First Contact between Earth and Vulcan after Zefram
Cochrane conducted the first warp flight.
|Earth recovers from a nuclear war. The legal system
in this post-atomic horror is based on the principle
of "guilty until proven innocent"
as lawyers have fallen into disfavor, because
Shakespeare's advice to "kill all
the lawyers" has been taken quite seriously.
| The joining of Australia in Earth's world government
is an important step in unifying the people of this
once war-torn planet.

office of the council president is located in the
city of Paris on Earth.
| The Starship Horizon visits the planet Sigma
Iotia II, which is approximately one hundred years
beyond Federation space. The crew reports that the
humanoid population of the planet is on the verge
At this point in time, Starfleet has not yet instituted
their Prime Directive of non-interference and a
member of the Horizon crew leaves behind
a copy of the book Chicago Mobs of the Twenties.
The unfortunate result is that the people of Iotia
adopt the book as a model for their society.
The USS Horizon was lost along with all it's crew,
shortly after the contact at Sigma Iotia II. Because
of this, Starfleet has remained unaware of the cultural
contamination until radio signals from the Horizon
were received a hundred years later.
| Starfleet withdraws the last Daedalus-class
starship from service.
| The first case of transporter psychosis is being
diagnosed on the planet Delinia II. This
is a rare disorder which is being caused by a breakdown
of neurochemical molecules during transport.
| First contact with the Klingons. This was a disastrous
initial contact and it caused Starfleet to adopt
a policy of covert surveillance of newly discovered
civilizations before first contact is attempted.
| Richard Daystrom, who was to become one of the most
brilliant computer scientists and the inventor of
duotronic systems, was born.
| Dr. Richard Daystrom invented the duotronic computer
technology and was awarded for it with the Nobel
and Zee-Magnees prizes. His revolutionary systems
became the basis for the main computers used on

The treaty contained 500,000 words and took 372
Federation legal experts to draft.
| The USS Enterprise completes it's first five-year
mission under the command of Captain Christopher
Pike, the second mission for the ship. A year of
refit work in space dock begins.

fourth mission and is being given a major refitting
process in San Francisco orbital dry dock. Also
Will Decker is promoted to the new captain of the
Enterprise on recommendation of Kirk.

as a training vessel to Starfleet Academy at San
| James T. Kirk retires from Starfleet.
| The Federation starts funding the Genesis project
of Dr. Carol Marcus. She starts working on it at
the Regula I space station.
| Admiral James Kirk, now also an instructor on Starfleet
Academy on Earth, participates in an inspection
and training exercise aboard the USS Enterprise,
which is being piloted by Lieutenant Saavik.
The Enterprise then has to fight Kahn, who
control of the USS Reliant to take revenge
on Kirk and attempted to steal the Genesis device.
The Reliant got destroyed and Captain Spock
dies of severe radiation exposure during this crisis.
Lieutenant Saavik and David Marcus, son of Dr. Carol
Marcus and Admiral James T. Kirk, were assigned
to the USS Grissom for further study of the
Genesis Planet in the Mutara Sector.
After this incident, the USS Enterprise returns
to the spacedock in Earth orbit for repairs. Upon
arrival Kirk is being informed that the Enterprise
was going to be scrapped.
In the meantime the USS Grissom discovers
a lot of life-forms, including the regenerated,
living body of Captain Spock. During the investigation,
the Grissom is attacked by a Klingon vessel,
resulting in the loss of the complete crew, except
Saavik and Marcus, who were on the planet. Marcus
is later being killed by a Klingon landing party.
Admiral James Kirk in the meanwhile commandeers
the starship Enterprise to the Mutara Sector
in an effort to recover the body of Spock so it
can be returned to the planet Vulcan. During this
unauthorized mission, Kirk uses the auto-destruct
sequence to prevent the Enterprise from falling
in Klingon hands and manages to get control of the
Klingon ship. He uses it to return Spock's now living
body to Vulcan.
Unfortunately the Genesis Planet itself disintegrated
due to protomatter in its creation matrix. This
year the starship Hathaway, a Constellation
class ship got also launched.
| The Klingon Ambassador demands extradition of Admiral
Kirk for alleged crimes against the Klingon nation,
but the Federation declines the request, pending
their own actions against Kirk for violation of
nine Starfleet regulations.
Kirk is found guilty and demoted to Captain. He
got assigned to the starship Enterprise (NCC
1701-A), the second ship to bear the name.
| Starfleet's Transwarp Development Project is deemed
unsuccessful by Starfleet Command. The USS Excelsior
got refitted with a standard warpdrive and is assigned
to Starfleet duty. The ship, previously classified
with the NX registry prefix of an experimental vessel,
got re-designated as NCC-2000.
| Starfleet retired the Soyuz class starships.

damage to the Klinogn Homeworld of Qo'noS (speakt
out as: "kronos"). Federation starship
Excelsior got also damaged by the subspace
shock from the explosion.
The Klingons decided to start a major peace initiative.
Part of this was the Khitomer Conference
which became a major turning point in galactic politics.
The Enterprise-A got retired this year,
while the Enterprise-B, under command of
Captain John Harriman, got launched. Captain James
T. Kirk was among the honored guests.
Shortly after launch the Enterprise-B responds
to a distress call from two El-Aurian refugee
ships, which had encountered a temporal flux energy
ribbon known as the nexus. Former Enterprise
captain James T. Kirk is believed to be killed
shortly after the rescue when energy from the
nexus impacts the Enterprise-B. Kirk had
been making emergency modifications to the ship's
deflector system that made it possible for the
Enterprise-B to escape the energy ribbon.

to Bajor. The Cardassian presence is initially being
viewed as benign but became increasingly oppressive
| The Tomed Incident took place and thousand of Federations
lives were lost to Romulan forces. Afterwards the
Treaty of Algeron is signed, reaffirming the Romulan
Neutral Zone. The Federations promises as part of
the pact not to develop or use cloaking technology
in its spacecrafts.
| Transporter psychosis, a rare disorder, is eradicated
because of the invention of the multiplex pattern
buffer, used in transporter systems.
| The Cardassian empire now formally annexes the Bajoran
homeworld, thereby forcing a lot of the native population
to resettle elsewhere. Those who remained on Bajor
were tortured and mistreated. The Cardassians also
strip the planet of its natural resource, cuasing
severe environmental damage.
An underground of Bajoran
nationals starts a terrorist campaign against the
Cardassians, during the next 40 years. The United
Federation of Planets expresses their sympathy for
the Bajoran people, but decide not to intervene
until 2368, because they see it as an internal Cardassian

III. This assistance of a Federation starship was
a key development in maintaining friendly relations
between the Federation and the Klingons.
- Last attempt to make diplomatic contact with
the Jaradans prior to 2364. The attempt was dramatically
unsuccessful because of the mispronunciation of
a single word.

Pegasus had been engaged in a top-secret
research mission, violating the Treaty of Algeron.
- Brikar-Federation War: The Brikar attempted
to form an alliance of races hostile to the Federation
and to take over the Federation. A few skirmishes
were fought over a number of weeks, but the Federation
defeats the Brikar handily.
| A JAG's report on the Pegasus incident concludes
that mutiny in fact did take place but also that
the survivors had withheld information from the
inquiry, and so furhter investigation is recommended.
No such investigation was made, however.

and the Federation is demonstrated when Klingon
forces conduct a raid against Federation territory.
|USS Enterprise-D launched under command of
Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

heavily armed and specifically designed to meet
the Borg in battle.
| An armada of 40 Federation and Klingon starships
is nearly annihilated at Wolf 359 by the Borg. Eleven
thousand personnel and 39 starships are lost. It
is believed that the involuntary cooperation of
Captain Jean-Luc Picard, then
known as Locutus of Borg, played a significant role
in this terrible defeat.
The Borg ship proceeds to Earth and is met by the
Enterprise-D. A rescue mission is successful
in recoverin Picard and a study of his Borg implants
makes it possible to trigger the self-destruct sequence
of the Borg vessel.
| - A Tamarian spacecraft arrives at the planet El-Adrel
IV and transmits a subspace signal toward Federation
space. It is determined to contain a standard mathematical
progression which Starfleet interprets as an attempt
to start a dialog with the Federation.
- Later this year the Ambassador-class
Excalibur encounters a small Borg scout
vessel. Through heroic effort of its captain,
Captain Korsmo, the Excalibur manages to
escape destruction, although a portion of the
starship's engineering section is extracted an
