01 May [reference stardate 1/9805.1]
Daystrom Data Concepts is formed in San Francisco, Terra by Dr. Randall L. Daystrom, the inventor of the first multitronic engram-logic-enhanced com- puter. It will be the sole manufacturer of the Multitronic computer series used by Star Fleet Command as well as numerous civilian and educational concerns. After the death of Randall Daystrom, Dr. Richard Daystrom will take control of company operations until his mental collapse requires his son Richard Daystrom II to take over the position of CEO. This company will supervise the restoration of Memory Alpha's main computer complex fol- lowing the Lights of Zetar incident. Dr. Cynthia Daystrom will be credited with salvaging all but a minute portion of the research center's total accumulated access files [FASA].

The Four Years War ends, with the Treaty of Axanar signed by represent- atives of the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire on Delta Orcus (Axanar). The Axanar Peace Mission negotiates the establishment of limited diplomatic channels between the two sides and obtains concessions from each to create new U.F.P.-Klingon border. James Kirk participates in this mission and is awarded the Palm Leaf. At the conference, Kirk meets the Klingon Krodan and his son Kain [FRS, FASA, EOM, Cml, WGD, TOS #66].

The "Republic" is one of four starships in orbit of Vulcan as a show of unity and as a reminder to the Vulcan Council of the scarcity of Vulcan nationals in Star Fleet. The result will be the U.S.S. "Intrepid" (NCC-1708) manned by an all-Vulcan crew [GN 2, Cml].

James Kirk is given his first deep space assignment aboard the heavy cruiser U.S.S.

The task force maintains radio silence and will fail to report back at its scheduled time. Eventually after extensive communications attempts fail, a rescue group is dispatched to the last reported position of the task force. All that is ever found is the engine nacelle of the U.S.S. "Alesia" adrift in an unknown asteroid cluster. It is suspected that Romulans had ambushed the group but nothing is ever proven [FASA].

The "Titiac" PB-47 series (SW40/5-3KT) warp drive, the last of the circumferential drive systems, is developed and installed aboard star- ships. The pinnacle and culmination of circumferential warp engine design, representing significant improvements over the PB-32s in both pre-warp and warp acceleration, they are somewhat smaller, more reliable, and more 'field serviceable' than any other warp drive system before them. An improved warp generator, additional cycling stations, and increased capacity of the antimatter distribution system all contribute to the widespread use of this design in the years to come [SFE].

Montgomery Scott is assigned as an Engineering Specialist to the destroyer U.S.S. "Pompey" (NCC-506) where he quickly advances to full Lt. He will then serve aboard the transport U.S.S. "Thales" (NCC-3813) and the destroyer U.S.S. "Saladin" (NCC-500) [EOM].

January All (surviving) "Detroyat" class ships are recommissioned and active as heavy scout vessels, with the exception being the U.S.S. "Resolution" (NCC-1101) testbed vessel. Their untested elements are replaced with sophisticated sensor and tracking equipment [DCP, SotF].

A review board is established to determine whether it would be more cost efficient to uprate the "Ptolemy" (NCC-3801) class transport/tugs or to construct transports of the recently submitted "Keppler" (NCC-3816) configuration. After careful analysis, both options are pursued. Not only are the construction of 15 "Keppler" class transports authorized, but the modernization of the "Ptolemy" class is approved. The "Ptolemy" transport/tugs are refitted with PB-32 warp drive units, giving them the extended field capability necessary to carry two containers at a time. The additional power available from the more efficient warp drive units also allows phaser banks to be installed [FRS].

Ship-mounted phaser banks are installed on all major Star Fleet starships. Starship lasers become obsolete. The "Surya" class frigates are among the ships refitted--their 21.5 QEV dilithium laser emplacements are replaced with phaser armaments [SotF, HCE].

The U.S.S. "Essex" (NCC-1727) is fitted with a "Saber" fire control system, Tri-Tel unit, and "Lynx" weapon system. Her "Wolf" Model 2 indirect photon torpedo system is replaced with a Mark 12 indirect system, closely coordinated with the aforementioned defensive systems [SotF].

The D-11B "Dath D'lan" ("One Wing") class destroyer enters service in the Klingon fleet. The most unusual design in the Klingon Imperial Navy, it is easily recognized on visual scan because of its single wing. It fares poorly in battle due to its asymetrical design, which works to restrict the field of fire from the weapon mounting hardpoints. Nevertheless it has a maximum warp of 8 and a crew of 218 with 220 passengers. This class will inevitably be utilized for light assault duties, having the capacity to carry a company of marines, and used to secure lightly-held systems. They also are reported accompanying D-9 research cruisers in their efforts to open new territories [FASA].

Following the destruction of the "Lydia Sutherland" at the Battle of Ghioghe, Commander James Kirk is promoted to Captain and given command of the U.S.S. "Enterprise." The youngest man to captain a starship, and Pike's hand-picked successor, his first mission is to transport the Warp-Speed Classic Vaudeville Company to Starbase 13.
