Notes: including explanation of acronyms, etc.
? B.C.The Great Barrier, an accretion disk 13 light years in radius from the center of the Milky Way galaxy, is constructed by an unknown race (possibly the Cytherians) to imprison a non-corporeal superbeing [ST V, TNG 193].
9,000,000,000 B.C.The Black Cluster is formed in sector 97 when protostars collapse in close proximity--eventually one of the most ancient formations in the galaxy [TNG 211]
The Nagha, an immense super computer, is constructed by an unknown organic race. Millions of years later it will evolve into a thinking intelligence, enslave its own creators, and exterminate them [ON 6].
7,500,000,000 B.C.The extremely advanced civilization living on UFC 522-IV vanishes inexplic- ably. Their cities' structures and psionic crystals will remain perfectly preserved for over 7.5 billion years. When discovered cira 2172 A.D. it will be the remains of the oldest civilization ever found in the galaxy [SFC].
5,232,113,390 B.C.The planet Kazh (Klingonki Kazara II) is formed [FRS].
4,000,000,000 B.C.The first of the humanoid races seeds worlds throughout the galaxy with humanoid genetic code. An advanced computer algorithm message is imbedded within the DNA and scattered in pieces throughout at least 19 planets [TNG 246].
Tectonic activity begins on Vulcan (40 Eridani A) with continental plates moving apart at major fault lines at the rate of several centimeters per year. It is one of the most geologically active environments [EOM, TOS #68].
Pollux IV is formed [WM].
3,500,000,000 B.C.Life begins on Earth. In an alternate timeline, an anti-time anomaly orginating from the late 24th Century wipes out life on Earth before it can begin. Captain Picard and Q witness the phenomena from France as it fills an entire quadrant of the galaxy [TNG 278].
3,000,000,000 B.C.An advanced (extragalactic?) race creates a series of planet-killers: automated "doomsday machine" robot weapons of immense size and power to combat the Borg. The collective consciousness of "the Many" are transcribed into the final such machine. Some will later speculate that they were constructed by the Preservers [DMa, ST 3, GN 8]. Ay-nab, the "god" of Lyra, instructs its people to create a Dyson sphere world [ON 9].
2,000,000,000 B.C.The Tagus III civilization flourishes. By the 23rd Century it will be long extinct and an acheological interest [TNG 194].
1,000,000,000 B.C.The galaxy-wide Slaver Empire is destroyed when one race revolts against the Slavers. Most intelligent life of this time is destroyed, and the only remnants of the Slaver Empire are stasis boxes and their contents. One such stasis box, containing a flying belt, will be the key to the artific- ial gravity field used by starships. Another will contain a disruptor bomb [SW/a].
300,000,000 B.C.An alien ship of insectoid beings is invaded by a magnetic organism. Trapped in orbit of Questar M17, the crew disable their own ship to prevent the spread of the entity [BFS/a].
Environmental conditions on Thasus change and will remain stable for the next 3 million years [ST 1].
86,997,600 B.C.An immense informational archive is constructed by a civilization in the Darsays system, near Sector 1156. Over the passage of time it will drift into interstellar space and be taken for a comet [TNG 269].
20,000,000 B.C.The mysterious stone known as the Devil's Heart, Bloodstone, Dream Gem, Ko N'ya, Nota, Telev's Bane, Pagrashtak and many other names over its long history, is created by the Architects (Originators). It has the same prop- erties as that of the Guardian of Forever and will become a talisman to many races. To the Iconians it will be a key to opening the Three Gates and allow their civilization to colonize other worlds. The Ko N'ya may possess semi-sentience and may be a seed to grow another Guardian of Forever [GN 13].
12,000,000 B.C.The Cetaceans colonize Earth's oceans [ST IV].
10,000,000 B.C.Volcanic activity on Faramond ends, leaving it an ice world [GN 12].
6,000,000 B.C.A neutron star collides with a class-C red giant resulting in an explosion of highly ionized particles, hard radiation, dust, debris, and antimatter. It will be one of the hazards of the first Great Starship Race of 2264 [TOS #67].
Roughly during this time, the Organians undergo the metamorphosis from organic Humanoids into pure energy beings [EM].
2,502,786 B.C.On Kazh, an island continent breaks off from the main continent land mass. It drifts to a point on the planet subject to relatively high doses of ultraviolet radiation from the secondary star, Kazara. Consequently, the Bur Chak race will diverge from the main evolutionary path, eventually evolving gland-ridge sun-screens along their skulls--more developed than in any other Kazhian race [FRS].
2,000,000 B.C.The Preservers seed various planets with carbon-based, predominately humanoid, life. They take a special interest in the peoples of Earth (Sol III) and throughout the centuries establish duplicate "Earths" populated by relocated humans or humanoids. Some of these species are genetically altered and unique societies are formed, many of which are computer-dominated, while others are given extended life-spans or some such outstanding abilities. Native American Indians and 13th Century Germans are two such examples of races transplanted from Earth. The former group will be seeded on the planet Amerind (Miramanee) and the latter on a planet deep within a deadly stellar cluster [PSy, TOS #35, TBoT #4, TNG #28].
1,997,700 B.C.The First Winnowing: all land life on the Cetacean homeworld is destroyed by an asteroid impact. Surviving emigrants may have become the ancestors of the Erisian Ascendancy cultures [GN 10].
1,741,651 B.C.The Makers, an advanced race of humanoids from the Andromeda galaxy, die out when their home star goes nova. Only their androids (on UFC 257704-II, later called Planet Mudd or Liticia) live on in our galaxy [IM].

597,730 B.C.The Arretians colonize the known galaxy [RT].
597,636 B.C. (Age of Makto)The Tkon Empire dies out when its home planet's sun goes nova. The empire may have been forged by the Devil's Heart which came to the homeworld as a meteor when the natives were a simple hunting culture. At the height of their power, the Tkon Empire numbered in the trillions and according to legend, the Tkon had the power to move stars [TNG 107, GN 13].
On Bajor, civilization flourishes [TNG 203].
497,740 B.C.The star Exo begins to dim and will continue to do so over the next half million years. The inhabitants of Exo III (later known as "the Old Ones" by their creations) will be driven underground, resulting in a mechanistic culture of androids [LG].
497,736 B.C.The F9 star Careta gradually begins to fade [TOS #65].
497,710 B.C.The Cetacean Probe's construction is completed, having taken centuries of time and half the resources of the creators' world. Its purpose is to search for life forms similar to its creators [GN 10].
497,700 B.C.The once Class M planet Arret's atmosphere is ripped away during civil war. A handful of survivors take shelter in subterranean caves [RT].
497,600 B.C.The Ylans complete their Artifact, an interstellar museum of art. Over the next half million years it will become a starship trap [TNG #13].
304,710 B.C.At the galactic rim, tens of thousands of Borg ships attack the Cetacean Probe, inflicting damage to its crystal memory [GN 10].
The Borg trace the path of the Cetacean Probe back to its homeworld (a distance of some 30,000 parsecs) and strike the planet. This Second Winnowing slaughters thousands before the inhabitants shatter their own homeworld's moon to construct an evacuation fleet from the rubble [GN 10].
297,736 B.C.The xenophobic Kh!lict civilization arises on the planet Careta IV. Over the next 100 millennia they will exterminate every intelligent race they encounter. The Kl!lict extermination will account for 73% of the 'orphan' cultures in the sector [TOS #65].
197,736 B.C.With the sun dimming and Careta IV's geothermal resources tapped to the max, the Kl!ict civilization collapses [TOS #65].
197,725 B.C.The Devil's Heart falls into the hands of the Iconians. They use its technology for three generations to create the Three Gateways [GN 13].

197,635 B.C.The Iconian Empire dies out when the homeworld is annihilated by orbital bombardment, but not before tens of thousands of Iconians escape to the remote outposts of Ikkabar, DiWahn, and Dynasia. Kanda Jiak, the last Iconian, deserts Iconia via a Gateway taking with him the Devil's Heart to Vulcan where he dies. Ancient texts will describe the Iconians as "demons of air and darkness" [TNG 137, GN 13].
170,236 B.C.The Meztorien civilization arises [TOS #65].
97,800 B.C.Atomic warfare on Talos IV destroys the surface of the planet and drives the Talosians underground. While they develop impressive mental powers their technology degenerates and eventually they will lose all knowledge of their ancestors' tools and machines [Me, EOM].
97,736 B.C.The Meztoriens explore the Careta system and unearth the artifacts of the Kh!lict on the 4th planet. Realizing their danger, the Meztoriens shield the ruins with sensor-jamming fields [TOS #65].
The Meztoriens eventually succumb to the Darneel Invasion in the Dulciphar star cluster. The surviving fragments of their empire fall into a dark age from which they never emerge [TOS #65].
97,710 B.C.All Erisian worlds are evacuated, including Temaris IV--possibly due to the presence of the Borg [GN 10].
97,709 B.C.An unknown civilization leaves behind a long-distance frequency-focus transporter on the planet Faramond. The entire planet is a giant transporter conductor capable of transporting whole civilizations a distance of light-millennia. However, the builders take the control mechanism for the machine with them, leaving behind an empty hulk. Over the millennia, the Fabrini and half a dozen other races will stumble across it, each studying the machine and abandoning it [GN 12].
87,035 B.C.The interstellar gate system is abandoned [TOS #43].

12,735 B.C.The Aragos civilization is destroyed [TOS #32].
Half the galaxy is occupied by the Danons (who may have visited Earth and started the Devil legend). Near the center of the galaxy, they encounter the slug-like Torgas and war breaks out which will last thousands of years. The Danons will eventually be driven back to their homeworld where they will construct their Great Machine as a last line of defense against out- side attack, and will worship it [ON 13].

He shows without a doubt that limited re- sources would prevent any one city-state from accomplishing the goal on its own. He uses the old legends and combines it with the example of the past and the realities of the present to make his appeal. After seven months of effort, he gives up in disgust. The meeting breaks up without the unifi- cation needed [FASA].
