Timeline (approximate)

All dates are years before game start. Most are approximate.


>2000 - Dawn of the Great Empires
1000-600 - Start of Era Two
Star ways are heavily stormed; travel is often difficult or slow and migrations occurr during quiet periods. Some sectors remain clear, but these are patchy and often isolated.
400-250 – the Mizumite Renaissance and Expansionism period. Sixteen expeditions chart clear-space around Mizum and further; outposts and colonies formed and lost as the storms shift. The Mizumite Empire established.
270 – The Great Eastern Ether-Space Confederation (GEESC) is established
300-200 - Start of Era Three
227 - Paradisian battlecruiser Aurore Victoire crash-lands on Emmeria; repaired, refitted and renamed the SDF-01 Victory.
218 - Tranquillans arrive on Thetis
215 - SDF-02 Protector commissioned
205 - The Tysonoids attacks Emmeria; retroactively called the First Reflex War
180 - Mathematical Concepts Limited is incorporated on Delphi.
175 - Stormriders attack; Second Reflex War
171 - Yashimans arrive on Thetis
130-129 - Clone-Satrap of Kaldar attacks; Third Reflex War. SDF-01 destroyed, core systems installed in almost completed SDF-08 Gugalanna.
130-93- Reign of Aman Trodiko VII, the last in a line of weak Emperors. The Mizumite Empire begins to fracture as warlords and regional cliques defy the imperial government and begin to assert both provincial and colonial particularism.
122 - Impiragh signs association agreement with Thetis
121 - SDF-09 LeMay is built with copies of the core systems installed on the SDF-08.
120 - Departure of the Emmerian Expeditionary Force (EEF) to the distant world of Rubicon. SDF-08 and SDF-09 are flagships
120-110 - GEESC collapses amid internal disputes.
108-25 - The Long War in the far east over leadership in the post-GEESC era; Amazonia and Delphi are the leaders of the two main factions.
~115 - Approximate departure of the Rmasters from Rmaspace for Emmeria

96-93 - Mizumite Empire conquered by clone army under clone-satrap Boldozerina.
95 - Arrival of the EEF in Rmaspace.

85 - Hrang the Unforgiven attempts to seize the Legacy of Sachiel.
79 – Palace coup following the suppression of the last Mizumite resistance. Mizumite sanjak reorganized into the Auriferean Millennium Empire.

52 - Four Alkentair ships translate into Siyavash orbit and repeatedly violate the Absolute Defense Limit before setting course back for Alkentair.
51 - Alkentair returns to Siyavash with a 12 ship fleet. The Regent-Republic signs the Treaty of Amity and Open Markets with the Alkentair Republic, triggering the "Scramble for Siyavash" among powers of the Magnus Cluster.
50 - Start of Era Four
50-25 - Emmerian Golden Age
49 - Panhelios inaugurated. 0001 Panhelios Century.
30 - Third Alashiyan War; destruction of the Circle-Worlds
