Events Edit


January Edit

  • January 1: The N! channel debuts on cable and satellite systems in 47 countries. A spinoff of the E! channel, N! is dedicated solely to the activities of novas. Among other features, it includes biographies of popular novas, quasi-scientific explorations of nova abilities and physiology, nova sports, and nova-related news from around the world. By April, N! becomes the highest-rated channel ever.[15]

February Edit

  • February 12: An editorial appears in the New York Times, entitled "Should Justice Wear a Mask?"[16]

March Edit

  • March 5: In an N! intra-departmental memo from Geoffrey Gold, VP of Programming, to Anne Binghamton, Director of Programming, Gold asks Birmingham to have a lot more action-oriented shows for the next season, and fewer "chick shows."[17]
  • March 9: Team Tomorrow stages a dramatic rescue of the space shuttle Discovery after it is struck by a sizable meteor. The strike knocks the shuttle off-course and ignites an oxygen tank. The entire crew survives. This event marks the point at which governments begin to consider novas for space operations and exploration.[15][18][19]


April Edit

May Edit

  • May 6: Project Utopia announces plans to terraform the Ethiopian Highlands. The project, a cooperative venture between Project Utopia, the UN and the Ethiopian government, marks the first attempt at engineering widespread geographical and environmental changes within a region.[15] The project is known alternately as Project Abyssinia[22] and Operation Eden.[23]

June Edit


August Edit


September Edit

  • September 15: A house fire claims the lives of the wife and children of Utopian Thomas Schuyler in Villa Mariposa, a Project Utopia gated community. The fire seemed to have no origin point; it was simply everywhere at once. Project Proteus was likely involved somehow.[28]
  • September 25: A terrorist organization sets off an explosion in São Paulo using primitive fusion technology. Over 30 city blocks are levelled, and hundreds are killed. Team Tomorrow Americas arrives immediately to supply aid and assist in the investigation. Despite repeated reports of nova involvement in the bombing, no one has to date been charged. It is the most expensive attack in history, causing an estimated $20 billion in damage.[15][29]


October Edit

  • US News & World Report reports that Project Utopia has teamed up with law-enforcement agencies around the world to create the World Organized Crime and Terrorism Task Force, and it's going after the Mafia, and everyone else involved in organized crime throughout the world.[30]
  • Melissa Weatherby becomes Shadow Civil Service Spokesman.[31]
  • October 7: The Triton Foundation announces the discovery of a vaccine for AIDS. The World Health Organization declares October 7 "Red Ribbon Day" and, with the help of health organizations on the national and local levels, vaccinates 90% of the world population by the end of the year.[15]
