• 2119 - Zephram Cochrane inaugurates the warp five facility with Dr. Archer. It is often thought in the proceeding years that the Vulcans held back just enough to stop NX-01 from being launched. Some go as far as to say the Vulcans don't let humans go to the toilet without their assistance.

Hawkins, accompanied Captain Archer, Lieutenant Malcolm Reed, and science officer T'Pol on a mission to board the Vulcan starship Seleya, which the Enterprise crew had discovered derelict in the Expanse.

  • Nathaniel Hawkins earliest Starfleet member.

  • 2154 - February: One of Nathaniel Hawkins' earlier family relatives, MACO Corporal F Hawkins, is killed on the thirteenth inside a sphere trying to recover a memory core.

    The second Xindi superweapon is foiled by NX-01 Enterprise.

    The Vulcan V'Las government faked evidence that the Andorians were developing a weapon of mass destruction based upon stolen Xindi technology, they used this to justify a pre-emptive invasion of Andoria. They also aimed to discredit the pacifist Syrrannite sect by bombing the United Earth Embassy on Vulcan and framing them. Jonathan Archer worked with the Syrannites to discover the lost writings of Surak. V'las was overthrown in a coup and the works of Surak were adopted by the Vulcan culture.

    The Romulans, fearful of a union between the Humans, Vulcans, Tellarites and Andorians used a chameleon prawn-drone to attack the different forces whilst imitating ships of the other races.

  • 2155 - February 2155 - The Romulan sent a small spacecraft to collide with the planet Coridan at warp speed.

    The Ferasans take advantage of the situation with the Romulan Star Empire. The Ferasans, like the Romulans, are weary of the growing military strength and political power of Earth now that they lead the Coalition of Planets. The Ferasans have clashed with Earth before in the late 21st and early 22nd Centuries. As the Coalition of Planets has sent scout vessels and colonial missions into Ferasan space, so they have been boarded, their occupants killed and eaten. Captain Jonathan Archer and the Enterprise NX-01 is sent to investigate the attacks and negotiate a peace.

    Author's notes:

    The Kzinti were due to return in ST: Enterprise season 5 and to be the principal threat for that season. Building on the fan history for this species, and the unused story by Jimmy Diggs, this is the major conflict with the Ferasans/Kzinti that is resolved after the (larger) Romulan war.

A second hidden verteron array on Venus destroyed the Romulans and the NX class ships had been evacuated after Denobula had been attacked. Bryce Shumar and the Intrepid hid with a battalion behind Mars and attcked the remaining Romulan ships - six out of ten of the warbirds were destroyed before they retreated.

  • 2161 - United Federation of Planets is formed on July 4th. Starfleet Headquarters are set up in San Francisco on the American continent. The Presidential office is constructed in Paris, France. Several starbases are inherited from the period prior to the formation of the Federation.

  • 2169 - The Ferasan War is concluded. The Ferasans launched the war initially as a final attempt to secure their space. The appearance of Earth forces had been (correctly in their eyes) perceived as a threat to their space, after two wars against Earth the Coalition of Planets had negotiated away the Third Ferasan Conflict in 2155. With the Coalition now the United Federation of Planets, the Ferasans knew they were outgunned and outnumbered. Their hunting days would be over. The United Federation of Planets and Ferasan Patriarchy sign the Treaty of Sirius. The terms are as follows:

  • Full and immediate cessation of hostilities by the Ferasan Patriarchy against Earth and all other Federation member worlds and colonies.
  • Disbanding of all Ferasan Patriarchy military and naval forces, retaining only police border patrol forces and ships. Maximum tonnage of frigate size.
  • Federation inspectorate forces will be allowed access into Ferasan space, worlds and colonies at all times to verify compliance to the de-militarisation of the Ferasan Patriarchy.
  • Ferasan Patriarchy space to be limited to a 50 light year sphere. A de-militarised zone will be established around this.
  • Starfleet will establish a De-Militarised Zone force to both monitor the Ferasan people and also affirm the border of the Ferasan Patriarchy against outside threat forces.
  • Starbase 25 will be established as the oversight base for the Ferasan DMZ and Starfleet forces. All negotiations pertaining to, and with, Ferasan Patriarchy matters will take place here.

  • 2190 - Starbase 11 is completed and ready for the 23rd Century. [Since the U.S.S. Essex was commanded from Starbase 12 in 2167, was must presume that Starbase 12 was completed before Starbase 11. I guess constructing a starbase in orbit takes less time than constructing a base on a planet surface. Maybe Starbase 12 was dragged into position?]
