Suggestions for birthdays of the crewmembers
A while ago, I read a thread where
Janeway's year of birth was discussed.
So after some thinking, I decided to come up with a suggestion for all the characters birthdays so that you all know when it's time to bake a cake, light some candles, hang up a picture of the birthday crew member, raise a toast and sing "Happy Birthday To You" in your most sweet and respectful voice.
With the help of Memory Alpha, Memory Beta, some Voyager books, my own Voyager Timeline (which can be found at the Kes Website) a Stardate Calculator and my own imagination, I have made this suggestion for official Voyager birthday celebrations.
Kathryn Janeway: Born 20 May 2335 (Stardate
Comment: According to Memory Alpha and Memory Beta, Janeway's birthday is 20 May. But no official year of birth is to find anywhere. The most realistic birthyear seem to be 2335 which will make the character's age the same as Kathryn Mulgrew's when Voyager started. It will also fit into the scenario in the book "Pathways" in which Janeway met William Riker at Starfleet Academy during her first year there.
Chakotay: Born 19 November 2329 (Stardate
Comment: According to Memory Alpha and Memory Beta Chakotay was born in 2329. The day and month of birth is the same as actor Robert Beltran.
Tom Paris: Born 9 November 2346 (Stardate
Comment: According to Memory Beta, Tom Paris was born in 2346. The day and month of birth is the same as actor Robert Duncan McNeill.
B'Elanna Torres: Born 11 September
2346 (Stardate 23693.37)
Comment: According to Memory Alpha, Torres was born in 2349, however Memory Beta states her year of birth to 2346. Memory Beta is obviously right since B'Elanna is older than Harry Kim.The day and month of birth is the same as actress Roxann Dawson.
Tuvok: Born 2 August 2264.
(Stardate -59584.69, old system 3877.4)
Comment: Memory Alpha and Memory Beta states Tuvok's year of birth to 2264. Memory Beta states that Tuvok was born at Stardate 3877.4. That must refer to the old stardate system used before 2323, otherwise Tuvok would be born in 2361 which is far from the truth. Some sources point out Tuvok's birthday at 2 August 2264 which is Stardate -59584.69.
Kes: Born 12 December 2369 (Stardate
Comment: Kes's birthday is celebrated in the season 1 episode "Twisted". Since the episode takes place in 2371, Kes's year of birth is 2369 which is also stated at Memory Alpha and Memory Beta. According to some sources, the Stardate for "Twisted" is 48949.8 which is Sunday 12 December 2371.
Neelix: Born 8 February 2337 (Stardate
Comment: According to Memory Beta, Neelix was born in 2337. The day and month of birth is the same as actor Ethan Phillips.
Harry Kim: Born 5 March 2349 (Stardate
Comment: In the book "The Black Shore", Harry Kim mention that it is his birthday. Memory Beta gives the Stardate of the day to 50175 which is Monday 5 March 2373
The Doctor: Activated 23 April 2371
Comment: According to Memory Alpha and Memory Beta, The Doctor (also known as Lewis Shmullus Zimmerman) was activated at Stardate 48308.2 = Friday 23 April 2371, three days before the official stardate for the episode "Caretaker" which is 48315.6 = Monday 26 April 2371, the day when the crew was beamed back to Voyager from the Caretaker's array and Janeway noted it in the ship's log.
Seven Of Nine: Born 24 June 2348 (Stardate
Comment: According to Memory Alpha, Seven Of Nine (or Annika Hansen) was born at stardate 25479 which according to my Stardate Calculator is 24 June 2348. However, Memory Alpha states her year of birth to 2350 while Memory Beta states her year of birth to 2348. I prefer to go with Memory Beta here since my Stardate Calculator states Stardate 25479 as 24 june 2348.
Some other crewmembers
Joe Carey: Born 15 August 2338 (Stardate
Comment: According to Memory Beta, Joe Carey was born in 2338. The day and month of birth is the same as actor Josh Clark.
Samantha Wildman: Born 5 May 2347 (Stardate
Comment: According to memory Beta, Samantha Wildman was born in 2347. The day and year of birth is the same as actres Nancy Hower.
Naomi Wildman: Born 19 July 2372 (Stardate
Comment: Naomi Wildman was born in the episode "Deadlock" which takes place at stardate 49548.7 which according to my calculations is Wednesday 19 July 2372.
