The Terran Expansion
The Rise of Terra – a timeline….
2008- economic troubles lead to the election of barrack obama.
2009- near economic collapse causes a radical bailout of all major banks deemed to big to
fail and the economic system is propped up… for now..
2010- china begins to flex its economic strength, starts to put demands in the middle east
cutting out America on some future deals.
2011- Arab spring- the middle east erupts into democracy, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and
several other oil producing nations sway to experiment and try democracy. China warns
the USA about its coming debt to pay back, the president reassures that this will happen.
Americas polled unemployment is 9.5% unofficially it is around 20%) . Michael stark
manages to go back to college and begins studying Bio-Nanite research. Cherylyn Stark
Goes back to get her Medical degree as a doctor.
2012- FUSION is on its way!!! the first major fusion reaction nearing 35% energy return
is done. Holograms in a working setup is possible, entertainment takes a new turn in
using the technology with sensor technology to interact with the programs. Arab
Summer- the spring has stalled out as war has spread across the middle east, all the
counties involved in their own internal squabbles begin to stop producing oil because of
constant bombing of oil wells. China Warns America once again that it will allow the
debt ceiling to climb, but will be asking that it starts to pay off its debt.
The war in Afghanistan intensifies and warnings that it could spill over to
Pakistan. Prices on oil spiral to over $200 a barrel ($8.00 a gallon is seen in America!).
Inflation skyrockets and basic goods Double in price overnight… Barrack barely gets reelected
and begins to open other options for fuel… bio-fuel becomes more efficient as
replacement for gasoline ($7.00 a gallon
Americas Polled unemployment is 10.9%, unofficially it is 26% the dow goes up another
3000 points to close at 15,000 The backlog on Medicaid and Medicare cause many
hospitals to refuse care to those holders.
2013- Civil war continues in the middle east for a few YEARS. o.p.e.c dissolves and
causes some states to try to get as much oil out as possible, in doing so causes more war
between oil states…. Oil reaches $300 a barrel ( now above $13 a gallon for gas).
America use on Bio-fuels is at 35%. The dow reaches 16,000. Unemployment has
reached OFFICAL numbers at 15%, Unofficially reaches just over 35%. a new
movement erupts out of the tea party, the Revolutionary party comes to power and
absorbs the tea party AND the republican party. Its head is Sarah Palin ( the tea party was
not right enough for her tastes) and begins a campaign to smear the current president.
Health care begins to go to the toilet.
2014- THE Collapse begins.- Because the regulation on banks is not changed, The entire
credit market froze up again. This time All the banks over this year begin to fail because
no inter banking lending happens. The dow starts its drop in mid June and by July it
reaches 3000 where it stops and does not go any higher. America can no longer bail out
the banks because China has called ALL of Americas debt which tops 165 TRILLION
dollars ( as of 2011 Americas debt to china was 65 Trillion). America begins to try to
slowly repay the debt.
Chinas banks remain open thru this year. Oil is well over $600 a barrel ( $24.00 a
gallon is seen in America). Americas usage on bio-fuel tops 50% at the end of the year.
Healthcare comes if you can prove you are working.
2015- The moon becomes colonized by multiple states. War spreads in the middle east.
the Arab Summer spills over into Iraq and threaten Iran. Iran closes its borders to almost
everyone and stops exporting oil. Fighting spills over into Pakistan from Afghanistan and
by the end of the year they become appropriated by IRAN to form The great state of
Persia (also known as greater Iran states). the UN desperately tries to sanction, but
several of the Arab states still fighting and Greater Iran pull out from the UN, The great
state of Persia sends out its feelers to all the Arab states to join them. As greater Persia
absorbs Arab states , greater Persia tries to starve the US on fuel.
Israel threatens Greater persia to stop its absorbing of failed states, it falls on deaf
ears. Global warming hits in full swing and several costal cities are now threatened to be
underwater. US begins to build walls on its cities that border the seas. Tempatures hit in
the upper 110 F, across America during the summer which in turn causing massive
Drought and crop failures in corn, wheat, soy and fuel grass (for bio-fuel). the bio-fuel
stations are hit as a run on fuel begins to spiral out of control.
Inflation begins to spiral out of control as all of the banks across the US begin to
fail one by one. Many Healthcare institutions militarize and begin to protect their
hospitals. Major corporations turn to the Euro, but shortly this year the European banks
also begin to freeze all credit and some banks in Europe fail. By years end all trading
markets crash and close now Permanently due to lack of money trading. Businesses begin
to print their OWN currency and the largest have their own armed forces.. Dr Michael
Stark under great pressure forces his doctoral thesis on Colonial Nanite intelligences and
begins to work for The newly formed American Machine Consortium ( IBM and amd and
Intel were absorbed into one) and begins work with Dr Marhazchi on a working Nanite
Dr Cherylyn stark is reactivated into the naval services as a Captain. She begins
her service. Oil skyrockets and gasoline and bio fuels begin to go around $50 a barrel at
cheapest. India is threatened by greater Persia and begins to warn Greater Persia that if it
does not back down, It will retaliate. Unemployment in US hits 35% but everyone knows
its closer to 50%. Temp work becomes the norm for the standard American and Temp job
Kiosks are introduced.
2016- all banks are dissolved and are gutted for gold and other resources. The election is
won by the Revolutionary party and Sarah Palin becomes the first and only woman
president of the united states. Greater Persia by march has absorbed all of the middle east
except India and Israel. Greater Persia agrees not to invade Israel ( greater Persia has
over 5 Million personnel on the borders.) Instead it launches a sneak attack of over 30
nuclear missiles. Israel Manages to stop over 25 missiles and begins to glow with
explosions as it launches a full counter strike on all greater Persian states but is
ineffective because of stolen patriot technology by Greater Persia and stops all the
The war lasts for 1 day as Israel is now gone. By years end the UN seen as
powerless to stop the slaughter is totally disbanded and the threat of world war begins.
FUSION ERA BEGINS- The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has a laser array
that started a fusion reaction at over 51% energy return, which becomes the first
sustainable reaction at Princeton University. power plants are built in secret in America
for power needs. Dr Stark discovers Nanite Biological Assembly which allows nanites to
work on living and dead cells, dead cells are able to be temporarily reanimated only and
his work continues. He injects himself and Dr Cherylyn stark to rejuvinate themselves, it
not only works but it repairs most of the damage to their bodies over one month…Dr
Cherylyn stark is promoted to Rear Admiral and is in charge of maintaining medical care
in the Midwest (in secret she uses some of the Nanite tech to keep critical patients alive ).
The American government teeters on total anarchy. Global warming continues and it
becomes common to have about 120 degrees F in some of the Midwest, Crop failures
continue and fuel becomes scarce as America tries to turn into a total electric economy to
2017- President Sara Palin takes office and Presidential order 121 Dissolves the House
and senate as they are ineffective, Presidential order 122 revokes Habeas Corpus and
America becomes a dictatorship. America absorbs Mexico , all of central America and
Canada. Palin tells China that it wont pay its debt and tells them where to go…. China
threatens to take Hawaii in retaliation. China absorbs the entire pacific rim including
Japan. China threatens to absorb Australia but the UK warns that it is still a protectorate
and threatens war. America Develops Neutron particle cannon technology that comes out
of fusion tech and tests it on Moon base ط آ ی
( translates to Americas
downfall) and is successful in killing everyone. the Radiation clears out in a day and
when Greater Persia launches a rocket 3 days later to see what happened , is stumped on
what happened. Sarah Palin tells the world of our “missile shield” and our new first strike
capability. all nanotech is appropriated by the military and Dr stark becomes Admiral
stark of the 11th special Naval fleet and is commanded by the president to construct
militarized nanotech to help in the coming war effort. Stuck between him and his family
being executed for treason he reluctantly starts his work. Secretly he begins to have a
secret bunker built where he begins to store food , water, and parts needed for the coming
war. He Drafts Dr Cherylyn Stark to his lab to keep her safe and explains the plan. In
America over half of the population starts to starve and because of excess heat and
radiation start to get cancer at a frightening rate. All health care ceases unless you are in
the military and some Nanite tech is used to keep soldiers alive. South America is
absorbed into the American Military Bloc.
2018- WAR IS UPON US- President Sarah Palin announces that she is not starting war
but threatens China, China attacks and takes Hawaii. America begins to mobilize to take
it back. All oil trade halts and China warns Greater Persia to start trading oil or else.
Greater Persia tells china where to go. Greater China and The American Bloc goes to
war because of Hawaii and the pacific ocean becomes filled with wrecks of many ships,
planes, missiles and Orbitals. Admral stark bunkers down in his private bunker with his
family and friends, he continues his work in secret as he fakes a transmission to the
Military that a Chinese spy released the Fusion reactor in his bunker. Transmitting there
is lethal radiation, He and everyone will die because the Nanites cannot keep up with the
damage and warns to keep it sealed off, They comply and Dr Stark watches war start.
Persia goes to war with India and they trade nuke strikes, both fail Except for the
orbital platform that dropped 10 tons of iron cased in Teflon ( the equivalent of a fusion
bomb ) on Tehran. Tehran no longer exists. Greater Persia walks into India and kills
everyone in their sight. Greater Persia begins to take all of Africa. Europe expels all
Chinese and Arabs. Greater China and Greater Persia warn Europe to take them back or
else…. Fusion Reactors now return over 90% power return and America is able to make
them smaller as fusion reaction tech becomes more understood. Carbon Nanotube
Batteries are now helping America in the war effort to take the pressure off using oil.
2019- WORLD WAR III- America is deadlocked with china, with Hawaii and several
other islands trading hands weekly. Greater persia seeing its chance attacks Europe and
Europe launches its Nuclear weapons, and bio weapons that target certain genes ( mostly
Anyone of middle eastern descent) Persia launches its weapons and begins to invade
china. China launches its nuclear weapons and America launches its weapons in a
desperate attempt to up china… the world as we know it comes to an end on July 5th.
by December the world is encompassed in nuclear winter.
NEW BREAKTHRU- admiral stark discovers how to neutralize radioactive waste
by Nanite deconstruction. This new breed of Nanite can build more of its kind with
radioactive waste. He releases the Nanite swarm. it will take years to clean the planet.
He manages to contact several other bunkers that is holding some of Americas
humanity… Fortunately President Palins bunker had a mutiny and she was executed for
crimes against humanity.
2020- NEW DISCOVERY- with the Nanotech and help from both Dr Starks, Wetware is
possible and “Jacking IN” is possible. Communication with the other bunkers is
introduced in this fashon and using the old network connections, the net begins to come
back up in a limited fashon.
2038- 95% of the worlds radioactivity has been cleaned up. There are some mutations
that have popped up that allowed those still on the surface to survive. The rise of mutants
and PSI powered people are introduced. Dr Stark is 67 and is kept healthy and alive by
his nano work. Regeneration of dead tissue is accomplished and he can revive dead
people within a 24 hour period, but he can only extend life by 100 years. bringing the
possible life span of all humans into the 200s. Artificial Intelligence evolves by accident
by introducing nanites into a supercomputer ( to see if it can keep up repairs) and it
wakes up. The long road to recovery begins by reclaiming America first , then the world
over the next 30 years. Money is outlawed and everything is done on a request system (
Need over greed) and the new world government begins to be formed. The moon
becomes its own government. Nanite Tech on converting matter to be used for other
purposes comes into use. The Web 3.0 comes into existence and Moores law becomes
outdated as processing power begins to evolve at an surprising speed. The optical
computer with Optical Nanite connections for wetware become into being.
2048- the mutant wars- Mutants fight for rights, and a year long unconventional war
starts, this causes the discovery of military uses of PSI talents. The PSI-OPS division in
the terran military is developed. Mandatory testing by 2050 is law.
2049- Dr Stark uses Nanite tech to allow for clone tanks to be used. Cloning of parts or
new life forms becomes into use. The Starks Clone a baby and call her Ena Cherylyn
Stark. Artifical beef and other meats can be cloned safely with no side effects. Eating
Live animals for food begins its long decline as Vat-Beef has proven to be tastier than the
real thing. Anti-Grav is discovered by anti-grav particles emitted from fusion generators.
thus the First Anti-grav generators and vehicles come into play.
2051- Artificial Gravity discovered. Gravity particles also discovered in fusion reactions
are harnessed to make gravity generators.
2055- Inertial Dampening is discovered. A neutral point between gravity and anti gravity
allows this possibility.
2068- The Terran Government is formed on a Citizen basis. Service grantees Citizenship.
The Terran Government contacts the moon to announce it is allowed into the
Government. The Lunies ( what the moon people call themselves) tell them to go blow
goats. Terra invades the moon swiftly and within 90 days the Lunie war ends. Cheaper
space travel begins and the colonization of the solar system begins. Military laser
weapons are now applicable on a limited basis.
Robots come into the fore for cheap labor. Cryogenics is now possible with the
application of nanites to keep the body from damage. Theories are expounded on
generation ships possible. PSI weapons and protection comes into being.
2077- The Sol system Expansion- Venus has colony bases, as well as mercury, the
asteroid belt, mars, and exploration of the outer planets begin. Helium3 is now the main
component and Jupiter becomes mined for Cheap H3. Starship Speed is now 1/4 the
speed of light capable. . Project: Long Family is introduced and long term colony ships
are proposed to go beyond the sol system using cryogenics for travel. a total of 50 ships
are built for the project over the next 40 years.
2087- The Centuari Reach the first colony ship with cryogenics, launches from the
Chicago Shipyards in orbit above Chicago. The First PSI op develops Teleportation…
proving it might be possible in an artifical scale, PSI- ops keeps that development under
2089- Sol system is fully expanded. Bases across the entire system is in place and the
Venus Atmospheric Project is in effect. it will take 50 years before Venus becomes terran
in nature. Mars in now building starships The Oort cloud space station is built to guard
the system. The Jolly Roger Colony ship launches
2096- Jupiter Revolts- Jovian gas mining bases revolt from terra and so do the bases on
saturn. claming unfair treatment, they take several ships and begin to arm them. Terra
begins talks to ease the revolt, but fails by December. John Saginaw Stark is born and
found to be hyper intelligent and becomes a mathematics prodigy.
2097- the Gas war starts – mars secretly builds ships for the outer colonies and is found
out. In a lighting strike, terran ships decimate the rebel shipyards and a huge firefight in
the asteroid belt takes place. The terrans make the push to the outer colonies. Some
Rebels fled 10 of the 50 built colony ships, taking random transits out of the system.
2098- End of the gas war- by march, The last of the rebel holdouts on Neptune and Pluto
surrender. New regulations go into effect to keep people happy on these colonies. Fusion
power is now capable of being shrunk down to 3 feet of cubed space for a basic fusion
reactor. Space ships are now capable of 1/3 the speed of light.
2099- Alpha Centuari A is reached with the colony ship, a colony is built in prefab
fashion. using nanite tech for mining, a starbase begins to be built with the orbiting
2101- The Artificial war begins- Rebel AIs fight for rights, PSI-Ops discovers Machine
Empathy talents and Techno-kinesis. AIs take over ships and bases. PSI-ops help in the
fight against AIs.
2103- The Artificial war ends. AIs are granted rights, and from now on no AIs are
allowed on starships or critical bases. On Mercury A Super computer setup with Nanites
that can self replicate are deposited and now becomes the AI colony. AIs start to crunch
the numbers on light speed travel. PSI ops secures a base on mercury for Advanced
training. Bases on mars and pluto are established for Secret testing of new possible
2104- The Eugenics Flight- Since cloning of humans is possible for offspring, dr wu man
chow and his “children” take control of 2 colony ships and flee for parts unknown, terra
considers them good riddance and writes off the two ships as lost.
2109- Rebel PSIs who wish to not to be a part of PSI ops start the SECRET WAR. the
war lasts for the month of march as the rebels take a Generation ship out of system.
Ships are now capable of 1/2 the speed of light and maintaining a higher speed without
warp technology is not possible due to the laws of physics. The Star base on Alpha
Centuari A is now capable of receiving multiple ships as a launching point for further
2110- Nanite waste reclamation technology is introduced on organic matter as a way of
making artificial food and reclaiming water in emergencies.
2111- WARP theory is proposed. Seeing the effects of gravitational distortion on prewarp
ships, Dr John Saginaw Stark ( grand son ) crunches the numbers on warp travel He
begins to work with The AI colony on mercury on crunching data and testing Dr ETA
2128-Dr Cherylyn stark passes and six months later so does Dr Michael Stark. The entire
system take their bodies and according to their wishes are reconstituted with Nanites on
mars and on their tombstone which is made of reconstructed Quadlonsdaleite (450%
harder than diamond) it can be read " .. where’s the kaboom? There was supposed to be
an earth shattering kaboom…" in the shape of a old cartoon figure. It becomes a tourist
attraction for years to come.
2129- WARP BREAKTHRU- after working on 5th dimensional mathematics for 18
years with Dr Eta ( an AI) , the basis of warp drive is POSSIBLE. Dr Stark begins
working on a test model. by august of that year a small model warp drive hooked to a
fusion reactor that would be on a space ship is tested on an asteroid. The first asteroid test
disappeared and never reappeared. But the second test in December of that year worked
successfully ( something about being stuck in 5d space by warp polarization)
2030- The test ship The Enterprise ( taken from an old television show in the early 1970s)
Is launched from a safe point from Mercury , and in under 12 hours it reaches The Oort
Cloud base. Terran fleet begins PROJECT: GALACTIC DESTINY . The project is to
build 7 warp capable vessels (one to be kept at home for picket duty) and 14 warp
capable transports for supply duty for the system, alpha Centuari A and the first ships to
2134- The process of building this Fleet has necessitated the change in name of the navy.
All ships are now a part of the United Sol Navy or USN for short. all ships will be
designated U.S.S (United Sol Starship) with its name. classifications on these ships are
considered CRUISERS by design. they will be ready in one year, the Supply vessels are
due to be done in 18 months.
2135- MAY- The crew has been picked and for one month be finalizing the construction of the ships. The Seven Exploration cruisers has been designated The USS Hornet, USS EXODUS, USS Terran Pride ( picket duty), USS Eagle, USS Armstrong, USS Daedalus, USS Valley Forge. Warp tests continue to make sure alignment is proper.
2135- JUNE 1st- NOW….
