary feature of space opera. Travel can delightfully complicate the plot: trade, migration, proselytization, and the chance that the local equivalent of the Yekhe Khagan might pop by with ten thousand of his closest friends to discuss taxation and governance.

Adr1ft , by Three One Zero and published by Games is a pared down, minimalist game that demands attention and cheerily punishes you for not giving it.
I found a lot to enjoy in there, not the least of which is the killer opening. You wake up in a damaged space suit, in a decaying orbit, surrounded by the shattered remains of a vast space station that has very recently exploded. Player and character enter the game in identicla states of confusion and the plot unfolds at the same pace you follow the debris trail around the shattered station.

It feels strange to talk about Black Mirror reinventing itself. Even if you leave aside the fact that this is a show in its fifth season plus two specials , a point where habits tend to be firmly fixed, what would be the impetus for it? From its scandalous premiere in , Black Mirror has always been lauded for being exactly what it is. Even the people who have criticized it—for its cynicism, for its nastiness, for its reflexive distrust of technology—have helped to cement its brand, our idea of what a Black Mirror story is like and can accomplish. And yet, when you finish watching the three episodes of the just-released fifth season, there is no other way to describe them than as a departure.
