20th century

1931
  • Martians invade the Planet Earth and nearly succeed at subjugating its people. The invasion is brought to an end when the Martians begin dieing from infection with the Chicken Pox virus. The Virus is brought back to Mars and within eight months the entire species is extinct. [STLN]
1949
  • A Vulcan ship crashes on Earth. This ship is studied by the humans who eventually reverse engineer much of the technology. [STLN]
1969
  • First Terran sets foot upon Luna. [Reality]
  • Jason Voorhees is born [STLN]
1970
  • Romulans begin to use “Flying Saucers” to kidnap and study humans from Earth. The ships are actually ancient artifacts the Romulans discovered in the Denchar system. [STLN]
1972
  • Apollo Program concludes. [Reality]
1975
  • Apollo/Soyuz Test Project marks first cooperative effort between United States and Soviet Union. [Reality]
1981
  • United States launches first space shuttle. [Reality]
1986
  • Space shuttle Challenger explodes 73 seconds after liftoff, killing all aboard and setting the U.S. space program back by more than 2 years. Soviets launch Mir space station. [Reality]
1990
  • Jason Voorheese engages in a homicidal killing spree. He will engage in seven more killing sprees over the next decade. [STLN]
1992-1996
  • Eugenics Wars (World War III?) result from takeovers by genetically-engineered “supermen” led by Khan Noonian Singh. [“Space Seed” and “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”; 23rd and 24th Century historians apparently are in dispute over whether this event or the 21st Century nuclear conflict is more precisely referred to as World War III.]
1994
  • “Superman” Nikolai Fury establishes a front against Kahn and gains control of most of Russia. This area becomes known as the Furyan Empire. [STLN]
  • A crashed saucer from the 70’s is found deep in the Siberian expanse. Nikolai puts his best scientists and engineers on it. [STLN]
1996
  • Seeing that they were losing the war, thousands of Supermen flee for the stars. [STLN]
  • “Supermen” defeated in joint NATO/East Bloc actions, paving the way for planetary unification. S.S. Botany Bay, a DY-100 interplanetary explorer developed in the early 1990’s, is launched, carrying Khan and over 80 other “supermen” in cryogenic sleep. [“Space Seed” and speculation. It is logical to assume that the Eugenics Wars created the political climate to allow a world government (the New United Nations) to come into being on Earth.]
  • The Furyan Empire crumbles but Nickolai and 150 of his people escape in the found saucer and leave the planet forever. [STLN]
1997
  • Space station placed in Earth orbit by NASA/ESA/Japan consortium, with Soviet assistance. [FASA and Reality]
  • Nickolai’s people, hopelessly lost in deep space and starving, crash land on the planet that will become known as Furya. [STLN]
1998
  • International program returns man to Luna. Intensive mining, scientific, and support operations begin. [Conjecture]
1999
  • The Voyager 6 spacecraft is launched from Earth. After conducting flyby explorations of the outer planets in Sol System, it subsequently falls into a mini black hole, emerging on the far side of the galaxy. [Star Trek Chronology]
