-**342 PT** - First sentient alien species, who refer to themselves as the Fless, are discovered on a terraformed world, and their language painstakingly decoded. A late-iron age species, they report having been altered by the terraforming process about 90 years prior. Investigation by Imperial scientists discover that viral RNA mutagens released by the probes, originally designed to help Terran life cope with the terraforming process, instead forcibly altered the native planetary life to adapt to the atmospheric conditions generated by the probes. The Fless are deemed ​inferior ​by surveyors, designated lesser caste and subsumed into a protectorate under human governors. A similar pattern follows for many of the other alien races encountered by humanity going forward.+**342 PT** - First sentient alien species, who refer to themselves as the Fless, are discovered on a terraformed world, and their language painstakingly decoded.

 **490 PT** - Terraforming of Terra completes, but the ecosphere remains poor. While the surface is now habitable, it remains a shadow of its former abundance. **490 PT** - Terraforming of Terra completes, but the ecosphere remains poor.

-**1800 PT** -  The elysians, hailing from well beyond the Ascendancy'​s borders, have been an unseen presence in Terran space for some time. They have used their [[elysian psionic paths|psionic powers]] to infiltrate numerous worlds, and have identified a number of slave or protectorate species who they consider to be candidates for enlightenment and protection. Under Elysian guidance and support, and with the tactical advantage provided by their network of [[Nexus Tree|Nexus Trees]], these species rebel and secede to the Elysian [[Commonality]]. The Ascendancy Council is furious, but their forces are spread too thin to provide any coherent opposition.+**1800 PT** - The Elysians, hailing from well beyond the Ascendancy'​s borders, have been an unseen presence in Terran space for some time.

-**2640 PT** - A loosely-bound network of "​problem-solvers",​ usually ​independant ​crews of small, but fast ships that perform contract jobs for money, congeal into the [[Clearance Organisation]]. Its stated purpose is to offer a framework for these independent crews to get work in a more structured manner. It quickly becomes a clearing house of sorts for various bounties, contracts and requests for missions or items to be "​acquired"​ - for money.+**2640 PT** - A loosely-bound network of "​problem-solvers",​ usually ​independent ​crews of small, but fast ships that perform contract jobs for money, congeal into the [[Clearance Organisation]].

 **2704PT** - [[Rastan Particles]] first detected, in the America Nebula. These strangely elongated particles can be used to significantly boost the efficiency of powered devices and systems. GES immediately commissions a fleet of ships to collect substantial quantities of the particle for further research. **2704PT** - [[Rastan Particles]] first detected, in the America Nebula.
