1991 Dissolution of the USSR and the creation of a number of puppet states 
2005 United States establishes puppet state in Iraq 
2018 Dissolution of the People’s Republic of China due to civil unrest 
2021 Beginning of the Iran-Iraq war 
2023 Iran uses a nuclear weapon on Iraq. Pakistan responds by using nuclear weapons on Iran. Iran retaliates in kind 
  Iran-Iraq war ends with Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan effectively wiped out 
2025 Secret of the United States’ control of Iraq comes to light. Outraged the remaining Islamic nations form the Coalition of Qiyamah, invading Israel soon after and beginning World War III 
2028 Turkey signs non-agression treaty with the Coalition. Fearing a shift in the tactics used by the Coalition, including an increase in the attacks across the Mediterranean, Italy and Spain push EU to withdraw from the war. As a result the EU signs a non-aggression treay with the Coalition. Without any allied ground available the United States is forced to withdraw from the region, ending World War III 
2029 Dissolution of the Unites States due to economic strain 
2030-2120 With the super powers now gone and most governments looking inward, international interactions are now primarily corporate. This leads to the rise of the mega-corporations. Filling the void left by failed nations these corporations achieve power and authority greater than most of the governments that regulate them. Built upon tenants of greed and control, public opinion turns against these corporations within a generation as total debt surpasses the total resourced of the world. The primary weapon used in this revolution is the rejection of an economy built on principles no longer relevant to human life. The dissolution of the gold economy sees these corporations crumble. Energy becomes the foundation of the new economy. 
2037 The first stable Krasnikov tunnel is constructed 
2040 Colonization of Mars begins 
2045 A Krasnikov tunnel connects a point near Earth’s orbit to a point near Mar’s orbit 
2061 A sub-lightspeed Alcubierre drive is constructed 
2068 A Krasnikov tunnel connects Earth and the Kuiper Belt. A return tunnel that would have allowed for the violation of causality is created, but anything that enters this second tunnel is never seen from again. 
2084 A Krasnikov tunnel connects the Kuiper Belt and Alpha Centauri 
2090 A lightspeed Alcubierre drive is constructed 
2091-2274 The Rosetta Code is developed. This breakthrough allows a computer to generate electical signals that the brain can read while also being able to read the signals of the brain. This allows humans to interface with technology directly. Though not a true singularity, this unlocks vast potential within mankind, one that is horded by the mega-corporations for more than three decades. By the time the gold economy is destroyed the technology has advanced to the point that it is widely available. Fully biological humans become rare and in several instances a person’s personality and memories are implanted into an entirely artificial construction. Humans become effectively immortal. 
2104 Sirius is established as the first galactic hub, connecting the Sol system, Alpha Centauri and Barnard’s Star 
2120-Present Day Boundaries between nations become almost non-existant and where one is born is less important than what one believes. This leads to a shift in nationality driven by ideas rather than geography. Though the principles people gather around have changed over time, this basic community mentality has persisted for centuries. 
2129 The ruins of an ancient civiliation is discovered on Gliese 876 c 
2232 The first Phae is successfully brought to maturity 
2269 The black hole at Capricorni X-2 becomes the second galactic hub, connecting to Sirius and her 8 Krasnikov tunnels 
2274-2315 It is discovered that the implementation of cybernetics is having a detrimental affect on the human genome. Fertility rates have been decreasing for decades, but this is the first proof that the human body us being killed by the heavy use of artifical organs. Facing the extinction of the human race two ideologies emerge. The first believes that humanity’s future lies in discarding the frail human shells completely. The other believes that humanity is worth saving, and that without the growth brought from evolution we are only delaying the inevitable. This conflict eventually results in the Eugenics War. 
2315-Present Day Humanity now lives by the Eugenics Imperitive. By this law no human may optionally replace more than 15% of their body with cybernetic enhancements and no more than 50% should it be required to save the individual’s life. But once this individual dies their consciousness is to be added to the Ark, a repository for the dead. Here they can continue to exist in a world defined by their desires. Humans must allow evolution to continue, but death is rarely the end. But after 60 years, the truth of existence within the Ark is a mystery. 
2315 The Undying Star is formed 
2321 The Guiding Will is formed 
2327 The Enlightened Voice is formed 
2359 Altar Station, an intact Phae ruin, is discovered on Mu Arae b 
2360-2365 The Phae reconstruct a number of technologies their species once possessed 
2366 The Phae decipher the coordinates of their home world 
2379 The Heritage War begins
