Project NEOVERSE Timeline




SF Eon departing for a flight to Titan; 2012

The results of Operation Cold Moon have been illuminating. Considering our secondary objective, the ability to traverse universal distances without the concern of time is an opportunity we cannot ignore. As such, we will be commissioning the proposal by Dr. Winters to utilize the technology for exploring beyond Earth. The benefits that come from this include a hope for better comprehension, but also to search for extraterrestrial threats. We may eventually use the technology for future human expansion, although we have yet to put serious thought into such ambitions.

  • August 19, 1963 - Operation Cold Moon is declared successful. The O5 Council commissions testing of paranormal space-faring technology, and the development of necessary supplements.
  • December 20, 1966 - The SF Eon conducts a twenty-second hyperdrive jump between Earth and Jupiter. It is one of three space-faring vessels, the other two being the SF Horizon and the SF Procyon. All three of these vessels are commissioned for further exploration into space.
  • June 6, 1973 - The O5 Council passes a vote to commission Project NEOVERSE (passed 12;0, one abstention), and sets it as an indefinite initiative.
  • November 9, 1975 - UET-Alpha-1 ("New Era") establishes the first human settlements on Mars, close to the northern polar cap.
  • February 22, 1976 - UET-Beta-5 ("Icebreakers") land on the Jovian moon Europa. Ensuing exploration of the sub-surface ocean of the moon reveals heat vents, and signs of extraterrestrial life.
  • January 2, 1977 - First Foundation colonies established on Titan, near the liquid hydrocarbon seas at the northern pole. Several unexpected discoveries take place on the moon, as detailed in the original colonies archive.
  • 1978 - The Foundation initiates projects to harvest Jupiter Trojans for more effective acquisitions of materials necessary for expanding into the outer solar system.
  • April 11, 1978 - Colonies established on the Saturnian moon Enceladus.
  • November 14, 1979 - The SF Horizon reaches the Uranian system. Only one colony is established on the moon of Oberon. No further colonization of the Uranus system is made until 1984.

  • February 1, 1980 - The O5 Council passes a vote (10;1, 2 abstentions) to send colonials to interstellar systems by the year 2000. This is done as a result of further technological developments regarding hyperdrives.
  • January 5, 1981 - First colonies established on Triton in the Neptunian system.
  • April 29, 1981 - The Foundation commissions Project HELIUM, with the intent of mining limited Helium-3 from Uranus and Neptune.
  • July 1, 1981 - Harvesting of natural resources off Titan is forcefully stopped by a vote from the O5 Council (passed 9;3, 1 abstention), with the development of the Anvil-12 hyperdrive, a non-carbon based hyperdrive engine. This is in addition to criticism form the Ethics Committee, labeling the harvesting of fuel from Titan as 'unfettered exploitation of natural fuel resources.'
  • December 31, 1981 - The Administrator and the Ethics Committee of the Foundation holds a conference with the O5 Council regarding the ethics of rapid space colonization. At this time, only the highest authorities and various space agencies, select governments and Groups of Interest are aware of Project NEOVERSE. The conference ultimately reaches an agreement to cooperate undercover with any future non-Foundation space exploration initiatives. This is given the designation 'Eight Planets Agreement.'
  • 1982-1990 - Mass colonization of Trans-Neptunian objects. Several bodies such as the Pluto-Charon system, Makemake, Eris, and Quaoar become central hubs for exploration of the Kuiper belt.
  • 1992 - The number of humans living on extraterrestrial bodies reaches 5,000.
  • 1993 - Construction of the SF Light's Arrow commences.1 This ship is equipped with the Anvil-12-UH drive, and is intended to traverse interstellar distances.
  • October 5, 1994 - Through use of various Thaumiel-class SCPs, and other paranormal technologies, faster-than-light communication is achieved. This allows for near-instantaneous communication from any points within the universe, with possible transmissions of up to one terabyte of data per second.
  • August 8, 1998 - Following a series of delays in the project, the SF Broken Arrow departs for a nearly-24 hour space fare to Proxima Centauri. The vessel arrives on a rocky planet2 stripped of it's atmosphere and tidally locked to the red dwarf star. Despite these factors, preparation for colonies within the terminator line are made. Some surface oceans are available for water.

  • January 18, 1999 - First official colonies established on Proxima b, marking the first interstellar human settlements.
  • April 21, 2000 - First ruins are discovered on Proxima b. No lifeforms were discovered among these ruins, but were determined to once be inhabited by a race of quadruped, dog-like beings, with the addition of arm-like appendages above the front legs. Their civilization was determined to be equivalent to humanity in terms of advancement. All potential natural causes to their extinction were disproved after a lengthy study.
  • November 4, 2006 - Various civilian posts on the internet display rumors of classified projects to colonize the solar system, led by organizations dedicated to containing anomalies begin appearing. These posts describe actions of Project NEOVERSE. The Foundation is forced to intercept and dispute the rumors. This day is referred to as 'cracked masquerade day', as it is the closest the Foundation comes to breaking the masquerade.
  • June 22, 2007 - A hostile anomaly discovered on Proxima b, described as a painted concrete statue, kills 61 settlers or about 76% of the total human population Proxima b. Containment specialists present on the planet successfully contain the object, and send it to Earth for study via the SF Horizon.
  • September 29, 2009 - A spacejet crashes on Titan due to a mechanical failure, following a departure from a nearby base. All 28 people on board are killed, making it the deadliest spacecraft accident at the time.
