Unnatural Selection

While Unnatural Selection is known to take place within the same universe as AsteroidQuest, the exact year in which it takes place is still unknown. Based on what (potentially unreliable) information we have been able to find, the year is likely at least 82AW.[ref] Further evidence from thread 10 suggests suggests an (hopefully) upper bound in 135AW.[ref][ref]

Thread 15 officially gives the date of April 16th, 131AW for the start of cycle 3119. As of thread 17, the latest documented date in this year is May 22nd.

Thread 17 officially gives the month of February, 135AW for the AsteroidQuest intermission. [TODO: Discussion with Lago is that Feb might be too early in the year for this date to work. Possible retcon pending.]
