    Just for fun ;-)

    Remember, according to Einstein, time is not a constant. The relative rate
    of time is lower the faster one travels. 6 hours on and 6 hours off on a
    vehicle traveling close to the speed of light might be many years from the
    standpoint of another person "stationary" on the Earth.

    Maybe stardates are something like dog years or Internet time.

    Happy Vet's Day...

    How do they calculate Star Trek "stardates", anyway?

    I mean, it makes sense that you couldn't use Earth's
    revolutions around the Sun as a time keeping device.
    After all, you're a gazillion miles away.
