I was looking at the Captain's Log and it had the Spiral Date in it. What is Spiral Date and how is it calculated?

Aha! You are not the first to ask, and probably not the last.

The spiral Date looks like a version of the captain's log in the star trek universe. Captain James Tiberius Kirk first used this type of date in the Star Trek Original series then Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the next generation kept up with it. Correct me if I am wrong but it became a universal way for every world to use so that all worlds can keep up with it. I am wondering if the stardate originated on Vulcan and Earth made use of the system.
