c. 54,000 BCE Dugee, the purity monitor for the Mycon, dies of a "general misfunction". Little is known about the Mycon before that time. (Though the Umgah later speculate that the Mycon did not evolve naturally, and were engineered.)
c. 27,000—23,000 BCE The Ur-Quan overcome their territorial nature and become a spacefaring race. An association of spacefaring races called the Sentient Milieu discover them and recruit them as a member. The Ur-Quan travel the galaxy meeting other races, including the Slylandro.

The Ur-Quan experience a schism called the Doctrinal Conflict, which the Kzer-Za win by using a Precursor battleship called the Sa-Matra.
