Here We Go...
Well, this is the first of three expected installments of the Combat Information Center's Wing Commander Timeline. The timeline will be released over the course of the next month in three sections: the pre-war era, the war era and the post-war era. The longest and most interesting will be the war era, although the section released today, pre-war, covers the most actual time.
This portion of the timeline pretty much clears up a lot of confusing regarding the development of the jump drive, for both the human and Kilrathi histories.
There are still a few odd points, which probably need further explanation. You will notice that all Privateer 2 related items seem unusual, mainly because Privateer 2 treats the Tri-System as having a seprate human culture which evolved much earlier. There is also some strangeness relating to Admiral Wilson's birth, which is listed as having happened in the last 25th century.
Thanks go out to the rest of the CIC Staff, especially Hadrian, who did the graphics and Byydo, who rushed off at the last minute to get some information from Privateer for me.
