Timeline

The timeline of the Terminus Nation universe can be separated into several parts, in respect to its actually separable part.

Shaper Domination

The only part that is common for each portion of the universe is the beginning, known as the Shaper Domination. It was the age when the ancient race of the Shapers rose up and executed its experiments and construction processes.

While very few is known about this period of history, there's an abstract subdivision about this era:

It was also the age when the Cloudans and the Aurosts were evolved and created, respectively.

The Cosmic Disk

The history of the Cosmic Disk starts some dozens of thousands of years before the first activation event, and follows 750 thousand years until the final unity of its inhabitants in the Aftermath.

Calendars

As the first colonists on Volada, every human nation in the galaxy are still using the Gregorian calendar - for ultimate simplicity, event dates of alien perspective are converted to Gregorian dates, as well.

This is very different, however, what do they consider the first year of the written history. In general, though, the mainly used calendars are Beacon Year (BY), Serpent Resurrection Year (KW), and Republic Date (R.D.).

The reason is that, whileKW numbers are possibly easier to understand, because of the smaller scale, Republic Date is preferred for human, as the Republic is the oldest still existing civilization in the galaxy (with the appearance of humans within the galaxy predating its formation with "only" 2624 years), thus their calendar being perfect to represent human historical events.

Beacon Year (BY)

The most fundamental calendar defined the beginning of history when the Cosmic Disk took its current form.

BY1 marks the First Beacon World Activation Event and the ultimate disappearance of the Shapers - this event has sharply defined the advancement of every single race in the future, and as such, most alien races are using this event as a main fix point in their written history.

Kvahk'er'Weplec (KW)

This very ugly word means "Serpent Resurrection" in Sun Serpent language.

Serpent Resurrection was a cataclysmic event, to which the Sun Serpent Empire dates back its written in-galaxy history, due to the empire being founded as a consequence, or aftermath, of said event.

Union Day (UD)

Equals to 7910.R.D., and is in use after the Gate Incident.

The present

The current year is considered the very beginning of the story. This is when Drake resurrects on Vel.
