So, finally getting some time to reply to thisSmile

As you might have noticed, it's pretty normal here for anyone and everyone to reply to any post or question that comes up. Just all part of the fun Big Grin

thanks for the help!

Hmm. I would say there are various major junctures that might be broken up into different groups:

Technological:

Invention of DNI
Invention of Nanotech
Creation of AI
Invention of Uploading
Development of Interstellar spaceflight
Creation of Provolves
Creation of Neogens

Culture/Civilization:

The Nanodisaster
The Great Expulsion
The First Federation
First Contact
The Version War
The Amalgamation War

Toposophic:

Creation of each new S-level (because each one drastically changed civilization when it first appeared)
Transapients take over running civilization (and this is accepted by most).

Sorry that there's so many, but it's a big setting and a long timelineSmile

Hopefully, one or more of these will provide inspiration for a story or two.
