7800 to 10,400 AT: Outer Volumes Era
New Feature: Scrollable Timeline
This most recent Era marks the relative rise of new powers in what had been the Outer Volumes of Terragen space. While the older powers of the Inner Sphere are as strong as ever, they have many strange new rivals, and there are strange and disturbing events not only on the periphery of Terragen Sphere but all through the inhabited regions.

- Newton and the Newton Mass Transcendance - Text by Anders Sandberg
In 8344 AT, in the Newton system (Beta Oolonga, currently in Metasoft space) a Keterist awakening occurred, and over the span of twenty years a massive project of augmentation was instituted. In 8365 most contact with the system was lost, as it appears that over a very short span of time practically all inhabitants were transformed into transapientech constructs. The Newton System Intellect that emerged remained in limited contact with the neighbouring systems for a short while before vanishing. Currently the system is a research protectorate of Metasoft.
- Tribal Gathering of Historical Tuphz - Text by M. Alan Kazlev
9100s movement to bring together all the original "tuphz" of history, whether cloned or replicated or pozer bots, to serve as teachers and leaders of current Tuphz.
The project caused great excitement among tuphz members and sympathises throughout the Nexus, although marred by unfortunate rivalries between different Tuphz factions (in one case resulting in actual assassination). Among the historical figures (real and mythological) that were cloned, replicated, or found were several public domain Gilgameshes, Napoleans and Alexander the Greats, a replicant King Arthur, a clone of the (by then lost) original Joan of Arc pozerbot, a Chairman Mao Turingrade Bioborg (complete with Little Red Book), the John Wayne pozerbot, a Marcus Lee Clone, a visiting SI:<1 Adriana Yue Johannisdottir replicant (the pre-ascension version of Adriana Yue Oncehuman) presented by Hosoko Posthegemonic Management Network, no less that three Lady Kitsune (of Andromeda Kids fame) impersonators, a Broderik Paz personalike, and an authentic Virtual Gurl Copy who was presented as a gift by the Zooeum of Heroes.
