Galactic Timeline
6 Billion Years ago – Tyra Delta evolves first life forms
5 MYA – Earliest Tyrak Ancestors evolve from reptilian/insectoid life forms hunting on the forest floor
2 MYA – Tyrak Air Whales evolve on Tyra Epsilon Gas Giant
1 MYA – Tyrak Stationary Life Forms evolve on Tyra Gamma.  Tyrak Oceanic Life Forms evolve on Tyra Beta.  Tyra Alpha remains lifeless
8,000 B.C. – Most Tyrak Life Forms have evolved from single base Tyrak Genus.  Drastic physical differences begin to occur between species and subspecies of Genus
Year 1020 A.D. – First Precursor/Visitor artifacts believed to have been placed upon Tyra Worlds.  Cerebral Species evolves on Tyra Gamma
Year 2438 – Humans of the RUSN first arrive upon Tyra and establish research colony.  Domestication of Tyrak Species begins to occur
Year 2439 – Tyrak Life Forms of Tyra Delta researched upon.  Discovery of genetic similarities between species despite vast physical differences is discovered.  Hyper Evolution Theory is proposed by Liz Sarahn, Director of Biological Research division of Tyra Delta
Year 2446 – Project Tyra Sapiens begins.  Tyrak DNA and Human DNA combined in an attempt to research more upon the Hyper Evolution Theory
Year 2449, October 23rd – Tyrak Organisms on Tyra Delta discovered to have an unknown, potentially lethal, infection.  Due to seriousness of case, medical researchers immediately begin examining DNA of life forms and attempt to uncover the virus.  Potentiality of all life forms on the world being infected is severely guaranteed
Year 2449, November 16th – Maelstrom Virus is discovered and named.  Virus discovered to be the first actual biologically living virus.  Maelstrom Virus discovered to be capable of altering DNA of hosts to the point of actual physical transformation of host cells and organism as a whole.  Almost all of Tyra Delta determined to be potentially infected
Year 2450, January 1st – Tyrak Swarm is born.  All life forms on Tyra Delta wiped out by Swarm over the course of the month.  Radio contact and space travel mysteriously made offline throughout the system.
Year 2450, February 10th – Swarm becomes smart enough to have minor use of starships.  Begins infecting life forms on other Tyra Planets.  Tyra Stations destroyed and local populations infected.
Year 2450, March 1st – All of Tyra is infected by Maelstrom Virus.  Overlord organism evolves and creates a permanent Hive Mind complex using Cerebral organisms as offshoots of its will.  Tyrak Organisms begin using primitive faster than light travel, hyper-gates, to make their way across the stars.  Omega War begins
This is another timeline for the currently named "Omega Project," which is a work in progress tale inspired by many different science fiction universes including but not limited to Mass Effect, Starcraft, Halo, etc.

This timeline is pretty short, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in revealing the third faction of Omega. All that you need to know until I reveal the rest in the profile information is that they are the Tyraks, and they are going to be among the two races that are considered to be the top badasses in the galaxy...

Well, if you could actually call them a race anyway. I won't reveal anymore, because I want the details to be a surprise. You'll learn more in due time...

The Tyrak Swarm, Orghren Raiders, RUSN, and related materials are (c) by me. Omega is a Work in Progress. If anyone wants to collaberate with me to come up with a good name for it, I'd be much obliged. I hope you enjoy!

-Kerian

p.s. Before you ask...yes, there WILL be concept art on this race. They'll be the easiest for me to conceptualize. You'll find out more soon enough...

It's the name of an alien race from one of my most favorite tabletop wargames ever. Pretty much a virus acting creature, but they worked more like the Tyran(sp?) from Warhammer more than anything. When you played their army in the game, you always had the chance to re-breed dead soliders from the hive, and the squads were super cheap.

Tyranids....probably my favorite insect race, and my favorite race in Warhammer; right above the Tau, Necrons, and Grey Knights...

Necrons in my POV are really creative. I love the whole tricked by the ancient forbidden creature from a prison dimension to lose their conscious and become a living mass of machines.

I know. I liked that too. Naturally I wanted to create a similar concept in another mythos. :XD:

I really enjoy the Egyptian theme to their culture too. I guess that for as much as I wanted to get away from Egypt I can never truly get over it. They still have my vote as the proud owners of one of my favorite mythologies...

It is a great idea, hard to stay away from. Like a writer's Stinger light.

(the light...its so beautiful...I have to touch..ZAAAT!)

:nod: And I have to agree with you there. Egyptian, Norse and Greek. (Age of Mythology anyone? :XD:)
