Prime Timeline

Year Event
1 The USS Columbia is attacked by Romulan warships whilst escorting a convoy of civilian vessels. Badly damaged, the Columbia is forced to travel on high impulse to a nearby star system. The ship will take 12 years to reach the system, although time dilation effects mean that only two months pass for the Columbia.1
1 The USS Columbia arrives at its destination, discovering a highly advanced alien species there. A native, Inyx, informs them that the planet is named Erigol, home-world of the Caeliar. The Caeliar are extreme isolationists, determined that outsiders will never know of their existence. As a result, they imprison the remaining Columbia crew on Erigol.1
1 Several of the Columbia MACOS rebel against Captain Hernandez, determined to escape from the Caeliar. They use Caeliar subspace tunnel technology in an attempt to escape and go back in time to 2156. During the attempt a powerful feedback signal from another galaxy causes a disaster, destroying Erigol and most of the Caeliar population. The Columbia is thrown through space to the Delta Quadrant; Axion, a surviving Caeliar city where Inyx and Captain Hernandez are located, is thrown 650 years, 7 months, 8 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes into the past.1 A remnant of another city, Mantilis, with a small group of surviving Caeliar and MACOs, is thrown into the Delta Quadrant almost 6,700 years into the past.2
1 The USS Defiant discovers the wreck of the USS Columbia, NX-02, abandoned on a planet in the Gamma Quadrant. Efforts to salvage the wreck are abandoned with the arrival of Dominion attack ships, and postponed indefinitely as the Dominion War begins.1

1 The Borg launch an all-out assault against the Alpha Quadrant, with the intent of annihilating the Federation and other major powers completely.

1 The Aventine journies to the Delta Quadrant to visit the crash site of the NX-02 in order to explore any possible connection with the new method of travel being employed by the Borg. The ship is forced to return after a short investigation of the wreck.1
