Natashan Nation
In the Crusade of Gnorla'Tan the Natashans have suffered heavy losses. However a concerted push, backed up by days of prayer, finally ends the Crusade of Gnorla'Tan in victory for the Natashans, as the Shhhhhh are eliminated. 3950BC
Natashan Nation
The Natashans encounter the centre of the galaxy, Flooos'Trae. It becomes a sight of pilgrimage as it is written in the Holy Tablets that when the gods descend to the Natashan realm of existence, it is from the brightest point of light in the cosmic scale that they appear. The dense cluster of stars around the galactic centre makes it the brightest place in the galaxy. 3600BC

Natashan Nation
The Natashans defeat the Kaleem at the Battle of Daaa'Tal. 2945BC
Natashan Nation
Remnants of the Kaleem begin attacking the Natashan Nation once again. These remnants are quickly defeated. 2920BC
Natashan Nation
The Natashans begin a number of civilisation trials. They take subjects from primitive planets and move them to other worlds. The end result, it was hoped, would be a civilisation that could be moulded by the Nation to worship the true gods of the universe. One such experiment transplanted a city from a remote continent of the Gohorn homeworld to a planet many light-years away. 2880BC
Natashan Nation
The Natashan Nation continues to expand. By this time the Nation encompasses almost half the galaxy. 2750BC
Natashan Nation
A Natashan Missionary vessel discovers the Nephils, a race of powerful telepaths. The ship discovers that the Nephils control a significant portion of the galaxy, an area roughly comparable to the Natashan Nation. 2500BC
Natashan Nation
The Empek Ring convenes to discuss the Nephil problem, as attacks on Natashan border worlds increase from these powerful, conquest-obsessed peoples. 2496BC
Natashan Nation
The Great Natashan/Nephil War Begins. These two dominant superpowers of the galaxy begin an all-out assault on each other. This war rages across the galaxy for nearly 700 years. The entire map of the galaxy is remade by the conquest, and the mythologies of many developing worlds (including that of Earth) are influenced by this conflict. Pyramids, angels, gods, scriptures are all symbols from this long-forgotten conflict that live on into the present day. 2490BC
Natashan Nation
1690: The Great Natashan/Nephil War Ends. The Natashan Nation obliterates the homeworld of the Nephils, and believes them to be destroyed. A small band of the creatures survive, however, and go into hiding. 1690BC
Natashan Nation
As the galaxy's only power, the Natashan Nation enters a new Golden Age of unrestrained expansion. 1500BC
Natashan Nation
The Natashan Nation hits its largest size, claiming two thirds of the galaxy as its own. One area of the galaxy, that which would later become the power centre of the 25th century, is considered too backward for the Natashans to bother with. Instead, their civilisation trials continue. 1200BC
Natashan Nation
Contraction of the Natashan Empire begins, as the Empire's bloated territory begins to fragment. The Empeks begin to lose control over the outer systems advanced enough for there to be Natashans on the surface. 1100BC
Natashan Nation
The problems for the Natashans with their subjugated species do not relent, and simmer on as the Nation begins to retract. The Empeks are forced to pull out of outlying systems, including many conquered from the Nephils. 1000
Natashan Nation
Several outbreaks of rebellion deeper in to the Nation require a consolidation of the assets the Nation has already accumulated. Massive religious conversion of subjugated peoples continues. 1700
Natashan Nation
Empek Shreeal invents a mind-control device. This device is placed in the outer systems of the Natashan Nation to better control the population. 1843
Gohorns
Frantras unites the warring factions of Gohorn Prime, thus ending the "Dark Years." 1867
Gohorns
Frantras establishes the form of Gohorn government that would rule the Directorate right in to the 26th century. He teaches the Gohorns to hone their combat skills and to prepare themselves for the flight to the stars. The Remteklar (Army) and the Waratakal (Navy) are founded. 1868
Gohorns
The religion of Johas re-emerges on Gohorn Prime to assist in uniting the people. 1869
Natashan Nation
Rebellion from some of the Natashan's subjugated peoples is put down. It has reached its highest point, and is becoming out of control. The Natashan Nation is forced to relinquish control of many of its newest and further colonies. 1900
Rosebourgs
The Rosebourg Monarchy declares war on the Banquarde Monarchy. The Beta Hydrae Wars begins. 1902
Natashan Nation
The Natashans attempt a policy of "religious cleansing" of rebellious species. This insights further discord amongst the Nation. Empek Oonos develops a theory for a Vortex Space Energy Harnessing Device. Theoretically, by using Vortex Space as a large battery, the Nation would have inexhaustible quantities of energy. The civilian and military uses are plain, an ultimate power source or an ultimate weapon. 1912
Gohorns
Frantras dies. Asadan is named Chief. 1917
Gohorns
Several factions unhappy with the unification of Gohorn Prime start a second civil war amongst the Directorate with the death of Johas. The former ruler of the Tre'lat Continent, Vartek, starts a campaign of terror against the new government. 1919
Gohorns
The Gohorn Directorate invents laser technology. Vartek destroys the government headquarters. A 10 year campaign begins against Vartek and the insurgents on Tre'lat. 1920
Gohorns
The "Battle of Far'gee," near the Tre'lat capital. Vartek is killed and the campaign ends. 1930
Rosebourgs
The Rosebourg Dynasty conquers the Banquarde Monarchy. Beta Hydrae Prime is unified. 1933
Rosebourgs
His Majesty King Tétu passes the Wise The Royal Edict on Centralization; the current system of government is implemented under the Edict. 1940
Gohorns
Now that Gohorn Prime is completely united, the government looks to the stars in order to fulfil the need for greater land space. Science projects begin to find a way to send the Directorate in to space, as astronomers have determined that Gohorn II is a habitable planet. 1940
Natashan Nation
More systems are relinquished from Natashan control because of the problems of terrorists, rebels, insurgents, protestors etc. High-level meetings of the Empek Ring begin. (Secretly the Empek Ring is meeting to discuss how best to control the population. There is consensus that the Empek Ring would need a device of great power to deter the Rebels.) 1950
Natashan Nation
The Lost 271st Tablet is discovered deep underground on Natasha. It foretells of a cosmic event that would signal the day when the Natashans would come closer to their gods. The tablet also tells the Elder Natashan to seek an otherworldly sign for how they should accomplish this task. (The 271st Tablet is a forgery created by the Empek Ring in order to give the Nation sufficient excuse to construct the Vortex Space Energy Harnessing Device, later renamed the Shree'Tran'Tral.) 1963
Natashan Nation
The Nation calls a communion of its Empeks. It is the single largest council of the Natashan Church in 500 years. The Natashans discuss the 271st Tablet and deem that the day is close at hand when the tablet's prophecy will come true. 1964
Natashan Nation
Large energy spikes are detected within Vortex Space. Terran scientists would later classify such a phenomena as a Vortex Storm. Such an event, 427 years before had heralded the invention of the Vortex Drive, and so the Empeks take this to be the sign that the gods called for. The Empeks return to the Holy Tablets and after weeks of study and interpretation, all come to the same conclusion. They must construct a device to harness the energy of Vortex Space. The "Shree'Tran'Tral" (literally translated "Harness of the Gods") begins construction. It is the most massive construction project in the history of the Nation. 1965
Natashan Nation
The device is completed. It is made of three parts, Shree, Tran and Tral. Shree is placed on Natasha, Tran in system two sectors away and Tral in another system two sectors away on the other side. The Empeks wait for the cosmic event. System F-112 is announced off-limits to everyone except the Empeks of the Nation, for religious study and guidance. It is believed that religious works, and a possible 272nd Tablet have been discovered. 1966
Natashan Nation
A supernovae is witnessed. It is System F-112. The Empeks of the Nation take this to be the cosmic event they have been waiting for. A solar system deemed suddenly off-limits by the Empeks because it is believed it holds the secret to the gods suddenly explodes? The Shree'Tran'Tral is activated on the Holy Day of Three'Tar (Creator.) It rips a hole in Vortex Space, which disgorges energy out of all three components. The energy is enough to tear Natasha apart and the huge gravitational shifts caused by the activation of the weapon force all three stars to go supernova. The Natashan Nation collapses. 1967
Natashan Nation
The territories of the Natashan Nation collapse in to a "Dark Age" type state. All societies turn inward as the fragile bonds that made the Natashan Nation a space empire were removed with the destruction of Laaa'Toooo. The mind control devices in the outer systems break down and malfunction, which is the later cause of psychological problems amongst the crews of the exploratory vessels sent inside. 1968
