# Series Season Source Comment
1 ENT 1 The Andorian Incident Said to have happened 3,000 years before the episode
2 ENT 1 The Andorian Incident Said to have happened 3,000 years before the episode. This would seem to contradict Soval's claim that Vulcans did not achieve star flight until 1,500 years after the Great Awakening
3 TOS 2 Amok Time SPock said his family had held the land for more than 2000 Earth years. This is 2001 years prior to the episode.
4 TOS 2 Amok Time
5 ENT 4 The Forge Soval says Surak is still thought of this way after 1,800 years. He may be referring to the Great Awakening with this comment, but it seems sensible that Surak's movement gathered pace for some years before it really changed the planet
6 TNG 7 Gambit, Part 2 The Time of Awakening is described as having happened 2,000 years ago
7 ENT 4 The Forge Soval said it took the Vulcans nearly 1,500 years after the great Awakening to travel to the stars. This is 1,499 years after
8 ENT 4 The Forge Soval said it took the Vulcans nearly 1,500 years after the great Awakening to travel to the stars. This is 1,499 years after. Note that since the Romulan splinter group left at the time of the Awakening, Vulcans must have already had interstellar flight then. Most likely the Romulan exodus was aboard a slower than light sleeper ship or generational vessel, and this date refers to the Vulcan invention of warp drive.
9 ENT 3 Proving Ground Shran said that the threat of massive retaliation had prevented a Vulcan attack for 200 years
10 Speculative Date is assumed to be the same as in the real world timeline
11 ENT 2 Carbon Creek It appears from the episode that this was indeed a real event and not just a story
12 ENT 2 The Catwalk T'Pol said the incident happened over a hundred years ago;this is 101 years before the episode
13 ENT 2 The Catwalk T'Pol said the incident happened over a hundred years ago; this is 101 years before the episode
14 ENT 2 Dawn T'Pol said that this happened almost a hundred years ago; this is 99 years before the episode
15 ENT 1 Fallen Hero She states that she has been a successful Ambassador for 94 years; it is possible that she was an unsuccessful Ambassador even earlier than this
16 Star Trek : First Contact
17 ENT 2 Cease Fire T'Pol gives the exact year
18 ENT 4 Bound T'Pol said this happened over 50 years ago - this is 51 years before the episode.
19 ENT 4 Bound
20 TOS 1 This Side of Paradise
21 ENT 2 Cease Fire The agreement is said to have taken 8 years to agree
22 ENT 2 The Seventh T'Pol says this happened 30 years ago. Note that she claimed to be too young to be one of the agents, though she was 34 at this time according to 'Zero Hour'. It may be that Vulcans of this period considered a person too young for responsibility until some time between 34 and 47, or it may be that T'Pol lied to conceal her true age.
23 ENT 4 The Forge Phlox said that T'pau was 32 standard years old. I'm presuming standard years equates to Earth years.
24 ENT 1 Dear Doctor T'Pol said the treatment was 23 years ago
25 ENT 2 The Seventh T'Pol describes the events which took place 17 years ago
26 ENT 4 The Forge A caption on the screen said this had happened seventeen years ago.
27 ENT 1 Fusion Eight years before the episode
28 ENT 1 Fusion T'Pol says she lived on Earth for two years before going to Enterprise
29 ENT 1 The Andorian Incident

39 TOS 3 Day of the Dove
40 DS9 1 If Wishes Were Horses
41 VOY 3 Flashback Tuvok said he was 29 at the time of the Khitomer conference. Note that this is not consistent with Fury in which Janeway said he was yet to reach 100 years of age, implying a birth date after 2277.
