2024 - Year of the Bell Riots
2064/2065 - Zephram Cochrane invents the first human warp engine, initiating First Contact
So what happens in between? Presumably after the Bell Riots there was some kind of social revolution wherein the US fixed "the social problems it had been struggling with for the past hundred years". Except between the Bell Riots and First Contact must have been World War Three, and at some point either before or after First Contact were the Eugenics Wars.
It's very confusing. >.< There must be an official history somewhere. Anybody?
