** ''Voyager'' was very much in the news when the movie was produced. It seemed likely there would be more ''Voyagers'' the same way that viewers of ''2001'' in 1968 thought it was likely we'd have moon bases by 2001.

** I didnít know that. I guess thatís more plausible than a lot of other official explanations in ST. Still, I canít be the only one who prefers the FanonDiscontinuity route? Itís not that TMP is bad, (despite the rough edges) itís just that even with a 14-year gap itís jarring to see II come after it.

*** On a totally unrelated side note, I always found the large gap in time between I and II funny in retrospect, given that II-IV all take place within the span of a few months, and V not all that long after that, though there does appear to be a moderate gap between V (2286/7) and VI (2393).

*** On a totally unrelated side note, I always found the large gap in time between I and II funny in retrospect, given that II-IV all take place within the span of a few months, and V only 2 years after that, though there does appear to be a moderate gap between V (2287) and VI (2393).

** Doesn't make a lot of sense, though, when you consider that the probe was sent out 300 years prior to the events of the movie, putting it around the early 1970s. Considering that humans didn't invent anything even approaching faster than light until Zefram Cochrane in 2063, more than likely the culprit was either a black hole they hadn't charted yet, or some anomaly similar to [[Recap/StarTrekVoyagerS6E8OneSmallStep the one near Mars that transported John Kelly to the Delta Quadrant]] that Voyager (the starship, not the probe) discovered. Given that any black hole that close would not be all that swell for the inhabitants of Earth, I'd stake my money on the latter.

*** To be fair, it is pointed out at the time Kirk informs Decker of the change that this is a temporary reduction in grade. Knowing Kirk, though, he'd definitely do his most to keep the Enterprise, the assumption then being (assuming Decker lasts the mission) that Decker would most likely get command of another ship.
