This page details the years 2000-2049 according to the timeline presented in the Spaceflight Chronology.

Note: The SFC was published in 1980, so events after that date may not correspond to real-life history.

reference stardate 0/0306.15 
The First Romulan-Klingon War ends. Due to the heavy losses sustained, the Romulan Star Empire pulled back slightly and abandoned two outposts as a result.
