what would you say are the biggest (5-7 or so) of the junctures in the OA universe? the introduction of nanotech? the great first singularity? the great expulsion? first contact with xenosophance? i'd like to write about one of these events from the PoV of an 'everyman' character (although i don't like that term, it's weighted).

We have a few timelines that can help you with this:

Historical timeline (short summary)
Technology timeline
History (has links to timelines from each era)
Scrollable timeline

If you want a list of events:

- The nanodisaster (I wouldn't advise this at the moment because it's in the midst of a major rewrite)
- The great expulsion (similar to above but could be done)
- Formation of the First Federation
- First and second Vec war
- Version war
- Appearance of the first Archai
- Rise of the Second Federation (this could be good as it's an important part of history but we tend to focus on the early and late timelines)
- Establishment of the ComEmp Period

There are plenty more Smile just go digging in the EG

check your PMs, bro.
your praise is sweet
