    'Star Trek: The Next Generation: Wesley's Birthday

    From Redditor u/thederpyeevee:

    In S1E18, Wesley says "I'll be 16 next month." The season most likely starts in January of 2364, as the wiki states that the entire season takes place in 2364 and there's a few month time gap between seasons 1 and 2. That would put his birthday in 2348, as the wiki states. Now assuming, as stated earlier, that the season begins in January and does not last a full year (maybe 9 months), this episode, being about 2/3 of the way through the season, would take place around late June or early July. A good rule of thumb that I follow with Star Trek characters is that, if the wiki only states a year of birth and not the date, that the date is the same as the actor's real birthday, as this is the case for many characters with confirmed birthdays. That being said, that would place Wesley's birthday on July 29, exactly one month after the episode supposedly takes place.
