mmmm, I had one where I had about 9 different factions spread over 3 different systems. It's quite difficult to keep track of, but fun if you like micromanagement (which I do :D ).

Chapter I

Part 1: The dawn of space age.

20th January 2030

The powers begin their work on Trans-Newtonian tech.

Notably, the biggest Construction/Production expert is from the AU, namely Mariette Neethling, along with Fujimaki Yukihide, Japanese.

USA manpower shortages are evident. Installations run at 81%.
Japan too has problems, but these are mainly an annoyance, as industries are 99% efficient.

Industries begin producing maintenance facilities for the ships of the future.

25th January 2030

A conference between Oceania, Japanese Federation, China and India is set for the 4th of June.
This conference will decide about Indochina's future, so the leaders of Vietnam and Thailandia are present.

24th February 2030

Treaty of Rio: All the superpowers will forbid any nuclear bombardment on ground forces or defence bases. If a nation breaks the treaty
the other nations will consider the attacker as hostile and consider themselves at war if capable.

3rd April 2030

Japanese federation announces the world of a breaktrough into Trans-Newtonian Technology. Many nations are surprised of such a good
research team. Japanese scientists begin working on improvements on ground forces, since w/o nuclear weapon ground forces are the
only instrument for defense/attack.

10th April 2030

EU joins Japanese federation with TN tech. This led many nations to revise plans based on the fact that they were among the
fastest nations to achieve TN tech. Neutronium shortages are heavy since accessibility is very low.
EU cancels a programmed MF to begin works on converting industries ASAP. EU research efforts begin in the Propulsion, trying to design
reactors and engines based on TN tech.

15th April 2030

Japanese scientist point out how having a very skilled man commanding TN working is very useful in increasing various production areas.
Soon, other nations appoint a Governor.

25th April 2030

EU begins work for converting industries.

25th May 2030

USA are the 3rd Superpower that joins TN club, 1 month and a half after JF and EU. USA cancel a maintenance facility too speeding up
the industry conversion that is gonna begin soon. USA scientists begin researching Pressurised Reactors.

5th June 2030

The Indochinan conference takes place in Sorebaya, Java. The only important outcome is data from Vietnamese population, that would
prefer joining Japanese Federation, and in second place Oceania. A further conference is planned for the 16th of August, with the
Myanmar head of state participating.

10th June 2030

Japanese industries begin conversion into TN.

15th June 2030

Same fate for USA industries.

5th July 2030

SAAS joins trans-newtonian club. Research efforts are directed for Active sensors, as the best expert in the world, Emìlia Caldeira,
is part of SAAS research staff.

10th July 2030

China is now a Trans-Newtonian power. As the Neutronium crysis had a heavy toll on the number of MF (most nations canceled one),
chinese scientists are researching a way to increase mineral output.

15th July 2030

SAAS begins industrial conversion.

10th August 2030

China join the conversion party.

20th August 2030

European Union completes researchs on a Power Plant based on TN Technology. The next goal is to integrate this power plant into an
engine, using Thermo-Nuclear energy. The predicted power output is 25x a Conventional Engine.

The 2nd Indochinan conference opens with a Vietnamese declaration of a referendum planned for 1st January 2031. The voters will decide
between Joining Japan, Oceania or stay independent. A large "electoral" campaign is ongoing from the state to avoid people choosing
independence, as well aware that China's attack at that point is unavoidable. Thailandia is beginning to considerate the Oceanian
option, with their open markets and a land road for Singapore, the major commercial port in the Indochinan zone.

25th August 2030

CSCA is a TN power. Works begin for the Pressurised reactor.

20th September 2030

USA develop a Pressurised Reactor similar of the one EU developed.

30th September 2030

SAAS develop Active Sensor technology. SAAS scientists believe that a further sensor used for TN minerals detection could be possible,
and begin work for a Geosurvey Sensor.

5th October 2030

Oceania announces the world that TN tech arrived in Indonesia. Indonesian scientist try to replicate SAAS's success on an Active sensor.

5th November 2030

Japanese complete research on the first TN ground unit. The Mobile Infantry is designed with power suits, capable of surving in any
condition on a solid body, as a defending unit. Japanese expert Hakateyama Mito believes that an energy weapon CAN actually pass
through a thick atmosphere, being based on Mesons. Japanese Federation gives funding for a Meson Focuser.

15th November 2030

Indian Federation is TN. Scientists work on an Armor based on Duranium, capable of taking much more hits.

25th December 2030

SAAS announces that a new sensor can survey other system bodies and get a good idea of the TN minerals in the core.
Now, SAAS researchers begin to work on a ship capable of doing a survey of Solar System. First step is the nuclear reactor.


20th January 2031

Japanese scientist team led by Hakateyama Mito achieves a breakthrough on a meson focuser. Now, connecting the focuser with a Focal
opening a meson cannon could be produced. Work begins on a 10cm Focal diameter ray.

25th January 2031

After multiple checkings, the Vietnamese referendum gave the following result: 43% Join JF. 39% Join Oceania. 18% Independent Vietnam.
Voters % 98,7.
Since no 50%+1 has been achieved, another voting is set for 1st July, w/o the independence option. Ministers point out in talk-shows
how much Vietnam is vulnerable as independent.
CSCA Industry conversion begins.

15th February 2031

Indian scientists deploy a Duranium Armor. This armor is much more resistent than any Newtonian-Based Armor. Research
begins for a particle shield capable of blocking energy rays and missiles. Though many scientists believe it's actually possible,
many nations laugh at indian efforts.

19th February 2031

In the 3rd Conference intense diplomatic tensions occur. Everything begins when China asks why in first place they weren't included in
the referendum options. Vietnam's head of state points out that being not democratic, hardly people could choose joining China.
Arguing explodes and insults are thrown at each other, Japanese Federation joining the discussion and supporting Vietnam. Oceania
representants quietly chatting with Thailandese HoS about a possible joining into Oceania. Myanmar regime supporting China's position
led Indian people thinking that action could be pursued about military occupation and installation of a regular democracy within Indian
Relations between China and JF are now degraded by most diplomatics to "Poor", the usual Ante Bellum grade. Messages come from EU, USA
and SAAS for keeping peace, because industrial damages would be heavy in case of war, even w/o Nuclear weapons.
Many governments, which pointed as useless the armour researchs of IF, are buying consistent amounts of those new Armors for their
ships, and duranium quotations on Stock Exchange in NY are rising to new heights.

15th March 2031

African Scientists completed researchs on TN tech. Only Sunni Alliance is left w/o TN tech. AU begins working on
propulsion tech.

25th March 2031

Many shocking achievments in this week.
Both EU and USA announce that they achieved tech used for spacecraft engines based on Nuclear Thermal Power.
USA's disadvantage of more than a month in TN and manpower shortages were covered by much better experts in Power and Propulsion.
Both nations design an engine and begin projects for prototypes.
Japan research projects were unknown to other nations. Shockingly, an athmosphere-crossing energy weapon can now be designed by JF.
More details are unknown, and other nations don't know that mesons can trespass armours as well.
Miho projects a cannon and research begins for a prototype.
Oceania's Industrial conversion begins.

30th March 2031

More achievements in scientific field.
CSCA lags behind, but scientists now figured out how to build a Pressurised reactor. Works immediatly begin on engine tech.
Oceania announces the deployment of Active Sensor tech, similar to SAAS'. They also try to make a Geological survey sensor.

3rd April 2031

USA announces that the 1st TN Nuclear engine of history, the HP N2O "McNamee" Engine, is available for production. Its first vessel
will be a Geosurvey vessel, so work begins for a Geosurvey sensor.

6th April 2031

3 days later, EU releases the V1 E-TN "Porter", much similar to USA's McNamee Engine. EU begins work on Geo Sensors.

10th April 2031
