Eezo Galaxy Timeline

Prehistoric Times (Unknown BCE - 1,000,000,000 BCE)

Unknown BCE

  • The Leviathans dominate the galaxy, enthralling every new sapient race they encounter and protecting them in return for tribute. The Leviathans consider themselves the galaxy's first and only apex race.

  • After observing that their subservient races create synthetic races who consistently and violently rebel, the Leviathans create an Intelligence to seek a way to permanently preserve organic life. The Intelligence constructs an army of "pawns" to gather genetic information throughout the galaxy.

  • The Intelligence attempts to betray the Leviathans, using its pawns to slaughter them for their genetic material to create Harbinger, the first Reaper. Thus begins the cyclical harvest of the galaxy's intelligent organic life by the Reapers, part of a vast experiment conducted by the Intelligence to fulfill its mandate.

  • The Intelligence builds the mass relay network to increase the efficiency of the cycles, allowing galactic civilizations to develop faster and more consistently between harvests. 

  • It is discovered much later on that the Reapers come to fail in the overall destruction of the Leviathans who ultimately find the means to subvert the intelligence and their pawns. Thus, keeping the Leviathans in full power and ever seeking a new means of preserving life which would go down through the ages. 

Pre-Prothean Times (1,000,000,000 BCE - 68,000 BCE)

1,000,000,000 BCE

  • The Leviathan of Dis, a Reaper, is killed by the Leviathans. Its corpse comes to rest on the planet Jartar and remains undisturbed for nearly one billion years.

37,000,000 BCE

  • An unknown spacefaring race fires a mass accelerator round at a Reaper near the planet Mnemosyne. The round penetrates the Reaper, disabling it, and continues moving through space, eventually striking the planet Klendagon and creating the geological feature there known as the Great Rift Valley.

298,000 BCE

  • The ancient arthenn race flourish in the Zelene system, living on the planet Helyme until being destroyed in an unknown event that wiped out all complex life on the planet. They also maintained a presence on other planets in the system including Epho, which bears the scars of an ancient orbital bombardment, and Gaelon, which may have been mined for helium-3.

125,000 BCE

  • Ancient spacefaring races called the thoi'han and inusannon fight over the planet Eingana, littering the planet with the debris of hundreds of starships. Refined element zero scattered by broken drive cores contaminates the environment, causing many native species to go extinct and those that survive to show a tendency to develop biotic powers.

Pre-Council Times (68,000 BCE - 500BCE)

68,000 BCE

  • The Protheans achieve spaceflight and discover mass effect technology from the ruins of the extinct inusannon. They go on to establish a galaxy-wide civilization linked by the mass relay network, however, they are soon discovered by the Leviathan race who see the Protheans as an elite that could serve as a new arsenal to their cause. Seeing this, they offer the Protheans the first seat of oversight across the galaxy within the Citadel. 

13,000 BCE

  • The turians of Palaven begin to develop civilization around this time.

  • The new Prothean Empire under governance of the Leviathan Superiority, take watch of the Turian race with much interest as they hold a natural ability for imperial organization and tactical expertise. 

6000 BCE

  • Seeking to escape the imminent explosion of their sun, an alien race constructs an AI-managed starship equipped with supercomputers containing a virtual world, into which some one billion of the aliens transfer their consciousnesses. The starship begins a journey throughout the galaxy which lasts for the next 8,000 years.

1900 BCE

  • Tuchanka, the krogan homeworld, enters the nuclear age. In a global conflict, weapons of mass destruction are released, triggering a nuclear winter. In the resulting devastation, krogan society devolves into a collection of warring clans.

1800 BCE

  • A supernova propels the Mu Relay, the only point of access to the remote Pangaea Expanse, out of position. Concealed somewhere in the dense nebula formed by the supernova, the relay's position is effectively lost for centuries. Later, the rachni rediscover the relay.

  • The Turians are uplifted by the Leviathan Superiority and are offered an equal seat within the council alongside the Protheans. This marks a large shift in power that the Prothean Empire would have to give to the Turians. While there is no hostility toward the new race, there is a worry that the Leviathans may be seeking to replace the Protheans down the line. 

  • Holding a fear of their eventual dismissal, the Protheans begin to assert their own power in discovering other elite races to preserve not only civilization itself, but their own legacy. 

580 BCE

  • After developing faster-than-light spacefaring capabilities based upon unattended Prothean technology, the asari begin to explore the mass relay network, and eventually discover the huge Citadel space station at a hub of many mass relays.
  • Now aware of the existence of three superior races, the Asari are extended an invitation to aid the Protheans in their continual mission to preserve civilization. The Asari take the offer and would later within the next twenty years receive a seat beneath the Protheans on the Citadel.

520 BCE

  • The Salarians discover the Citadel and open diplomatic negotiations with the Prothean Empire. In result the Salarians meet the Asari and Turians. In the next few years the Salarians are offered a seat beneath the Protheans and work in unison with the Asari as their equals.
  • The Leviathan Superiority grows wary of the new takes of assistance by the Prothean Empire and advise the Turians to be every watchful.

Council Era - Formation (500 BCE - 1 CE)

500 BCE: Founding of the Citadel Council

  • The Citadel Council is formed with the consistence of the Turians and Protheans composing the "Council of Oversight." Those to follow would be the Asari and Salarians who would find their home as the "Citadel Council," immediately under the governance of the Prothean Empire. Only the Council of Oversight would report directly to the Leviathan Superiority who leads all and governs all across the galaxy. 

  • As a gesture of openness with their new asari allies, the Salarian Union opens the records of the League of One. Under threat, the League responds by assassinating every member of the Union's inner cabinet; Special Tasks Group operatives then hunt down and eliminate the League.

  • First contact is made with the volus. Eventually, the Citadel Council commissions the volus to draw up the Unified Banking Act, which establishes a standard galactic currency known as the credit and links all galactic economies.

  • The turian Unification War occurs. The increasingly isolated and xenophobic colonies on the frontiers of turian space go to war with each other. After years of fighting, the Turian Hierarchy sweeps in and pacifies the remaining factions. Animosity between turian colonies continues for decades.

  • The Council grants the volus the honor of being the first non-Council species with an embassy at the Citadel, rather than a Council seat.

  • First contact is made with the batarians. They are granted an embassy a century later.

  • The asari discover the elcor home system and help the elcor locate and activate their nearest mass relay. "Within one elcor lifetime" they establish a regular trade route to the Citadel and are granted an embassy.

  • First contact is made with the hanar and the quarians. Both races are later granted embassies.

Council Era - War and Rebellion (1 CE - 900 CE)

1 CE: The Rachni Wars

  • The rachni, a species of highly intelligent hive-minded insects, are discovered when a Citadel expedition opens a dormant mass relay leading to their star systems. The rachni prove to be hostile and begin a war with the rest of the galaxy. Negotiation with the rachni queens is impossible because they cannot be contacted in their underground nests on the toxic rachni worlds.

  • Hoping that the Salarians and Asari would be able to deal with the situation, the Protheans are later disappointed as the Rachni spread into star systems. 

80 CE

  • The Rachni Wars continue. The salarians make first contact with and uplift the primitive krogan, manipulating them into acting as soldiers for the Citadel Council. The krogan prove able to survive the harsh environments of the rachni worlds and pursue the rachni into their nests, systematically eradicating queens and eggs.

300 CE

  • The rachni are declared extinct. In gratitude for their aid during the Rachni Wars, the Council rewards the krogan a new homeworld. Free of the harsh environment of Tuchanka, the krogan population explodes.

300 - 700 CE

  • The krogan begin to expand exponentially, colonizing many new worlds. Growing concerns about their expansion lead to the founding of the Special Tactics and Reconnaissance branch of the Citadel.

693 CE

  • Beelo Gurji, a salarian operative, is appointed the first Spectre by the Citadel Council.

700 CE: The Krogan Incident

  • Krogan warlords leverage veterans of the Rachni Wars to annex territory from other races in Citadel space. Eventually the Council demands withdrawal from the asari colony of Lusia, but the krogan refuse. A preemptive strike is made on krogan infrastructures by the Spectres. 

  • Well aware of the galactic instability that this would spark, the Turian Command takes on the responsibility of taking the Leviathans note to heart and offer the Krogan a position separate from the Citadel Council. The Krogan would soon be the first member of the "Citadel Arms and Suppression Force." Here they would be charged with controlling all external matters that the Leviathan Supremacy or Turian Command would require.

1895 CE: The Geth War

  • The geth, machines created by the quarians as a source of cheap labor, become self-aware. Fearing a geth uprising, the quarians begin dismantling them. The geth revolt against their quarian masters. In the resulting conflict--known to the geth as the Morning War--the geth systematically drive the quarians from their own worlds. The surviving quarians are reduced to living as spacefaring nomads aboard the Migrant Fleet. Contrary to expectations, the geth do not venture outside the former quarian systems into wider Citadel space, instead isolating themselves from the rest of the galaxy behind the Perseus Veil. 

  • Discovering the news of the Quarians loss, Turian Command is forced to subvert the actions of the Citadel Council which was to close the Quarian Embassy. Instead, the Turians call upon the Citadel Arms and Suppression Force to deal with the Geth. 

  • Krogan forces are dispatched into Geth controlled space.

1921 CE

  • The geth begin construction of a mega-structure designed to house and simultaneously run every geth program in existence. Completion of the mega-structure, which would allow the geth to maximize their collective processing capacity, is the long-term goal of geth civilization.

  • As the Krogan commence to retake Quarian space, they soon discover that the Geth are far more threatening than what was reported. For the years to come, the Krogan would be forced to call upon the Turians for support. To better assist in the war effort, the Quarians are allowed to join the Citadel Arms and Suppression Force. 

1961 CE

  • April 12: Yuri Gagarin aboard the Vostok 1 becomes the first human to travel in space. Humanity becomes a spacefaring race.

1969 CE

1980 CE

  • Aria T'Loak assumes control of Omega after defeating the space station's previous warlord in single combat. She mockingly bestows the title "Patriarch" on the broken krogan, and uses him as a reminder to her enemies of her power.

2000 CE

  • The drell make first contact with the hanar around this time. With their homeworld Rakhana severely depleted and no spaceflight capability, the drell were poised for a massive population crash by 2025 CE. Agreeing to help, the hanar mount a large-scale rescue operation and evacuate approximately 375,000 drell to their own homeworld, Kahje, over the following decade. The remaining 11 billion drell on Rakhana gradually perish, warring over the last reserves of food and water.

2069 CE

After the ambassadors are killed by the predatory yahg, the Council ceases all contact with the yahg and declares Parnack off-limits.

  • Seeing the potential that the Yahg may hold, the Citadel Arms and Suppression Force move to assimilate the Yahg into their ranks and at first it proved to be near impossible until a Krogan warlord named Dravx manages to wrestle one of the leading Yahg to submission. In order to maintain their dignity and ability to live free as they always have they were offered a choice: to flourish under the Citadel Arms and Suppression Force, or to be forced as slaves by the whole of the Citadel and its governing races. 

  • The Yahg are uplifted by the Krogan and given a place within the Citadel Arms and Suppression Force, however not as equals. They live to serve beneath the ranks of the Krogan Dominion. 

  • Yahg are dispatched to Geth controlled space to aid in the war. 

  • Not long after the yahg are discovered, one yahg is captured for the Shadow Broker to study. With the Broker's assistance, the yahg rapidly ascends within the Broker's organization as "Operative Kechlu". Eventually, the Broker becomes wary of "Operative Kechlu" and attempts to have him terminated, but the order is sent too late. The yahg assumes the mantle of the Shadow Broker and directs the organization for the next sixty years.

Building on the remnants of this long extinct race, humans quickly explore the science of mass effect fields, leading to the development of faster than light travel and beginning detailed exploration of the Sol system.

2149 CE

  • Following information from the translated data cache on Mars, humans discover that Charon, Pluto's moon, is actually a massive piece of dormant Prothean technology, a mass relay, encased in ice. Once activated, Jon Grissom leads the first team of explorers through the relay, which instantaneously transports them to another relay in Arcturus, 36 light-years away. The explorers discover that the mass relays are part of a vast network, making travel across the galaxy possible.

  • The Systems Alliance charter is signed by the eighteen largest nations on Earth. The Alliance soon becomes the military and exploratory spearhead of humanity.

2157 CE: The First Contact War

  • Humanity makes violent first contact with another spacefaring race: the turians. The turians observe human explorers attempting to activate a dormant mass relay, a practice forbidden by galactic law after the Rachni Wars, and attack. Over the next three months, a brief but tense conflict known by humans as the First Contact War and by turians as the Relay 314 Incident ensues.

  • The First Contact War culminates in the turian siege and occupation of Shanxi, the first human world to fall to an alien race. Admiral Kastanie Drescher leads the Second Fleet in battle against Shanxi's occupiers one month later, catching the turians by surprise and evicting them from the planet.

  • The turians prepare for a full-scale war against humanity, but this draws the attention of the Citadel Council. The Council intervenes before hostilities escalate further, revealing the existence of the greater galactic community to humanity and brokering a peace between them and the turians.

  • The events of Mass Effect: Evolution occur. While aiding the human resistance effort on turian-occupied Shanxi, mercenary Jack Harper becomes embroiled in a plot by turian general Desolas Arterius to use an ancient alien artifact, the Arca Monolith, to convert the turian race into an army of invincible "meta-turians". Harper convinces Desolas' brother Saren of the dangers of the Monolith, which is "devolving" the turians into mindless beings under the Monolith's control. To protect his people, Saren orders the destruction of the building holding the Monolith, Temple Palaven, with Desolas and the meta-turians inside. Later, having realized that humanity and the galaxy face dark times ahead, Harper founds the human-survivalist organization Cerberus, publishes its manifesto, and assumes the identity of the Illusive Man.

  • An anonymous extranet manifesto is published following the end of the First Contact War. The manifesto calls for an army, a "Cerberus", to be established to defend humanity against inevitable alien attacks. Derided as "survivalist rhetoric written by an illusive man", the manifesto is quickly forgotten by the media.

Although Johnstagg claims to be acting on behalf of the radical human political party Eternal Earth, no connection is found and Johnstagg is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Backlash from the assassination attempt jeopardizes the Systems Alliance's bid for an embassy on the Citadel.

2165 CE

  • Humanity continues to expand, founding more colonies and establishing trade alliances with many of the other species who recognize the authority of the Citadel Council. In 2165 CE, the Council makes official recognition of humanity's growing power and influence in the galactic community.

After an Alliance research station at Sidon is attacked, David Anderson searches for those responsible alongside Kahlee Sanders, and discovers an Alliance scientist, Dr. Shu Qian, was conducting illegal AI research to unlock the secrets behind a mysterious artifact discovered near the Perseus Veil. Eventually, Anderson is assigned to work with Saren Arterius to track down Dr. Qian and his batarian supporter, Edan Had'dah. However, Saren instead kills both Dr. Qian and Had'dah, blames Anderson for the mission's failure, and uses Dr. Qian's research to search for the artifact himself.
