21st century

April 5th, 2063: After humanity, in the person of Dr. Zefram Cochrane, has exceeded the speed of light for the first time, the Vulcans initiate first contact.


August 19: In at least one timeline, Nathan Cady arrives in Sydney, Australia, on Earth, having been transported there from 2416 by an older version of Chug. Chug, who has been traversing the space-time continuum for ten subjective years using some of Edmundus Wednesday's technology, convinces Cady over the next few days to kill Nicholas del Pozo in retribution for the death of California Douglas.

September 2: "The Trial of Nathan Cady - Dead Authors"

During this period in time, the space-time continuum becomes "frayed" and fragmented due to the repeated temporal transit of Nathan Cady back and forth between moments before and after the apparent death of Nicholas del Pozo.

September 6: At this time in at least one timeline, Nathan Cady is incarcerated at the Saint Mary Psychiatric Hospital in Sydney, Australia, on Earth. He is treated by Doctors Lee, Hardy and Jennifer Higgins—possibly an ancestor of Renee Higgins—and is visited by an apparition of the individual known as Al, who is seemingly some kind of manifestation of a higher plane of reality. Both Nathan Cady and Chug eventually depart for the Telmarc homeworld in the year 2413, and Cady's memories of these events are subsequently repressed. The writings of "Crazy Nicky" del Pozo will be known to future generations of his family.

On Earth, another period of war begins in the planet's violent 21st century: factions of genetic "supermen" remaining from the Eugenics Wars of the 1990s once again attempt to gain power across the globe. This conflict is referred to by some as the "Clone Wars", and despite its impact on humanity will become lesser-known in future generations - overshadowed by the imminent Third World War.


The defeat of the genetic "supermen" brings Earth's "Clone Wars" to an end. However, growing global tensions and political shifts mean that the planet's warmongering is sadly far from over.

At around the same time, the teenage children of Martian settlers escaping war-torn Earth are pioneers in another new genre of "music", titles from which include "Worse than Death", "Farm Animals and Electricity Don't Mix" and "Take Your Helmet Off"—the latter apparently being a popular pasttime on Mars.
