Timekeeping in the Terran Autocracy


By the time of the Terran Autocracy the Gregorian Calendar (the calendar we use today) is no longer in use and has been replaced by the “Oenotrian Calendar” whose years begin, not on January 1, but on December 21: the Winter Solstice.


The years used by this new calendar are labeled: A.S. for “Anno Scienta” (or “After Sputnik” for the layman).
These years count from the launching of Mankind’s first satellite in 1957 A.D. (1 A.S.)
and begin on December 21, 1956 A.D. (1 Capricorn, 1 A.S.)


Any years occuring before this date are labeled B.S. for “Before Sputnik”
Therefore December 20, 1956 A.D. = 30 Sagittarius, 1 B.S.





The Oenotrian Calendar:

The Rise of Civilisation on Earth
c.11,600 - 100 B.S.





The History of Civilisation begins some twelve thousand years before the advent of Space Travel, when the first human beings left their cave-man ways behind and began to grow crops and settle in villages. During the next few millenia, the first villages became the first walled cities, the cities banded together to form the first kingdoms, and the kingdoms were conquered to form the first empires.

Over the centuries, these early civilisations would rise and fall, but eventually, some four thousand years after the construction of the pyramids, the spark of reason would ignite in the minds of a gifted few in the continent of Europe. A spark that would lead to an age when the light of science would enlighten the world and Man would grow to such a power that he was ready to conquer the universe...

With the advent of industrial technology, the first Global Civilisation (centered on Europe and the American Republic) spread across the Earth.
Building on the accomplishments of the Industrial Revolution and fueled by oil, Western Civilisation rose to heights unparalleled by anything that had come before it.
In addition to nuclear power and space travel; television, computers, genetic engineering, and robotics were all invented during this period. But like the mythical Faust, the people of the Old Civilisation asked for too much, too fast. Depleting most of their resources in little more than a century, they were ultimately doomed to destroy themselves in fiery conflict.
