02 May [reference stardate 1/0805.02]
Headed for the Triangle, a Romulan armada of 60 ships attacks three Federation squadrons near Gamma Hydra. Though Federation forces are outnumbered, both sides take heavy casualties. Star Fleet's new tactics match Romulan ferocity, leaving both fleets badly depleted and exhausted. However, the Romulans force a Federation retreat, and they resume course for the Triangle. The 132nd Strike Squadron, under the command of Admiral William Larson, reinforces the battered U.F.P. forces and repulses the Romulan armada. This battle seriously weakens Star Fleet, but it also prevents the formation of a major Romulan fleet in the Triangle. Excluding isolated, small-scale engagements, the Triangle remains Romulan-free for the remainder of the war [FASA].

The "Bradley" class advanced space tank enters service, each with a complement of 8 [SFC].

25 July [reference stardate 1/0807.25]
Four Romulan squadrons bombard Alpha Omega B with star-bomb missiles, rendering the planet uninhabitable. Two Romulan squadrons performing diversionary tactics are wiped out by local defense squadrons, but over 200,000 military and civilian personnel are killed in the main attack. This marks the Romulans' deepest penetration into Federation space [FASA].

September [reference stardate 1/0809] Shortages of men, starships, and supplies reach critical levels for both Federation and Romulan forces, as both fleets force deep penetrations into their opposing governments' territory. Numerous raids and battle losses make it increasingly difficult for either side to form effective formations and continue the war [FASA].

The U.S.S. "Manassa" (FR-254) "Durance" class vessel is decommissioned and scrapped [CTP].

01 November [reference stardate 1/0811.01]
While on an exploration and survey mission in the Triangle, the U.S.S. "Cavalier" is ambushed by Romulan cruisers in a newly discovered planetary system. After destroying the ship, the Romulan vessels move off without bothering to examine the system. A twelve-man landing party, under the command of Lieutenant Lawrence David Baker, is stranded there [FASA].

November [reference stardate 1/0811] A U.F.P. fleet stumbles on a major Romulan base, dealing the enemy its first true defeat. Over 30 Romulan war-vessels, manned only by skeleton crews during resupply operations, are destroyed in orbit before they can fire a shot. Six Star Fleet vessels are lost in the engagement when the planetary base destroys itself after its shields had been seriously dam- aged. The loss to the Romulan fleet is crippling, and the Romulan war effort never fully recovers [FASA].

The planet Eden (UFC 3676543) is discovered by shipwrecked U.F.P. forces in Romulan space during this era [STM].

2162, 20 January [reference stardate 1/0901.20]
In his now-famous "Sighted Man of Peace" address to the Federation Council, Senior Councilman Abraham Dannon recommends offering a peace treaty to the Romulans. During the next ten days, advocates of both viewpoints hold heated discussions on the proposition [FASA].

01 February [reference stardate 1/0902.01]
The Federation Council votes on Councilman Dannon's proposal for a peace offer. The measure is accepted by a one-vote margin, and is immediately transmitted via subspace radio to the Romulan Star Empire [FASA].

28 April [reference stardate 1/0904.28]
The Federation Council receives a response from the Romulan Star Empire. According to their Imperial Senate, the treaty must contain the provisions that no members of the warring races meet face-to-face, and that no ships cross a negotiated Neutral Zone. Additional information on the exact loc- ation, dimensions, and restrictions applying to the Neutral Zone are also emphatically requested. Councilman Dannon, placed in charge of the sub- space negotiations, responds within one week [FASA].

01 May [reference stardate 1/0905.01]
The Battle of Cheron is fought in Romulan space between two squadrons of Federation ships and remnants of four Romulan groups. The battle ends inconclusively when neither side has any combat-capable ships remaining. This battle marks the U.F.P.'s last opportunity to organize a fleet strong enough to reach the supposed location of the Romulan homeworld. It is considered a victory nevertheless, because the Romulans lose more than the Federation. Admiral Alex Hamilton, commander of the flagship "Hannibal" of the "Marshall" class, announces the end of the Romulan War. Dr. Mordecai Challah urges reconsideration for a Code 1 Priority Research effort to discover the cause and a cure for a new medical affliction resulting from the war effort: rapid-growth cancer of the skin and skeletal structure ap- parently from Romulan laser bombardment [FASA, SFC, TNG 158].

In the "Mirror" universe, the Romulan War ends in victory for the empire at a battle near the boundaries of the Romulan Federation. On the brink of extinction, the Romulans surrender to Joachim's regime [TBoT #14].

17 June [reference stardate 1/0906.17]
Stranded for seven months on what is now known as Baker's World, the crew- men from the U.S.S. "Cavalier" are picked up by the U.S.S. "Lorelei" with- out having suffered any casualties. For his skill and leadership, Lieuten- ant Lawrence David Baker receives the Star Fleet Commendation of Valor and a promotion, as well as becoming an immediate media hero [FASA].

28 July [reference stardate 1/0907.28]
The Romulans communicate with the Federation government and insist on additional terrestrial gains for the Romulan Star Empire. In exchange, they are willing to accept higher restrictions on Neutral Zone outposts. Dannon reluctantly makes many of the necessary concessions, and Federation Council President Thorpe ratifies the completed Treaty of Peace. The treaty is transmitted to the Romulan Star Empire [FASA].

stardate 1200.5 [Y 46]
The Romulan War ends with the Treaty of Alpha Trianguli (Algeron), between Praetor Karzan of the Romulan Star Empire and Cristofur Thorpe, Governor of the Federation Council of the U.F.P. It is the first treaty in U.F.P. history to be negotiated entirely by data upload over subspace radio (Frequency K) [SFB, TOS #35, TNG 158, TM, STM, BT, ST 1].

09 September [reference stardate 1/0909.09]
The Imperial Senate of the Romulan Star Empire broadcasts its ratification of the Treaty of Peace on all subspace frequencies. The message is picked up by Federation starships along the border, and the treaty terms go into immediate effect. After 17 years of piratical attacks and declared host- ilities, the Romulan War is finally over after staggering losses on both sides [FASA].

10 September [reference stardate 1/0909.10]
The Romulan Neutral Zone, an egg-shaped area of space 10 light years in width, 750 parsecs along the galactic longitudinal plane and extending to the outer boundary of the galaxy in the vertical plane, with 128 Trianguli at the center, is established and construction begins on asteroid outposts bordering on the Zone. A period of withdrawal permitted by the treaty will last until July of 2165. All invading U.F.P. and Romulan forces begin retreating at maximum warp speed to their respective sides of the new boundary [TM, STM, FASA].

October [reference stardate 1/0910] Peace reigns, but the Orion Colones know that the Klingon Empire will soon discover the existence of the Federation. The Colonies sign non-aggression and trade treaties with the Federation, but still remain outside the U.F.P. [FASA].

At this time, realizing that they are technologically outclassed and outnumbered, and that they have no hope of winning a prolonged conflict, the Romulans consolidate along the new U.F.P.-Romulan Neutral Zone. They begin major construction of outposts to keep track of Federation forces and keep them in check. Just homeward of these outposts, forces for future expansion into Federation territory are built [FASA].

Atomic warfare rips away the atmosphere of Alpha Xaridian IV, obliterating the populance [TOS #59].

Dohlman Kiyaan, fourteenth of the line of Sevuth, reigns on the planet Elas. She will reign for only three Elasian years until the revolt of the Snake Clans [TOS #68].

The Rey of Gullrey being their era of long-range space exploration [TOS #67].

By this time, the Klingons have begun to perfect shipboard disruptor technology, which they are deploying throughout their fleet. With the Romulan War now over, the Orions now realize that the U.F.P. and the Klingon Empire must eventually encounter one another. At this moment, however, the Klingon military is occupied with raids against the weakened Romulan border. The Orions nevertheless fear that the Klingons will soon turn their attention again in the direction of Rigel and her interstellar holdings. Realizing that any contact between the U.F.P. and the Klingon Empire must inevitably lead to armed conflict, the Orions hastily negotiate several non-aggression and trade treaties with the U.F.P., but still do not join the Federation [FASA].

2163, 05 January [reference stardate 1/1001.05]
The negotiations establishing the Romulan Neutral Zone destroy the political aspirations of Councilman Dannon. His opponents claim that he, as chief negotiator, gave away too much of the disputed area to the Romulans. Dannon is politically censured, and later, loses his position as Federation Councilman [FASA].

The U.S.S. "Durance" (FR-250) modified cargo/tug escort cruiser is decommissioned as a museumpiece. The U.S.S. "Heron Bay" (FR-251), U.S.S. "Avior" (FR-253), and U.S.S. "Gridley" (FR-255) "Durance" class vessels are decommissioned and scrapped. The U.S.S. "Cypress" (FR-256) and U.S.S. "Aberdeen" (FR-257) but are later sold to neutral systems. The U.S.S. "Halsey" (FR-261) experimental test ship is re- moved from service [CTP].

January [reference stardate 1/1001] With the Romulan War ended, budgetary constraints force Star Fleet Command to decommission a number of warships. The entire fleet of "Messier" class cruisers is deactivated, even though the class served exceptionally well throughout the Romulan War. The Zone of Transport Escort is lifted, and galactic peace brings tremendous growth in industry, trade, and tourism [FASA, SFC].

July [reference stardate 1/1207] The period of withdrawal from the Neutral Zone permitted under peace treaty is now over. From this time on, no warship may cross the Romulan Neutral Zone. All Federation cultural exchange programs resume, after having been suspended during the Romulan War. Federation officials release a public survey poll showing rising confidence in the U.F.P. and its ability to perform its intended duties [FASA].

The Galactic Outreach Program resumes after a ten year suspension [SFC].

09 September [reference stardate 1/1209.9]

Mudpigs are discovered lumbering around Rigel IV [TOS #31].

17 December [reference stardate 1/1212.17]
S'Lek Varan is founded in Shuridar, Vulcan. A producer of auxiliary and support systems for both commercial and military craft, it will not only contract through the Vulcan government but also work as a sub-contractor for other less specialized shipbuilders on cooperative projects [FASA].

In the Second History timeline, Romulan ships attack Vulcan. After 6 months of battle, the Vulcans succeed in infiltrating Romulan surveillance vessels and are quick to adapt Romulan stardrive. They contact neighboring systems to push back the Romulan warships. The Vulcan High Council estab- lishes the groundwork for the Interstellar Alliance of Planets [TOS #24].

2165, January [reference stardate 1/1301]
Official membership in the United Federation of Planets reaches 100 [FASA].

21 March [reference stardate 1/1303.21]
Abraham Dannon, author of the Romulan/Federation peace treaty and chief negotiator of its provisions, is assassinated by a spectator at a political rally where he was scheduled to speak. A controversial, much-despised figure in his own time, Dannon will later be revered for his contributions to galactic peace. The Terran civilian decoration for peace, the Dannon Prize, is named for him [FASA].

The rebuilding of Starbase 1 is completed and is towed to its original location [SFC].

The U.S.S. "Aberdeen" (FR-257), U.S.S. "Cay'Andera" (FR-259), and U.S.S. "Grevenmacher" (FR-264) "Durance" class cargo/tugs are purchased by neutral systems. The U.S.S. "Sierra Vista" (FR-262) is destroyed at the Arcturus Test Range [CTP].

A plastic Elasian stellar map is made [TOS #68].

[reference stardate 1/14] As an outgrowth of the Romulan War, a huge prototype Federation battle- cruiser is completed and undergoes testing. It fails to meet the require- ments and is put in storage. As a result, the "Horizon" and "Marshall" classes enjoy an extended commissioned life. The prototype vessel had a maximum warp of 3.9, a proposed complement of 375, and an impressive ord- nance: 8 lasers, 8 particle beam cannons, and 16 fusion torpedo tubes [SFC].

Starbase 12 is commanded by Admiral Uttan Narsu [TNG 215].

The U.S.S. "Essex" (NCC-173), "Daedalus" class starship, commanded by Captain Bryce Shumar, is lost with all hands at Mab-Bu VI's moon [TNG 215].

The Bekeem colony ship is completed [TNG #14].

[reference stardate 1/15] In the Pyrimilis Star System, two inhabited planets are found by the U.F.P. on the same orbit, on a collision course. Discovered by Captain Carlos Dos Passos of the U.S.S. "Gemini" ("Libran" class), they are powerless to interfere with the religion of the union of the two worlds existing on both planets [SFC].

23 August [reference stardate 1/1508.23]
HiBeam Energies, Ltd. is founded in Lunda City, Luna. They will design the first phaser weapons systems [FASA].

The K-117 light (warp-driven) transport shuttle is one of the fastest interatmospheric shuttles in Star Fleet. A century later one of these shuttles will be employed as a portable drilling rig by the Federation Geological Survey. Its heavily shielded warp core provides a safe power source, even with personnel nearby on the ground [TOS #68].

The genetically-perfect integrated Earth colony on Moab IV is founded [TNG 213].

2170, March [reference stardate 1/1803]
Ships of the U.F.P. Galactic Cultural Exchange project complete their first visit to all Federation member worlds. The flagship is the U.S.S. "Horok" of the new "Broadway" class, a hybrid ship originally of the "Merchant" class cargo ships renovated to accommodate the specific needs of its complement of cultural ambassadors. Over the decades the "Hurok" and her "Broadway" class sisters will be uprated to keep pace with the changing warp technology [SFC, FASA].

The North American Indian ancestors of the Dorvan V settlers, led by Cantowa, leave Earth in order to preserve their cultural identities [TNG 272].

The design style of "studied crudity" becomes popular in the Cardassian Empire [DSN #5].

03 April [reference stardate 1/1804.03]
Star Fleet's initial network of manned and automated outposts along the Neutral Zone becomes operational. The system is expanded and improved during the next 30 years, until most military theorists consider it impos- sible for a ship to cross the Zone undetected. It is assumed that the Romulans created a similar network. This is supported by the fact that none of the 17 Federation space vessels known to have penetrated the Neutral Zone have returned [FASA]. Colony Terra (Alpha) 5 is established on Eta Serpentis IV [STM].

Kavis Alpha, a neutron star, explodes [TNG 150].

U.F.P. impulse engine design changes radically [TNG 230].

"Galliant" class star fighters are withdrawn from service [SFC].

[reference stardate 1/1818] Most Orion trade families close their operations with the U.F.P., in the face of Klingon trade vessels returning to the Rigel colonies. Through masterful timing of ship arrivals, the Orions keep the Klingons and U.F.P. unaware of each other's presence for many years, despite U.F.P. displeasure at the closing of many Orion ports [FASA].

About this time, Dax eliminates the first of many host candidates. In the next two centuries, Dax will reject 57 selected hosts [DSN 437].

Most old, Irish traditions are forgotten, according to Mari ni Connal [DSN #5].

2173 (8700 Vulcan Years)
The Vulcan Outreach period ends [MRM].

[reference stardate 1/2127] Rantura Shipping Lines is founded in New Daran, Deneva by Esaha Rantura, a second-generation Denevan, as a shuttle service between Deneva and Colony V. Within a single generation, Rantura Shipping will expand to handle over 80% of the passenger as well as cargo transport needs of both worlds. An agreement with Chiokis Starship Construction within the next few months will further advance Rantura's prospects by giving Rantura exclusive shipping rights to and from Chiokis corporate facilities throughout dozens of planetary systems. Rantura will suffer a disasterous setback when flying parasites from Ingraham B nearly decimate Deneva, losing many key personnel [FASA].

The "Montcalm" and "Meridio" space cruisers are built, two variations on the S.S. "Aurora" class [ACP].

Dohlman Wywras reigns on Elas [TOS #68]. Gamma Spica is saved by the U.S.S. "Bellweather," a "Placido" class ship, by neutralizing a quake's fault line via shipboard lasers [SFC].

[Y 62] The Klingons launch their first warp-powered D-6. The Second Gorn-Romulan War begins [SFB].

Antos IV becomes the 13th U.F.P. member [STM].

Radioactive pollutants on Scalos begin to cause drastic mutations [MRM, WE].

[reference stardate 1/23] The first interstellar liners, the "Declaration" class, begin service between major U.F.P. members. With the blossoming travel demand, 957 of these ships will be commissioned. Each ship carries a complement of 950, has warp 3.2 capacity, and advanced 2nd generation warp drive using 10:1 matter-antimatter fuel. This will be the first class to be equipped with subspace radio and the most popular carrier of its time [SFC].

In the "Mirror" universe, the first interstellar liners, the "Quantum" class, are launched. The first of these is the "Enterprise" [TBoT #14].

April [reference stardate 1/2304] Baxter Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is founded in Chicago, Terra. It will become a leader in manufacturing biomedical adaptive compounds and will develop the first workable, mass-produced serum to combat Rigellian blood-burn fever [FASA].

Alpha and Beta Centauri are at their closest--an event which will occur every 80 years [TOS #28].

Catulla (Theta Pictoris) becomes the 14th U.F.P. member [STM].

[reference stardate 1/24] First evidence of extragalactic life is discovered when an unknown probe is recovered from Sector 24 by the "Castor" class U.S.S. "Greyhound." The probe is a cylinder 2 meters by 357 millimeters whose ion trail was traced towards the Small Magellanic Cloud, and was believed to have traveled at warp 30. Analysis by Dr. William Pomeroy, the ship's science officer, reveals it to be seemingly no more than an inert cylinder with no sign of recording or transmitting data [SFC].

In the "Mirror" universe, imperial scientists attempt to trace the point of origin of the extragalactic probe. Joaquin plots an extragalactic conquest [TBoT #14].

December [reference stardate 1/2412] Faced with threats that the U.F.P. will revoke its non-aggression agreements because of the closure of Orion ports to even emergency traffic, the Orions reopen their ports to U.F.P. shipping on a limited basis. They also sign new treaties with the U.F.P. These agreements provide the Orion worlds with a promise of protection from outside aggression, but bind the Orions only to not directly attacking the U.F.P. This opens the door for the Orions to trade with both sides if and when the Klingon Empire and U.F.P. meet in conflict [FASA].

2177 [reference stardate 1/25]
The U.F.P.'s major space development complex, the huge Centauri Spaceworks, opens with contracts from many member worlds [SFC].

The "Doppler" scout class is decommissioned [SFC].

[Y 65] The Hydrans develop warp power. By a fortuitous chance, their current sublight ships adapt very well to warp power. Conversion of these ships begins. The Klingon D-6 cruiser, F5 frigate, and E4 escort enter service. The Kzinti strike cruiser, light cruiser, and frigate enter service. The Type I Drone, a warp 2 capacity missile, enters service [SFB].

In the "Mirror" universe, Joaquin is assassinated on Earth by his chief executive officer, Carl Warner, who becomes the new emperor. Warner, a cold, battle-hardend military man, is more ruthless than his predecessors [TBoT #14].

On the outskirts of Romulan space, the Romulan cruiser "Scorah" under the command of Primus Oran, takes aboard a Gullrey spacecraft. The Rey emotion-projecting abilities drive the crew insane. The entire ship is lost with all hands except for Subcenturion Valdus Ionis Zorokove who escapes by life pod [TOS #67].

[reference stardate 1/26] The U.F.P. issues a study showing that interstellar tourism may eventually become the largest industry in the Federation [SFC].

During this era the most Earth-like planet in the Alpha Centauri B system, Kent (Alpha B IV) is settled by Humans. This system contains a total of six planets (the innermost worlds: Olson, Perry, Lang, and Kent) which will be destroyed in late 2279 during Alpha B's expansion into an orange giant [TOS #39].

[Y 66] The Gorns develop warp power. Incidents occur along the Hydran-Klingon border. The Klingons want settlement rights on oxygen-nitrogen planets in Hydran territory; the Hydrans want the same rights on methane worlds in Klingon space [SFB].

01 November [reference stardate 1/2611.01]
Wilson Energies Ltd. is founded in Great Britain, Terra when Dr. James Wilson's skills in micro-miniaturization leads to the design of the first hand-held phaser weapon. This new firm's position is secured when Star Fleet orders an unprecedented half-million units to be supplied over the next twelve years. Not content with this coup, Wilson Energies will re- fine the original Phaser I design which will result in the upgraded Phaser II pistol and rifle. These advances will in turn create a production de- mand that Wilson Energies will be hard-pressed to match. Over time, 5 separate manufacturing concerns under Wilson Energies' supervision will be cranking out phasers 24 hours a day [FASA].

2179, 04 March [reference stardate 1/2703.04]

August [reference stardate 1/3308] The Federation merchant captain E. A. Jacoby and his crew encounter some Klingon traders led by retired Naval Officer Kassam on an Orion colony planet. The traders are aware that they have made contact with a previously unknown species, but the Klingons hide the true importance of the incident, all the while pumping the traders for information on the U.F.P. As an experienced trader, Captain Jacoby has encountered a number of new races (all customers of the Orions) in past visits to Orion ports, and so he simply passes along the routine U.F.P. contact material. Though Jacoby claims to have filed the proper reports to the U.F.P. Contacts Bureau, those records are never found. Meanwhile, the Klingons begin a crash program to learn all they can about this potential rival that they call the "Human Empire". They capture a number of Federation ships and interrogate the crews [FASA].

[Y 73] The Hydrans attack the Klingons. They do not have a formal Alliance with the Kzinti (who are still at war with the Klingons), but are considered as co-belligerants. The Klingons are hard-pressed to fight a war on two fronts, but a new Hydran weapon gives the Klingons much concern [SFB].

[Y 87] The Klingons smash the Hydran fleet. Hydran colonies are destroyed and many attrocities are committed by the Klingons. All Hydran ships larger than police frigates are destroyed, and the Hydran Kingdom is reduced to a client of the Klingons. The Klingons establish governors of the Hydran planets. Due to the difference in atmospheres, however, these governors are never really able to control the populace and usually rule from orbit- ing satellites. These satellites have powerful weapons aimed at the planet below, but are poorly defended against attack from space [SFB].

October [reference stardate 1/4010] Star Fleet Command originates the Citation of Conspicuous Gallantry.

[Y 88] First Federation-Kzinti War begins as the Kzinti attack. The Second Lyran- Klingon War begins as arguments develop over divisions of the Hydran Em- pire. In the confusion, the Hydran colonies of Altroth, Minxitith, and Krooth are not noticed or occupied by the Klingons. These colonies were established by the major merchant guilds of the Hydran Kingdom, and the later power of the Guilds stems from this period. The Guilds maintain the Monarchy through Prince S'Lenthna, the last heir of Hydraxan IX. The Prince is a virtual puppet (the Guilds hold the real power), but his pre- sence is important in rallying the Hydrans [SFB].

In Second History, the first incidents of Romulan vessels invading Alliance territory begin [TOS #24].

[reference stardate 1/48] The first new major ship class in 43 years, the "Tritium", proves to be unworkable. This unfortunate design costs Starfleet billions of credits, and results in some of its highest personnel being discharged from service. The "Tritium" is the first third generation warp drive ship: 3 nacelles results in disruptive warp harmonies as apposed to a synergistic coupling of the warp field. Six other "Tritium" class cruisers are constructed in a vain attempt to overcome the glaring shortcomings. Each ship has a complement of 250, an actual warp capacity of 3 (although estimated to warp 4.75), 5:1 matter-to-antimatter, and an armament of 6 laser banks, 8 particle beam cannons, and 250 photon torpedoes. It is also the first ship to be equipped with tricorders [SFC].

In the "Mirror" universe, the "Titan" class 3rd generation warp drive ships prove a failure and are soon removed from imperial service [TBoT #14].
