Timeline - Standard Timeline - 2168

Year Event
2168
1The Starship Horizon visits Sigma Iotia II, a planet lying about one hundred light years beyond Federation space. The crew leaves behind a copy of the book Chicago Mobs of the Twenties; unfortunately the natives come to regard the book as a blueprint for the ideal society. They subsequently remould their world into a close approximation of the book.1
2Settlers from Earth establish a colony on the planet Moab IV. They create a sealed biosphere in which they plan to create an ideal society using genetic engineering.2
3The 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.3
3Several 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.3 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.4
