Yet another timeline article XD. Unlike the Felney Timeline, this one focuses only on events in my stories, games etc, which take place in the main "Felney Universe". And doesn't have as many gags. As all the stories of mine are spread out over comics, games and written stories, a lot of which are perpetually "being planned", I thought this list may be useful so people can understand references to things made in the stuff that DOES get done.
Disclaimer: This is set in an alternate reality from "our own", so the dates of some events may be changed. And other events are completely fictional of course
Other disclaimer: The old Felney Timeline contains several things which contradict this one. This is the "correct" one, the other one is staying the way it is for comedy value, if I ever change it and add more gags I'll also sort the dates and events out.

Sexton Blake (the version that exists in the Felney universe) born. Note that the "Felney Universe" Sexton Blake is only for crossover purposes. The one that features in the Red, White & Blue is in his own universe, as created by Hal Meredith in 1893, and hundreds of other writers since. The Sexton Blake stories are "supposed" to be really happening anyway, but the versions that are published are edited to "cover up the secrets". Mark Hodder, who runs the Sexton Blake website, worked backwards and worked out that the "real" Blake was born in 1859.

Sarah Millman "comes out" to her parents, who chuck her out of the house. She moves to Homonia aboard one of their atomic-powered zeppelins. Homonia has become a powerhouse economy thanks to the use of slave labour to produce cheap but worthy goods for export, and also because without religion many large scientific companies have set up there.

Earth also joins the Galactic Government, an organisation of planets which agree to co-operate and aid one another, plus divide territory and resources.
Among other planets colonised by Earth in their galactic sectors is Nirisan, The people here are similar to humans but green, and they can make energy by chlorophyll. Nirisonian technology is behind Earth's, being at approximately 2030 levels in 2199, the Humans give them aid and new technology and the two planets form an alliance. Nirisan's new global army is named Forest Warriors, because there is a large amount of forest and jungle on the planet.

A long, galaxy-wide war against Starkill, an empire from another galaxy with some vast starships. FW and S.E.C.-1 play key roles in the war, as do other Galactic Government nations
S.E.C-1, who ruled earth during the war, refuse to hand power back to the democratic government, who they disband. Earth continues on a war footing, diverting most resources to military might. This makes nearby empires uneasy and many people on earth poor and starving as a result. Rebellions break out but aren't successful
The rebellion against S.E.C-1 has grown very slowly, they have been mostly ignoring it as their soldiers can meet any threat. However the rebels are beginning to win new victories using old-fashioned commando tactics which Earth Empire soldiers cannot combat. But an archaeological dig finds some old cryogenic storage facilities, and in one of them is Steve Gunn! They un-freeze him and get him to help train a group of elite soldiers, however he defects as S.E.C-1 remind him of Stealth Force. [The Gun 3]
