"Starfleet shipbuilding rate in XXIII century - A comparison between Prime and JJ Universes (self.DaystromInstitute)"
@guinan In French we always use Roman numerals for century numbers.
@val interesting, is there a specific reason for this?
@guinan I have no idea
@guinan Doing some research, it looks like Arabic numerals replaced Roman numerals in science because they were a lot more convenient for the numbers scientists had to deal with.
Centuries are small numbers, so that was not an issue.
@guinan Thank you for asking the question, I never asked myself why I use Roman numerals almost every days :D
