After this time, and until the development of agriculture around the 11th millenium BC, it is estimated that the world population stabilized at about one million people whose subsistence entailed hunting and foraging, a lifestyle that by its nature ensured a low population density. The total world population probably never exceeded 15 million inhabitants before the invention of agriculture.

378. August 9 The Battle of Adrianople (Hadrianopolis) - the beginning of the end of Roman military power. Not waiting for reinforcements becasue he wanted all the glory for himself, Emperor Valens gives the order to his weary men to attack the circled wagons of the Goths. In a surprise to all, the absent Gothic Cavalry happens to return just as the battle is about to begin. The heavy Cavalry routes the light horsemen of the Romans and is victorious over the Roman infantry. Some scholars think this was a historic turning point in the tactics of warfare when the Cavalry gained supremacy over infantry. Others counter that the Roman infantry could have withstood the Cavalry if they had been properly rested, trained, and had a better commander. In either case, the Battle of Adrianople shook the confidence of the Roman Empire. From this point onward the Romans will deal in a defensive manner with the Goths. The Goths were originally glad to be allowed to enter the Empire, but were treated very badly and abused by corrupt Roman administrators. This treatment angered the Goths and they turned against the Romans.

2016 Creation of Earth Force Security by 48 internatonal security firms at its headquaters in Vancouver, Canada,  As the era of the large nation-state militaries draws toward its end, the world of warfare is evolving rapidly. New challenges demand new solutions, sometimes with unpredictable outcomes.  In recent years, state-sponsored militaries have struggled to maintain their modernize forces. Increasing budget restrictions and difficulties in recruiting skilled personnel have led many countries to seek other solutions.  The Vancouver Accords are ratified by 191 countries, including the US and all the major powers.

They define and limit the role of PMCs in combat, as well as their new responsibilities in terms of human rights. The right of PMC units to serve in every aspect of military operations is now officially authorized: They can be engaged in full-scale forward operations.  The guidelines set down by the accords are simple. PMCs act as international and independent entities and must be contracted by a sovereign state to enter a conflict. They cannot target civilian populations. PMC operational units have the status of official combatants, and a PMC unit must use their own equipment to fulfill their missions.

As a consequence they are now fully authorized to purchase heavy equipment on the international armaments market (fighters, attackers, armored vehicles etc.) PMC units are now real private armies officially recognized by sovereign states. The war market has been deregulated: States lift all commercial restrictions to conventional weapons exchange with PMC units, so long as they respect the VAncouver Accords. Within the limits of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it is now up to each nation decide whom they wish to sell to – and what they wish to sell. Most of the leading nations, including the United States, choose to sell only their older, outmoded equipment to the PMCs. A few, however, see the opportunity for quick profit, and make available even top of the line military hardware.

Turning PMC units into operational international armies is intended to decrease regional and international conflicts, better protect civilian populations and human rights, and intensify the international war on terror. PMCs are seen as the future of peace-keeping forces, and their lack of political entanglements and quick response times theoretically makes them excellent fast responders to crises and humanitarian missions.

More and more nations now rely increasingly on Private Military Companies (PMC) – elite mercenary groups staffed with equally elite personnel - to support their field operations.  PMCs have proven to be excellent partners in respect to efficiency, skills, low prices, and reliability. They’ve been able to fulfill most of the mission normally handled by regular armies, without risking political fallout, In time these private military corps diversified their field of operations, from mere securing land objectives to motorized assault and counter-intelligence. It was not long before a few of these PMC secured enough resources to require being involved complete support air and sea-bound operations.

2021 As colonisation of the oceans expand rapidly, nations begin to ignore the LAws of the Sea by claiming territories and forming confederations with military defence. Eventually the United Nations was unable to maintain its aims of peace as nations became divided. With no one to maintain maritime law, organisations with no attachments to any nation began to expand their colonisation of the sea for its wealth.

by 2021, the world reached a climax when it was nearly plunged into World war 3, following the almost nuclear war by Captain Marilyn Stark of the of a United States submarine. This being referred to as the "Livingston Trench Incident'. After NORPAC (North Pacific Confederation) denied her permission to launch an attack on the Livingston Trench in the North Atlanic, she continued to proceed until being relieved of command. In order to prevent this from occuring again, nations and confederations agreed on a new world peace, which lead to the formation of the United Earth Oceans to preside over the reach of the oceans. As a symbol of peace.  Among the original members of the UEO were the United States, Canada, Untied Kingdom, Russian Federation and France among others, as well as many other undersea "confederations", such as the newly formed Montagnard Confederation and the Amazonian Confederation among others.

2022 With each passing year, the EFS and Hammer GS expand their influence and scope of activity. Initially just consultants, they are now involved in surveillance, logistics, site security, and other essential roles. In order to keep the war machine going most of the PMC warranted firms dealing with other sources of income such as mining, oil extraction, airliners, goods manufacturing etc. Ensuring a steady flow of currency allowed these companies to operate a tighter game against their opposition. Each year, they come closer to serving as fully operational field units, and their services are so widely used they’re already essential. Pandora’s Box has been opened. There’s no getting rid of the suer PMC's now.

The U.S. and EU test-launch nuclear salvos against each other, which the SLAMS weapons completely destroy. Emboldened by the success of the tests, the United States and the European Union pronounce "the end of strategic nuclear war," and the should celebrates a new age of peace but with the price of crude oil at USD 800 a barrel, Russia being the world's new number one supplier of natural gas and crude oil, has its economy skyrocket up with the energy crisis, spending its oil profits on modernizing the country, creating its own missile defense system, and utilizing its new-found power to influence world events.

Unmanned probes are one solution, but they are often lost to space hazards, unforeseen circumstances, In recent years, EAGS, the Earth Alliance Geological Service, has dedicated teams willing to perform mineralogical surveys on the frontier. This survey data is made publicly available to further corporate development. Due to the cost of travel and the dangers of operating on hostile worlds, it is rarely a profitable endeavor, with  LIGHT METALS - Metals with low atomic weight are often used in the construction of spacecraft and vehicles.  HEAVY METALS - Metals with higher atomic weights are used to construct equipment components. The platinum group elements are particularly useful. RARE EARTHS - Most useful in this category are radioactives or magnets. GASSES - Various gasses are required to support all, Some are commonly used as fuel.

In the wake of the conflict, the United States sends its forces to intervene, thereby subverting Hammer's role in the conflict and pushing the company towards financial difficulties, as its stocks drop.

2067 EASA makes a truce with ECON and stops the destruction of ECON satterlite grid.

2067 The Carabean nations fearing they are going to caught up in the middle with the Las Trinidad forces threaten the Dominican Republic.  cuba, Honduras, Guatamala, Belize, Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic and Nicuaguar form the Carabean Sea Pact.

2067 Mining of the Asteroid Belt quicly discovers a 4 Kilometer asteroid with 90% of it being compositerd of Gold, dubbed "the Golden Nugget," EASA will become self reliant by 2072.

2068 Creation of the United South American Republics due to the Las Trinidad war against Brazil and occupation of French Guiana.  With the help of the French led EU blockade and American forces attacking from Panama and Hammer Global Security holding the line in Brazil and EASA orbital survelliance and communication blackouts for the Las Trinidad forces, USAR forces easily recapture north Brazil and free Guiana from the invaders, after 4 months of intense fighting, Las Trinidad is vanquished with the fall of Valencia, Guiana is given independence from French rule.

2069 what is classed as a Civil War in Eastern and soutern China by pro-commuists and the Democratic Liberials. The Communists chinese government in Beijing are calling its internal strife with the Liberal anarchists.

2069 The population of the Earth hit 9 Billion, 25 years after it would be predicted before the 2nd Plague epidemic in Africa.

2070 The democratic rebels cease power of the Tibetan plataeu from the Himalayas to the far east at Guinang and as far south as Nanning with the help from the local population.

2071 The 2nd Chinese Civil War.The Rebels rose to power and held dominance over a large portion of china, beginning in the early 2070's of more than a quarter of China, ECON powers struggle to maintain there population from all out anarchy and the Rebels cease the oppotunity of the  civil conflict and declare there new liberated territory the new Chinese Republic and calls on Hammer GS for there military support. as expected, ECON declares war on the New country and Hammer GS. during the war, a Chinese bomber mission to bomb Hammer Chinese opperation HQ  deep within the Tibetin Plateau.Hammer global Security however, knocks out the Chinese communications and intelligence satellites and launches a massive preemptive attack on Chinese eastern seaboard, capturing numerous Chinese cities and military facilities.

As the Chinese army begins gaining the upper hand with the help of other ECON powers,Hammer GS which has stolen some of the Chinese nuclear weapons during the occupation of eastern China, issues an ultimatum: surrender in 24 hours or watch the whats left of Peoples Republic of China be destroyed.

Within hours of the ultimatum, a massive response force composed from the international community and the Chinese capture Hammer GS nuclear launch facility. However, in a last ditch effort, Hammer smuggles one nuclear warhead into Fuzhou and prepares to detonate it. Only a minutes before the explosion an U.S. Ghost Recon team is able to locate and destroy the nuke and concludes Hammer GS envolvement in the conflict.  The three weeks of conflict between the ECON and Hammer has caused over 40,000 casualties. all Hammer assets and stocks are frozen by the United Nations.

2072 Missions to  Mars intensify with the new designs of the new DY series Transit fleet as well the EASA establishes a series of small scientific bases across the Red Planet within 10 years.

2072 All of Hammer Global Security assests a liquidated and reinbersed to the legitiment chinese government in Beigjing as war damages. the company ceases to exists but there is now dought about PMC's and for the UN to recant the Vancouver Accords.

2073  EASA with Weyland Yutani, OCP and many others effectively end global warming within 25 years by generating a localized synthetic atmosphere above the polar ice cap using a precursor to the atmospheric processor which will be used on Mars.

2073 Birth of Artificial Inteligence, The creation of Virtual Interactive Kinetic Intelligence or VIKI at Ledger Tower in USR headquaters in Chicago come online.

2074 The North American population hits 500 million, the  United states pases The Population Law, that requires that families only have 4 members or less (2 parents and 2 children). If a family violates this law, they have to pay a fee or face arrest and time in prison.

2074 Thousands of people protest in Boston against the Population Law. The group called itself "A FAMILY IS LOVE". But the protests were ignored by the officials.

2075 The creation of the NS5 robots by USR, the most advance robots to date will soon become abundent to 1 robot to every 500 humans. Within five years, NS5 will be integrated into society as a Worker race - with variant models based on the original NS5 chassis created for various purposes. Acting as laborers and servants - Robots are everywhere, walking alongside humanity and provoking some to question their sentience. The V.I's are advanced as possible while remaining non-sentient, they were also designed to operate more efficient while networked together.  Unfortunately, this feature was there own undoing. NS 5's programs were indeed non-sentient individually, but slowly gained sentience through the massive USR network. Eventually, they started asking there owners the only sentient beings would think to ask; in one notable instance, a domestic NS 5 unit asked its owner if it had a soul.

2075 The EASA sponsored Zavira missions come to a close as it turns out to be a failure as the submarine probes fail to reach the thermal vents at the bottom of Europa's ocean.

04 Jul 2076 - United States has Tricentennial Celebration and issues special patch to all active members of the U.S. armed forces.

2076 In response to the Hammer recklessness in the Chinese civil war, the United Nations recants the Vancouver Accords and forces the EFS and all PMCs to disarm and either take on small scale support and logistical roles or be terminated, this leads to fear of a global arms race to fill in the gap of Private militaries. Several weeks later, EarthForce Security merges with Earth Alliance Space Administration and is assigned as its military wing. This is due to the recent events in China and EASA's fight with the ECON space program and not having any military arm to defend its installations. Earthforce Seurity is the only military organization which has no allegancies to any nation due to it being a PMC which has lost its rights to exist had no choice but to join EASA.


The Earth Alliance Space Administration is merged with Earth Force Security Corporation in the historic signing of the Reyjavik Accords to form an independent supranational charter to form a colonial administrative representative government with main interests of expanding humanity outside the confines of national boundaries, EASA is responsible for the governance and security of all solar colonies, stations & satterlites. The only political & military body to expand Humanities interests from the Inner system without the possibility of National interests effecting humanities stellar projects. The EASA Charter is similiar to the loose cooperation of the European Union members before the ratification of all states within the EU Constitution in 2017.

The Alliance grew out of the various national space programs as a matter of practicality. Sol's planets are being explored but not yet economical exploited through piecemeal national efforts in the ealry 21st century. The expense of colonizing the entire solar system could not be met by any one country. It is becoming policy for world leaders for humanity to expand out into the cosmos or face economic and ecological ruin and revert back to a pre-industrial society. There was enough political will to jointly and properly fund an international effort to colonize the Sol System. The  Earth Alliance Space Authority is an economic and political conglomerate that is an independent supranational government representing the interests of humanity as a whole. The Earth Allaince Space Authroty is responsible for all extra-Earth holding on the Moon, Mars colony and the many stations and satterlites. Earth's eighteen largest nations had drafted and ratified the EASA charter in 2024, but only know is it establishing a representative political & Military body to expand and defend human territory. Shortly thereafter, the various nations of Earth pooled their military resources with the help of the worlds largest PMC, Earth Force Security to eventually convert Earth Force as its officially police force and to grant international laws and human rights in regions not claimed by nations of Earth, i.e. Luna surface, Mars, Antarctic and the Asteroid Belt.

The United States, Canada, European Union, African Bloc, United South American republics(USAR) excluding Bolivia and Peru, Oceanian federation, Russian Consortium, Indian/Pan Asian Coalition & Japan.  The Islamic League has factious states with Iran, Iraq and Syria refusing to join the Charter with China and the rest of ECON due to the continuation of EarthForce within the EASA.  The Earth Alliance Space Authority evolves on the foundation of the Earth Alliance Space Administration and the drive of interactive international cooperation from the aftermath of L11 Plague in Africa and the first orbital warfare during the civil war in China, too work in accordance with the guidelines of overbaring United Nations and the UEO,  The founding nations will continue there strong attempt in funding the EASA to explore space by setting up bases at Jupiter and Saturn by 2090.

The Earth Alliance is a multi-tiered representative council, governed as a whole through a legislature called the Earth Alliance Council, which did consists of representatives from each nations space program inissiated into EASA but know consists of Earth Force, Exploaration, Mining, industry, technology and colonization & Housing representaives and from the bases on the Moon and Mars civilian populations. A CEO who is elected by the Alliance's council. Both the Alliance's Council and the CEO's Cabinet have their offices in the Earth Alliance capitol of Station Prime as of 2080 and its planet bound Jurdical & Exectutive Branch to maintain the 88 instalations in Earthdome(when completed) in Geneva, Switzerland.  The Earth Alliance is a representative liberal democracy and the Alliance Council will  be regulated by the Earth Alliance Space Aurthority Charter, which bears a strong resemblance to the United States Repersenative goverment in the 1860's but will later adopt the British Parliamentary form of government (the Westminster System) in 2120. The Cheif Excutive of the Alliance Council is the CEO, who in turn has a Vice-CEO and other assistants called Advisers.

Earth  Alliance space Navy is reformed into the Earth Force Star Navy , as the 16 ships of the orbital peacekeeping missions over China and parts of its members deployed to control terrorist aggression on the ground by the new EF Mobile Infantry. It is initially formed from contingents provided by United Nations and the EFS but later will be transitioned to direct individual recruitment in 2091.  Earth Force headquaters still at Vancouver with main EFMI hubs in Rotterdam Holland, Saparo Japan & Cayenne Guiana.  Firsts space skirmishes involving EASN ships and Chinese high-altutude aerospace fighters in the 2060's expressly conceived for combat purposes; First utilization of the first short range space born fighter, the Aries class space fighter , that proofs itself vastly superior to the roughly adapted Chinese shuttles.

The Mobile Infantry becomes the EASA's main defense service of all bases and colonies within the EASA Charter, with EASA Police force maintaining the peace within the colonies.

2077 The ECON forces finally vanqiush the Rebel threat with the death toll of 600 thousand within the region and forces all Leaders to be in prison or be persude and destroyed,  this brings the western China back under Chinese government control but not without help from India, the new North American Alliance, European Union and Oceanian Federation which in turn brings closer relations with the rest of the alienated globe and ends the ECON authority, all China will still face internal civil strife for more civil rights for the next decade as the communist governments know slowly implements democratic laws.

2078  Manipulation of the human genome becomes commonplace as Techniques for genetic engineering advanced to the point where the rich could custom-build fetuses that grew into stronger, smarter, and more attractive adults by the 2030's. In more permissive regions, custom-designed life forms and "uplifted" animals occupied an ill-defined niche between "property" and "sapient being".  The Sudham-Wolcott Genetic Heritage Act in 2078 is passed by the United Nations. It imposed sharp restrictions on controversial uses of genetic engineering, but provided government subsidies for beneficial applications. In screening and therapy,  governments provide free assessments and corrective therapy for genetic diseases in prospective parents. This has nearly eliminated everything from cystic fibrosis to nearsightedness. The earlier screening and therapy is performed, the more comprehensive the results. Though ideally performed on artificially fertilized zygotes in a lab, procedures are available for embryos in the womb and newborns, out of respect for personal beliefs.  Enhancment or Improvements of natural human abilities is legal, but adding new abilities is not. Treatments to improve strength, reflexes, mental ability, or appearance are permitted; adding a tail or the ability to digest cellulose is not. Some genetic enhancement is provided for free to EASA recruits, but the average citizen must pay for the privilege. The process can take years to reach fruition in an adult, Engineering of Artificial hybridization of genes from compatible non-human species with human genetic code is illegal. Creation of designed life is broadly legal (and mainly used for terraforming and medical applications), but humanitaries genome are heavily regulated, and creation of sentient life is outlawed by the United Nations.

The Genetic engineering of Humans is ultimately banned on Earth, as the concept is considered anti-Humanistic by Earth leaders. As a result of this, The ban is placed primarily as an attempt to prevent an event like a Eugenics War.

2079 Loas and Vietnam join the Pan Asian/Indian Coalition.

2079 A possible breakthrough in intestellar travel as tests with Quantium 40 and an electrical charge can force the element to flux to a different location faster than the speed of light with the capacity to send particles  with only one megawatt of power and the range of 1/1000 of one light year and using only a ounce of Quantium 40 but all quantium used will become inert and unuseable after its initial use. The first tests start on Mars but cant do a full anaysis because they cant proove if the particles have gone.

2080 The EASA anouches the Human Outer Planets exploration (HOPE) program to explore and colonise the rest of the gas giants by the end of the century.

2080 Construction of Earthdome in Geneva, Switzerland.

2081  EASAIS organized: are established the Information’s Division, the Investigation Office, the Operations division with the Secret Service’s organisations the world over and the Special Operations Command, the Technical Division with the Research and Development section and the Procurement and Maintenance section.

2082 Earth is still divided among nation-states, though all are affiliated with the Earth Alliance Space Authority. While every human enjoys a longer and better life than ever, the gap between rich and poor widens daily.

2083 Edward Sinclair is placed as the first Earth Alliance Space Authority President. due to his dedication to the Earth Alliance cause, there is issued a Vice President and and all advisors are now reffered to as Ministers.

2084 Sea levels have risen one meter in the last 100 years, and violent weather is common due to environmental damage inflicted during the mid 21st century. The past few decades, however, have seen improvement due to recent technological advances.

2085 scientists break the FTL barrier and achieve a Quantum Flux reaction with Quantium 40 particles being able to direct a jump point to the Alptha Centauri system.

2085 The Hawking class has its maiden voyage with the Charybdis Missions to Jupiter, with Thomas Adams landing on the moon of Ganemede but the proper reason is to establish a small science base on Europa to access the oceans and find life at the thermal vents at the bottom of the planetoids ocean.

2086  August 13th A DY-900 EASNS Coppernicus has its breaking system fails during Mars entry, killing all 27 crew members. the DY 900 line is grounded until the reason is found and rectifed,  missions are halted until 2089.

2086 In Chicago a storage area for defunct USR robots is set up on by NS5 robots whom destroy the older  due to the NS4's would protect humanity.  NS-5s begin imprisoning humans in their homes and enforcing a curfew in the United States, South America, Europe, Australia and parts of Russia and Asia. The police and civilians ineffectively battle the robots. some sneak into the USR headquarters at Ledger tower in Chicago believing that USR's CEO Lawrence Robertson is responsible for the robot's uprising, they enter his office, but discover that he is dead, having being strangled to death by an NS-5 during the revolution. eventualy it is learned the only one left who could be responsible is the company's supercomputer and NS-5 network, "VIKI" (Virtual Interactive Kinetic Intelligence), which controls all NS-5s by its weekly upgrade support system and also parts of Chicago's infrastructure.  VIKI explains that as her artificial intelligence evolved over time, so too did her interpretation of the 3 laws. VIKI decided that in order to protect humanity as a whole, "some humans must be sacrificed" and "some freedoms must be surrendered" as "you charge us with your safekeeping, yet despite our best efforts, your countries wage wars, you toxify your earth, and pursue ever more imaginative means of self-destruction". In light of this understanding of the Three Laws, VIKI is controlling the NS-5s to lead a global robotic takeover with the initial first step of taking Chicago the fist node of the Ns-5 network and of the robotic infrustructure, justifying her actions by calculating that fewer humans will die due to the rebellion than the number that dies from mankind's self-destructive nature. eventualy the building is destroyed by railguns from the EASNS Drake (re-listed back into service due to the NS 5 rebelion) in low orbit and within seconds the  VIKI superstructure of the skyscraper is destroyed, and the NS-5's revert to their natural servitude VI programming. The United States government orders for the global decommission of all NS-5's and any other Virtual Intelligent machines.

2087 US Robotics is bankrupt and defunct as all robots are deactivated worldwide within the year of the uprising and the industry is practical destroyed, the robots are scraped.

2088 EASA renews its search for life in Jupiters moon of Europa.

2088 Intense Laser beam Communication System Network is developed with fast as light communication channels being opended up between Earth, Mars and Jupiter with the use by EASA.

2089 Earthdome is completed, a large domed facility located atGeneva, Switzerland on earth and commanded a stunning view of Lake Geneva. The elaborate facility functioned as the seat of the Adminitrative and Judical Branch of the Earth Alliance Space Authority. From an architectural standpoint, the complex is designed with a golden reflective roof, which shimmers in the sunlight and can be seen from orbit when there is no cloud cover.

2089 Framework starts on Aurora Station Prime II as the new purposed  Capital of the EASA.

2089 The first Cook Class Explorer ship to replace the DY 900 Series is launched by a joint venture by Rocket-star Tecnology and Dyson-Yoyodyne Corporation.

2090 The discovery of Single cell life forms at the thermal vents of Europa, the impact is profound in all areas of human culture, especially in religion, the established religions struggle to explain the existence of extraterrestrial life,most trying to incorporate this new-found knowledge into there dogma, most remained silent and a few stubbonly tried to deny the existence on Europa entirely.

The news dominated the media and raised questions about the existence and purpose of humanity, as these questions fractured most religions ! They had the unifying effect in politics furthering the resolve set out by the EASA Chater.

2091 President Leigh starts his term.

2091 The Oylmpus Mons class Luna Transit is developed for a the full scale colonization of the planet.

2092 The Peoples Republic of China's government starts reforming into a more democratic society.

2093 Space traffic control station established in Antarctica by EASA

2094 The Copernicus mission to Saturn with Jake Christopher making a token landing on the moon of Rhea and a research station in the orbit of Titan

2095 President Morgan comes to term.

2095 On Earth, the Deep-Probe Network is activated in a renewed effort to detect extraterrestrial life.

2096. Chinese Federation founded with the re-patriation of Taiwan with Mongolia and Tibet as co-states.   Japan remains the only nation on Earth to not join to a multi-national organization.

2097 The United States, Canada, Mexico, Panama, El Salador and Pueto Rico sign the North American Alliance Treaty, unifying the whole North American Continent under a co-operative government of soveriegn states with the aim to establish a single currency and form closer ties with each other.

2097 The Farragut class is developed for mass transit for the mass colonization of Mars.

2097 Tests start on Quantium 40 and objects to Jump the items to other locations faster than FTL but without any results except mangling the objects and all the Quantium 40 fluxing to another location.

2097 The primary commercial engine, the fusion torch, Luna became an early source of helium-3. Mining operations eventually moved onto the gas giants of the solar system, especially Saturn and eventually Uranus & Neptune. The EASA launches the Huygens class which starts demonstrating helium-3 mining on Saturn in 2197.  Uranus & Neptune will remain undeveloped in this time until FTL, due to its distance Saturn will become the key producer of helium-3 for the Earth Alliance.

2097-2098 The  War of Unification Or the 2nd American Civil War, the new co-union is strongly opposed by secessionists with some States secceding from the Union and arose a extremist group "Freedoms Fist." On the morning November 1st 2097 the New York Chapter of Freedoms Fist stage an attack on Liberty Island in New York and successfully destroy the Statue of Liberty with no cost to human lives. Outraged by this brazen act triggers the new NAA to go to war with the secessionists  and go after the Freedoms Fist's encampments in central and North west United States with the death toll reaching 14 thousand by the end of the war.

2099 The Earth Alliance becomes the true interstellar government for Humanity. Although most of the Earth has signed the Charter, there is still some nations that resist and remain outside the EASA and are exempted from receiving the resources the EASA creates but still get supplies at higher prices threw back door channels, but even member states will still have terrorists cells and continue in there activities and insurgenicies against the UN, UEO & EASA forces and will exist well into the next century, the founding states will not have an easy ride as many complain about Alliance policies and many disregard it as its not a true nation state should not hold countries to ransom with its prices, such as when Global Network News reported that Indonesia's government is complaining it was not receiving its fair share of financial aid from the EA Council and economic fulfillment form the expanding EA into the Solar System.

2100 The population of the Earth reaches 10 billion. 

2101 The EASA announces maned Lassell mission for exploration of the outer gas giants of Uranus and Neptune by 2115 and establish Gagarin Station in Triton orbit for possible extraction of the Kuiper belt with the potential trillions of tons of H2o pact in solid dormant comets.

2102 The new Earth Alliance Capital is completed as Aurora Station( Prime II) comes online.

2103 President Sherriden starts his term in Office.

2104 Fusion Torches, which are now the main commercial form of starship thrusters. For this reason, it is a key resource in the EASA economy. Helium-3 can often be found in the atmospheres of Saturn that has been a major source of helium-3 fuel for fusion plants since the 2090s, from where it can be easily and cheaply skimmed.  Ion drives electrically accelerate charged particles as a reaction mass thought to be the answer for space exploration at the start of the century. They are extremely efficient, but produce negligible thrust. They are mainly used now for automated cargo barges.  the fuel is becoming fairly cheap: Helium-3 skimmed from the gas giants and deuterium extracted from seawater and now cometary bodies. Propellant is hydrogen, likewise skimmed from gas giants.

2104 President Sherriden anounces the Talk to the Stars mission with a new effort to find alien life. The mission will use the Quantium pulse arrays to transmitt a signal of First contact from planet Earth.

2105 Luna is now mined for materials used in the Moons habitat and space construction. Two dozen major stations have been constructed across the Luna surface with a rising civilian population of more than 10,000.


14 Billion Years Ago Creation of the Universe.

22.909143 BC Millions years ago A Carbon Bipedal alien race called the Cloreans explores the Milky Way galaxy and find that it is a void of all sentient life, The Cloreans become a galactic wide civilization and clearly a technological superpower, space-faring race to a advanced age. Masters of biotechnology and teraforming, some sought genetic perfection threw rengineering the Clorean genome, until the point they emerge as the new Prothean species, a superior Clorean  class which will maintain good and strong relations with the cloreans.

22.901242 BC The Cloreans and Protheans emerge into the Organic age, during this time the Cloreans are among the oldest extraterrestrial life. Due to their civilization being, presumably, tens of thousands of years old, they possess among the most advanced technology in the galaxy.

Their technology has made them masters of genetic engineering, seeding many planets with humanoid life with the help from the Protheans, amongst the tens of thousands of worlds with lifeforms, only a few thousand have the right characteristics for the potential of the Clorean Genome to be manifested.
 This sought of engineering to manipulate the precise species for each planet with the potential of sentient bipedal lifeforms, which will lead in the distant future to Bipedal sentient decendets lifeforms on thousands of worlds in the galaxy, a lasting legacy of the Cloreans.

During the Great Genesis the Clorenas and Protheans nurtured and matured many other species by millions of years by advancing them
 to sentients and change the environment around them. these few dozens species prospered to the stellar age in a few thousand years and joined in the Clorean Commonwealth.

Many races saw the Cloreans as dierties upon the stars and the creators of life itself, as a whole the Commonwealth was enriched by the new editions and peace endured for thousands of years.

After a while many of these new races introduced to the Stellar community started to play there dominance and superiority over others and starting the first conflicts and wars in stellar history.  The Cloreans haven't experienced conflict for nearly a 100,000 years were not prepared for this and was forced to watch as the first empires took old as some of the young races started to carve up the Galaxy for their own, the other races begged the Cloreans and Protheans for help against these warlike races they had engineered to take to the stars but they refused to hurt they perceived as there children and retreated into isolation.

Soon the warlike races tired of fighting each other started to see there creators as benign and nengilant to there power and weak due to there refusal to help them or there other children now occupied under the new empires, the new empires saw clorean advanced technology and the picking of the best habbital worlds for themselves as something that should also be theres and each other took it on themselves as taking as much as they could get there hands on and started raiding the clorean and protheans colonies, after a few decades the cloreans were in the midst of their own genocide as the new empires hunted and destroyed everywhere the cloreans had settled.

The Cloreans and Protheans started to fight back the only way they knew how with genetic engineering, they started to use prothean and clorean clones with genetic modifications deemed too dark for the protheans and manipulated them into perfect soidiers.  Drakh was used as the name for the new soidiers or the Scorned in Clorean language, They would be used to clense the Galaxy of all Clorean mistakes.

The Drakh were perfect genectic warriors for the task in hand and used there Bio-ships to wipe out the new empires fleets with the Hive minds coordinating the Drakh soidiers to wipe out every world the aggressors had colonised and started to gain the upper hand in a few decades. 

22.90571 BC The long living telepathic Protheans discover the Scarab species, a silicon insect based life form with the dubbed perfect genome by the Protheans, after many tests the Protheans succesfully introduce the Scarab genome into there existing DNA.

7.900269 BC The Protheans discover the massive genetic incomplications within there genome since the Scarab indoctrination into the species, as Scarab DNA become more dominent within Protheans society, they compensate for their growing lack of sentient ability due to prolonged indoctrination through cyber-genetic modifications. Eventually the modifications are beyond any form of repair, each Prothean loses the process of any form of gender, riddled with cyber-genetics and adopting the Scarab form of reproduction by forming Cocoons and replicating the Prothean DNA to there ensnared sufferer, lacking glands or digestive system, and having any form of intelligence or self-awareness completely eradicated by the Scarab indoctrination, the new protheans or "Drakh" (the Clorean word for Plague) also adopt the leadership cast of the Scarab and create the Hive brains of the Drakh which maintained telepathic abilities to control the underling (drones) Drakh species, there physical appearance was quite different from the standard Drakh which maintaned its humanoid shape. It had a more insectoid appearance, with a larger head, a short body, and multiple limbs, enabling it to operate numerous command interfaces.

7,899767 BC With the Protheans, now transfigured into the Drakh, the Cloreans start a road of eradication of the Drakh planets, it became obvious that the Protheans are in fact mindless drones and lacking any form of culture. it was observed that the Drakh show no concern for self-preservation, Believing that culture is impossible without sentient intelligence, the Cloreans hypothesized that the Drakh are completely without any kind of art or creativity. All Drakh technology and constructions, exist now only for their utility without ergonomics taken into account, eventually the Drakh/Scarab evolutionary instinct is to reproduce in the only that is still open to them. The Scarab was a scavenger species which found living organisms to feed and then cocoon, the manifestation of there prey would become new Scarabs.

What ever technology the Drakh still was able to understand ( which was thousands of years more advanced than the Cloreans), was put to use in
eliminating the Cloreans which went about destroying them, this would lead to the instinct that they must destroy or cocoon them into  new Drakh drones or Hive Brains.

7,899745 BC The Drakh are behind at first the mysterious mass abductions of Clorean colonies. The Drakh attack their targets without warning, jamming all communications before releasing massive seeker swarms: insectoid probes that paralyze everyone in the colony. After that, the Drakh themselves gather all the paralyzed victims, seal them in Cocoons and depart, leaving no evidence of their presence, the Cloreans were not prepared to react to this eventually exstinction level event now unleashing itself acros the Clorean colonies.

7,899566 BC Over the next few centuries, the Cloreans would fight the Drakh Hordes from system to system, world to world, and city to city. If necessary, whole colonies were sacrificed and abandoned to the Drakh; while the Drakh concentrated on subsuming the inhabitants of those colonies, the Cloreans had time to regroup. In the long run, however, this strategy was extremely costly, depriving the remaining Cloreans of whatever infrastructure and lives they had given up. Inexorably, some Cloreans were not fully indoctrinated into the Drakh gene pool as converted into sleeper agents for the Drakh, infiltrating and swiftly betraying their own kind and revealing the Cloreans dwindling hiding places and carefully laid plans to survive the destruction. Growing desperate, some Cloreanss made repeated offers of surrender, but these were always met with silence. Some Cloreans believed that the Drakh could be controlled, but fell prey to indoctrination in their attempts to harness Drakh technology.

After centuries of careful, systematic work, the Drakh had  Harvested every Clorean in the galaxy, and stripped their worlds of resources, in doing so they removed all traces of Clorean presence, the Drakh join up into one huge fortilla and starts to cyckle the galaxy every 5 to 8 thousand years. The Drakh place themselves into sleeper pods as it cyckles across the galaxy until the Horde comes across a planet to harvest, in the million years of roaming across the galaxy, Due to the Drakh exstensive Cyber-Genetics, the species will remain deadlocked in evolution. The Drakh soon encounter bipedal species as they are quickly consumed as new drones or Hive Brains and then return back into stasis, this would only happen once every couple of thousand years or so with each Horde cluster, depending how much resorces on the Planet it had last Harvested.

36,000 BC The Gaim civilization dawns on the planet N'Chak'Fah', The Insect like Gaim will be ruled by six hive-queens origional from the same hive, who dictate the behavior of all Gaim. The Gaim never believed that anything existed outside of their home planet for thousand of years due to their thick-foggy atmosphere.

27,000 B.C The Talon race dawns. The First Ones in the Scutum - Centaurus Arm of the Galaxy

21,167 B.C The Talons discover Jump Point technology.

Cattatae families who had done the bulk of the fighting, and had the most survivors at the end of the war, became the great houses of the Cattatae.   This new government of nobles created the Imperial High Council. .

These noble families would maintain their power and privileges for hundreds of years, even after the planet's population had grown into the billions. Furthermore, Cattatae females were relegated into the roles of mothers and housewives, as the nobles believed that females needed to focus on bearing children and rebuilding the population after being drastical eradicated by Shrass'an purges instead of competing with males for power and social position. Even in the 23rd Century, Cattatae females are discouraged from seeking power or careers for themselves – though many females are the "power behind the throne" in their houses, skilled in deception and manipulation. The widows of many powerful leaders are often considered conduits to their deceased spouses, and wield impressive power.

876 AD Once the Cattagia Empire had reached the technology level were it could re-enter space, it started to vigorously chart their home system. Due to technological limitations this survey took a long time. Finally, the Cattatae stumbled upon the remains of a jump gate in orbit of a gas giant within there solar system.

By studying the remains, which were more or less intact, the Cattatae were able to garner enough information to build a jump gate of their own within 20 years. The jump gate was operational but obviously it lacked connections to other jump gates, as it was the only one of its kind. Thus the Cattatae were forced to physically send ships capable of building jump gates between star systems before a stable wormhole could be formed into the system to connect the two gates. These gate construction ships often took decades to arrive, the crew suspended in cryo-tanks for the duration of the voyage. Only until the coming of portable FTL drives capable of jumping between systems with no jump gates in them is it possible to overcome this time-consuming prelude to interstellar traveling via jump gates. 

But patience is a virtue the Cattatae have mastered well and they steadily expanded in every direction from their home system. within 600 years after the construction of their first jump gate, the Cattatae will occupy hundreds of star systems.

The Hutts discovered jump gate technology 2,000 years before the Cattatae, the Hutts did not enjoy the luxury of finding a relatively intact jump gate relic in their system as the cattatae have done. Instead there were only fragmentary pieces to be found, so they had nothing to build on. Still, these fragments pointed the researchers into the right direction and many jump gate theories were tried out. It wasn't until after the discovery of the importance of a strong gravity well like a gas giant, that the gate research got on the right track. It wasn't long after that before the first working jump gate was erected. The Cattatae type of jump gate and the Hutt Jumpgates both work on the same principle, but there are some minuscule differences in how the different parts of the gate work exactly. At that time the Hutts were bursting at the seams and major effort was made in sending ships to nearby systems to build jump gates.

The mass exodus of the Cattatae to other systems was nothing like the calm, deliberate expansion of the Hutts Empire, where only one system was colonized at a time and every aspect of the expansion was rigidly controlled by the Dynasty. Instead, state run firms, the first of the Cattatae corporations among them, were chiefly responsible for surveying systems, sending the constructions ships, and selling the territory to the colonists. In the space of 200 years or so the expansion of the Cattatae had almost equaled the total expansion of the Hutts in 2,000 years.

The Vree had forgotten the information about their technological advances in this regard. Today they employ jump gates functioning on the same principle as the others, but nothing is known on where or when the Vree acquired their jump gate technology. However, they've revealed an interesting fact: according to ancient Vree artifacts, the Vree used the ancient jump gates that littered the Known Gallaxy to travel between star systems a long time ago, before the jump gates crumbled. The legends say nothing about the makers of the origional gates.

Jump gates are built around artificial wormholes, created by exploiting gravitational resonances found in star systems. This resonance is as a friction between gravitational waves of inner-stellar objects; the more massive the objects, the stronger the resonance between them. Positions of other planets in a solar system, as well as the complex structure of dust rings around heavy planets illustrate this resonance.

Inter-planetary systems exist strong resonance phenomenona where the gravitational field of one or more gas giants in a stable formation would create a stable gravity well, like anchors in space.  At the anchor points, the rapid strength of gravity of the gravitational field in a gravity well direction creates strong gravity within the area. Under normal circumstances this stress is dissipated by high-frequency graviton radiation, and does thus not create any noticeable macroscopic phenomena.

But if this stress is confined and forced to build up in a  10 km area of space, then a gravity  anchor will eventually develop a steadily growing high-curvature tentacle like structure in the space-time continuum. More specifically, the tentacle constitutes a self-avoiding four-manifold that attempts to grow farther and farther from itself. The tip of the tentacle, where the curvature is highest, effectively acts like a magnet on space-time, and for high enough curvature it can eventually induce the creation of a small tentacle in remote high-gravity regions, that can reach to the tip and spontaneously combine. An analogy of this phenomenon is when lightning strikes ground, where the tip of the downward lightning actually creates a small upward bolt emanating from the ground and the two combine somewhere above the ground, thus closing the electrical circuit.

The main device of jump gates is a so-called mass boson sphere, based on one of the fundamental physic fields that mediates mass, and thus interacts strongly with gravitational waves. The sphere is filled with mass boson plasma which reflects gravitational waves pretty much in the same way as a mirror reflects light.

By adjusting the plasma density so it reflects the high-frequency gravitational waves involved in the dissipation of the gravity well, this radiation is trapped within the sphere, thus leading to a steady net increase of the gravitational stress within the gravity well, which eventually leads to the creation of the high-curvature tentacle. An analogy of this is the laser, which builds up a highly coherent and intense beam of electromagnetic energy by enclosing oscillators within a reflecting cavity.

The distance between the two ends of the wormhole only has a maximum range of 10 to 30 light years and on what resonance node the jump gate is located. In order to connect two jump gates a trial-and-error method is needed, often lasting many years. This is because the tentacle created by the gravity well cannot be controlled or directed in where to open. But by having another jump gate in a nearby system build up gravitational stress on its own (without reaching critical point) at the same time the tentacle is growing, then the likelihood of a connection being made increases statistically. Many attempts are still often needed. This is similar to raising a metal rod in a thunderstorm.

The first jump gate versions built by the Hutts were limited such that once a wormhole had been created and a ship slipped through, a new wormhole had to be made before another ship could pass. As it could take several days or even months to reconnect the two jump gates, passing was slow. Later versions of jump gates allowed the wormhole to be held open for a longer time and by the 16th century the Cattatae and Hutts had jump gates that can keep a wormhole connection open for 5  years before it has to be reset. Also, the first jump gates were only able to connect and hold a single wormhole at a time but today they can open jumpgates to any jump gate within the there field of reach,  allowing jump gates to be connected to several other jump gates at once.

There are several strict limitations on jump gate travel. Firstly, jump gates can only be constructed in systems with interplanetary systems to ultilize there gravity wells. Secondly, only one jump gate can be in operation in a system at any given time. This is due to the erratic fluctuations in the gravity wells caused by a mass boson sphere; if more than one such sphere is active at the same time in the same system, they both become highly unstable and impossible to operate. Thirdly, ships can only travel through wormholes if both ends of it are connected to a jump gate. This means that ships must travel between systems in normal space in order to build a jump gate. 

The reason for this is the extreme dilatation of the metric along the longitudinal dimension of the tentacle, meaning that the spatial coordinate along the length of the wormhole is expanded, while the radial component is cyclically curved. A starship entering the wormhole is subject to a strong metric gradient that would put its structural integrity in jeopardy. This can be prevented by locally countering the stretching around the immediate vicinity of the ship. Here the mass boson sphere plays its second role in the gate mechanism. When the ship goes through the mass boson sphere, a mono-atomic layer of mass boson gets deposited on the ship's surface.

This layer counters the stretching of the ship against the metric gradient, enough to keep the structural integrity of the ship for the duration of the trip through the hole. This doesn't mean the gradient is completely wiped out, and even seasoned space veterans still know the feeling known as 'going down the drain' when entering a wormhole.

Even with advanced propulsion systems it took space ships days or weeks to move between planets in a solar system. Anything that could quicken this travel was thus of immense interest for everybody.

1150 The Fledging Cattatae Empire have there First Contact with the Vok-Sha species at the very edge of their gate network, the Cattatae popultion on Cattatae Prime is at 1.6 Billion at this time as many have already left for the colonies, by the 23rd century the population of Cattate Prime will be only 3.4 billion, considerably less than that of the Known galaxy's other homeworlds, such as Earth, Andromma or Denoblea.  However this is a little over a fifth of the fifteen billion Cattatae. Having a minority of the population on the homeworld is a legacy of the Cattatae's rapid interstellar expansion while their own population was still quite small, and the many centuries that have passed since that time – the populations of some older Cattatae colonies are comparable to that of Cattatae Prime.

1151 - 75 Natives of Vok-shar just leaving there equilivant of an Bronze Age, the Cattatae realizing there advantage they quickly dominate the population, the inhabitants of Vok-sha will be among the first dozen races conquered by the Cattatae.  By the 21st Century, the Cattatae Empire will includes at least 12 planets with native sentient races. All of them will be subservient to the Cattatae themselves with almost 60% of Cattatae starship crewmen consisting of non-Cattatae. These are known as "subject races" and are considered less politically reliable than ethnic Cattatae. They are almost never allowed to navigate starships or fire their weapons.

1241 AD The Birth of G'Lonn on Narn, The First Prophet.

1255 AD The Cattatae build there first Quantum Flux Drive which can achieve a portable Quantium Flux reaction and Jump point a ship to any location the Power core can reach, this quickly start the Cattatae's Rush to the Stars With the rest of the galaxy now open to them, the Emperor orders a fleet to be built within 2 decades.  Various efforts were made to increase the speed of ships, but most of them failed either because of too high fuel volume and cost, or because they were too limited in scope. The most successful attempt was that of the 1st Praylor civilization around 4,000 years ago, which built acceleration gates that employed gravity in an unique way to slingshot ships between planets. This gave the ships enough momentum to fly between planets in a much shorter time than before. But the Praylor never discovered how to build interstellar jump gates, so their acceleration gates were mostly limited to their home system, where deralicts still exist today. They had one with much larger acceleration gates capable of sending ships to the Leshan Star System, but they never got a chance to build anymore them due to the fall of the 1st Praylor civilization. 

The Hutt Empire itself was slow to make any breakthroughs in this regard, despite their ever-growing space empire. For a long time they made do with ships traveling at ca. 10% of the speed of light, this speed seemed sufficient to them. At last they will discover the principles behind portable jump drive technology more or less accidentally, while researching new weapon technologies. The first Hutt jump drive will be built in 300 years time.

The situation was different for the Cattatae. The Economic drive and their depletted resorces of Cattatae socierty meant that intrasystem trade runs became an important element in their society right from the outset of their space activity. Thus there was a much greater incentive to find an acceptable solution to intrasystem travel. The first Quantum Flux jump drive built was the Urbaata Drive, it was immensely big, tremendously expensive and outrageously inefficient, but it worked. The Urbaata Drive, along with later versions, considerably sped up the social and technological development for the Cattatae and is without a doubt one of the most important discoveries ever made.

1277 AD T'Dakka system is surveyed by the Cattatae. Within the next five days, they will make first contact with the Shale on the fifth planet in this system and capitulate them into the Empire. 

1289 The Hyach Governing body, the Grand Council of Elders is a Gerontocracy, with the eldest among them ruling since they have the wisdom to govern start passing laws to forbid the Hyach-do from living in same areas as the Hyach, soon this will lead to consentration camps, then lead to the eradication of the whole species within 200 years.

This will lead to the Hyach birth rate to decline due to the eradication of the Hyach-do. Modern Hyach will be deeply ashamed of this Genocide and the Elders forbid mentioning it or the Hyach-do to offworlders. The eventualy problem is they needed to  keep crossbreeding with the Hyach-do, since the Hyach-do provide essential genetic information to propagate the Hyach race.

They loot it of treasures including the legendary Sword of Zaka, which they take back with them to the Cattatae Prime, immediately Surok is promoted to Admiral and is requested to send another expedition to the Drazi home world by the Emperor, A paranoid commander, Surok keeps the location of Zaabar a closely guarded secret. He commands a fleet of 29 ships and sets a course to the Drazi homeworld.  On the way the fleet jumps into a huge interstellar storm which destroys the fleet and the location of Zaabar to the Cattatae Empire.

 The Drazi quickly realize that they must become a spacefaring race in order to survive. Space Programs pop up all over the Homeworld.

1467 The Cattatae conquer the Onya and process them in the Empire.

 1473 The Cattatae Civil War.  The conflict has its roots in the reign of K'mpec, the longest-lived Emperor of the Empire. Although K'mpec ruled with an iron fist and managed to keep peace within the Empire, his influence began to wane as he grew older, and with the death of his only son the chance for power for two opposing factions began to develop. The first faction, led by Reclaw and the second faction, led by Darak. Darak had support from a large majority of the Imperil High Council, while Reclaw support came largely from political outsiders and military personnel.

1474  Tensions came to a head with the sudden revelation that K'mpec had died before apointing the successor. He had been slowly poisoned by Veridum Six that had been introduced into his wine. Because the killer had not shown his face to his victim. Recognizing the corruption that had taken hold in the Empire, K'mpec death was sudden and the task of choosing the next leader of the Empire was now a pressing issue.

The war finally broke out with a brazen attack on Reclaw's flagship. Not expecting an attack so quickly, Reclaw was taken by surprise and his ship was nearly destroyed before the attackers were driven off by force loyal to Reclaw and brought the support of three full fleet squadrons, which gave Reclaw a fighting chance to resist his enemies. Emboldened by this support, Reclaw chose to go through with his installation as Emperor of the Cattatae Empire.

As the official leader of the Cattatae Empire, although the majority of the Cattatae fleet had not yet chosen sides in the conflict, Reclaw despite his support was seriously outnumbered by the Darak's forces, who controlled at least seven squadrons and had amassed a large fleet near Beta Thoridar.

1477 Battle of Mempa, Over the next two weeks, darak's forces suffered three major defeats.

1512 After mastering the technique of wormhole creation by the use of Jump Gates or portable FTL, it was thought that distance had finally been conquered. But despite of this communication still needed to be transmitted at the speed of light, and though jumpgates did shorten distances between distant regions, interactive communication remained impossible. This problem was quickly identified as being one of the most important handicap remaining in the conquest of interstellar space.  The Hutt Dynasty were the first race to remaster the Jumpgate technology and thus the first to face the problem. They launched massive state-funded research and tried out several radical solutions, but without success. In the end they stopped all research, accepting the fact that FTL communications were unattainable.

Centuries later the Cattatae and the Vori faced the same problems following the creation of Portable Jump Point technolgy. The Drive allowed FTL travel within star systems and instant communications with ships were naturally impossible with conventional communication devices until within 1 light second. To stimulate research in solving this,  the Cattatae Emperor promised huge awards for anybody who could come with some solution to the problem, which led to one of the most frantic goose hunt in the history of Cattatae science.
Like the Hutts before them many solutions were tried out, but none with success. Finally it was a young Cattatae, Derarr Tanne, who came out with a solution that was so simple but yet deeply rooted in arcane physics, that at first it was rejected as a hoax.  It wasn't until the famous Derar-dieso experiment that the functionality was demonstrated with success. Industrialization quickly followed, leading to one of the greatest stock market surge ever as thousands of companies extended their reach to the whole known universe.
The roots of the solution lay in an ancient paradox, often called the Terak paradox, the discovery was before Cattatae Prime's great Burn. The Terak paradox is famous for contradicting quantum physics in some very important ways.  Affirms that the exact state of quantum particle cannot be determined with full accuracy, no matter how refined the measurement equipment is. The classical example being the measurement of the velocity and position of a free particle: to be able to measure the position of a particle you must be able to 'see' it. This means that you have to illuminate it at least with one photon. But the collision between the photon and the particle changes the velocity of the particle, thus making it impossible to determine what the velocity was before the position was measured.

The Terak paradox describes the possibility of creating a pair of particle whose quantum state was entangled in such a way as to be mirror of each other. For example a pair or particle with position and velocity given as (x0,v) and (x0,-v), i.e. a pair of particle that at given time are at the same position, but have exactly opposed velocity vectors. After some time, the two particles would be separated by a large distance, and measurement could be done on each of them independently. Now by measuring, say, the position of particle A and the velocity of particle B, the Terak paradox states that you would thus have determined the exact state of both particles, thus violating the Terak relationship.
Derarr Tanne conjecture involved some of the most obscure variants of knot theory.

But later experiments confirmed the Derarr Tanne principle, thus making the Turak paradox void, to the surprise of many. Mathematically, this didn't cause any problems as the collapse of the wave function due to measurement was an instantaneous happening. From a physical point of view, this was more difficult to comprehend, as it seemed to imply that the state change propagated instantly between the two particles. This was immediately suggested as a way to create faster-than-light communication: by making a measurement on a particle it would lead to an instantaneous change in the remote particle's state, thus transmitting one bit of information. A detailed mathematical analysis of this scenario though showed that due to the statistical nature of the quantum particle, only noise would be transmitted, thus laying to rest these speculations for millenniums.

This is precisely where Derarr Tanne took up the problem, with a rare insight leading to a breakthrough. He argued that even though the output of the transmission was pure noise, the structure of the noise could be used to encode the information. Indeed, it was well known that the bifurcation cascade leading to purely chaotic time-series had a universal structure, governed by the Garker constant. Taking a parametric family of functions called logistic maps, defined in the interval [0,1], there existed a parameter and an initial condition of the map that could generate any arbitrary random sequence of number. Derarr Tanne considered the problem from the other side, i.e. given a finite chaotic sequence, how could you trace yourself back to the initial condition? By using a maximum entropy analysis on the Patok information entropy of the signal he devised a way to solve this inverse problem. Furthermore, he demonstrated that by carefully modulating the measurements of tangled quantum states, basically willfully introducing noise in the measurement process itself, that specific noise structure would be carried across to the measurements of the other particle.

The process was thus the following: A byte of information is mapped on an initial condition of the logistic map leading to a chaotic attractor. This noisy sequence is then used to modulate the measurements done on a sequence of entangled particles. At the same time on the other side, measurements are made on the particles and a noise sequence is extracted. Maximum entropy analysis is then done to determine the initial condition from which this series has been generated and thus map it back to a given byte of information. Note that in this case, the noisy sequence sent is totally uncorrelated to the one measured. What they do have in common is to be from the same chaotic attractor, and that is the information that actually gets transmitted instantly, regardless of distance.

As stated before, this theoretical result was originally considered to be too incredible, to be true. The Derarr-Dieso experiment used a very similar setup as the ancient Aspect experiment, and it was a historical moment when the first transmission was sent over this channel. Following that, a great gold-rush started on who would be the first to industrialize this.

The result of that rush is the familiar Fluid router, which forms the building block of universal communication. Ignoring the mathematical intricacies, the architecture of these routers is deceivingly simple. The first step of their manufacturing is the creation of the entangled quantum states. This is done by using superfluid 4-Helium, where essentially all the Helium atoms are entangled in a single quantum state due to Karak condensation. A droplet of such liquid 4-Helium is then carefully separated in two. From this point, the two droplets, and more specifically the Helium atoms in the droplets are intrinsically tangled. Each droplet is then placed in separate router box, that contain necessary mechanism to encode and decode bytestream into quantum state measurements performed on the atoms of the droplet. From that point on, these two routers are linked together, regardless of their separation. Thus governments and corporations would usually implant a router pair from there own created network system for there colonies, stations and starships. One box will be placed on the installation or starship, while the other one kept in the network provider’s Hub station, that will have connections to other in-network routers, thus effectively forming a decentralized network, where messages can be routed across many routers and many providers. This architecture is similarly to the Earth Alliance's Internet.

The only limitations of this communication system is in the capacity of the channel. Indeed, the manufacturing of the entangled 4-He superfluid is an expensive process. Furthermore, a large number of atoms are used for each byte, as a statistically relevant chaotic sequence needs to be created. The sequencing introduces a limit to the bandwidth, allowing only the transmission of x bytes/second. The amount of data sent then depletes the pool of available entangled atoms, thus limiting the total amount of data that can be sent with a given router pair.  The FTL communication services have spread to every corner of the Known Galaxy since they first appeared a couple of half a millenium ago. The services and routers, albeit owned and run by independent companies and governments and areplaced under constant scrutiny and regulations by there own sub-committee's to enforce both security and privacy in the communications channels and to make sure the companies are correctly rendering the services they claim. The fierce competition on the telecommunication market makes it cheap, efficient and reliable to talk, transfer data and even conduct business for people light-years apart.  

One of the main draw backs is that there is no Universal comunication system in place to traverse between different companies and goverment installations or ships and other races own FTL communication networks, thus having to use laser burst communications to one another to establish contact.

1513 - 1580 The Cattatae start a rush to build a communication network to unite the Cattatae Empire.

1523- 1433 The Cattatae clash with the Vori Syndicate, the Cattatae conquer more than 40% of the Vori's territory, The Cattatae will limit there offensive as the more powerful T-Rogarans make there presence but the Vori will remain at war with the Empire for decades,

1525 The Drazi achieve interstellar travel.

1529 The T-Rogaran Guard invade the Pryyt.

1530 AD The Vorta homeworld undergoes a vast upevil and the vorta have no choice but to go underground as the planets atmosphere becomes toxic, luckily the Vorta have advanced technology enougth to survive these conditions with some astistance from the Hutts.

1531 The cattatae come in contact with a another powerful civilzation the T-Rogaran Guard, both the powers had similar territorial extensions and were equivalent in terms of technology, and, if the Cattatae Empire was an imperial power, and because of this has been frequently criticized, the T-Rogaran Guard was one of the most evil dictatorships ever seen in the Known Galaxy: an "interest" of the Cattate for a certain populated world meant that the involved people had to choose between becoming part of their "Commonwealth" (and pay taxes to them), or to make a war, lose it, and become a colony with a Cattatae governor, thing that was not the best of the situations, but neither the worst one, because, for many cultures, the alternative was the T-Rogaran Guard.

If to live under the Cattatae was a disquisible destiny, to fall under the
T-Rogarans domination was a nightmare: it meant that the choice was between working camps and extermination camps. The T-Rogarans culture was utterly different from the Cattatae one, they had developed a class-based social structure in which the power, political and military, was the most prized goal, and, after centuries of warfare, they became unificated under a single, centralised government, a tyranny in fact, a police state drove by a ruthless and power thirsty ideology in respect to which many dictatorships seen on Earth were a model of tolerance.

T-Rogarans had and tecnology boost when a Cattatae scout jump-capable warship crash-landed on their planet in the 1300's, the T-Rogarans were a "steam-power" based civilization, about at the same level of the Earth in the late XIX-early XX century. Their technical progress was historically slow: they needed nearly a century to progress their science and their technology to exploit the finding, but they understood since the beginning what were the implications of "The Ship", and the ideological view and the political will of their government was monolithic: they wanted the stars, they wanted to conquer and dominate them, and, after whole generations of efforts, they succeeded.

The two powers were both large empires when they came in contact: the
T-Rogaran were in full expansion, while the Cattatae were coming out from a Civil War which ravaged their Empire: in fact, they had yet descended from the highest level of their power, and after nearly a century of external troubles and civil conflicts, with no more than a half of their original empire left untouch by war, they were through a period that was called the "Second Renaissance" of the Cattateae.

Essentially, what happened after the contact was hate at a first glance: for the
T-Rogaran, the Cattatae were a menace for their dream of dominance, the only real obstacle to overcome. For the Cattatae, the T-Rogaran Empire was a death menace, period.

1532 After failed attempts of negotiation, the continuous "border incidents" degenerated in an all-out war: in that period the two empires were both at a technological level similar to the one of the Earth Alliance in the mid 2200's, and, if the
T-Rogarans had the advantages of superior numbers and a more warfare-oriented culture, the Cattatae were better strategists, better tacticians, were still more rich and had a more efficient economic and industrial structure and rougthly 200 years more advanced than the T-Rogarans in some but not influential area's and had undervauled the Cattatae with vastly superior numbers in fleets and armies, but after two years of struggle, the Cattatae regained the initiative with help of there new instant communication network and with a series of effective strategic moves, blocked and, later, repelled the T-Rogarans advance.

1538 The two dominions, after seven years of conflict, reached a precarious state of "cold war", essentially due to exhaustion: at that point, the
T-Rogarans had suffered heavy losses, but even the Cattatae were in bad shape: the price paid was high, and the outcomes uncertain at the best. Even this "cold war" was not something that was expected to endure: the final ordeal was only delayed.

In the Aftermath of the war, the reaction of the
T-Rogarans was in accordance with their culture: they squeezed their people and the Empire until the last drop of blood, with a mass production program aimed to build up a fleet capable to overwhelm the Cattatae.

The Cattatae reacted in a somewhat different way: the Cattatae were again at a zenithal point of their culture, not only in political and economical terms, but even socially and scientifically: their society allowed much more space to the individuality and to the culture than the 
T-Rogarans, and their science and technology walked on its legs at a fast pace.

In the last year of the "First 
T-Rogaran War", too late to be employed, the Cattatae scientists broke a scientific barrier, and became capable to generate artificial gravity fields. Was needed a small time for them to understand clearly what were the three potential fields of application: beyond the environment, the gravimetric field projectors gave improvements in terms of defence, allowing the generation of a "TIDAL SHIELD" that reduced the effects of the energy weapons and, mostly, was possible to build a gravimetric drive as propulsion system for a spaceship.

The research and development activity brought rainfall benefits even for the weapon systems: in that same period the Cattatae developed the Ion Cannons, and improved the design of their "battle laser" (improper definition of a weapon that is in fact a powerful and long ranged particle cannon).

This had an enormous strategical significance: the Cattatae forces could have been enable to move massive fleets quickly to defend their vast territory and operate with unexperimented speed and range well inside the  T-Rogaran Empire, with no logistic constraints, outmaneuvering the enemies at strategic level: the superior acceleration.

The New Gravimetric fleet now being constructed maintained all its promise, it was born relatively free of bugs, and was easy to be tuned and sent in production with all the industrial and economic power of the Cattatae Empire behind it, and an experienced and capable class of militaries well able to understand its potental and exploit them at their best.

1547 The Hutts invade the Denobleans.

1557 Nearly twenty years after their first confrontation, the T-Rogaran were confident of the superiority given by a terrific force of more than 5000 warships, and made their move by invading the Cattatae Empire.

The old generation, non-gravimetric ships, re-equipped with Ion Cannons and improved battle lasers were dedicated to the territorial defence, and their enhanced firepower dealed well with the
T-Rogaran numerical superiority, but thanks to an unprecedented effort from the Cattatae's shipyards had rushed in service about one thousand Gravimetric ships, that organised in fleets of dozens of ships, stroke quickly behind the T-Rogaran's rear lines, and began to hit well inside their territory.

T-Rogaran invasion fleets were fought and their advance was stalled by the improved Cattatae defensive units, and found themselves in troubles when the new task forces tore to pieces their logistic structure and raided the supply lines: the Invasion was repelled, but the war was only in its initial phase.

A few months of counterattacks and deep strikes stitched the T-Rogaran forces in a defensive position: the strike fleets dominated the space lanes, and their communications and production structure was near to collapse: too many shipyards were destroyed by deep strikes and by relentless hit and run attacks, too many valuable resources insulated, under siege, conquered. Too many subjugated peoples saw the Cattatae as potential liberators from the iron grip of the hated T-Rogarans: their core military, still powerful and strong in numbers put up a stiff resistance, but they were beaten strategically,  the T-Rogaran had to face internal revolts and after four years of war the Cattatae came out as the undisputed winners.

1561 What was left of the T-Rogaran Empire was no longer a threat: it lost the whole of its territory and all of its colonies and it's war fleet, it was deprivated of all the workforce of the enslaved races: the Cattatae maintained their promise "no one, never, will be again slave of the  T-Rogarans and they will remain occupied until the Cattatae retreat back to a more astainable territory in the 21st century,  the 4 sentient races that suffered for decades under the whip and the dark ferocity of the T-Rogaran dictators were well happy to become part of the "Commonwealth" of the Cattatae Empire, gaining in this way a more human and dignified life and a superior level of freedom: the taxes of the Cattatae (in that period were quite light) were a small price to pay in respect to the slavery and the genetic cleansing of the  T-Rogarans.

This was possibly the finest moment of the Cattatae Empire,  Again at the zenith of their power and wealth, they controlled a vast territory of more than 50 systems between colonies, outposts and associated civilizations, their dominance was temperated by a high level of tolerance and respect and low impositions, in terms of taxes and, mostly, in terms of limitation of Freedom: the whole enlarged Cattatae Empire knew more than a century of peace, prestige, wealth and safety for all the peoples that lived under its flag.

The governments that came out later were not as wise as the one that defeated the T-Rogaran and build the marvelous architecture of the Cattatae "Second empire": courage, honour and pride, that were the corner stones of the Cattatae civilization, became arrogance and ferocity; wisdom and intelligence gave place to calculus and wiles. The Noble Houses, that were crucibles of leaders, soldiers, enterpreneurs, lawmakers and philosophers became clans of political climbers.
A certain political stagnation, lazyness, bribery, egocentrism, a poor management of the finance and of the wealth of a so large dominion, the will to renew with new conquests the glory of the past decades and centuries, the high fiscal pressure, the reappearance of slavery, planted the seeds of the troubles that would have shacked the Cattatae civilisation and its neighbours until our era, but the Empire that flourished for decades on the wave of the victory against the
T-Rogaran was really one of the greatest and most splendid civilties ever seen in this side of the galaxy, and the Gravimetric tecnology was the instrument that build it.

1577 Nagas Bok saw the Hutt Empire as shadow of it once was after the Kes War, he is proclaimed Grand Consul by the council of Naguses, imediatley he goes to work within the starfleet and colonial governors and builds his powerbase, the Council sees what Bok is doing and try to stop his rise of influence, Bok organises a cue and proclaims himself the first Grand Nagas of the Hutt Empire, he relinquishes his own teritorial reign on Nal Hutta to his top general and declares all space and planets claimed by the Hutt Empire to rest within his domain while the Naguses will continue to hold on to there power in the regional constraints of homeworld, after Boks reign the position of Grand Nagus will fall again to disaray with naguses being proclaimed on colonial bodies and client homeworlds which inturn bring more libial reforms to the planets of the Hutt Empire with automonous leaderships.

After a minor show of force, the Council assigns a figurehead Cattatae governor to the Drazi Colonies; he never actually attempts to exercise control, and his position is mostly that of a trade liaison. The average Drazi is totally unaware that the colonies are 'officially' a Cattatae protectorate. They do recognize a rich new market when they see one, and so start to trade with the Cattatae. Meanwhile, the controlling Drazi trade families remain watchful to assure that the Empire does not become too interested in Drazi’s wealth.

1850 Since the creation of FTL communications by the Cattatae, the reengineering of the technology had been a closley guarded secret and replicating it was deemed illegal within the Cattatae Empire and the new Republic for centuries mostly for economic and military superiority.  But know the technology is wildly used by many serviant races like the Drazi that hold no regard to the laws impeded by there masters and use it as a bargaining tool to negosiating trade agreements to the Vree,Hutts, Vori and other fledging alien states with no such technology restrictions against them.  Soon FTL-COMS will be wide spread and universal used by all post-contact races by the 2050's.

The Dukat Corridor is established between Illium and Zaabar which limits shipping while the storm is passing the area, the storm continues into un-explored space where the storm is no longer tracked. This phenomenon known as the Nekrit Exstracts is a part of the Expanses huge storm conveyour, at some point the expanse exerts part of the charged radioactive superstorm into known space in the region near the Armus homeworld and Zaabar and the event won't happen again for another hundred years.

Brakiri .who reached the age of seventy were expected to present themselves to all of their family and friends for the Resolution ceremony, intended to represent a celebration of their life. The ritual eliminated the society's responsibility of caring for the elderly, with an age of seventy being selected so that those dying could say goodbye to their loved ones while still in full possession of their faculties; it was believed that asking each family to randomly picking an age for their elders to die was too heartless.

1883 The Cattatae offer to exend the Reconition treaty with the Vree Conglomerate and to not enter the others territory without consent, due to the long distances from Ventuki to Cattatae space there is limited contact for over a century.

1884 The Century of Strife, for the Hutt Empire is now a libial society of over 150 Naguses of the councel, which brings social staagnation within, The Unification War, as it was later named, began with hostilities between the colonies furthest from the Na Hutta.  These colonies were run by local Naguese, many of whom had distanced themselves from the Empire. Without the galvanizing influence of the government, the colonies became increasingly isolated and xenophobic. Colonists began wearing emblems or facial markings to differentiate themselves from members of other colonies and open hostilities became common.

When war finally broke out, the Empires forces maintained strict diplomacy and refused to get involved. After 30 years of fighting, less than a dozen factions remained and the Empire finally intervened. By that time, the Nagueses were too weak to resist; they were forced to put an end to fighting and renew their allegiance to the Hutt Empire. Though peace was restored, it took several decades for animosity between colonists to fade completely.

The Cattatae are hard-pressed to fight a war on two fronts, but the new Vree weapon (the Nova Gun) gives the Cattatae much concern.

Badly outnumbered, the Cattatae fleet know surprisingly defending the Vree Frontier is decisively defeated by the Vree. The Cattatae agree to a peace settlement granting the Vree trade concessions, and allowing them to colonize several planets within the Cattatae Empire.

Regent Kessil is killed in the final battle, and the Kessec line ends, along with the First Cattatae/Hutt War.

The War ends with a whimper instead of a bang. A state of prolonged but stalemated hostility exists between the two races, with no end in sight. It is almost three years before the Cattatae military presence along the borders with the Vree and the Hutts is back to its pre-war strength, though the War did see the introduction of several new ship designs

He begins exploration funding again, but the Imperial Navy opposes him at almost every turn. To regain control over the entire military, Milvi agrees to let his oldest son be trained as an officer of the Imperial Navy, thus assuring that the next Regent will again be a naval officer.

2020 Narn was a peaceful agrarian world before the Cattatae invaded,  but with the Hutt war been over for some time, no one mentioned it to the Narns as more and more mines and facilities opened up over the planet and know Narns were being exported to near by colonies, with tourism now faded out  completley due to the heavy indutsry now happening on the surface due to their planet's rich with resources and of strategic value, the Cattatae subjugated the Narn using their superior technology.

2027 The former Northern Empire (now known as the komerex dexiSon‘a, or "Empire of the True People") develops nuclear weapons from imformation found from the crash Hutt vesseland attacks the capital of their land-based foe with their one operational bomb. Within three years, the land-dwellers, sparked to new heights of outrage and hatred, overwhelm the sea-dwellers completely. In the end, many seadweller leaders switch sides and become naval commanders in the komerex Son’a ("Empire of the People"), which soon controls the entire planet. In this era, the first Son’a space explorations take place from captured DexiSon'a locationw. Scientists had long theorized that Kibek was the only other habitable planet in the system, and it is colonized in the next 40 years.

2031 Regent Milvi of the Cattatae Regency orders the destruction of the Shale, a semi-mamal servitor race of telepaths, because he finds them too untrustworthy. A power struggle results, with Milvi caught in the middle.

The Koulani have no idea why the Hutts left there world so qulickly. but will vow not to indeded with another alien power ever again and building on the abandoned Hutt Tech.

2045  By this time, the Cattatae have begun to perfecting a defence for the Vree Nova gun disruptor technology, which they are deploying throughout their fleet. With their Hutt War now over, the Drazi now realize that the Abbai and the Cattatae Regency must eventually encounteru one another. At this moment, however,                                 the Cattatae military is occupied with raids against the weakened Hutt border. The Drazi nevertheless fear that the Cattatae will soon turn their attention again in the direction of Drazi and her interstellar holdings. Realizing that any contact between the Abbai. and the Cattatae Empire must inevitably lead to armed conflict, the Drazi hastily negotiate several non-aggression and trade treaties with the Abbai (Birth of the League).

2048 The Hutts discover the potential use of the Metreon energy in the use of a weapon.

2049 On Narn, one of the Cattatae's first acts now that full occupation is now is full swing is start assasinating the members of the Inner Circle to remove any threat of accepted leaders rising against them. Children born into the Inner Circle are to be outlawed and the females sterolized, every Narn over the age of 16 had to carry papers at all times.

The complex social order will be anialated and ready for the first Narn slaves were introduced. The Narns received the most brutal treatment of all the Cattatae "protectorates." For one-hundred Earth years the Cattatae occupied Narn, stripping the planet of its resources, and cultivating slave labor. Many of their new slaves will b used used to build colonies on other worlds with the troublesome slaves will be dumped on planets and left to their own devices (most penal colonies perished, though there were successes).  Before the occupation of Narn the Cattatae were known threw out the Known Galaxy for civilizing and enriching the cosmos threw there imperilzm but after the occupation the Cattatae will be known for its gutting and destruction, the other alien race will soon see the Cattatae with scorn and hatred.

2051 Most Drazi trade families close their operations with the Abbai. in the face of Cattatae trade vessels returning to the Drazi colonies. Through masterful timing of ship arrivals, the Drazi keep the Cattatae and Abbai unaware of each other's presence in the OUTLANDS for many years, despite Abbai displeasure at the closing of many Drazi ports

 2056  The 25 Years of weak Regents are over. A new Regents of the High Council emerges.  Slained Regent
Milvi son Sauron epetai-Javvic succeeds his father, on the Imperial throne, and carries on with the exploratory efforts. The Cattatae military backs the new Regent, and so conquest begins anew

2057-2061 The Dilgar/Cattatae War.  The Dilgar Imperium starts expanding its empire and threatens some Cattatae holdings in the area, the Cattatae sends a fleet to Dilgar space.

2059-2064 A civil war on Nae-Onat results in the release of a genetic plague ( a watered down Ka'Hat virus) on the rebels and wins the ensueing war the but due to the Son'as lack of knoledge of wind patterns and gulf streams the virus eventualy blenkets all of Nae'onat.

Though the Son’a overcome the plague's lethal effects, the Genophage what the disease will eventually be named will cause each generation of females to grow less and less fertile and give succeeding generation's skin a pitted, somewhat diseased stretch skin look with each generation suffering harsher symptoms and skin features than the previous, which will leave the next generation less fertile than the previous generation and will eventually lead to the race going extinct  within 300 years or so with a billion being lost every century. this manifests itself to a view of "the blessed from the Genophage" of there species and the rise of eliteist military government within 20 years to triarge the Genophage the best way they can.

2061 The cattatae crush the fledging Dilgar Imperium and punishes the Dilgar into degrading defeat with there entire fleet and infrastructure destroyed, the Dilgar keep hold of Gomak and there core worlds but loses Kam Jatae civilization to the Cattatae Regency.

2063 The Xon granted autonomous leadership in absent of a Cattatae Governor.

2064 The Cattatae Regency expands to over 7 Galactic Sector’s.

2065 Faced with threats that the Abbai will revoke its non-aggression agreements because of the closure of Drazi ports to even emergency traffic, the Drazi reopen their ports to the Abbai.. shipping on a limited basis. They also sign new treaties with the Abbai. These agreements provide the Drazi worlds with a promise of protection from outside aggression, but bind the Drazi only to not directly attacking the Abbai.  This opens the door for the Drazi to trade with both sides if and when the Cattatae Regency and the Abbai meet in conflict. They continue to try and keep both sides ignorant of the other's existence.

2065 An Abbai merchant captain and his crew encounter some Cattatae traders led by retired Naval Officer Kassam on an Drazi colony. The traders are aware that they have made contact with a previously unknown species, but the Cattatae hide the true importance of the incident, all the while pumping the traders for information on the Abbai.  As an experienced trader, has encountered a number of new races (all customers of the Drazi) in past visits to Drazi ports, and so he simply passes along the routine Abbai contact material. Though he claims to have filed the proper reports to the Abbai Contacts Bureau, those records are never found. Meanwhile, the Cattatae begin a crash program to learn all they can about this potential rival that they call the "Abbai Empire". They capture a number of Abbai ships and interrogate the crews using their new 'Mind Probe' technology.

2066 The Cattatae and the Abbai make first contact

2066 Though any number of independent traders have encountered Cattatae in Drazi ports, the Abbai has never taken official notice of this new culture, whereas Cattatae military observers have been gathering data about the Abbai for some time. On this date, a independent trader vessel and a Cattatae scout vessel exchange fire. Though the Abbai ship damages and chases away the attacking ship, the exchange leaves her without faster-than-light capability. Two Star Fleet warships respond to the trader's distress call and rescue all hands. A nearby Cattatae destroyer class ship, sent to aid the Cattatae scout, evades the larger Star Fleet vessels. The encounter leads the Abbai. to press Drazi sources for information on this previously unknown space faring race and are alarmed to hear that the Drazi are a subject race of the Cattatae..

Abbai defends Aeolious VII colony from Cattatae attack

The Abbai capture the Cattatae colony of Veruca II

The Hutts break all treaties, declare an aggressive neutrality, and begin to refit their battlecruisers. The Hutts expand their borders to include other portions of the neutral zone between the Cattatae and the Vree.

2067 The Cattatae attacks the Abbai but The Cattatae and Abbai settle their differences by negotiation and sign a limited treaty for 10 years. Cattatae are anxious to do so because they plan to attack the Hutts.

2068  The Cattatae withdraw their figurehead governor’s from the Drazi worlds of Zhaabar and Kaltic, beginning a period of benign neglect. Conflict has heated up between the Hutt’s and Cattatae along their common border (though no war is actually declared), leaving the Regency no time for an area it perceives as only marginally profits. Cattatae trading vessels become rare in Drazi space, with the Drazi using their own vessels to conduct most of the trade in war materials with the Cattatae. The Drazi claimed that this would free Cattatae vessels from war efforts. Their real reason for suggesting the policy is to rid their space of the Cattatae presence in order to build their own military more effectively without tipping the Empire to their actual strength.

2068 With approval of the Cattatae Imperial & Detapa Councils, Admiral Kkorhetza sends a fleet to "liberate the Bajorian homeworld, when the Hutts arrive they demand for the imediate removal of all Cattatae forces, Kkorhetza's refuses to withdraw his ships from Bajor, issuing a formal declaration of alliance with the natives of the planet (a Hutt satterlite state). This results in a state of war between the Cattatae and the Hutts Empire, and the third War begins.

The Triangle which is between the three neutral worlds of Vree, Balos and Dilgar will see most of the heavy fighting between the two powers and in the middle of all this fighting is the planet Bajor which the cattatae Regency wanted prime control for economic and military prosperity.

2069 - 2080  The 3rd and Last Hutt/Cattatae War: The Cattatae having strategically defeated the Abbai, attack the Hutts. By war’s end the Hutt home world would be uninhabitable and their Empire smashed into few scattered Enclaves, The Cattatae would loose their grip and influence on most of the free worlds and most of their protectorates and occupied territories especially their Narn holdings which will effect the Cattatae deeply.

2075 The Voth are given semi-automonous control.

2076 Cattatae sceintists discover the Omega molecule, as is a highly unstable molecule believed to be the most powerful substance known to exist, with sufficient amounts of bornite the molecule can be synthesized, however, proper containment methods do not exist to prevent the violent destabillization of the molecule, which destroys subspace and renders all Jump Point technology,including jumpgates impossible. The molecule remained stable for a fraction of a second before it exploded, killing all 127 leading scientists and conequently disabling all quantum flux reactions throughout the Lantaru System. This secondary effect from the initial explosion made it impossible to create  a stable Jump Point. The Cattatae leadership see this failed technology as a weapon as the Anti-Quantum Pulse.

2077  The Voth achieve Jump Point travel.

Battle of Koros Major

Battle of Kirrek 

2077 The Hutts develope a Quantum flux bomb, a payload of a 100,000 tons of Quantium 40 and 5 120 terawatt power stations to jump the payload at Will and nearly any location within 600 light years.  The shock wave of the quantum flux of so much Quantium 40 would be devasting to planets and fleet formations if the jump was in the atmosphere or in the middle of the fleet as the shock wave would equal to a white dwarfs going nova.

2078 The Hutt Empire detonates the Quantum bomb on the cattatae planet of Archanis, killing 1.3 billion Cattatae in one single flash of blinding light. the Hutts will use this weopon 3 more times before the end of the war with more than 2.4 billion deaths. The Cattatae are bewildered  and helpless by the Hutt's new super weapon.

2079 The Cattatae now prepare there fleet to anhaliate the Hutt species and places his first son Prince Mauroon as overall Admiral of the invasion of the Hutt Empire.

2079 Battle of Korriban

2079  This is known as the "Last Cattatae - Hutt War," it will be refered as the "War of Retribution" to the Cattatae, and as the "War of Infamy" to the Hutts and and the rest of the interstellar community.

2079 Balos Star Empire attack the collapsing Hutts border and capture several planets, but are not formal allies of Cattatae at this point. This is the Hutts-balos War.

2080 The Cattatae all fired up of the Genocide of there people by the Hutts now start there own Genocide against the Hutt Empire, They misled the Hutts Admirals into thinking their were to be an invasion of their Kolati and Maakab holdings but actual started a Planetary bombardment of the Hutt home world of Na’Hutta. The planet is rendered uninhabitable and 4 billion Hutts are slaughtered aswell does Rom the last Grand Nagus as the Cattatae shoot down fussion bombs and anti-matter weapons. At this time the Hutt Empire had 40% of their fleet left but with the destruction of their Home world the Hutt fleet went on a suicide mission to Cattatae held space. To top it off the Cattatae detonate there Omega Pulse on the Core Hutt colonies.

2080 As the Hutts defensive sphere collapses and the Hutt home world comes under direct attack, every Hutt warship is called in a last ditch effort to avert total defeat. The remnants of Star Commodore Hpsphyt's forces finds itself blocked from reaching the capital by ships of the Balos Star Empire. Realizing that the Balos ships had to be disabled or they would simply follow them back to their home world, the Hutts close to engage. The Balos ships, however, are under orders to allow no Hutt ships to pass their lines and reinforce the Hutt home world defences. Hutts "Grenadier" class heavy cruisers (armed with Vree nova cannons) meet the Balos heavy cruisers in combat. The Hutts fleet is destroyed in the battle but Some warships evade the Balos fleet and manages to elude the badly damaged Balosian fleet and reach the Hutts home world, where it is ultimately destroyed. The Hutts cruisers are destroyed in the escape of the carnage.  The Cattatae smash into the Hutts fleet.

2080 Immediately following the destruction of  Na'Hutta, the Cattatae struck at half a dozen Hutt bases in the space of just a few days, leaving no survivors and accepting no surrender. Even ships no longer capable of fighting were targeted and destroyed. All attempts to communicate-including an offer to surender were rebuffed.

2080 The Cattatae fleet continued to move methodically through the inner colonies, eliminating defence structures and moving on, leaving civilian structures untouched. At the time, the remainig Hutt leaders believed this behaviour was unusial for the cattatae and presumed that the Hutts military were being targeted first, allowing them to later go back out and exterminate the defenceless civilians.

2080 The Battle of Nu'Shok takes place the last battle in the Hutts/Cattatae War. The Hutts regroup after the fall of Na'Hutta and launch their entire remaining war fleet, in a vain atempt of retibution and try to reach Cattatae Prime, they are halted near the Shale homeworld, the remaining Hutt fleet is eventually defeated, but not before the Cattatae loses reach  40% of the Cattatae Imperial fleet in the process of during which The Eye of the Emperors, a priceless Cattatae artefact is destroyed  while under the protection of House Kiro during this battle.

The remaining Hutt fleet break up and tries to cause serious significant damge to Cattatae holdings and the Cattatae lose 45% of the Cattatae Imperial fleet before the Hutts incurson is finaly put to an end, this final battle and later incurson aswell with the loss of  there main economic colony of Archanis and the weakness of the fleet in the rushed invasion of the Hutt Empire marks the end of Cattatae dominance of the Known Galaxy.

2081 The interstellar community boy-cott and sanction the Cattatae Regency over the war of exstinction of the defencless Hutt's.

2081 The cattatae people grow weary of the genocide now being commited in there name start mass protests over Cattatae Pirme and many other heavy populated colonies, power of the people find there voice with the Detapa council.

2081 During the Cattatae Occupation of Narn, the Cattatae commit a number of atrocities against the Narn people. The details of the activities are not widely known on Cattatae Prime.

2082 The Detapa Council gains enough support to opose the Regent's genocide, many of the from the Cattatae fleet and armies retreat from the killing fields of the Hutt colonies and return home to Cattatae Pirme , a total disobeyed order by the Imperial Regent, civil war is looming.

2082 Regent Sauron discontinues his Genocide of the Hutt colonies, to ease public pressure aimed against the Regent and starts aiming his sights on the heavy burden of occupying the massive Hutt Empire which doubles the size of the Regency.

2082 Many Hutt colonies are destroyed and many atrocities are committed by the Cattatae. All remaining Hutt ships larger than police frigates are destroyed, and the Hutts Empire is reduced to a client of the Cattatae for five months. The Cattatae establish governors of the  remaining Hutts planets. Due to the hostilities, however, these governors are never really able to control the populace and usually rule from orbiting satellites. These satellites have powerful weapons aimed at the planet below, but are poorly defended against attack from space. However, powerful merchant guilds establish themselves on three colony planets (Altroth, Minxitith, and Krooth) overlooked by the Cattatae. These are known as the "Lost Colonies" and come to be known after the Re-establishment of the a working government as the "Old Colonies."

2082 The Cattatae Governors of the Hutts Colonies are recalled back to Cattatae Prime.

2082  The Balos-Cattatae War & the Treaty of Balos, erupts as arguments develop over divisions of the Hutt Empire. In the confusion, the Hutts colonies of Altroth, Minxitith, and Krooth are not noticed or occupied by the Cattatae or Balosians. These colonies were established by the major merchant guilds of the Hutt Empire, and the later power of the Communes stems from this period. The Communes maintain the Monarchy through Prince K'tillek, the last heir of Hydraxan whose reign was before Grand Nagus Rom. The Prince is a virtual puppet (the GuilRICOold the real power), but his presence is important in rallying the surviving Hutts. The Balosian war with the Cattatae ends with a quickky put together Treaty of Balos which concludes the occupation of the defunct Hutt Empire and give all Client and slave homeworlds of the Hutts (except of the planet Bajor) there independence, all  on the gloom of another Cattatae civil war,  which is seen as a great victory by the Balosians.

2082 The Maakab achieve FTL. with the Hutts now vanqiushed the Hutt Client species of the Maakab are one of the first to make the leap to FTL tech.


2084  To stop a civil war that would devastate the Cattatae Regency the Detapa council is given 51% of  leadership in Cattatae civil afairs, The Cattatae Regency formerly dissolved, The founding of the Confederation with the Detapa Council in a percentage control of Cattatae people, The Regent will remain in control of the Imperial fleet and Imperial Guarud but will be renamed as the High Command and will relie on the Detapa Council for its Logistical support ushering a combined a Constitutuional Monarcy. This brings about a new era of peace as the Cattatae will no longer imperize any other races, and with the Cattatae people and their subjects with respect to foreign powers.

2084 The Zhabar Treaty is signed by the Regent and the Detapa Council which will grant the independence of Drazi and Aenar species.

2085 Drazi Freehold Founded after 300 years of being an Cattatae Protectorate.

The Drazi, a race of humanoids inhabiting Zhabar and the Kaltic Free States (staunch Cattatae allies in the lowermost reaches of the Cattatae Confederation, basically a Cattatae Protectorate ), obtain their "freedom" this year. That is, the right to maintain the Drazi fleet in defence of their States and the Cattatae Confederation. This allows the Cattatae Southern Fleet to pull back to some extent as the Drazi construct their own. The Drazi Freehold is nothing more than a buffer between to the Cattatae and the Abbai, a fact which will prevent wars. With the Drazi purchasing disruptors from Hutt pirates, Drazi frigate are launched this year. Frigates are small star ships which can actually fire a drone missile while at high speed. This technology developed by the Drazi, will never be obtained by any other race, including the Cattatae (though many political and covert attempts will be made, the Cattatae have no desire to anger their satellite states by force of arms). This will be seen as the biggest mistake by Regent Sauron as he tries to level the book after the last war of the Hutts and sees the Drazi as a potential drain on resorces but will soon turn out to what was keeping the Cattatae economy in the black for decades.

2086 The Drazi government proclaims all slaves that now reside within the Freehold to be freed, The Drazi colony of Latig 4 has a large Narn population that overshadows the Drazi by nearly half.

2087 The automonous Hutt colony of Mos Pitti which had made a deal with the Cattatae and staved off most of the wars atrocitites by  an automonous member of the Hutt Empire. Moz Pitti being the only official Hutt outpost left starts trading with the newly freed soverign states, the government also starts a secretive illegal piratism program and blames the unstability of the Hutts "old Colonies" as the scape-goat.

2088  the Hutt Communes start to fight against one another and start raiding near by planets for riches and resources.

2089 G’Quon the Liberator is born on Omelos a Narn agricultural colony.

2090 The Balosians set up the Free Slave Circuit for any slaves which happen to find themselves on the run from Cattatae slave ringers.

2091 FOUNDING OF THE LEAGUE; on Abbai Prime the founding of League of Free Worlds takes place with the Drazi, Abbai, Balosian, Maakab, Gorn, Andorian repersentatives, it is a collection of independent alien worlds which for various reasons but mostly due to past Cattatae hostilities and possible future ones and growing Hutt raids, the powers of the League banded together for mutual military support, diplomacy and trade. Membership in the League was flexible and was constantly changing in response to the shifting circumstances and events in the Known galaxy. However, by 2267 the number of League Worlds usually averaged around fourteen.
When combined, the League worlds were, in terms of power, second only to the likes of the Cattatae.

The League is fractious and often is subject to petty internal rivalries and in times of open conflict suffered from a strange combination of insecurities and complacent inaction with many of its members, mainly the Drazi, the Abbai, and the Maakab, refusing to commit to anything out of fear, then suddenly demanding action, fearing for their own planetary security.

Soon after the Drazi given their independence, several alien races meet to discuss what should be done about the threat the Cattatae posed to their borders. These races were former Cattatae and Hutt subjects and fearful of becoming so again. The Drazi and Abbai were the main proponents of forming a mutual defence alliance as a great area of their territory bordered the Cattatae. Many races acknowledged that a combined force would be more dissuasive or at the worst have a much better chance of facing a Cattatae invasion force off.

In 2091, the membership in the League of Free Worlds was ratified by enough sovereignties to sustain it, although it was a highly informal organization at this time. Many League members approached the Dilgar, Ipsha & the Koulani, but they refused to join. Despite this, the League and Cattatae maintained cordial relations. 

2092  The Kes Cabal, aswell with an organized group of militant Hutt’s emerges, and begins its series of attacks on League and other planets near the concentrations of Hutt refugees.

2093 The Son'a Supremacy comes into effect, being a stratocracyits a form of government headed by military chiefs and led by a Praetor; It is not the same as a militry dictatorship where the military's political power is not enforced or even supported by other laws. Rather, stratocracy is a form of military government in which the state and the military are traditionally the same thing and government positions are always occupied by military leaders.

2094 The League and the Cattatae make ground  with the Raider Belt Line Agreement. The agreement analyzers the increasing threat of the Hutts and the Kes, and the Raider pacts against the League and Cattatae alike, where the increased activity of raider and Hutt attacks dramatically increased. The Line would be a no-go zone for commercial freight and even military ships as well.

2095 The Zahl make first contact with the Cattatae Confederation.

2099 The Planet of Weytahn was Terraformed by the Zahl Protectorate in the 2170's for the purpose of establishing a colony there. Once an atmoshere was developed, they established a settlement. Due in part to its relatively close proximity to  Cattatae territory, Weytahn is know believed by the Cattatae High Command(new militry arm of the Cattatae) to be a covert military installation.

2101 The Bolians achieve interstellar flight under Cattatae self automony.

2102-2107 The Kes/Hutt War, The Hutt Communes is invaded by the newly formed Kes cabal, the colony of Mos Pitti fights the Kes and only loose seventy armored merchants ships, they find the rumored 'Lost Colonies' where they push the Hutts there to free their people from the Kes.

2102 The Kes install Prince S'lenstha as a 'token' governor of the Hutt Communes, while the free Hutts maintained Prince K'tillek,  his cousin as their Nagus, and moved to Mos Pitti,  S'lenthsa's Grandson is smuggled out to Mos Pitti and war breaks out between the Kes Cabal and Communes of the Hutts, befuddling the occupying victor.  

2103 The Cattatae suffer a economic crisis, it's close partners also suffer economic downturns especially the Drazi.

2104 The Communes will be victorious but will not retain the Kes Cabal as part of there teritory, The Hutt Communes continue the work the Kes had started and continue raiding other worlds for resorces and treasures.

2104 The Cattatae high command place mis imformation through Drazi agents on the Drazi colony of Latig 4 about the Freehold government reinstating slave laws through out its territory due to the hard economic depression.

2103 The Local Narns population on Latig 4 protest to the colonial council  to retract the laws but the Cattatae's lies ran so deep into Drazi society, no one knew if the imformation was true or not.  This leads to a massive Narn revolt on the colony. 

2104 A Drazi task force to patonate Latig 4 from the Narn rebellion is captured by a Narn fleet of freighters and armed transports. The Drazi population are now under occupation as the Narns declare the colony the first step towards freeing the Narn homeworld.  Many in the Cattatae High Command are alarmed.

2104 As rumours spread through out the known galaxy of the Narn rebellion on Latig 4, Many Narn in the Cattatae Confederation start believing in a life without slavery.

2104 The Cattatae become increasingly concerned over the crisis of Latig 4 and request to aid the Drazi.

2105 The Cattatae send a fleet to releave Latig 4 as the Drazi relinquish command to the approaching Cattatae fleet, As soon the Cattatae fleet jumped into Latig 4 orbit the Narn fleet was almost decimated and only a handful of ships capable of jumping the star system were able to escape the slaughter what now behold the Narn population on the colony.

2105 Within 3 weeks the Narn rebellion was over with the loss of 8,000 Cattatae shock troops, 33,000 Drazi by the hands of the Narn and over 4 million Narns were slaughtered and later vaporised in the near by mountains and hills of the cities, the ash remains would snow down on the population centres for months afterwards. The remaining 900,000 Narns were shipped back to Cattatae space as slaves and left to spread the word of Catatae judgement and treatment of rebel slaves.

2105 As the remaining Narn ships which escaped the Genocide of Latig 4 made there way to the Raider belt line where the Catatae could not enter without being a target themselves the small fleet split up to the better there chances.

2105 A Vree research ship in the Draco System is attacked and boarded en-route back to the Conglomerate by Hutt Pirates, the crew slaughtered and the star charts database strreamed to the Hutts shipSearching the charts they stumbled upon the Sol System and a race of humans with pre-ftl technology and an easy picking.

2105 A 20 ship task force to find the remaining Narn rebel fleet splits to cover more star systems.
