Timeline (Superpowers)

This is the abridged timeline of the Superpowers alternate history, stretching from its first Point of Divergence in 165 AD until the present day (2000 AD). The timeline spans three World Wars, the emergence of electrical, industrial and space age technologies as well as the foundation of colonies on both the Moon, Mars and several asteroids. To provide more specialized information, here are three timelines dedicated to distinct themes in human history :
Below is a detailed history of the Roman Empire from 180 to 1247 AD, and the Mayan Conglomerate from 395 to 1247 AD. This extended timeline explores the history of those two nations until just after the crucial year 1221 AD, when they encountered each other and became embroiled in a terribly long war. This detailed timeline is dated in both the Anno Domini and Ad Urbe Condita Calendars (AUC=AD+753 years), and is organized based on the reigns of the Roman Emperors from Sulla I to Magnus II. Over the course of those 1000 years or so, the Roman Empire goes from a mighty European country to the single most powerful entity in the Old World. Meanwhile, the Mayan nation goes from an assortment of unorganized City-states to an incredibly advanced kingdom covering the whole of Central Columbia as well as parts of North and South Columbia.

  • 1924 - A working turbine-liquid fuel jet hybrid is finally completed by Project Aetna. With a maximum velocity just bordering the speed of sound and a safe-range of 1,350 km, it was the ultimate vehicle of Roman-Mayan power
  • 1925 - Foundation of the 14th Golden Horde of Mongolia. In times of political stress, the Khan is able to authorize the recreation of the Golden Horde. For this, every able bodied man is given military training and a standing army is made out of a large part of this pool
  • 1927 - Weaponized Plague is developed in secret by the Inca for aerosol deployment. A method of releasing it through artillery is also perfected
  • 1928 - The Inca and Mongols together form an Allied Coalition to contain the power of Rome, Maya and Japan. Every nation excepting the Zulus, Ottomans and Khmerians, join the coalition
  • 1929 - Treaty of Melita is signed by the Heads of State for the Roman, Mayan and Japanese Empires, thereby forming the Viris Mundi (Global Powers or Powers of the World). The Allied Coalition, obviously, takes this as an aggressive action towards its members and acts preemptively. The Golden Horde is quickly flung at Japan's Korean holdings and the Inca launch a full scale biological war in South Columbia and Sub-Saharan Africa, resulting in millions of civilian deaths in the first month of the war, the Global War

*See Bellum Mundum for Events*Edit *See Bellum Mundum for Events* sectionEdit

  • 1932 - Signing of the Treaty of the Kor'na Yasse, formally ending the Global War
  • 1933 - Members of the Global Powers meet together in the Kor'na Yasse, now known as the Praetorium Mundum. Although it is still being upgraded to their standards, it is agreed that the newly christened Praetorium Mundum, is to be the headquarters for the Foedus Terrae, an international organization with the purpose of maintaining order on Earth
  • 1933 - First mammal is cloned. Inca scientists successfully create a living clone of the llama, the nations primary domestic animal. Though it comes to much acclaim at first, by the next year the creature has already expired, doing nothing to dissuade further attempts at the process
  • 1934 - "Mind of God" computer is upgraded and expanded using modern technology. It now has a storage capacity of 3000 PenteQuadis (OTL 1500 terabytes) and a processing speed of 3.6 TetrAmbs (OTL 3.6 GHz). Roman computers utilize solid state drive and photonic integrated circuit technology
  • 1935 - Tepeu I is the first man-made satellite to enter Earth orbit. It takes a photo of Europe and relays atmospheric data back to the ground. Though the rocket technology was Mayan, the computer equipment all had to be bought off of the Romans, and so it was nowhere near on par with the Roman's latest technology
  • 1936 - Beginning of the African Plague. A strain of influenza mutated somewhere in the Roman province of Swahilium begins to spread throughout Africa. Two months after the first outbreak, the Inca have a vaccine, but neglect to make this news international
  • 1937 - Death toll from Swahili Influenza reaches 60 million. At this point the Inca finally reveal to the world their vaccine, acting as heroes to the world community
  • 1938 - Romans launch their own satellite C-1. It is placed in geostationary orbit above Carthage, showing off the superior automated technology of the Romans. Powered by the sun, it is to remain in place to act as a relay station for communications between Melita and Carthage
  • 1939 - Detonation of Aztlan, the first liquid-based particle bomb (H-bomb). From this point onwards a sort of cultural rivalry begins between the Mayans and the Romans. Although it is a simultaneous arms race, and space race, there is little to no animosity or real danger in their competition. The driving forces behind it are the egotistical nature of both nations, with each trying to prove themselves Earth's greatest power

  • September - Nationwide celebrations following the 7th successful Moon Landing by Roman cosmonauts (7 is an important number in the modern Roman culture). The day before most of the landing team returned, the 21st, is generally considered the founding date of the city of Heliopolis on the Moon's surface, with the original Heliopolis having ironically been burned to the ground nearly a millenia ago.
  • October - Beginning of the Swahilium Civil War. Always having been the most downtrodden of the Roman Provinces, Swahilium has recently been seeing even harder times than usual, particularly after 29% of the population was wiped out in the pandemic over a decade ago
  • December - Swahilium's capital of Australafrica is captured by the revolutionaries. Sifocaeli of the CEL wipe out one of the rebel's convoys, killing their second-in-command

  • February - The First Cherubim Missile-Attack satellite is launched. This is a massive Roman satellite equipped with a large complement of Space-to-Surface Missiles capable of easily hitting even a small moving vehicle. Each missile is launched on a direct path from the satellite to their target and so, very little fuel is required for them as gravity does most of the acceleration
  • April - Following a minor border skirmish between the Ottomans and the Mongolians, Dalai Khan pays a visit to the Ottoman Sultan to ensure that peace is maintained
  • July - Swahilium Civil War ends a month after the recapture of Australafrica. Due to the fact that virtually anything being used by the rebels that is visible from space is quickly destroyed by rockets, their ability to fight against the Legion was reduced to almost zero. Once the Legion moved in to surround the city there was 5 hour standoff between both forces, at which time the rebels were obliterated by rocket fire upon coming out of hiding to combat the legionaries. Although less than 100 legionaries were lost during the war, the cost of weaponry put into combat was enormous, by most national standards anyway
  • August - Mayans create the first domestic Fission Power Plant. Built along the coast, East of Chichen Itza, the plant operates at approximately 2100 MW of electrical output
  • November - Designs for particle bombs are given to the Mongols by the Foedus Terrae in exchange for their continued secrecy over these weapon's existence

Following this event, the Emperor authorizes Project Prometheus, an attempt to produce an entirely self-dependent spacecraft
  • April - Creation of the Zulu Imperial Airforce. As a gift, the Romans give them four C-89 sifocaeli with complementary flight lessons
  • July - Romans develop their own cure for cancer, 10 years after the Inca and 2 years after the Mayans developed theirs. Unlike the Inca vaccine, and the Mayan photodynamic therapy, the Roman method involves releasing microscopic machines into the body designed to attach themselves to the body in the presence of cancer cells. They then begin to release heat into the tumor causing cell death after sevelar hours exposure. This is the first medical usage of nano-automatons
  • November - Following the completion of the 9,300 MW Tik'al Particle Reactor, over 40% of the Mayans electricity production is handled by nuclear power. This puts them at two-thirds of the way to their final goal of 60% of total power generated

Realizing the Mongols have some kind of massively destructive weapon, the Ottoman Caliph goes to meet the Alliance of Earth and warn them of this threat
  • May - Following weeks of discussion, the Alliance finally decides to come clean to the world about the existence of particle weaponry. The Inca, Ottoman and Khmer Empires are furious about this revelation and demand the termination of all nuclear weapon programs. Wanting to prevent the expected nuclear devastation of the world by the Mongols, the Japanese launch a blank ICBM across the Mongol Empire and then have it return the same way to come and crash into the Maria Nippona. Worried by this display of power, the Mongols sign a treaty with the Japanese wherein either side agrees to only use particle bombs in the event of such an attack on their own soil

  • April - There is a sudden uprising of over 2 million Platonist rebels in the Inca nation, the Alliance for its part is absolutely shocked by this and they immediately move several Mayan battalions, 3 Roman Legions and half of all Alliance forces to help protect the major Inca cities, the engagement is known as the Inca Revolution, but this is only the beginning
  • May - Only a week after the start of the Inca Revolution, Roman satellites detect a rapidly moving object originating from the Mjöllnir Nuclear Artillery Station that is headed for Europe. Protocols for this moment that have been in place for decades activate and the projectile, which is determined to have been nuclear, is prematurely detonated before even passing over Ireland. To the horror of the entire Roman people, the trajectory is calculated to have set it on a course for the city of Rome itself, and the detonation would most likely have killed over 10 million people, including the entire Roman government and the Emperor. The Empire immediately goes to war against the Confederacy and within a day so do the other members of the Alliance. The Bellum Aegidis has begun
  • August - First Battle of Durorium is the first major battle of war, with nearly the entire Danish fleet in action at once. The Roman city was torn apart by artillery fire and all of the defending ships, making up most of the Baltic Fleet, were destroyed
