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 dying from infection with the Chicken Pox virus. The virus is brought back to Mars, and within eight Earth months the entire Martian 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
The Apollo Program concludes. [Reality]
1975
The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project marks the first cooperative effort between the United States and the Soviet Union. [Reality]
1981
The United States launches the first space shuttle. [Reality]
1986
The space shuttle Challenger explodes 73 seconds after liftoff, killing all aboard and setting the US space program back by more than 2 years. The Soviets launch the Mir space station. [Reality]
On a class trip in New York State, a triangular-shaped UFO abducts a bus containing several high school students and their chaperones. Among those abducted were John Bishop and Chad Walker.
1990
Jason Voorheese engages in a homicidal killing spree. He will engage in seven more killing sprees over the next decade. [STLN]
1992-1996
The 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 Khan and gains control of most of Russia. This area becomes known as the Furyan Empire. [STLN]
A crashed saucer from the 70s 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. The SS 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 the Sol system, it subsequently falls into a miniature black hole, emerging on the far side of the galaxy. [Star Trek Chronology]
