Perhaps that's part of the fun, though, Pigasus - it's another layer of meaning for 'those who know' whereas those who don't can enjoy the story without being encumbered by it.
It's a puzzle that can be decyphered by those who wish to do so!

I started that timeline just so I could keep track of it all, and it keeps on growing. For example, though this one includes the Prador/Human war, it doesn't include the specific events of Prador Moon, or events in a short story I've just completed, or events in Polity Agent or Hilldiggers. Ah well, must do some updating.
