Distant past

The formation of the galaxy, when all building blocks for the USS Horizon's adventures were created.

13,500,000,000 BCE

At around this time, the known universe comes into existence.

1,000,000,000 BCE

The Gerlayty civilisation arises during this period. During their existence they will grow powerful and spread across their home galaxy, becoming known as cold and cruel God-figures of giant physical proportions. Outgrowing their home galaxy, the Gerlayty construct a great vessel to serve as a flagship for their civilisation as they head out into the rest of the universe: the Afeq'fg Grvais, or "Space Dragon". The vessel contains ten million colonists, one million warriors and ten thousand smaller starships. It is commanded by the fearsome P'ronfl Rr'ecx.

The Gerlayty wage war against a species of energy beings for over fifty years, resulting in the eventual destruction of the Afeq'fg Grvais. P'ronfl Rr'ecx escapes, but is hunted down by three energy beings and incarcerated in a stasis prison on the planet Athel Loren II. Meanwhile, the energy beings bring a final end to the Gerlayty species after gradually manipulating the stars of their home galaxy to create a black hole, a process which takes over a million years.

65,000,000 BCE

The Kraa-Kree are created by Xuundri, the fourth of the Nameless, from mutated insectoids that he finds living on the surface of a planet that has assumed a distant orbit around a black hole. The purpose of their creation is to provide the Custodians with a worthy foe.

At around this time, the Custodians discover what comes to be known as the Secret, a "spatiotemporal dimensional interface" within the core of a neutron star, encoded with vast amounts of information. As they begin to decode the Secret, they realise its profound implications and begin to become paranoid about other species finding it for themselves.

A Custodian known as the Recounter discovers that a species called the Zhoo'oonai are coming close to discovering the Secret. He destroys their civilisation by diverting a comet fragment from its orbital path and colliding it with their homeworld, wiping out most life on the planet.

36,000,000 BCE

The Kraa-Kree expand to the edge of the Cocoon and find it to be seemingly inpenetrable. However, an invading Borg cube emerges from outside and encounters the Kraa-Kree. The Kraa-Kree discover the Borg Queen aboard the vessel and learn the concept of a leader. The Borg cube is destroyed.

It is during this time period that an armada of starships belonging to "the Cooperative" depart their home and journey towards the Infinity Gate at the edge of the galaxy. In the wake of this event, the Tyx-Ytan, the first of the Tal, is engineered by Triegna'Fy and Graishni, individuals belonging to an unknown humanoid race that are enemies of the Cooperative. The future Tal race will consist of descendants of clones of this original "prototype".

Xuundri leaves the group during the conflict after discovering Phryn is a passenger aboard a generation ship that has just entered the Andromeda galaxy, where the Nameless are currently situated. The two beings join for a second time, but Xuundri leaves quickly after sensing that something has happened to the rest of the Nameless. He returns to find that they are all dormant, having been "put to sleep" for ten thousand years by the Q Continuum.

They also meet Semek, the last remaining member of a Starfleet landing party who befell a similar fate in the 23rd century. When the planet is threatened by Tallonid forces, Semek and the Fearless team work together with natives to repel them, but not without Semek losing his life.

However, they unknowingly leave behind a tricorder that will eventually be discovered by a team from the USS Horizon in 2411.

Am'Nilra Shavani of Meparch calls a meeting of the Meparchkan Security Council to discuss the threat posed by the Dominion; the Meparchkans use their new-found science to create an artificial dark-matter nebula around their homeworld, a defensive measure against the Founders of the Dominion, who they are at war against. Unfortunately, the dark matter seems to somehow affect the souls of the dead. [C]


During this era on the planet Anabaron, a volcanic eruption is triggered by an impacting alien space probe.

The Federation starship Chupacabra arrives in the vicinity of Earth, having been transported there from the future. The vessel crashes on Earth's surface in the region of the Central American sub-continent. Survivors from the crew will find themselves scattered across 15th-century Earth, stranded in time.


November: The USS Horizon NCC-396001 arrives at Earth, transported across space and time after an encounter with a "gravity bumper" phenomenon. Scans of the planet's surface determine the fate of the Chupacabra, and Captain Burke orders teams from the Horizon to beam down to begin the search for survivors as well as prevent possible contamination of the timeline. Sophie Ciate fears her fiancé Liam Taur is lost, but he is eventually located and she is reunited with her husband-to-be. Marc Slater takes part in the operation in his role as linguistics expert. Other junior officers in the teams include CPO Jesus Esperanto and Lt. Mendez, an ethnologist who is seriously wounded. Among other things, Vymora Einicrox's team rescues a Vulcan who had been mutilated by the Inquisition. The last remaining senior crew member to be recovered from the Chupacabra, aside from CSciO LtCmdr. Scipio, is Lt. Meera Dayrider.

It is discovered that LtCmdr. Julius Vespasian Scipio, CSciO of the USS Chupacabra, is posing as a magician and has entered the employ of Piero de' Medici after demonstrating an ability to apparently produce gold out of thin air. Numerous visitors are planning to visit the de' Medici's palace at this time, including Giovanni di Lorenzo de' Medici and Leonardo da Vinci. Disguised as a troupe of players and performers, a Horizon team—including Fryda, Ambassador Pendar's aide—infiltrate the Palazzo de' Medici to investigate what is happening. They meet Arabella Delphi—yet another time traveller, this time from the 26th century. Delphi abducts Kallesin 'n Galeda to her private transdimensional domain, where she reveals that she is an android of similar construction to him, describing herself as a daughter of Lore. After failing to use nanites to compromise 'n Galeda's systems and being confronted by Vymora Einicrox, Delphi flees to an unknown location.

Meanwhile aboard the Horizon, Nova'Song begins experiencing visions of an alternate future timeline, one in which a non-Human Federation is at war with the Imperial Terran Fleet; the reality that will come into being unless the damage to history can be prevented. Before long Nova'Song also becomes aware of a temporal subspace distortion forming in nearby space, a phenomenon that may act as a potential route home.

The starship Horizon, with Julius Scipio safely aboard, returns to the 25th century, arriving in the early part of the year 2418.


According to the USS Horizon's historical archives, Piero de' Medici, the ruler of Florence on Earth, drowns in a river after fleeing from a lost battle. This event may have been altered due to the actions of several groups from the future. Other records place de' Medici's death in 1492.
