The Timeline

While every star nation has it's own calendar to measure the passage of years, long ago, the galactic community, in a time of peace and cooperation long past, developed and implemented what is now known as the Galactic Standard Calendar, or GSC, a standardized measurement of hours, days, months and years that is recognized and utilized by all major factions as a common time keeping tool in their interaction with each other. This calendar does not replace individual star nations own calendars within their own borders.

The GSC is derived from the old Earth calendar, measuring time as the following; a year is made up of 365 twenty-four hour long days.

The Current year in the setting is: 3020 gsc

Aliens (The Ancients) Dinonapped a large population of Dinosaurs from Earth.

Emergence of the colony vessel Pioneer from fold space and arrival of the first Humans in this sector of the galaxy. Due to it's fold drive sabotage, the vessel is forced to undergo it's journey to the nearest star system at sub-light with the crew and colonists in hypersleep

Kǒnglóng's worldships arrive in the system they proceeded to name Sol β.

All the planets within the Sol β system have been colonized with a variety of colonies. Konglong eyes turn towards the stars.

UESS Pioneer colonizes a barren desert world they name Eden, establishing the United Earth colony of Eden on February 5, 2891

United Earth Colony of Eden and it's growing sphere of influence reestablished as the Interstellar Alliance.

The Taianese arrive in the sector and begin to colonize, renaming their base of operations to Liang System, and formally establish the Empire of Tai Pan.

The War of Liang begins as native Elves rally to wipe the Taianese off the planet.

The War of Liang concluded with the destruction of the planet's Node and the surrounding Elvish forces by orbital bombardment.

Liang (Tai Pan) system's organic population is decimated by the emergence of an alien disease.

The 4 Wars of Secession begin in Taianese Space. Each time, the combined Elf-Human army forces meet crushing defeat. Some of the humans start to believe that perhaps the elves were the ones that created the bioplague.

The 2nd War of Secession begins.

The 2nd War of Secession ends. The Interstellar Alliance pulls its support of the Rebellion and evacuates its citizens under a ceasefire agreement with Empire of Tai Pan. Any remaining Alliance citizens give up their citizenship and become citizens of Tai Pan. Others continue to fight.

The Emperor of Tai Pan, along with a massive fleet of warships and legions of soldiers on a The Grand Crusade in an attempt to expand to the galactic east; it never returns and his successor - now The Immortal Emperor - takes the eternal throne.

The 3rd War of Secession begins with former Alliance citizens allying with the Elven government against the Tai Pan.

The 3rd War of Secession ends. The Elven government agrees to withdraw into gated cities and become isolationists, signing an agreement of surrender to Tai Pan and vow to never take up arms again.

A insurgent group of Elves and humans make a final effort to Secede from Tai Pan and fail. The 4th and final war of Secession ends with the televised public execution of the insurgent leaders. Though initially planned to be one of their number, Bhelith Blackspear is spared this for reasons unknown.

The Wangdaio Colonies are settled by Taianese settlers that soon take advantage of their distance from the heart of Tai Pan to declare their independence. Meanwhile, the Paradise War occurs, briefly embroiling Tai Pan, the Alliance, and the Gartagen Union in a brief 6 month long war before an armistice and mining deal is struck.

The Principality of Prydain creates the Sutākame for a terror attack on the Taianese populace to demonstrate their power, humiliating Tai Pan.

The Wangdiao Colonies go dark and are consumed in civil conflict; sensing weakness, the now freed Sutākame ravish the planets for resources while Xeno slavers prey on escaping refugees.

The Wangdiao Colonies' survivors are recovered and evacuated to other systems, and integrated into the Interstellar Alliance and back into Tai Pan.
