Editor’s note: Though this chronology represents the first valiant effort to put events on a unified calendar, it is hamstrung by a line of narration at the beginning of The New Voyage that places it at the end of 2201. For this to be true, all of the Comet Empire war would have had to take place in just two months. Unfortunately, there are too many inherent contradictions for this to be possible. But the author’s heart was in the right place.
