Stardates Explained - 20180522.1830

You don't understand the startdates?

Take, for example, 20180522.1830

Let me stick some spaces in some helpful places:

2018 05 22 . 18 30

That better?

20180522 means 22nd May 2018, and 1830 is in 24-hour clock format, IE 6:30PM

Stardates in the Star Trek universe work in an entirely different way. Wikipedia has a good explanation on how they work.

The Iron Giant

Before he did The Incredibles, Brad Bird gave us an underrated gem in 1999 with his directorial debut: The Iron Giant. Based on Ted Hughes' 'The Iron Man' and set in a 50s America, the film follows Hogarth Hughes who discovers a gigantic robot (voiced by Vin Diesel). As he begins to bond with this mysterious creation, he must also find a way to hide him from a paranoid government investigator.
