An alternate Space: 1999 timeline

he following Space: 1999 timeline is my update of the timeline found in Starlog magazine's Moonbase Alpha Technical Manual published in 1977. This is a tentative timeline, and thus I plan to make further revisions of the timeline in the future. Also, if you want to post your version of an updated timeline, please do so.
