    Post Chen's timeline rework and supplemental lore.

    This is a large supplement to the CM lore I've crafted, I've changed dates I felt were wrong or unfitting and added a ton of things that in my opinion are sometimes memes but mostly fairly realistic as far as Science Fiction alternate realities go. It takes Aliens lore, and my own AMAZING ideas and fits it into something copy-right free that we can use to really flesh out our universe.

    Take note this is an unofficial expanded lore. Should any lore wrote by myself be accepted to CM it most certainly would follow this outline but with most of this being supplemental it would be stripped down. The Lore parts of our wiki will never have the name Danny Devito in them sadly. Take this as I've said, a supplement, correction and expansion of both unofficially accepted and officially accepted lore.

    If youve got any ideas for anything new, think anything should be changed, or anything else like that just comment bellow. Im totally down to see what ideas other people got. Im sure I missed some stuff. I won't however be removing anything outright. This is largely expanding the universe. Odd things happen and while they might not go into the offical cannon this is still an alternate universe where any of this could have happened if we will it.



    1982:
    Sylvester Stallone desides to not make a third Rocky Movie. This plays a critial role in preventing the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    1987
    A nuke Explodes in Mismaloya, Mexico. Official government claims it to have been an illegal test supervised by a Rouge Mexican Nuclear Scientist Juan Gomez. Unofficial conspiracy theory's believe it was a show of force by Ronald Reagan in the war on drugs.

    The reality of events however is much different. The entire cast and crew of the movie Predator are killed by the resulting blast. In reality their movie had seemingly turned to life as a real alien hunter attacks their film crew. Unlike the movies script however everyone dies via the Jungle Hunter and his explosion after he is defeated by Arnold Schwarzenegger putting the Predator into a Full Nelson as Carl Weathers flies a helicopter into them.
    John McTiernan never directs Die Hard so the movie flops and doesn't become a traditional American Christmas movie.
    Arnold Schwarzenegger never stars in The Running Man, Total Recall, and Kindergarten Cop.

    Sylvester Stallone takes Arnold's place in all fills other then Kindergarten Cop, which instead stars Danny Devito in one of his greatest roles of all time becoming an instant classic. With Stallone staring in these new and original movies, in keeping with his new found dislike for trilogies, he doesn't make a third Rambo movie.
    Due to this movie never being made, the Soviets find their second wind and take over Afghanistan spreading communism across the middle east thus preventing their collapse due to the influx of oil money. While prolonging the cold war indefinitely this does prevent the future war on terror from our current timeline.

    1990:
    Despite their success in the Middle East, tensions are high in the European parts of the Warsaw pact. Many nations seek their Independence as the fruits of Soviet expansion in the east haven't made their way home yet. Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Romania all make their exits from the Soviet Union and instead look to joining the Capitalist European Union. East Germany also reunites with West Germany after a political movement based on German reunification and exceptionalism is spread by a man with the last name Mueller. This Muellerism becomes a popular ideology but never gaining any majority in the new German Parliament.

    2001, September 11th:
    A normal day at the office for all men and women working at the world trade center.

    2006:
    Pluto is unclassified as a planet

    2018:
    Full Brexit actually happens. Britain quickly begins to go bankrupt with riots and marshal law declared. The royal wedding between Prince Harry and Megan Markel never happens after Queen Elizabeth comes to an early grave due to the stresses of her countries decline. Prince William is crowned King, stepping over a sickly Prince Charles in a royal coup supported by the Grenadier Guards and Coldstream Guards. Irish, Welsh, and Scots Guards try to support Prince Charles but without public support they commit suicide or are captured and executed as traitors to the crown.

    Scotland and Wales both try to take their independence back but are suppressed by the military, Only North Ireland manages to leave the UK reuniting Ireland's 32 counties after Irish Military units move into the north to support the secessionists before the UK can stop them like they did to Wales and Scotland.

    2020:
    Britain's economy is bought out by Japan after declaring Full Bankruptcy. The two nations Royal Families marry into each other to cement the nations new unity. Prince Harry is forced to begrudgingly marry Princess Aiko Toshi after her father is crowned Emperor. A new nation is formed known as "The Sea and Sun Empire".

    With the foundation of the new nation the old Japanese policy of self defense is abandoned in favor of a return to Imperial ways. The parlements of both nations (Not as if Britain had a parliament for the last year or so anyway) are discarded as failures and the nation transitions to Royal rule once more.

    2030:
    Terraforming begins on Earth's moon Luna, first headed by Joint Anglo-Japanese Corporation known as "The Company". Nations from around the globe will send their best and brightest families to establish colonies on the surface over the next 10 years, rapidly expanding as a flood of rare minerals are found beneath the planets surface drawing in a high demand for people seeking riches mining the surface and supporting the growing infrastructure required to maintain the mining efforts. In many ways it mirrors the Westward expansion of the United States in the 1800's, just more culturally separated as nations carve out their own slices of land. Still, things remain peaceful with no blood shed for many many years.

    2039:
    "The Company" being the foundation of the Sea and Sun Empire's space program announces their first terraforming operations intended for Mars. They launch in late 2039 with full Anglo-Japanese crews.

    With the rise of moon and soon Mars colonization rebounding economies around the globe, stress is put on the EU when it begins showing that they have the smallest and least developed colonies on Luna due to their disunity. Germany, being the dominate power in the EU attempts to take full control of EU colonial affairs that had previously been run by a coalition comity of all participating EU states. The French refuse to agree with this and take action for a French Exit of the EU. Germany refuses and fighting breaks out along the Alsace-Lorraine boarder region. Most of the EU refuses to take part until strong armed by the Germans. The French receives American and Sea and Sun Empire support. This war will become known as WW3. Russia and China will remain neutral but covertly supply the German EU in an attempt to weaken the western powers. The moon colonies will do what they can to stay neutral but tensions are high.

    2040:
    With the war stalling in France the EU sends forces to attack French holdings on the Moon. With the collapse the French holdings, American and Anglo-Japanese holdings are flooded with refugees and even take some collateral damage. This brings both the USA and the Sea and Sun Empire fully into the war as they refuse to allow the war to cause any harm to their economic interests on the moon.

    2041:
    The Sea and Sun Empire seizes Ireland, Greenland, Iceland, and Taiwan under the pretext of protecting them from either communist or EU aggression.

    2042:
    With the other major powers fully invested in the war the German controlled EU quickly finds itself out numbered and out gunned. With the launch of Space D-Day by the Joint American-Anglo-Japanese armies into occupied French Colonies then Space Operation Market Garden following it into occupied Dutch and Belgium colonies, the path to Neo Berlin was paved in the blood of countless krauts.

    Soon after the colonies fell Germany surrenders back on earth. Having only invaded France and inexplicably nuked every South American countries capital Germany was only given economic sanctions and forced to take a back seat to France. They would give up their colonies to the Sea and Sun Empires and give great financial compensation to the United States. France would rejoin the EU but as the new economic leader now supported by the US.

    Pluto is reclassified as a planet purely out of love for the little guy.

    2044:
    The American based company Thiokol-Rockwell invents the first FTL Drive. "The Company" in partnership with many other engineering business as well as Thiokol-Rockwell announces their intent to build ships with this engine to colonize planets beyond the Sol solar system.

    2049:
    Waypoint Station begins constructed in Earth orbit as an international project with even the Soviets and Chinese participating in the effort. The station is to act as a checkpoint and hub for travel between Earth and the growing outer solar system colonies. Large cargo is still handled by individual countries in their own ways.

    2052:
    The United States of America purchases the Sea and Sun Empires portion of Pluto becoming the first nation to fully own a planet in the sol system. The resulting mass American colonization of the colony give it the nickname "Space Texas" to many foreigners.

    2054:
    Waypoint Station is complete.

    2058:
    "The Company" files for US government contracts for terraforming operations on new colonies outside the Sol system. This begins a transition of company focus from Sea and Sun Empire contracts to UA ones. Tensions rise between the SSE and USA and a triangle cold war is formed between the two of them and the commie block nations.

    2063:
    With the incredible growth of FTL travel colonization has expanded beyond what had been expected. To protect their interests beyond the stars many governments look to forming their own Colonial Military Forces. The first is the United States of America, taking from the best of the United States current branches The National Security Act of 2063 establishes the United States Colonial Marines as a department of the Space Force. After initial recruitment their number would total 160,000 uniformed combat personal.

    2069: Nice
    Having never recovered from the German attacks on them during WW3 the many nations of South and Central America are impoverished and weak, degrading to a level bellow that of many African colonies, especially after the Sea and Sun Empire have taken control of much of Africa and improved it greatly. Nearing collapse the many nations of South and Central America join in a union with the prosperous United States of America and Canada forming the United Americas under the leadership of the USA.

    2076:
    On the Tricentennial of the the founding of the United States of America fringe terrorists from the outer colonies take hostages at Waypoint station. The resulting counter terrorist operation lead by USCM special forces is a complete flop resulting in the destruction of a large portion of the station completely disabling it for years. This would be the first and only terrorist action by outer colonists for many years.

    2095: Construction of Sevastopol Station begins. It is to be a freeport and commercial outpost for multiple corporations operations in the Zeta Reticuli sector in orbit of KG-843. It houses at most 500 permanent residents on the station itself with capacity for 3000 total people at once.

    2100:
    In celebration of the strength and unity of communist nations on earth and their progress in forming joint colonies rivaling the UA and SSE, the Soviet Union and China along with their many puppet nations officially join together to form the Union of Progressive Peoples. Their bond had been strong for nearly 100 years already so little changes in galactic or Earth based political power dynamics.

    2104:
    Discontent with the handling and exploitation of the colonies by their mother and father nations, many non-UPP colonists now a generation or two separated from Earth begin to feel early desires for independence. Political agitation begins on any colony outside of the Sol System but rarely does anything happen.

    2105:
    Sevastopol station comes online, two years behind schedule.

    2119:
    Plans are drawn up by the United Americas for two stations to be constructed. Gateway Station in orbit of Earth to act as a cargo hub for ships coming and going from the Sol system. Then Ram Ranch Station in orbit of Pluto to serve as a USCM training facility.

    2122:
    The USCSS Nostromo goes missing.

    2127:
    SEE Colony on Titan fully covers the moon, forming a strong economically prosperous hub "world"

    2130:
    Construction of Gateway station is fully completed and opened to use for all partners of the UA.

    2131:
    Ram Ranch Station is completed, in essence it becomes the Paris island of space as it's used to test and train many new recruits in the trials of Space combat. From intense close quarters boarding actions to zero-g knife fighting in the showers Ram Ranch station really rocks.

    2137:
    Sevastopol station falls out of orbit of KG-843 and burns up in its atmosphere. The reason for the event is unknown however due to the fact the station was already set to be decommissioned it wasn't that much of a loss.

    2159:
    Hadley’s Hope colony is established on Acheron LV-426.

    The Arikara-class patrol transport vessel is designed and begins manufacture for use by the USCM. 10 of these ships will be made in the next decade including the USS Almayer

    2164:
    The Cristóbal Massacre takes place, leading to growing tensions in the colonies. In a Desert Storm style operation USCM forces are deployed to Cristobal and swiftly take down a colonial freedom fighter who had lead a colonial militia and convinced the planet to declare its independence. The resulting massacre is largely covered up with official number of dead colonists tallying up to 258, when in reality thousands of non-violent civilans had been murdered. Back in the sol system no one takes notice or cares, but in the colonies many take this as their time to go more underground or to come out to the light and start fighting.

    2165:
    The Tientsin campaign is fought by the USCM against colonial secessionists attempting to join the UPP. Man power is drawn from other branches with the peak number of troops at any one time hitting 549,500 strong with over 9 million serving in total. Due to the Jungle climate and familiar danger and enemy tactics the conflict is nicknamed "Space Nam". Fighting will last several years.

    2169: nice
    The M41A pulse rifle enters basic USCM service replacing the M-16.

    The Tientsin Campaign ends but many troops take the war home with them. Slurs like Beebop, B-Boy, Bugboy, and Watanabe are spread as colonial conflicts spread. Veterans of the conflict often have a strong hate for colonists with little or no sympathy for them. Those who leave the Corps often came back after just a year to keep fighting colonial conflicts as they spring up around UA and "Company" space.

    2170:
    UD-4 'Cheyenne' Utility Dropship is put into production

    2171:
    USS Almayer is christened as the last of the Arikara-class Patrol Transport, it's outdated before it leaves the dockyards and was slated to be scrapped before a need to replace a recently lost ship of it's class was found after CLF agents managed to board a ship and trigger it's self destruct.
    Upon return from it's first test flight it gets into a docking accident with the USS Sulaco at Gateway station delaying it's deployment to the UPP boarder region by 1 month.

    2172:
    Arcturians are discovered on their home planet of Arcturus.

    2175:
    The first reports of rumors of a supposed species of intelligent hostile xenomorphs show up. They're noting but rumors and not taken note of.

    2178:
    USS Almayer is retrofitted. Upgrades included: sensor updates, implementation of the ARES AI system, expansion of troop capacity from 2 to 4 squads, a rearrangement of upper deck space with the addition of a Corporate Liaison Office, all engines being placed on the lower deck, new models of the UD-4 Dropship, Stocks of the M41 Mk2 pulse rifle and L42 Carbines.
    The Almayer is redeployed to begin patrolling Corporate funded outer-rim colonies in UA space along the Anglo-Japanese boarder.

    2179:
    Hadley’s Hope goes dark; USS Sulaco is sent to investigate and subsequently goes missing.
    USS Sephora, dispatched to investigate the USS Sulaco, goes missing.

    The Fiorina 161 prison is closed down

    2181, Oct:
    The Dust Raiders with their flagship the USS Alistoun withdraw from the Tychon Rift Sector leaving only a small force on a loyal "Company" backwater jungle colony at an outpost designated 'Whiskey-1'.

    2183:
    Space Beast, written by Robert Morse, is published and banned.

    2184:
    A new rise in CLF activity or something else entirely has seen an increase in the number of colonies going dark along the outer rim's of each sector of UA space. Distress beacon responses rise.
    As well, the UPP and SSE have been increasingly stand offish towards the UA and each other.

    2186:
    The USS Almayer sets out for the Tychon Rift Sector.

    2189:
    Current year. Total Man Power of the USCM is 330,000 with 100,000 reservists.
    The Almayer has visited many colonies across it's sector and come into contact with very little CLF compared to the USCM average. Most of it's missions are completely mundane.

    Current Day:
    A distress beacon is going off somewhere.. the USS Almayer is in route to investigate.. destiny is right around the corner for the men and women of the USCM.

    Kinda nice, but I'm not a fan of the idea of adding any events after the 70's to our lore. After all, it's an universe based on the cold war mentality, with ultracapitalism, communism and high tech space travel
