The choice of the name "Stardate" seemed, well, logical for this batch. Set a course for creative tatting...engage!
Oh, BTW, I derived a stardate from today's calendar date by putting the last 2 digits of the year first ("10" from 2010), then the month (01 for January), the dot, then the date. I found the instructions in the book Star Trek Chronology by Michael Okuda and Denise Okuda.
Just felt a little "spacey" today!
