"i also liked it and idk while i m glad the actors who would play in it did i just feel it still was a good pilot. so jw i have been into star trek for a while now but i have always had a hard time figuring out years like when they do the star logs they say star date something with like two more numbers then the actual year. how do you figure out the exact year?"

yeah exactly. I think for most of the series the stardates were just random numbers that they put together, they usually aren’t even in  any order. In the 2009 movie though, say it was like 2233.04, the 2233 would be the year that it was taking place in, and the .04 would show what day in the year it was. I don’t know if that was a good explaination or not, but I found it all out on wikipedia a while back http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stardate
