"I am my own beginning. My own ending."
To get an overview of the major events and changes outside the main canon timeline, check out the StarBase 118 Universe Primer!

Here is the chronological timeline of StarBase 118 PBEM RPG. Listed are the major events that have transpired over the last century.

Major Events include:

  • Births, deaths, and other major life/family events such as weddings and graduations.
  • Launchings, decommissionings, and destructions of fleet vessels.
  • Promotions to the rank of commander and above.
  • Notable mission events and discoveries: This is helpful when a CO asks the science officer if there's ever been a record of something like this happening before.
  • Major diplomatic or political events such as first contacts, wars declared, and treaties signed.
  • Major battles and fleet engagements.

Remember that the purpose of the timeline is to allow simmers to quickly see a record of major events in the SB118 universe to help promote continuity among missions (especially those that may involve time travel or build upon past events) and between ships.

When adding events, keep in mind whether the information you add would be useful for someone simming on a different vessel than your own. If so, add it!

To prevent cluttering of the timeline, do not list the following:

  • Awards received: These are already listed on the List of Award Recipients page.
  • Character-specific service record events such as transfers and promotions below the rank of commander: These events should instead be recorded on the character's own service record in his/her bio page and on his/her ship's crew history page.
  • OOC events: These belong on the StarBase 118 Group History page.
  • Non-notable "canon" events: While a select number of major events from canon such as the destruction of Romulus and Remus are fine for context, there's no need to include every last mission of the Enterprise-D, for instance. Focus primarily on recording events from your own simming experiences.
