I used to have my science fiction universe outline/recorded in wiki form. After taking a break from updating it a while I found out the web host, WetPaint, had cease to run as a wiki hosting site. Since I had lost all that information I was disheartened to make up the universe notes again. It is still in my head but on paper ( digital paper ) is a lot to put out there. I think I will stick with a Niven-eque where the universe is created and you can connect the dots later to create a galactic history.
One little tidbit I found in my google drive that was of interest ( but out of date, changed ) was a timeline I had started with. Again, with many of the ‘as seen in story <blank>’ these stories exist in outlines only or more likely in my head alone. The biggest edit is the timeframe, but the order of events are probably close enough. Enjoy!
