- There is some controversy over the dating of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The earliest the film could take place is late 2272, based on information from VOY: "Q2", which stated that Kirk's first five-year mission ended in 2270, and information within the film that Kirk had not "logged a single star hour in two-and-a-half years." The latest the film could take place is 2277, since the Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan style uniforms are in use by 2278. (TNG: "Cause and Effect"). Pocket Books officially places the film in 2273.
- Star Trek: Legacy's first mission set in the TOS movies era apparently takes place in this year, given the stardate, 7489.6, although for some inexplicable reason, Admiral James T. Kirk commands the USS Enterprise-A, which was launched more than a decade later in 2286, instead of the refit USS Enterprise.
