~The Sky Union is formed and with it the foundation of modern temporal science.
A time travel agency?

~empathy and data processing continue rise exponentially
:laughing: Empathy should always rise exponentially

~The first Tier (human genetically engineered to be smarter) is born.
Computing power may follow Moore's rule, but biology certainly doesn't seem to be keeping up that quite that pace. Computing is a ground up operation - it's about handling data in the best way you can by designing everything from scratch and debugging it with tools designed specifically for your creations, but with biology, it's about researching and inspecting what already exists - there are basic structures in computing for storing and processing data, but with biological applications, all structures interact with every other structure, like water existing in pretty much every cycle in the body for instance. Biological applications are far more complex than computing endeavors. In that regard, I wouldn't expect a humanoid biological reproduction to exist in this century, though I could see a synthetic computer competing pretty well (assuming parallel processing is all it's cracked up to be and we really can build a board with thousands of CPUs operating in unison).

~Kupier Objects
:poke: Kuiper Objects

~Humans first step foot on pluto, explore Kupier Objects
Reminds me of the pull back shot from the remake of The Time Machine - civilizations on the Moon and then on Mars...

~The number of humans currently living in space approaches the hundreds of thousands
If you're sending people in mass spaceship habitats to nearby stars at relativistic speeds, you'd need to engineer a space craft unlike any other. I really can't imagine anything besides a very massive body being able to make it all that way without losing too many vital materials - if you're sending organic/human life you'd need a sustainable environment, which requires gasses, and gasses seep though even the toughest materials, so the only way to keep them within the realm of the spacecraft is to include a gravitational field (ie have a massive spaceship) and to move something that big you'd need even more fuel, or just expel la huge chunk of the planet to get it moving. You're talking a Tier 1 civilization right? That's terraforming if I recall correctly, I would assume that involves large mass-particle engines - I could see Mercury being used for galactic travel, though you'd have to have a pretty specific destination in mind since it would be a one way trip after the mass is expelled.

~Temporal Science predicts a mass extinction event on Earth.
:?

~The first faster than light (FTL) vessel is completed and demonstrated
:unimpressed: The T should stand for Tachyon. I think Clarke postulated it best when he was describing slow boats that carried the humans at lower relativistic rates and supplies that could withstand the radiation of a ram jet at higher speeds. The supplies would reach the planet first and make the planet hospitable before the human arrived.

~time resets
And thus the y3M bug is solved

~Ross 619 is renamed Core System
Does that system have any planets?

~Manufacturing of FTL vessels and fuel begins.
Have you heard of the FlashForward series on TV? The book that series was based on was written by Robert Sawyer. He also wrote my favorite book - Starplex. In there, they solve that problem with shortcuts that are placed near developing civilizations by an advanced race for when the developing worlds gain space travel - they then use these shortcuts to travel between civilized star systems.

~Efforts to continue a cohesive civilisation between human colonies fail as many worlds grow apart for thousands of years.
Given that it takes light many years to travel between stars, and thus signals would take that long (I'm still dubious of your FTL technology), I could see civilizations becoming essentially independent once they reach new stars since it takes so long to communicate.

~Scientists plan the contruction of structures capable of harnessing the energy of stars
:meow: Wow, it sure took them a long time to perfect solar panels

~Construction of a new Dyson Sphere
Hmm, then again, directing all the solar energy in one direction would make for one heck of a solar sail for intergalactic travel.

Keep in mind "it's" is a contraction for "it is", you have several instances of "On it's return" or "support from it's people" in your write up.

I'm not really sure what to make of this, I think you lost me with the wars (it's just random dates and names to me - seems like you're loosing the audience without something physical to latch on to). I mean what would be so important you would need to spend decades or centuries sending ship(s) across hundreds of lightyears to confront a neighboring civilization in person? By the time you've gotten there, nothing will be the same. I think you're most of the way there, but should keep the time scale reasonable, like looking a moderate distance out and then picking a reason for a war and following the progression of just that exchange. Like say there are two civs set up and civ A sets up a Dyson Sphere in a neighboring system to channel energy back to civ A - then civ B attacks the Dyson Sphere and redirects the power to their system. How would that end up?

Woah, thanks for your long critic -

Fortunately, this isn't a stand alone piece of fiction, in fact it's pretty much tied into everything I'm doing here on DA. This time line provides the basis of events, the chronological foundation of entities, and people and situation whilst providing a hint of what style of universe it will be.

Some of the goals of this piece included providing a frame work for other writers on this project to work from, allowing followers a glimpse of what's going on behind all the spaceships and explosions and to 'hook' people who might not have normally have been interested with thought provoking content.

So to tackle each of your points...

~The Sky Union is formed and with it the foundation of modern temporal science.
Temporal science and the Sky Union within the Children of Sol universe plays a similar role to that of psychohistory and Hari Seldon in Asomov's foundation. Specifically: (taken from the FAQ)
"Within Children of Sol many technologies derive their abilities from temporal science. From FTL communication and sensors, anti-subsystem weaponry and Temporal Observatories, Temporal science is uses the knowledge that this universe is one of an infinite number of timelines or branches. Some of these branches are very similar to our own, others may have had different events occur earlier in history alternating the state of the time line significantly. FTL communication, sensors and observatories all attempt to use data from alternate timelines that are similar to our own but are forward shifted in time.
By taking basic radiological, matter or gravimetric readings from these alternative timelines, these technologies can essentially attempt to predict the future based on the echoes of alternative present realities.

Unlike communication and sensors, Temporal Observatories have immense range, sensitivity and are calibrated locally by entire universities of engineers. Their ability to both predict events sometimes decades in the future, as well as quantising all FTL sensors and communication within empire mark them out as invaluable and during military operations, serving as significant strategic objectives. "



~The first Tier (human genetically engineered to be smarter) is born.
To be human, is to use tools and through extension, humans have been getting smarter and smarter for centuries due to technologies that have helped us problem solve, store and analyse data and communicate better than ever before. Biologically, the concept of a smarter than human entity creating a +smarter than human entity is one of the major aspects of what many refer to as "the singularity" [link] which is a recurring theme throughout the CoS universe.


~The number of humans currently living in space approaches the hundreds of thousands
This really refers to the number of people living in space within the sol system (no interstellar expeditions have taken place yet) mineral resourcing and providing services for interplanetary resource gathers.

~Temporal Science predicts a mass extinction event on Earth.
See Yellowstone Eruption.

~The first faster than light (FTL) vessel is completed and demonstrated
Apologies, but FTL is vital for this universe. I've chosen warp, and if it's any consolation, here's why.
Warp drives (ie, the folding of space, bubbles etc etc)... For a few reasons:
1) It doesn't cause causality paradoxes (instantaneous travel and wormholes always do)
2) All travel takes time, which is a concept that's vital for tactical reasons.
3) Because all travel takes time, including FTL travel, you have an additional variable to differentiate classes. (ie, starfighters travel short distances faster, carriers travel long distances more efficiently)
4) Hyperspace travel methods mildly conflict with some of the more technical aspects of CoS Lore (.see structure of the universe(s))



~Ross 619 is renamed Core System
Does that system have any planets? - It did, most of them are assimilated into the ring.

~Scientists plan the contruction of structures capable of harnessing the energy of stars
Wow, it sure took them a long time to perfect solar panels - Page me when humans seriously start to plan the creation of a real dyson sphere.

~Construction of a new Dyson Sphere
From the FAQ:
"Where does all the energy come from?
Good question. In the period before the events begin, vast structures known as Cores (Dyson Rings) where constructed primarily to harvest the energy output of stars. However, newer technologies evolved meaning that the energy output of these civilisations now vastly exceeds that of the star (I did the math!). Although energy is still derived from a central location within each empire, the actual method has yet to be explained, although I am toying with concepts similar to a signally available "grid energy" generator (.see Ian M Banks' Culture series) that as the story progresses, shrinks; directly powering a new epoch of ships and technology."



All in all, the events mark the run up to a conflict between two civilisations - driven not by resources, but by a desire to preserve separate ways of life in a time where in humanity attempts to transition towards post-scarcity civilisation.

Anyway, thanks for the critic and the SPG error checking, let me know if you'd like more info.

Man, those are looooong, loooooooooong years... I mean, 2000yrs is largely enough for mankind to reach Type II Civilisation - the amount of exponential advancement that occurs in technology over mere decades itself is staggering, so imagine what kind of progress we can make over 50,000yrs O_O

Also, Dyson Spheres don't really sound any good because the sheer amount of resources you would need to construct even 1 of 'em is impossibly large, and I'm sure mankind will have discovered better energy sources then, or better ways to extract energy from stars besides building superstructure around them.

But, yes, anything is possible, so nevermind me, I'm just jealous that you have your own sci-fi timeline established and I'm still struggling with mine so I'm being very picky :P

Ah, habitats, yes, well if you had began with that then Dyson Whatevers make perfect sense, lol (But seriously, as power-plant/habitats, they become kinda essential in the expansion of a galactic civilisation... I see ur point now).

So, has technology in the 50th millennium(you just pwned Wahammer40K there...) become so advanced it would look like magic to ppl of the punny 21st century?

Almost, we come to point where humans are transitioning from doing larger, faster, stronger versions of things we can currently in vision to a point where stuff really just becomes magic as the rules and constants that govern our universe are selectively altered.

EG
"Processors - Processor cores, like present day computers are solid state devices with an electromagnetic current passing through them. They have frequencies, and similar exponential power usage for linear increases in computing power. However that’s where the similarities end. Using the ever collapsing granularity of space-time to transfer information between local points superluminally, Processors can actually compute vast amounts of data before queries have even been processed. It doesn't stop with the quantum or temporal science either, due to the nature of the energies involved, micro-universes can envelop parts of the core, allowing parts of the processor to operate within an environment where natural laws no longer apply... Corporate AI's use a network of these processors for minds, starfighter pilots also use several of these for calculation and operation of gravimetric technology (ie warp core)."
