ChronologyEdit

  • c. -100,000 B.C
    • Haydon, a race of people that have attained non-coporeal state of being, visits seven planets - Optera, Peryton, Karbarra, Praxis, Garuda, Spheris, and Earth - to engineer an evolution attempt in order to escape this universe and achieve god status and a reason for living. The Flowers of Life, originally found on Earth, are completely and utterly transplanted to Optera, Peryton recieves its mental generator, Karbarra is given a peat similar to the Flowers of Life, Praxis' population is gengineered to be females, Garuda's atmosphere is made into a Gaian one, and Haydon IV with its robot population is built as a storehouse/resting place for Haydon until an Event happens. Only Optera, with its Regis, remembers what Haydon actually looked like.
  • 1171
    • Zor is born on Tirol. Aeon Lanack
  • 1256-1490 a.l.
    • Quadrant exploration by the Tiresian techno-voyager sleeper ship Azstraph--the Venture.
  • 1520 a.l.
    • The Azstraph enters the Tzuptum system and inserts itself into orbit around Optera. Zor encounters the Flower of Life, makes contact with the Invid, and seduces the secrets of the Flower from the Queen Mother, the Regis. The Regis believes Zor to be Haydon returned, and Zor seduces her.
  • 1697 a.l.
    • The Azstraph returns to Tirol. Zor begins to experiment with the Flower specimens he has brought with him from Optera.
  • 1755-1836 a.l.
    • Zor conjures Protoculture from the Flower and eventually falls victim to the Compulsion placed upon him by the Tiresian Council of Elders. Origin of the Cult of the Three-in-One and ascendancy of the Robotech Masters. Fall of the Royal Hall, as the period known as the Great Transition commences.
  • 1920 a.l.
    • 16 Aeon "Robotech". Development of the spacefold drive. Creation of Tirol's clone population and neural reprogramming of the Zentraedi miner giants.
  • 88 a.r.
    • The destruction of Optera by the Zentraedi.
  • 157-500 a.r.
    • Consolidation of the empire of the Robotech Masters. The Invid, after a burst of monocellular reproduction, declare war on the Robotech Masters. The Invid use a combination of organic and inorganic technology in their war machine. The Regis chooses to stay at the evolved humanoid form she shared with Zor; the Regent devolves to feel his emotion of revenge.
  • 566 a.r.
    • Zor's voyages deliver him to Haydon IV, where he has a profound encounter with the planetoid's artificial sentience, the Awareness, and realizes that Optera was the pure source of the Flower of Life. Zor receives a vision of the Invid transmutation and realizes what he must do.
    • Zor designs and builds the starship that will come to be called the SDF-1 to carry out his Flower of Life reseeding program (hoping to return the Flower to the planet it had originated from, Earth), and backed by a group of loyal Zentraedi-begins his "quiet rebellion" against the Masters.
    • Zentraedi commander-in-chief Dolza forms an uneasy alliance with Zor, who has by now become hopelessly addicted to the dried leaves of the Flower.
  • 580-640 a.r.
    • Zor's clandestine seedings attempts take him to Peryton, Karbarra, Praxis, Garuda, and Spheris. The Flower of Life, however, once planted, calls to the Invid across the stars. The Invid Regis engineers the Sensor Nebula to broaden and pinpoint the range of the Invid's awareness of the planets that may have the Flower of Life on them. Each planet makes the Flowers mutate, becoming useless to anyone but the Invid.
  • 671 a.r.
    • Zor steals the single extant Protoculture Matrix from Tiresia and conceals it within the main Reflex drives of the SDF-1. The fortress, with its skeleton crew of loyal Zentraedi, is folded from Tirol's corner of the galaxy.
    • During a Flower of Life seeding attempt, the Invid takes knowledge of Zor's position and begins a raid. In the threat of the battle fortress falling into the Invid's posession, Zor sends his battle fortress to Earth, manned by a skeleton crew of Zentreadi loyal to him. Zor is killed and Commander Breetai is wounded during the same raid. Commander-in-chief Dolza orders Commander Reno to return Zor's body to the Robotech Masters on Tirol.
    • Interstellar war with the Invid, whose homeworld, Optera, had been defoliated by the Zentraedi, continues to chip away at the fringes of the Masters' galactic empire.
  • 1999

    • Dr. Emil Lang, after an initial recon of the ship (in the company of Roy Fokker, Henry Gloval, T.R. Edwards, and others), begins to unravel the secrets of an extraterrestrial science known as Robotech. Dr. Lang is accidentaly sujected to raw Protoculture, giving him a mindboost and making him an agent of the Protoculture.

They realize that the fold and drive systems aboard the SDF-3 were taken in their entirety from Breetai's original flagship, and the battle fortress could have been affected by the Regis when she left Earth.
