- -30 A.F.
Sashli come into contact with civilization (Temp).
- -10 A.F.
Raharrs come into contact with a civilization (Temp2), which at that time was in early medieval stage of development. The contact causes chaos in spite of the efforts of the Raharr ambassadors, causing considerable unrest and almost led to a complete collapse of society. The result of this was huge spike in crime, hunger, and epidemics. The situation forced raharr representatives to take over the local governments for the sake of maintaining order. This case, in the future, will cause the introduction of the First Directive.
- 0 A.F. Raharrs gather a meeting of ambassadors of all known types and holds a conference to approve the Galactic Alliance of Civilizations, designed to simplify the processes of mutual relations and mutual assistance between different species of the galaxy, as well as to ensure due care with contacting new civilizations. The meeting is held for several months, after which the Alliance officially begins its existence. The construction of the Shining station in the neutral star system begins.
- 35 A.F.
Insectoids announce their presence in the galaxy by making an attempt to colonize a planet that was already colonized by the raharrs shortly before. The resulting conflict results in the destruction of the colony and threatens to escalate into full-scale hostilities. The raharrs mobilize their forces.

Sashli accidentally discovers the insectoid worlds and peacefully contacts them. After clarifying the situation with the attack on the raharr colony, the Sashli begin attempts to reconcile the two sides and avoid conflict. Insectoids, contrary to expectations, quickly understand the situation from the raharrs point of view and begin to facilitate peace in every way. Officially, the truce was established in 46 A.F.
- 50 A.F.
In the neutral territories, the Shining_Space_station was completed, which became the intergalactic political and economic center of the Alliance. The shining begins to be used as a marker of the center of the Alliance. The station time is also taken as the standard time by which the daily periods of the planets belonging to the Alliance can be synchronized. Together with the creation of the station, the development of an interplanetary information exchange network called G-network is being completed. In spite of this, the steady growth of demand for couriers and messengers continues in the galaxy, since the tranfer of information between the various planets and space stations through G-net can take months, or even years.
- 54 A.F.
A research ship in the distant borders unexpectedly encounters a completely new energy based type of sapience. The creature accidentally possesses the ship's central computer, which almost causes the death of the entire crew. The incident was fortunately resolved, and the energetic being takes them to galactic coordinates that turn out to be a territory of a species called the Ziort Volume.
- 66 A.F.
Insectoids join the Alliance on a full-fledged basis.
- 69 A.F. The loss of the original culture of (temp2) is declared officially - the chaos caused by contact with the raharr and the subsequent occupation strongly distorted local cultures, replacing them with a more mature and attractive raharrian culture. Because of this, the desire to get out of the raharrs control and restore the lost legacy is gaining popularity in the society of (temp2), to the point of rising technophobic and anti-intellectualistic social trends.

The Orsal Agreement was drafted and signed, prohibiting the development and use of all weapons based on a hyperspace generator or capable of destroying life on the planet on a macro scale. The agreement was supported even by species that were not part of the Alliance. Besides the ban on weapons, the agreement also enlarged the FTL-restricting passage zone around space stations and planets.
- 87 A.F.
The Shining station receives a hundred-thousandth resident and becomes the most populated artificial space object of the Alliance.
- 88-92 A.F.
Vainur Incident. A contact with the Vainur Directive is established. Having a dominant form of government on the planet heavily resembling militarist Nazism, the Vainurs reject the proposal to join the Alliance and establish hostile neutrality, stating that the true race has nothing to do in the community of intelligent animals. However, the Alliance allows the Vainur ships to move freely throughout their territory. However, attacks and abductions on the raharr begin to occur across the galaxy. As it later turns out, the Vainurs were extremely interested in the ability of the raharr to assimilate any organic matter and poisons, so they began to hunt them for the purpose of extracting and processing the raharr intestines. In addition, they were anatomically interested in not only the raharrs, but also other species as well. By the time the true motives and culprits were revealed, the total number of deaths reached several million. In response to the indignation of the Alliance, the Vainurs openly declares war, despite the Alliance's quantitative and qualitative superiority. Following this, the Alliance organized a punitive action, destroying all Directive ships and deporting all Vainurs to their homeworld. A blockade was imposed on the planet and the Vainurs are forbidden to have any kind of space fleet, although they are allowed to leave the planet only with a special visa. A vote was also held, the theme of which was the invasion of Vainur itself and the forced change of the form of government, but the necessary number of votes “for” was not received. Afterwards, the Vainur Directive terminates all ties with the Alliance, responding with a refusal to all offers of material assistance. A warning is also sent that "any nonhuman who set foot on the holy lands of Vainur will be immediately killed." Since then, the planet has remained in isolation, remaining faithful to its warning and firing on any ship attempting to land.

Expansion of the territories of the Alliance leads to the discovery of the Laymaran civilization.

An attempt to research an unusually behaving star results in the discovery of one of the Azinarsi worlds, after which the expedition ships are forcibly escorted to a distance of one light-year from the star. This becomes the only case where the Alliance ships were in the Azinarsi territory and could directly observe their structures — almost immediately after contact, the Azinarsi deployed their isolation policy.
