We have a great Timeline that Laura Mumma did us a great service by pulling together a lot of data on that. 

I'll upload the doc I'm submitting to the magazine to the uploads section of this project very soon

That said Alpha Dawn plus is an expanded and timeline with "Currated" additions from fan cannon and the despised Zeb's guide

For example: Yazirian Star Exodus- fan cannon- this would go in

Blue Plague and the MSO from Zebs in but the stupid plague planets out.

The mechanon entries in Zebs are worth including

I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Dates may change to better integrate with the AD timeline

10,500 PF Last Remnants of the mysterious Tetrarch Societies die out.

950 PF Heliopes left on Starmistby Clikks after a Clikk military vessel is forced to jettison unnecessary cargo

? Day of Doom- Sathar visit  Volturnus and wipe out eorna civilization

800 PF the evolution of the mechanon Species begins on Volturnus

410 PF First Vrusk/Dralasite contact

350 PF First Vrusk/Human contact

270 PF Yazirians enter the Frontier

Note according to zebs Zebulon System is discovered 61 PF but previously we had established that the AD age of adventure was 50-70 PF and that is when the published modules occured. 

Note: Zebs says Alorne Zebulon discovers Zebulon system when "A Volturnus Connection" says it was Sectite Zebulon- my harmonization would be that it was Alorne S. Zebulon.

25 PF A small pirate fleet under Hatzck Naar raids Cassidine and Prengular system. The First Common Muster is called. 

22 PF Hatzck Naar pirate fleet defeated off Timeon. Naar is ejected into space and slowly boils inside his spacesuit as he falls toward Timeon. The Muster is dismissed. 

10 PF First attempt at forming a unified defense and mutual interest organization.

3-2 PF Sathar War (first SW but illogical to call it that till there is a second one)

3 PF Sathar first appear and attack Truane's Star system. 

3 PF Pale and New Pale fall. The Great Exodus to Dixon's Star take place. 

2 PF the four species muster a space fleet. The Second Common Muster is called and put under command of Admiral Morgaine, who immediately moves the fleet to Cassidine system. 

2 PF The Battle of Triad. Morgaine's Fleet performs a surprise attack on the invading sathar Fleet intent on ravaging Triad. The Sathar lose a third of their fleet. 

2 PF Dixon's Star is attacked by a sathar fleet. Completely unprotected it is soon ravaged. Morgaine moves his fleet to Prengular.

2 PF The Stathar attack Gran Quivera in the Prengular system. The Battle of Two Fleets is fought. The sathar fleet is routed and destroyed. Morgaine's fleet is seriously depleted and Morgaine dies in battle. With the mutual devastation the First Sathar War comes to an end. 

1 PF Morgaine's World in the Prengular system is named after the fallen admiral. 

1 PF The "Grand Meeting" of leaders of the four species takes place on Morgaine's World.

1 FY The United Planetary Federation, a mutual defense organization is established. All the worlds of the Frontier, expecting another sathar invasion, immediately join. Under UPF authority, Spacefleet becomes a permanent defensive force. 
The order in which planets are colonized also makes no logical sense. 

This is what I would adopt out of the early timeline. The play by play of this system colonized this year, this system discovered this year makes no sense at all. White Light being discovered in 60 PF? When its monarchy has been around for 400+ years? Rubbish. 

I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

We need a 400 year time block for the Clarion monarchy to exist, Minotaur and Clarion are probably among the first human worlds colonised. I would bring the first contact events closer to PF 1 or 0. 400 -350 years seems a bit too far back.
