The Chronology-
Part 1
(Only one out of 43,000 planets supports intelligent life” – Strange New World)

c15 Billion BCE

  • Creation of the universe.  [According to modern theories] Voyager is there.  At least two members of the Q Continuum have hidden out there in the past (Death Wish).
    [For the parallel versus alternate timeline thing to work the way it’s been demonstrated to in the various series, with a single changeable timeline, as well as quantum parallels, those parallels, including this one and the ‘Mirror Universe’ diverged at this point (changeable timeline: too many episodes to note; quantum parallels: the Mirror episodes, and (sc)).  I will make notes where the timeline has altered because of time travel.   Events that were broadcast after these points WILL be different from the previous timeline]
  • [Voyager‘s presence at the beginning of the universe may have changed the entire multiverse.]
  • It is theorized that the Big Bang was the result of a destabilizing Omega molecule (Omega Directive).

c10 Billion BCE

  • Galaxies form. [According to modern theories]

c6 Billion BCE*

  • The “Guardian of Forever” is built by an unknown species (CEF, STC). “From before the time that your sun burned in the sky, I have waited …. a Question”

c5 Billion BCE

  • Female “Q”s approximate age (The Q and the Gray) [Although “Q” claims the Continuum has always existed]
  • The Solar System may have coalesced about this time.

c3.5 Billion BCE

  • The “Chemical Building Blocks of Life” are formed as amino acids in primordial France (All Good Things…). These are helped by the first Humanoid species, who are spreading the potential for humanoid evolution throughout the stars, as well as “programming” the genetic codes of a number of worlds, including Earth, Vulcan, Q’on’os, Cardassia, Ruah II, Indri VIII, Vilmor II (The Chase). [This race MAY somehow be related to the Arretians, since all these dates are fairly conjectural.]

c.600,000 BCE*

  • Sargon’s people [known to fans as the “Arretians”] explore the galaxy, planting colonies and seeding humanoid worlds (RT, STC).  It is possible that this explains “some aspects of Vulcan pre-history“.

  • The planet of Sargon’s people. [known to fans as the “Arret”] loses its atmosphere in a great war. Claiming to be the ancestors of all humanoid life in the galaxy, these people are nearly all killed in this conflict. Some survive, though, such as Henoch, Sargon, and Thalassa, by encasing their minds in spherical receptacles (RT).

They are described as legendary “Demons of Light and Darkness,” and they conquer a number of planets with their doorway “gates”.  They leave behind ruins on Iconia, Denius III, and the languages of Dinasian, Dewan, and Iccobar (cg). They also leave behind ruins on at least one world in the Gamma Quadrant (To the Death). The major cities of the planet Iconia are destroyed by a large scale orbital bombardment. Evidence suggests that the Iconians could have evacuated a portion of the population using their highly advanced transporter-like technology. Iconia, long believed to be a myth, was discovered by the USS Yamato in 2365.

c100,000 BCE*

  • “Old Ones” of Exo III are killed off by an android revolt (LG).
  • Gravity generator is built to absorb the oceans of an unknown world in the Delta Quadrant. It takes them 200 years (Thirty Days).
  • A communications relay system is constructed from the Delta Quadrant, through the Beta Quadrant and into the Alpha Quadrant (Hunters) [This system may or may not have been built by the Hirogen, who claim it in the 24th Century. I’m inclined to think not.]

c48,000 BCE*

  • The earliest known inhabitants in the region of what would eventually be B’Hala settle (The Reckoning).  A Pah-wraith, possibly Kosst Amojan, (“The Evil One”) is sealed in a stone beneath what will eventually become B’Hala (The Reckoning).  [According to the Koss’moran “the Banished”(?), other Pah-wraiths are imprisoned in the Fire Caves/Caverns (The Assignment), and one aspect of Kosst Amojan is imprisoned in a small idol (Tears of the Prophets)]

c23,000 BCE

  • The Trill begin to live as a joined species (ho).
  • The settlement before B’Hala is abandoned, and eventually B’Hala will be built over the older settlement (The Reckoning).

c7625 BCE

  • Bajorans encounter the first of ten “Tears of the Prophets” sent out from the wormholes (Emissary) about this time [assuming they appear fairly on a regular schedule].  These will eventually include: The Orb of Wisdom, The Orb of Prophecy and Change (a.k.a. the Orb of Prophesy and the Orb of  Change), The Orb of Contemplation, The Orb of Time, The Orb of the Emissary (which will be found in 2375 “Image in the Sand).  The Ninth Orb may be related to Memory.  At least one Orb was eventually damaged badly enough for it to be fragmented (The Story Teller, STM (March 2000)).

c6510 BCE

  • The Second Bajoran Orb is probably found about this time [assuming they appear fairly on a regular schedule]. 

c6000 BCE

  • The Zakdorn development a reputation as tacticians (pp).

c5400 BCE

  • The Third Bajoran Orb is probably found about this time [assuming they appear fairly on a regular schedule].  This would be the Orb of Prophecy and Change.

c4290 BCE

  • The Fourth Bajoran Orb is probably found about this time [assuming they appear fairly on a regular schedule]. 

c4000 BCE*

  • The Aldean civilization develops. Aldea will eventually be hidden behind vast cloaking screens, and be thought of as legendary (wb)(STC).
  • Ice Ages begin on Sigma Dragonis VI causing a divergence in the dominant culture along gender lines, as the women move underground (SB). [*Planets III and IV may have been colonized at this time as well.]

c3000 BCE*

  • The planetoid-building Kalandan civilization is destroyed by a virus (TWS, STC).
  • The Vulcans may begin practicing mental suppression of emotions as early as this (Random Thoughts) [“propaganda from 5,000 years ago” (Fusion).  It is possible that this occurs much later, if Vulcan years are significantly shorter than Earth’s.]

c2700 BCE

  • Last Ice Age on Sarpeidon, Beta Niobe I (AY).

  • The Aldeans cloak their planet (between 1,000 and 2,000 BCE) (When the Bough Breaks)

c1200 BCE

  • Akharin knows Moses (RM).

c1000 BCE

  • Before 1000 BCE, the Vulcans reach space.  They colonize several worlds, including the twin worlds of Romulus & Remus (aka Remii) (BT,uf,g1), and possibly the Debrune, although these are considered a “Romulan offshoot”. This may also explain the relationship between the Vulcans and Rigellians.  This is likely the Vulcan Separation described in (uf).  Note that knowledge of the existence of the Romulan’s Vulcan origins is apparently lost between this time and 2264. — see also the note for 2152 “Minefield”.
  • About this time the Debrune use the planet Barradas III, as an outpost.  The Debrune who have a fairly resplendent civilization occupying several worlds (including Calder II, Yadalla Prime, Dessica II, and Draken IV), which eventually dies out.    The Debrune are responsible for hiding some of the Vulcan psionic weaponry. (g1,g2)

c1000-700 BCE

  • Powerful aliens visit Earth where they are regarded as the “Gods of Olympus” by the Bronze Age Hellenes. These “Gods” eventually leave Earth for Pollux IV (WM). [(STC) as well as the episode place this c3000 BCE, but I refuse to compromise the archeological/historical record.]

c975 BCE

959 BCE

  • The Vulcan Kolinahr monastery Monastery of P’Jem is established some time after this. Master Haadok is one of the founders  (The Andorian Incident)
  • The Seventh Bajoran Orb is probably found about this time [assuming they appear fairly on a regular schedule].

  • Bajoran prophet Trakor encounters the Orb of Change for the first time [This may be the Orb of Prophecy and Change]  He writes his Third Prophecy: “When the river wakes, stirred once more to Janir’s side, three vipers will return to their nest in the sky. When the vipers try to peer through the temple gates, a sword of stars will appear in the heavens. The temple will burn, and its gates shall be cast open.” (Destiny).  Trakor’s Fourth Prophecy says that the Emissary will face a fiery trial and be forced to choose between some things not clearly revealed (Destiny).

543 BCE*

???????

  • On the planet 892-IV, a Roman Empire develops, paralleling the Roman Empire on Earth (bc).
  • The Borg have existed for “Hundreds of Centuries” (qw). [It may be assumed that the assimilation of their original species took considerable time, and the development of their technology gradually developed, or was assimilated, since Species 262 was assimilated around 2145. n.b. Species 259 is the species that gave the ability to regenerate their technology.]

c150

  • The Eighth Bajoran Orb is probably found about this time [assuming they appear fairly on a regular schedule]. 

c250*

  • Spock’s ancestors occupy the ceremonial grounds they will maintain “for over two thousand years” (AT). [Date is a guess]
  • At some time between this and 2072, there is a century of warfare between the Vulcans and Romulans begun by the Q “Quinn” (Death Wish).  [Based on the comment that Surak died before the last battle with “those who march beneath the raptor’s wings”, this war may have started around 250 and resulted in the collapse of the Vulcan civilization (The Forge”, g1, g2)]

c300-800

  • Kaellonian “Resolution” ritual evolves (hl).

c350*

  • The Debrune ruins date from about this time [*possibly destroyed in the last great war with between the Romulans and the proto-Vulcans (Death Wish, The Forge, g1, g2).  The term “proto-Vulcans is from (Riddles)]
  • Surak of Vulcan teaches his people the ways of peace and logic.  He makes a great trek across Vulcan’s Forge (TS, The Forge).  Vulcans begin practicing mental suppression of emotions (Random Thoughts) [“propaganda from 5,000 years ago” (Fusion)]
  • There are terrible and destructive wars on Vulcan, leading to a final great Civil War.  This last Civil War on Vulcan at the time of the “Great Awakening” or the “Time of Awakening“.   Surak dies (probably from radiation poisoning) on Mt. Seleya before the last battle with “those who march beneath the raptor’s wings“.  The T’Karath Sanctuary was a stronghold for one of the factions, and contains a fragment of the disassembled Stone of Gol, the last of the “mythical” psionic weapons (g2), as well as the Katric Ark containing Surak’s Katra and the Kir’Shara (The Forge, Awakening).  Proto-Vulcan civilization collapses in a nuclear winter and the Vulcan civilization gradually rebuilds (BT,AT,AY,SC,g2).  [Note: the dates for the Great Awakening, the Romulans, P’Jem, etc. are very cluttered and not really consistant.]

c820*

  • Kahless teaches the Way of the Klingon on Qo’noS (rh). He fights with his brother Morath, and slays the tyrant Molor, conquers the Vikiri, and establishes the First Empire. [it is likely the calendar of Kahless mentioned (Soldiers of the Empire) – “year of Kahless 999” begins around this point, although this means that the Klingon year is longer than Earth’s]
  • “A Thousand Years Ago, the Dawn of the Empire.  500 warriors stormed the Great Hall at Qam-Chee.  The city garrison fled before them.  Only the Emperor Kahless and the Lady Lukara stood their ground.  It was here that they began the greatest romance in Klingon History.” (Looking for Par’Mach in all the wrong places”) [I assume that’s Klingon years.]

822

  • Leonardo da Vinci “dies” (mo) [One assumes Akharin becomes someone else].

c1550

  • Bajorans use solar sail craft to explore their star system, and inadvertently make the first voyage to Cardassia (Explorers) [Since the Bajorans believed it to have taken place long before evidence exists for it, one might assume there were survivors of the crashed vessel “found” on Cardassia, or else one of the sail ships made it home].
  • The Skrreeans are captured and enslaved by the T-Rogerans (Sanctuary).

1625

  • *Sometime about this time, the 2d Klingon Imperial Dynasty ended when General K’trelan assassinated Emperor Reclaw.  For the next ten years the empire was ruled by a council elected by the people called “The Dark Times” [based on Sirella’s statement that Shenara, daughter of the Emperor Reclaw is her 23rd maternal grandmother, and an assumed generation of about 30 years.  If the generations are 50 years long this could be as early as 1375].  After ten years, the 3rd Dynasty is established and another group of people were given the names of the original members of the family who were slaughtered at the end of the 2nd dynasty; Shenara may have actually been Karana, a concubine living outside the Imperial Stables (You are Cordially Invited…).   [Note, during the 2d Empire, which may or may not have been the 2nd Imperial Dynasty, the Chancellor Mow’ga sent a fleet of ships into Breen space and they were never heard from again (‘Til Death Do Us Part).]
