The following was first added as part of the main text, then removed, then re-added as a comment:
- The invention of duotronic computer systems by Richard Daystrom in 2243 may have been the result of (or resulted in) breaking the time barrier. It is also possible that the stardate system of timekeeping was introduced as a result of the introduction of duotronics and faster warp drives. The stardate system may have changed again about the time of the introduction of isolinear circuitry in the early 24th century.
IMO, even this speculation doesn't really clarify what different stardate systems have to do with anything, so that's completely off-topic - which leaves the dubious connection between duotronics and "breaking the time barrier" for which there's not even a hint in on-screen Trek. I don't think that this whole comment is either useful or necessary. -- Cid Highwind 11:06, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
