Alternate Reality
(split 2233)

The Daystrom Institute, also known as the Daystrom Research Institute, was a 24th century organization that contributed to the United Federation of Planets. The Institute was named after Doctor Richard Daystrom, who invented the duotronic computer and attempted unsuccessfully to create the first multitronic computer. (TOS: "The Ultimate Computer")


The Institute published two periodicals, the Journal of Daystrom Institute and the Daystrom Institute Journal. On stardate 41039, two physicists, Payne and Miller, working at the Institute investigated the spontaneous transformation of tachyons under Molnar conditions. Their findings supported the hypothesis that tachyon propagation can be described by hybrid-classical interpretations of sub-quantum mechanics. (TNG: "Redemption II", display graphic)

In 2364, the Institute was developing a tomographic imaging scanner, capable of multiphasic resolution. By 2370, this device was standard equipment aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "All Good Things...")

The Institute had several colleges that included the Daystrom Institute of Technology. This Institute, located on Mars, was attended by Leah Brahms. She earned a Doctor of Theoritical Physics and wrote the thesis, "Higher Order Warp Field Propulsion Applications". Upon graduation, as a research assistant for the Institute, she developed protocols for measuring higher order subspace distortions and wrote articles for the Scientific Tasmanian. After working at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards for several years, she became a Professor of Theoritical Physics for the Institute of Technology. (TNG: "Booby Trap", display graphic)

Commander Bruce Maddox held the Associate Chair of Robotics at the Daystrom Technological Institute in the mid 24th century. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man")

There was a Daystrom Annex on Galor IV. In 2366, Vice Admiral Anthony Haftel was assigned there. (TNG: "The Offspring")

The Institute also included the Daystrom Institute Archaeological Council. Vash was offered a post at the Institute by Professor Woo after she returned from her journeys with Q in 2369. (DS9: "Q-Less")

Seconds before he killed himself by piloting his shuttlecraft into Epsilon 119, Gideon Seyetik asked Benjamin Sisko to send his obituary to the Daystrom Institute for publication. (DS9: "Second Sight")

In 2378, when The Doctor's holomatrix was in danger of decompiling, he requested that Captain Janeway donate his mobile emitter to the Institute for study. (VOY: "Renaissance Man")

In an alternate future, Leah Brahms had become the director of the Institute. (TNG: "All Good Things...")

Information on Payne-Miller's experiment was mentioned in the new text that replaced the original text in the remastered episode "Redemption II".
It was suggested in "All Good Things..." that the Daystrom Institute might be located on Rigel III or at least in the Rigel system, as Leah Brahms, the new director in the alternate future, was living on that planet with her family.
