1 Year = 1000 SDs approximately.

In TOS, Willy Shatner merely spewed out a random number between 3000 and 4000 it seemed. When TNG started, they planned that 1 Season = 1000 SDs, and then someone assigned an appropriate StarDate to each show.

"When pressed for an explanation, Roddenberry said:    This time system adjusts for shifts in relative time which occur due to the vessel's speed and space warp capability. It has little relationship to Earth's time as we know it. One hour aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise at different times may equal as little as three Earth hours. The stardates specified in the log entry must be computed against the speed of the vessel, the space warp, and its position within our galaxy, in order to give a meaningful reading."

Roddenberry admitted that he didn't really understand this, and would rather forget about the whole thing. :D :D :D :D :D
