Contained here is the Timeline of the Union of Worlds from the very beginning of their universe to the end of the start of the Union-Nakai war.
000: The Universe and Xanthos are created, why is unknown but together they embody light and darkness, they then both work together to create the big bang which happens everywhere at once, they sculpt the dimensions from the void and set the foundations of the material universe we know today.
001: The duo both create the balance, a universal law which for bays either side to win, the balance must be forever kept and a being is created to keep and enforce the balance, his name is lost in the mists of time but he roams the dimensions. They also create the dimensional crystals which control the dimensions, to stop them from being harmed or used by others the dimensional dragons are created to guard the crystals one for each dimension.
100: The material universe begins to take shape, galaxies form and stars are born, with the stage set the Universe creates the first ever life, the Nakai.
500: The Nakai being confined to one dimension quickly master technology and the material Universe spreading the seed of life to other worlds and creating other life, the being of the balance surveys this dimension closely.
750: The Nakai branch out using inter dimensional travel to reach all corners of creation, settling on many worlds and galaxies, Xanthos being frustrated at the advancement of light uses his powers to corrupt many races to darkness and also corrupts most of the Nakai in the first dimension. The Nakai here fall upon each other with a lust for carnage and soon the blood of millions runs on many worlds, the being of the balance now known as Wolf is disgusted and decides to end the corruption himself, he slays the dragon of that dimension and smashes the crystal condemning all those inside the dimension to die. With the balance restored he moves on.
850: The Nakai in the milky way are oblivious to the happenings of the prime dimension and build themselves an empire in this galaxy, living for many years they help nurture many new races that have evolved, the most promising being the Shalakians, Talonians and the Godoroks who all live in peace under the Nakai's guidance.
900: The Nakai come under attack by a force which has never been seen before, sweeping through the Nakai's forces and worlds the unknown race destroys and consumes everything, when finally the Nakai are cornered on their homeworld of Sol they evacuate to a pocket dimension constructed by their technology using a construct called the Oblivion gates with the bold sacrifice of their main fleet to buy time enough for the race to escape they then wait unable to return, condemned to watch the events unfolding.
901: As a final act the Nakai seed the galaxy with life, including Sol in a hope of rebuilding. The mysterious race that destroyed them leaves just as quickly as they came.
1000: As the new races evolve in the milky way the old races quickly revert to infighting, also the Talonians gain a strange new leader who seems to appear from nowhere calling himself Claw he has the appearance of an Angel and he helps the Talonians advance their technology. The Shalakians in particular reach a point where their whole race ascends only to find entry to the higher planes of existence barred because of the terror they inflicted upon the other races. Now trapped in the twighlight of the material realm and the ascended realm they vent their fury on the other races. Now with the power of half ascendancy the Shadows initiate a war of purging against the Talonians and the Godoroks.
1250: Talonia falls, Claw leaves devastated that his beloved race is dead, after a bitter fight the last of the Talonian race is wiped out. Claw arrives just in time to warn the Godoroks who were allies of the Talonians to hide or die, they engineer a great ark which will contain everything their race has accomplished and their history along with 20,000 souls. Unfortunately not all escape and the Godoroks are destroyed but the ark manages to get away. Claw having seen the devastation unfold wanders the stars waiting for his true destiny to unfold.
1500+: the many Universal events unfold but the Nakai in particular manage to discover the ultimate gene code, the genetic code of the Universe himself. Using this power they manage to return to their realm and find a specimen to test it on. The Human race evolves on earth, descended from the Nakai they progress oblivious to the events of the distant past.

The Shadow ConflictEdit
2068: The Union of Worlds spreads out across the galaxy gaining more and more colonies every month, many new races young and old join the Union and a era of peace descends upon the galaxy. XCORE lead the Union and conduct patrols and peace keeping exercises with the combined races army, new technologies are discovered and incorporated.
2068: December: during a routine patrol sweep the Interceptor comes under attack from an unknown force, using advanced weaponry and armour they soon overcome the small Union fleet, only 3 ships out of 7 returns including the Interceptor. Records of the battle are examined and the true horror of the threat emerges, Claw tells of how his people were destroyed when they fought against a race called the Shalakians or 'Shadows' many years ago he tells Myric that these ships are Shadow ships and that the Union must prepare for war on a unimaginable scale.
2069: January: a call to arms is sent out as the Union preps for war, a small colony is destroyed by the Shadows with no survivors, Union forces are deployed and a battle is fought against the new enemy. The Shadows extreme speed, weapons and armour proves more than a match for Union forces, on the ground Shadow troops easily kill Union men in combat and in space their ships tear holes in the Union ships, the Union withdraws.
2069: June: the Unions war is not going well, the Shadows and their advanced tech causes the Union to lose in every theatre of war, a drastic re armament takes place, Mass drivers are developed to replace the old rocket propelled cannons to overcome the Shadows speed, and troops are trained with the help of Claw to shoot for the eye of a Shadow as its their only weak point.
2069 August: the Union finally engages the Shadows with its new technology and the battle is won thanks to the new methods and also the hard fighting of XCORE, things look up for the Union.
2069: December: the war is a stalemate with neither side managing to get the upper hand when suddenly the Shadows reveal they’re trump card, a planet killer. The machine blasts apart 3 colonies before the Union can react. Accompanied by a massive fleet an attack on the planet killer would be suicide.
2070: January: Claw tells Myric that the Shadows are all controlled by a pair of Shadows who exert a telepathic control over the whole race, when a warlike pair is in power they can make the whole race go to war, Claw advises Myric that if the pair are assinated then another pair would have to take their place and these two might be willing to stop the war.
2070: February: Emperor Myric calls the greatest assassins from all over the galaxy and tasks them with killing the Shadow leaders, all refuse saying it would be suicide to even set foot on Shalak the Homeworld of the Shadows. All apart from one. He calls himself Azgoroth of a race called the Godoroks or Titans; he accepts the challenge and sets off.
2070 April: the war is going badly for the Union when all of a sudden the Shadows withdraw and Myric receives a message from the Shadow Homeworld, the leaders had been assassinated and the new leaders had seen to seek diplomatic relations with a amazing sense of realisation he recognises the one of the new leaders to be none other than Surak, the two negotiate diplomacy. Azgoroth returns and is congratulated by Myric himself he asks Azgoroth if he would join the Union as a commander Azgoroth accepts. Claw while talking to Azgoroth is ecstatic to find out that the Godoroks are indeed still alive, and have finally founded a new home. Myric after securing a peace treaty with the Shadows asks the Godoroks to join the Union, at first they refuse as the Shadows destroyed their race but Myric convinces them otherwise.
2071: The Shadows and the Union sign a peace treaty and the Angel Reina advises Myric to induct them into the Union, Claw is outraged at the idea and demands that the Shadows be destroyed to avenge his people, Myric ignores Claws demands and welcomes the Shadows into the Union.
2071 July: Myric discovers that a planet of the Union has defected with a sizeable portion of space and ground assets. Determined that the ruler be brought to justice the whole of XCORE decide to lead the attack themselves, the battle in space lasts only 40 minutes as the Shadows lend they’re might to the attack leaving the governors space force a floating wreck. Karn begs Myric to let him lead the first wave instead of the Emperor, the Emperor reluctantly accepts. Some say Karn knew that he must die instead of Myric and as the Angel made planet fall the deranged governor detonated his stockpile of virus warheads and the whole world was consumed by viral infection. Karn just had time to tell Myric to call off the attack, hearing his friend scream as he was eaten alive by the Viruses was too much for the Emperor and he was consumed by rage. Duneyer and Claw tried to stop him but something in Myric’s mind was controlling him in his rage, the Emperor used his powers to tear the very planet itself apart. The Union was shocked at this but XCORE had lost a member and Karn would be mourned for decades to come.
2072: Another Angel is found on the mars colony, she is found to be able to manipulate electricity and is related to the person who designed AC110 many question her but Myric assures the population that all will be fine. Marlene joins XCORE.
2072: February: after the Emperor’s birthday Duneyer becomes pregnant with her first child, the Union celebrates and Myric is ecstatic about it.
2072: December: the first Angel child is born a son; Myric shows him to the Union for all to see and names him Kahalin much celebration ensues and Myric declares that the Union will work harder than ever to bring peace to the universe. Myric also creates the Union council made up of 2 representatives from each race; the council would handle everyday matters and leave the more important work to Myric.
2073: Another Angel is found by Myric, found on Lunar she calls herself Larissa and can control gravity, Myric welcomes her to XCORE. She makes herself at home but causes much conflict as she tries to manipulate the Entire members of XCORE to either sleep with her or end they’re relationships. The council decides to intervene and tells Larissa that she must face a court martial and if she loses she would be exiled, Ouka another angel gives her another proposition duel her and if Ouka won Larissa would have to stop sleeping around and help the Union this way she wouldn’t have to face the trial, but if Larissa won then she would still have to face the trial. Larissa accepted and deliberately lost.
2073 December: The Union comes across another race called the Jorgal, they are reptilian and are exceptionally dedicated to peace, they wish to become part of the Union and Myric accepts, the Jorgal using their extensive knowledge of trade helps the Union establish new trades routes.
The Violar WarsEdit
2073: Planets of the Union start reporting raids from unknown ships, these ships are reported to be immensely resilient to fire and have weapons that devastate star ships, hearing the news Myric heads to the nearest report with a huge fleet determined to find the enemy. When he arrives he finds a massive star ship surrounded by a supporting fleet. The ship seemed to be feeding off the local star and Myric tried to negotiate with the new race. The race calling themselves the Violar (though this is translated) refused peace and attacked the Union ships, the Violar craft were fast and had their weapons accounted for many Union ships. After the battle Emperor Myric only just managed to drive off the Violar through sheer tenaciousness and courage but the price had been great, the star was now not big enough to support the life in that system and also he had taken many casualties. The Union prepared for war once again.
2074: Many battles are fought all over the galaxy with Violar fleets devouring stars and destroying Union colonies. Myric implements a plan which using ancient technology lets the Union bring its most valued planets together into one system which is the Sol system. After it is complete Sol now consists of 4 stars and 25 planets, the whole system is surrounded by a massive system shield and many orbital defences.
2075: The system defences are tested as a Violar fleet attacks the Unions heart in an attempt to destroy the leadership of the Union, supported by a world ship of immense size Sol system comes under siege.
2075 November: The defence holds with help from the combined Union fleet and the world ship escapes but is heavily damaged in the process. Information from the remains of the ships gives the Union an insight on what and who the Violar are. It is discovered that they are inter dimensional beings that hop across dimensions harvesting a resource called Diterium this substance must be injected into their veins otherwise they suffer a fate far worse than death. They harvest this substance by accelerating the life of a star causing it to make huge amounts of Diterium, this then causes the star to die or worse supernova destroying everything around it. Union scientists explain to Emperor Myric that if we could get the Violar to stay with the Union the Union could set up Diterium harvesters on every star, meaning that the destruction of stars would not be necessary and that the total amount harvested daily would be enough to sate the Violar lust.
2076: Myric takes the Interceptor and finds the Violar main fleet. Consisting of a dozen world ships and thousands of craft, the Interceptor is outmatched, but it is not there to fight but to negotiate. Myric asks to see the Violar high council and in a surprising move they accept. After an hour Myric tells the council about his method and offers the Violar a permanent place in the Union and an unlimited supply of Diterium. The council send Myric away and say that they will contact him with their decision.
2076 August: a massive anomaly occurs in space and the Union goes to investigate. After sending two ships into the area with no success Myric takes the Interceptor in, something manages to get into the ship and heads straight for the bridge, Myric prepares for combat and a man appears, he attacks Myric with lightning speed. Myric dodges and after an hour of combat they stop as they cannot defeat each other. Myric laughs out loud and offers the individual a place in the Union, the person Wolf a being of great power accepts and takes the place of high assassin.
2076 December: half of the entire Violar race jumps into Sol system, the Union mobilises quickly to combat the threat but Myric gives the order to stand down. The Violar ships float there and one of the 6 world ships contacts the Emperor. Over half of the council had agreed to join the Union in return for a home and Diterium, these members had jumped here but the rest had not wanted to these were the xenophobic types and they continue to destroy Union forces and harvest stars in destructive ways. The Union aligned Violar agree to help the Union fight the others off and a civil war ensues.
2077: Many large combats are fought as the rebel Violar try to destroy the Diterium harvesters set up by the Union. Slowly the rebel Violar are either destroyed or give up as their stocks of Diterium run out, and as the Union stops them from harvesting any more.
2078: The last rebel Violar world ship is boarded and the inhabitants on board refuse to yield and spit on the Unions offer to surrender. Fearing a bloodbath if they try to storm the ship Emperor Myric decides to take the Angels and the commanders in to cleanse the ship, after a week of fighting aboard the giant ship every one of the rebels is killed as they fanatically try to kill XCORE and the Violar wars come to an end.
2078 November: the Union is finally at peace; all races work in harmony in the Union. The rest of the galaxy is explored and colonised and beyond into deep space satellite stations are set up to alert the Union of any intrusions.
2079: Much technological advancement is made in all areas most important are the medical advancements, a new type of drug is found and named the immortality pill and it does exactly what it’s called. Anyone who takes the pill slowly turns back to the point in their lives where they were the healthiest and stay there. All illnesses are gotten rid of and new genetic surgery stops and an all genetic disorders, the entire population of the Union is immune to everything but death by injury and new advancements in stem cell research and nano technology allows for almost total repair of the organic body.
2080: The Union is completely free from all morbidities apart from rebellion and extremist groups that are crushed by the combined arms of all races.
2085: Myric and the angels turn their attention to the ancient remains they keep discovering all over the galaxy, they lead expeditionary forces and uncover artefacts and technology from a long departed race called the Nakai, who were destroyed by some ‘great evil’.
2086: While investigating a world along the outer rim Myric stumbles on a machine which then activates and uses all the machines remaining power to remove Myric’s dark side from his body. At first Myric and some of the angels are pleased but then the discover a dark truth, in a separate part of the machine a creature of pure darkness awakes and with a awful cry of elation Sotek the demon inside Myric’s soul is free. After a brief fight between the two Myric watches as Sotek escapes into the galaxy.
2087: Myric while leading the hunt for Sotek comes across a planet of Nakai origin, he finds a temple of some sort and while exploring it he is visited by the Universe itself. The Universe reveals to Myric that he has the same genes as the Creator himself and that although not technically related Myric is taken aback when he realises that he is the Universes son, the Universe also shows Myric what he has created, billions of dimensions all parallel to each other governed over by the Universe but he also reveals that like Myric he too has a demon side Xanthos the destroyer. He also tells Myric that although he is the creator he is no god and wishes not to be worshipped. Myric leaves the temple and orders it destroyed at the Universes behest; Myric has a new goal to fight all evil in his father’s name.
2088: Scar old Emperor has carved a small dictator like empire out on the northern rim and is about to start fighting the Union openly when he doesn’t believe his luck, Sotek finds him and though the two hate each other at first Sotek realises though Scar is insane he can help him destroy the Union and all that Myric holds dear. Scar talks of a great enemy that ravaged the galaxy once before and that if Sotek used his powers to light up the galaxy in soul essence then they would be able to destroy the Angels once and for all. Sotek performs the ritual and it succeeds.
2089: Another angel is found Sebastian; he appears to be able to control Earth and is inducted into XCORE. Also some of the satellites beyond the rim mysteriously disappear.
2090: the Union is unexpectedly assaulted from all sides of the galaxy by an unknown enemy, caught completely off guard the Union rallies to war once again.
The Draken WarsEdit
2090: The Union faces war on all fronts and the bastion systems barely hold back the new enemy. The creatures the Union faced were more powerful than any previous enemy, their weaponry was thought to be anti and dark matter based and made shields and armour virtually useless, on top of this mass drivers, missiles and other solid projectile weapons didn’t work on their ships and so the Human ships which were the majority of the Union forces were hopelessly outmatched and outclassed in all areas. Also an exploration team sent to the deep space planet Tesslorah is lost rescue attempts are called off as the demand for ships is too high.
2091: Some of the bastion systems begin to fall, but the Union has still not been able to capture or examine any Draken tech, on the planet of Hadriens Hope the Emperor leads the Union forces in defence, after a week of constant fighting a being appears that represents a commander, he calls himself the Soul Monarch and proves to be extremely powerful, after the Emperor defeats him in a duel the Draken withdraw and the Union celebrates its first victory.
2092: Constant battles are fought all over the galaxy as the Draken throw themselves at the Union, their extremely powerful ships carve their way through Union fleets only the Shadows and the Phantoms have any real chance of defeating the Draken and they are stretched thin over the galaxy. Also it is made aware that the Soul Monarch is not the only Draken commander with extraordinary powers. Toxin a women who moves like a viper uses deadly poisons to kill her foe, decapitator a being slaved to the will of the sword he wills with a powerful demon inside, ravager another Talonian hunted down the rest of his race for sport and Sotek Myric’s demon who has taken up sides with the Draken. Upon hearing this XCORE redouble their efforts especially Claw and Myric.
2093: It is discovered that the Draken are the great enemy referred to by Nakai texts, the Unions morale plummets. If the Nakai couldn’t beat them how can the Union? But never the less Myric and the members of XCORE lead the way.
2094 May: the Forona incident, the bastion world is invaded by the Draken, the Emperor along with some XCORE members and some of his commanders as well as the enigmatic Wolf mount the defence, it holds just in time for Ouka and Shugo to arrive with reinforcements. The Soul Monarch reveals himself and while fighting Myric tells Myric a terrible truth, the Draken have a master who is more powerful than any angel. The Draken are defeated but at a cost. Battle fleet Scarus is completely wiped out Fororna IV is declared uninhabitable due to fallout from a destroyed ships reactor and Fororna III is left destroyed but is later rebuilt. After this Duneyer reveals that she again is pregnant.
2094 July: again like the Shadow wars the Union undertakes drastic re armament. A new mass driver round is developed that will penetrate the target and detonate within causing massive haemorrhage to the biological Draken ships. Missiles are fitted with new plasma warheads that prove to be very effective, and shields and armour are upgraded to be able to stand some chance against the Draken weaponry, and new weapons entirely are produced in order to curb the mass swarms of beasts the Draken deploy planet side.
2094 August: Intel is collected about a potential Draken staging area in the Dispair system and the Union gathers its entire working fleet to attack it, Wolf and his new unit Alpha Company are deployed to take out the system defences while Duneyer leads the fleet against the Draken. The battle is won but at a terrible cost, a quarter of the Unions fleet is wiped out, Wolf is taken prisoner by Sotek and the Dispair system is completely destroyed.

The Angels finally find the remnants of the Nakai, at first the Nakai are reluctant to talk with the Angels but then the Angels are bought before the council and they learn much. Myric tells them of what has happened, the Nakai already know of the events but the council refuses to come to the aid of the Union. They do however give the Angels access to the library of dreams which contains all the knowledge of creation.

2101: Emperor Myric reunites the Union and draws up plans for a defence. The first part of the plan is to improve defences to slow down the Draken and buy enough time for the Union to wipe out Capitol once and for all, this way Union shipping and outlying worlds will be safe from Capitol forces. This and the fact that Myric holds a grudge against Scar that he must fulfil, the Capitol belief is also an affront to Union beliefs and in the name of people's rights an army is mobilised.
2102: The Union successfully brings the Draken to a small stalemate on all sides and the Union prepares to destroy Capitol, The Angels themselves lead the attack and Myric personally takes to the field. The home world of Capitol is besieged and its space forces are destroyed by one of the Nakai ships. The Union then invades the planet, breaking the palace of Scars defences is easy and the Angels led by Myric slaughter their way through the Praetorian Guard and into the throne room. They are greeted by the royal guard of Scar who fight fanatically to protect their lord. They are wiped out to a man and Scar try's to attack Myric, Myric beats Scar easily and kills him on the spot.
2103: Emperor Scar is presumed dead to the Union public but he is actually alive. He is kept in a holding cell and subjected to hideous mental and physical torture for 3 months. Then Duneyer begs Myric to let her finally settle the vendetta between her and Scar for what he did to her during the Civil war. Myric lets her, Duneyer then slowly dissects Scar so that he is completely separate in parts, making sure he is still alive he is hooked up to a life support machine and left there for the rest of time. To suffer the fate of the untold billions he had destroyed and enslaved. Duneyer is finally satisfied and nobody is told the truth.
2104: An experimental weapon is completed with the help of the Nakai and all the other races, this 'quantum bomb' is then deployed on the western spiral arm of the galaxy for testing, with the whole of this space full of Draken forces the bomb is detonated and the Interceptor takes up position to watch the outcome, the Interceptor has to redeploy several times to escape the blast radius and a massive chunk of the galaxy is totally annihilated. The Union is both pleased and disappointed that the bomb has destroyed so much.
2105: Many battles are fought all over the galaxy with the Draken and again the Union is pressed into retreat as the Draken numbers start to rise again. The Nakai give the Union the technology of inter dimensional travel and the Union sends off many individual ships to many different dimensions in the hope of finding new technology, allies and a home from the Draken. A small ship is also dispatched to a neighbouring galaxy and manages to slip past the Draken unnoticed. This ship is commended by a suspected Capitol supporter and so is not expected to survive, he makes contact with another Empire but information is scarce.
2106: The solar system and all surrounding worlds are fortified beyond belief; the Union defends itself from the Draken constantly trying to hold back the hoard.
2107: The Draken attacks relent and all that is left of the Union is the Sol system, this will be the last stand a fight to the last, all defences are checked and reinforced. The Union waits for the inevitable end.
2108: The Draken attack on mass, the last battle has begun. The system shield and defences hold out for 2 weeks in holding back the Trillions of Draken ships that are attacking the system. The Union forces hold out and make the Draken pay in blood for every inch of ground they take, the Union forces led by the commanders and the angels fight with the fury of the heavens and the Draken are hard pressed to break the spirit of the Union. The Draken commanders deploy and raging battles of epic sizes are fought on the many worlds of the home system. Finally the Draken attack earth and, Xanthos destroyer of Worlds and creator of darkness takes to the field himself determined to crush the Emperor himself. In the resulting conflict Claw reveals that he in fact has already experienced this all before and that he must continue to loop in time so he can protect Myric he then against Myric's demands sacrifices himself and detonates the Dark Stars singularity drive in the Draken fleet destroying billions of ships, but still they come. The Angels fight Xanthos and Duneyer is killed by him, Wolf sacrifices himself to bring Duneyer back to life and the battle rages. After witnessing the atrocities of the war and seeing Duneyer die Sotek finally realises what he is and turns on the Draken with unrelenting fury, he vows to Myric that he fights for the Union and he manages to tell Safire that he has lied about everything and that Myric is actually her loving father. Xanthos continues to destroy Union forces and even kills Cirym, Myric and Sotek know what must be done and they use all their power together, this power flow creates a feedback loop of power which in a blaze of intensely pure light Sotek and Myric banish Xanthos from this dimension, in that instant the Draken are instantly destroyed as a wave of light so pure it resembles the light of the gods of old washes over the entire dimension. The war had been won.
Aftermath: The Union rebuilt and is now stronger than ever thanks to the Nakai and the discovery of the Dimensional forge which can create worlds and solar systems, all of its races are working together to create a better life. The Union now has land and allies in many other dimensions and has vowed to eradicate all evil wherever it may be. Myric and the Angels continue to lead the way, along with Sotek and Safire who both fight for the Union now. A whole planet Remembrance has been dedicated to all those who have died in the name of peace, the planet itself is a giant mausoleum where on every piece of polished stone names are inscribed of all those who fell because of the Draken.
