- US and Russian scientists meet and plan to make the first long-lasting craft to enter space, later to be known as the International Space Station. They know it would be rather hard with the rockets both countries use, so plan to make a hybrid, able to carry a large amount of cargo yet still run as efficiently, if not better, than normal orbital rockets.
- As before the humans made space, now they must reach the moon. Mercury II is launched in early January and manages to orbit the moon for twelve days, then returns to Earth.
- Alexei III dies after being assassinated by an extremist. The rebel is executed, and his son, Egor I, takes the throne. Beginning his rule, he opens oil and agricultural relations with Belarus.
- Attempting to beat the US in the Space Race, Viktor IV races toward the moon in July, and also orbits the moon. After attempting to land on the moon, they eventually ran low on fuel and raced home.
- Pakistan and Sudan join the UCN in October.
- In December, Indonesia and Australia join the UCN.
- The US rocket, Apollo I, manages to reach the moon, but descends too fast, crashing into the rocky lunar object and killing all three aboard.
- Russia again makes it's attempt to land on the moon, but a saboteur sabotages the fuel tanks for the rocket. It is found only moments before the countdown began, saving five Russian lives.
- US scientists develop the Space Shuttle, able to carry an immense load and yet still have more powerful and burn less fuel than the normal Mercury and Apollo rockets. They share the design with Russian scientists, and both countries begin constructing several of the craft.
- Manchuria and Venezuela join the UCN in August.
- Apollo II is launched in November. It successfully lands on the moon. Buzz Aldrin is the first man to set foot on the moon. They stay for several more hours, taking photographs and sample from the moon's surface, and return to Earth. Now, Russia and the US will hold off for the competition for several more years, until technology advances far enough to reach a distant planet.
- Venezuela begins it's reign under President Hugo Chavez at age twenty. He begins a strong, massive and a slightly economically depressing campaign against terrorism and crime in the South American country.
- The Australian cruiser HMAS Sydney, having survived World War II (unlike it's real-life counterpart) comes under fire from unidentified aerial dive bombers off the coast of Guam. One artillery gun is destroyed, another two damaged, and 17 crewmembers are killed. UCN officials groan at another mystery attack.
- Hugo Chavez's campaign against terrorism ends, with over 1,053 arrested, and, unfortunately, several dozen killed in firefights. Chavez is hailed a hero and Venezuela's economy boosts from the free sea-trading.
- HMAS Sydney and it's escorts, the two destroyers Sunset and Return go on an apparent normal patrol. As expected, another aerial group arrives to try to destroy the Sydney, but the aerial group is killed. One pilot is captured and is identified as a Venezuelan bomber pilot. UCN officials are puzzled at the large distance between the two countries.
- Hugo Chavez denies claims at attempted sinking of the HMAS Sydney. In retaliation, Australia and New Zealand begin furious arguments with the South American nation.
- A mysterious illness pops up in a Danish town. It spreads and the first death arrives on April 3rd.
- United States deploys troops to Denmark and the uninfected population evacuates. Infected populace is quarantined and separated, as scientists and doctors study and attempt to heal the civilians.
- US carrier John F. Kennedy is raided by a group of unknown terrorists. Many, if not all security guards are killed, if not thrown overboard. The crew is taken captive, but beforehand, a bridge crew manages to send a distress signal.
- 6 of the 87 infected die in Denmark as doctors furiously attempt to save the rest.
- Australia and New Zealand leave the UCN and begin to mobilize it's military. During the preparations, two light Australian destroyers are damaged from a hidden submarine- Australia is furious and persecutes Venezuela. United States president Lyndon Johnson begins to worry and, knowing peace talks will do little to an upcoming conflict, dispatches a division of 12,000 US troops, while deploying a platoon of Navy SEALS and a fleet of destroyers, cruisers, and two battleships Wisconsin and Missouri, to Venezuelan shores. They are ordered to open fire on either Venezuelan defenders or Australian attackers if needed.
- Four British destroyers catch sight of the hijacked John F. Kennedy forty-seven miles off the coast of Ponta Delaga in the Azores, and report it to President Johnson. Johnson gives William Claytor Jr in command of three teams of Navy SEALS and a battle group of carriers, cruisers and destroyers.
- The world is shocked as Australian strategic bombers detonate four nuclear weapons on Valencia, Caracas, Cumana and Maturin. US fleet commander responds by attacking three Australian destroyers escorting a transport fleet containing an invasion force- nearly half of the fleet is decimated, and the remains of the fleet limp back to Australian waters.
- Venezuela counters Australia's attempted invasion with bombing yet another Australian fleet off the coast of Samoa- accompanied by American carriers, Australian forces retreat again, thinking better than to fight against overwhelming odds.
- President Johnson announced that by the end of the decade Australia would cease it's offensive military activities permanently and the world would finally be safe from war and terror.
- The John F. Kennedy is retrieved once again, having been taken over by Australian commandos playing as pirates. The carrier is sent to port, repaired, refit and refueled and sent toward Venezuela to assist them against the Australian invasion.
- American scientists announce breakthrough- the Mars Rover is launched on March 11 and reaches Mars- images are sent back to Earth and the world is happy with their success.
- Russia follows shortly after the US and lands a more primitive rover on May 4.
- Australian and New Zealand forces launch their final offensive of the war- and invade Peru. The country is in dire need of support and US forces, already spread dangerously thin throughout the south-eastern Pacific and northern Venezuelan waters, tell a portion of the Venezuelan Army and Air Corps to assist the Peruvians. There is a ten-mile long front, but most of the heaviest fighting takes place at Nazca, Peru.
