The opening year is 2391, this game cannot obviously be played in realtime so I have reduced the length of one threshold year.
One Year on Star Trek Galactic Threshold, is the same as One Month in Real Life.
Above "Announcements" there is a reminder of what year it is
December 05 = 2391 January 06 = 2392 February 07 = 2393
Each year (month in our time) has two episodes, usually I will change the episode around the 15th of each month but it all depends on when I am online. For the first month whilst everyone is settling in I shall leave it on the 1st episode and see how things develop.
