For Astronomers Only
Not an intrinsically bad thing. But -- punch in a date & get a serial number. Don't know the meaning? You're out of luck. That makes it useless to all but specialists.

Stardates are still ugly six-digit NEGATIVE numbers in the current century. He says that his algorithm only gives positive stardates after the year 2323, but what's the point? His algorithm may be "known throughout the net", but there are other algorithms on the Internet that give usable stardates for the current century that he could use. (Although the other stardate apps currently in the AppStore aren't any better.) How about one that makes the episode stardates match when they were on the air, so 41xxx is in 1987 & 56xxx is in 2002, etc.? Or he could use MJD, that astronomers use to date star observations in real life. How about the new stardates used in the latest movie, or Star Trek Online? Or give the user a choice. Which do you think looks better, -310758.06 or 90123.45? Also, it requires iOS 5.1 or greater, for no good reason. Why force users to upgrade unnecessarily?
