"Days of Yesteryear" would be a more appropriate title, as Data finds an old ship in space that's been there for years, with 3 people who've been frozen for over 400 years. Meanwhile, Starfleet sends the Enterprise to the edge of the Romulan neutral zone, where star bases and their personnel have disappeared after decades of no contact between the Federation and the Romulans.

This episode was a milestone in the history of Star Trek by establishing that the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation
(1987) took place in the year 2364. This was the first time an exact calendar date was provided for a Trek episode. (Kirk's timeline had been established as the 23rd century in the movie Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
(1986).) All Star Trek episodes, chronologies, novels and background information since 1988 have been calculated from this date. See more
