Note on sources:

The sources used for this were the episodes and movies, the Next Generation Technical Manual, the Star Trek Chronology, The Writers Guides and on screen visual references found in the Concordances to the old and new series. The old series Technical Manual was used as a comparison in one instance only.

The codes in parentheses indicate the source. Episode and movie codes are explained under the titles, where they occur in the chronology. The follow the coding system is based on those used by Bjo Trimble and Larry Nemecek.

STTOS, TOS=Star Trek, the Original Series
STTNG, TNG=Star Trek, the Next Generation
STDS9, DS9=Star Trek, Deep Space Nine
STV, STV=Star Trek, Voyager
ENT=Enterprise (aka Star Trek, Enterprise)

WG#=The Writer’s Guides, as referenced by Larry Nemecek in his Concordances, where the number indicates the season.

Following Nemecek’s precedent, items marked with a /v containing information based on visual clues or Okudagram information; items marked with a /s contains information based on a script or other early version of an episode.

And finally, those items marked with an (*) are conjectural, based on the information on hand, and may be further explained by a description in brackets. An item marked by an asterisk within the brackets with the text indicates something constructed with the information on hand, as well as guesswork.

Items highlighted in Yellow take place in the Delta Quadrant.

Items highlighted in Blue take place in the Gamma Quadrant.

(http://www.startrek.com/launch/keyevents.asp)   [Cryogenic “sleeper ships” were widely used by most major Earth governments up until this time, when advances in technology made them obsolete.

Astronauts Rose Kumagowa and Andre Nokavich are trapped on the surface for weeks until they can be rescued (One Small Step”; http://www.startrek.com/launch/keyevents.asp). [According to (One Small Step), it is this year, during the 5th game of the World Series that Joe DiMaggio’s hitting streak is finally broken by Harmon “Buck” Bokai, “a shortstop from the London Kings” (see 2026).   Ares 4 was sent up by ISA, not NASA]

2047

  • The Great Hermosa Quake sinks portions of Southern California, including Venice Beach beneath 200 meters of water (Future’s End).

2048

  • WWIII (First Contact”, STM (March 2000), http://www.startrek.com/launch/keyevents.asp)
    This war is bad enough that people are still recovering in 2123 when Mariposa is launched (ul). 37 Million people are killed, including “all the lawyers” (BC,ef). [Riker says that 600 million people are killed, but this might be the difference between the deaths in the war itself, versus the deaths caused by the longer term effects (First Contact).] This war destroys many major cities, and causes “Nuclear Winters” (ef, ma, “First Contact). “Post Atomic Horror” (ef); “Nuclear Winters” (ef, ma); “4th World Mercenaries” (ef) [*Possibly Lee Kuan, a Hilter-like dictator mentioned in (PF) and (WGD)]

“Late 21st Century”

  • [Akharin is Abramson?]

2063

  • Zephram Cochrain builds his Prototype CDP engine along with his engineer Lily Sloane, converts an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) into the first faster-than-light, or warp, spaceship – the Phoenix (STTNG:TM, http://www.startrek.com/launch/keyevents.asp)
  • 4 April   The Borg attack Cochrane’s camp (First Contact).
    [–TIME LINE CHANGE–]
    An alternate timeline is created at this point, in which the Borg destroy Cochrane’s ship, and assimilate Earth.  The Enterprise E follows the Borg Sphere back to Earth. and attempts to restore the timeline (In the new timeline, Cochrane’s original crew and a number of his launch team were killed in the Borg attack.  The crew of the Enterprise take their place.  During the evacuation of the Borg infested Enterprise, the escape pods land on Earth at Gravett Island in the South Pacific)..
  • 5 April   The Phoenix is launched. It is noticed by a passing Vulcan exploration vessel, the T’plana’hath (ST:FC, various print sources).  That evening, Zephram Cochrane meets with the occupants of the Vulcan ship in Northern Montana (ST:FC). [At some point after 2063, Cochrane emigrates to Alpha Centauri, because Kirk refers to him as “Zephram Cochrane of Alpha Centauri” (Me).]
  • 5 April.  In the Alternate Universe, Zephram Cochrane meets with the occupants of the Vulcan ship in Northern Montana, and leads his people to take over the Vulcan ship (In a Mirror, Darkly, pt.1).

Before 2064

  • The first territorial peace accords between Vulcan and Andoria are held (Fallen Hero)  [This may have something to do with the “Tau Ceti Accords”]

c2065

  • The first deep-space exploration vessel since 2037, the S.S. Valiant, departs Earth and is eventually lost in a magnetic storm. Transmissions from the ship eventually die out. It is eventually swept out of the galaxy, and the captain is forced to self-destruct (WNM, http://www.startrek.com/launch/keyevents.asp). [Valiant is traveling below WF2, since the Warp 2 “Barrier” won’t be broken until 2143 by A.G. Robinson (First Flight)]
  • Sponsored by the Space Agency, “The Great Experiment”, the S.S. Conestoga, under Cpt Mitchell, leaves Earth about this time (Terra Nova)  [By this time, Utopia Planitia, New Berlin, and even a few Asteroid Colonies have been established (Terra Nova)  It is suggested in the episode that it’s 20 LY away, although if the warp 2 barrier isn’t broken until 2143 (First Flight), it’s pretty clear that this vessel isn’t traveling much faster than Warp 1, therefore “9 years there, 9 years back” means that it’s about 9 LY away.  I should mention that the dates in this episode are very difficult to correlate without some sort of FTL communications]
  • The Ancient civilization of Lavinius V destroyed by “flying parasites” (OA).
  • The radiation laden freighter discovered in the Gamelan system in 2267 was launched sometime about now (fm).

  • Because previous deep-space exploration attempts ultimately failed, a new approach, an unmanned probe named Friendship 1, leaves Earth with a message of peace, warp technology instructions, and an invitation to visit Earth. The probe heads towards the Delta Quadrant (Friendship One, http://www.startrek.com/launch/keyevents.asp). [Again., if the warp 2 barrier isn’t broken until 2043, this probe isn’t going very fast]

c2072

  • Approximate construction date of the Bajoran light sail ship, later used by Akorem Laan’s disappearance in his lightship into the Celestial Temple (Accession)

2073

  • Zephram Cochrane says “Don’t try to be a great man, just be a man, and let history make its own judgments” (quoted by Riker in ST:FC)
