Unstability is increased corporations fighting a financial war on each other, leading to dominance of a few extremely powerful transnational corporations, with power rivalling national states. 2025-2030 - Many local wars and revolutions.

2027 - First computer with computing power equal to a human brain, developed independently by several corporate and national military labs.

2030 - World War III, a massive chaos of vicious resource conquest and backstabbing alliances, nuclear weapons used only in one case, the immediate retaliation by the rest of the world, put a stop to the nuclear agressor, and ironicly started the long and hard process of negotiating peace and securing stability on Earth.

2035 - The union of all countries and nations of the Earth into one planetary federation of states ; the Republican Alliance.

2036 - Promising politician and humanist, Ronald Maynard becomes the first president of the Republican Alliance

2037 - Transnational corporations realise the need to pool effort, in order to influence the new world government. TerraCorp; A corporation with joint ownership by the 7 transnational corporations, is formed.It’s shortterm goal is to bring economics of mass scale to asteroid mining, in order to avoid global production crisis due to lack of resources on the Earth. The longterm goal is to enable human prescence in space and the technical skills to undertake stellar colonization.Those are at least it’s official advertised goals.

2038 - Super meteorite "Prometheus" collides with the Earth, causing widespread destruction and systematic breakdown.

2040-2045 - Significant leap in the development of human science and technologies resulting from the use of powerful extraterrestrial resources found inside the meteorite "Prometheus' and studied by TerraCorp.

Continued :

2073 - The emergence of separatist organizations in most of the colonial planets. Colonies wish to be independent from Earth and TerraCorp

2075 - A brutal wave of suppression sweeps through the remote colonial planets quelling resistancen but not dissension..

2076 - Discovery of the planet, "Angora".

2077 - Unsuccessful attempt to colonize the "Angora" planet. The first contact with aliens.

2078 - Alien invasion on the planet "Enigma". Human defenses are overrun. 2079 - Numerous alien attacks on the human colonial planets.

2080 - Defeat of the human army on a majority of the colonial planets. The same year the Penal Legionnaire Act is passed in the republic senate, allowing TerraCorp to legally form and deploy regiments of convicts from corporate managed prisons.

2081 – The AI Collective offers sanctuary to all humans who are able to travel to their star system of Procyon. Humans will live under the same laws as AI’s, the law is quite simple all physical conflict is legal outside the Procyon perihelion, physical conflict on the inside results in immediate dismantling.High-ranking government representatives and corporation employees and their families evacuate Earth and head to Procyon. Leaving the majority of the humans to try to survive the invasion of their homeworld.

2082 - The battle for Earth is lost, all who are able to, evacuate the planet. Malicious AI’s from the Collective, wreak havoc on Earth’s climate, perhaps part of a scorched earth tactics against the aliens. The remaining humans on Earth face slavery or a difficult survival in the wasteland. Human species survive on many colony planets with independent governments, in the AI Collective sanctuary of Procyon and on clandestine TerraCorp industrial space stations.

2083 – With the help of benign AI’s from the Collective, TRA launches many different weapons programs, with the overall strategy to reclaim Earth and the fallen colonies. Most spectacular is the creation of an elite corps of molecularly printed and cloned soldiers from old hidden national state bio-vaults with special forces soldier DNA, this force is known as the Republican Guard.
In coming battles the Penal Legionnaires will be the anvil and the Republican Guard the hammer.

2085 - Interstellar crusade to the "Enigma" planet. Victory of the human forces.

2086 - Interstellar crusade to the "Tulla" and "Lavra" planet. human forces are victorious.

2087 - Humans return to the planet Earth, liberating the population from slavery by the aliens.

2089 – Human forces strike in the heart of the aliens horde on the planet "Angora".
