Updated SD 2261.130


Introduction

Below is a timeline of the vents of the second mission, beginning with the first post of MD 1 and ending with the post that occured on the most recent mission date.

Please keep in mind that this is not a timeline of when each person posted, but a timeline of the events in our posts in relation to one another. This means that the latest event is NOT NECESSARILY from the most recent post. That is why this timeline is kept: to help the players more readily grasp the true sequence of the events about which we write.

Concerns about the timeline should be addressed to Rob Meier.

Lusby                           Veld, and goes so far as to interpret it as a
                                possible conflict with the Prime Directive. ("A

                                little more one another than they had bargained

                                where she disables (?) the portal and captures
