Mobile Suit Gundam: High Frontier

Life In The Universal Century

Universal Century Master Timeline

Since the Gundam world is a forward projection of our own, actual historical events relevant to the more commonly given canonical ones are included to provide a sense of continuity and historical perspective. The “Gundam century” is thus incorporated in several centuries worth of actual chronology.

In the two decades that have passed since the original Gundam series was produced, many of the early entries have been removed as real-life events have caught up with fictional ones. They have been preserved here for their genuine historical value and are indicated in red.

Getting Started

The start date for the Universal Century (UC) calendar used here is based on dateline “Monday, 14 January 0080” that appeared in the final episode of Gundam 0080. By this reckoning, the Universal Century begins in 2081 AD, following 36 years of construction begun in 2045 AD. UC dates may thus be converted to AD by adding 2080 and AD dates converted to UC by subtracting 2080.

Traditional Asian calendar dates may be derived by adding 2698 to AD dates or 4778 to UC dates. Thus, 2080 AD is the Year of the Rat 4778 (AD + 2698) and UC 0001 is the Year of the Ox 4779 (UC + 4778). If your Web browser has JavaScript support enabled, you can view the associated astrological signs for the traditional Asian calendar in a pop-up Traditional Asian to Universal Century Calendar Conversion Chart.

Making the Grade

Like many anime shows, Mobile Suit Gundam uses the World War II Japanese Imperial Army (Taikoku Rikugun) and Navy (Taikoku Kaigun) ranking system, which doesn’t correspond to any modern system. There are, for example, only seven enlisted grades, not the nine with which most modern viewers are familiar. The situation is further complicated by the fact that the Japanese system uses the same terms for both Army and Navy officer ranks. Some translators opt to use Army ranks, others Navy ranks and still others an uneasy mix of the two. This has resulted in a number of mistranslations.

The rank of “Captain” is especially problematic. In the Army, a captain is an O-3, a company grade officer equivalent to a Navy lieutenant. In the Navy, a captain is an O-6, a field grade officer equivalent to an Army colonel. Furthermore, “Captain” is also an honorific title given to the senior officer (“Skipper”) of a ship, whether civilian or military, regardless of rank. This confusion doesn’t exist in Japanese, where an O-3 is a Tai’i and an O-6 is a Taishō in both services, a military skipper is a Kanchō and a civilian skipper is a Senchō.

To eliminate ambiguity, standard military pay grade—O-1 to O-10 for commissioned officer, W-1 to W-4 for warrant officer (WO) and E-1 to E-7 for non-commissioned officer (NCO) and enlisted—is given here in lieu of any specific military service rank. If your Web browser has JavaScript support enabled, you can view the 22 military pay grades and their corresponding Japanese and English language Army and Navy ranks in a handy pop-up Military Pay Grade to Army & Navy Rank Conversion Chart.

24 thoughts on “Universal Century Master Timeline”

  1. im learning the timeline of the gundam universe its take place in the universal century from 0079-0088 these battles of the mobile suit gundam universe especially gundam 0083 stardust memory but my question is on gundam 0083 its has only 13 episodes no 14-or 15 episodes of the anime series my ideas is to rebooted more new gundams series like after war gundam x victory gundam turn a gundam double zeta gundam to revive the universal century to bring back the new gundams home to adult swim toonami its time to sign a petition for the gundams that was cancel now its time to revive the gundams thank you

    1. It wasn’t “lost” so much as it was garbled in translation in the move from standalone pure HTML pages to WordPress blog. WordPress initially choked on a table this size and it took quite awhile to find and fix the problem. In any case, you’re quite welcome. Enjoy!

  2. finally managed to find this timeline.

    now, with G-Reco and G-Tekketsu (Iron Blooded Orphan) is rumored to be related with UC, where will you put it inside this timeline? Tomino-san mention once in interview that RC is somewhere between UC and CC.

    Also,im asking permission to translate your timeline to my language, Bahasa Malaysia, sir.

  3. The key word here is “rumored”—as of yet, there’s nothing official linking them to UC.

    Turn-A Gundam has been cited by Director Tomino and other sources as unifying the stories from the various Gundam series that preceded it into one. Throughout the show, mobile suits resembling those from the eras depicted in previous Gundam shows and indicated to be preserved by Nano machines for thousands of years, including as those of the Universal Century, are excavated by the show’s various factions. In Episode 43, this plotline comes to a culmination as the history of the Correct Century timeline is shown in a collection of clips known as the Dark History (黒歴史, Kuro Rekishi), which is revealed to be events that took place in different Gundam series prior to Turn-A, thus making those events part of the CC timeline’s history and vice versa.

    Tomino has said that G-Reco’s Regild Century begins 500 years after Turn-A. Following the exhaustion of natural resources during the UC/CC, the Earth was abandoned. By RC 1041, Earth has been repopulated to half its previous. So Tomino defines RC as beginning at “the end of Universal Century” (UC 2345), but there’s nothing like the Dark History or identifiable UC relics to back that up.

    Taking Tomino at his word, RC 0001 = UC 2846, which would make RC 1041 = UC 3887, but even that is only tentative.

    I see no way to place G-Tekketsu. There’s no “Calamity War” that destroys the Moon in G-Reco, so there’s no identifiable starting point for the Post Disaster Century. G-Tekketsu is set in PD 323, but that date can’t be linked until we learn how long after RC 1041 the Calamity War begins.

    Without an official connection to one or more of the recognized segments of the UC timeline (UC or CC), there’s no “hook” on which to hang the subsequent timelines.

    Feel free to translate this timeline into Bahasa Malaysia or Bahasa Indonesia or whatever Google Translate calls “Malay” or anything you please. This is a reference work, intended for all for whom it may hold some interest.

  4. My understanding is that Tomino stated G-Reco occurs around five-hundred years after Turn A, not that the Regild Century began five-hundred years after Turn A. In other words:

    RC 0001 = ~CC 1831 (unknown epoch)
    RC 0514 = ~CC 2345 (Turn A)
    RC 1014 = ~CC 2845 (G-Reco)

    It seems pretty random to place the Regild Century’s epoch in such a random time, but perhaps it’s similar to how the anno Domini label wasn’t used till eight centuries after the birth of Christ, and we just never learned what happened in the CC 1800s that was so important to people in RC 1014. I always assumed RC 0001 was the start of the Ag-Tech system and the projects to rejuvenate the Earth and build the Venus Globe, but that was never explicitly stated. Just as I always assumed that CC 0001 was the year after the Moonlight Butterfly brought an end to the Dark History, even though that was never explicitly stated either.

    You also seem to be unnecessarily conflating the Universal Century with the Correct Century, as if UC 2345 is CC 2345. Apparently a “Universal Century Gundam Officials Encyclopedia” contains an in-universe text, ‘2001 Correct Century, a Bibliographical Study of the “Dark History”‘, where a Moonrace researcher in CC 2001 finds a book published in UC 0100, and estimates the book to have been printed three-thousand years prior. If true:

    CC 0001 = ~UC 1100
    CC 2001 = ~UC 3100
    CC 2345 = ~UC 3445

    But I doubt this. In-universe, the Moonrace researcher could be wrong. Out-of-universe, this piece of apocrypha could’ve been written by someone out-of-tune with the main Turn A creative staff. In the anime, Episode 44, Lily Borjarno says: “consider the fact that this ‘Universal Century’ began a little over ten thousand years ago”. We don’t know if she’s guessing, or if she’s basing this on something they saw in the Winter Palace’s records which we didn’t. But if true:

    CC 0001 = ~UC 7656
    CC 2345 = ~UC 10000

    In the second Turn A compilation film, they changed this to “a little over five thousand years ago”. So someone must’ve thought Lily’s figure was important!

    CC 0001 = ~UC2656
    CC 2345 = ~UC5000

    In Episode 45, Gym Ghingham refers to the House of Ghingham as “those of us who’ve governed the military for twenty-five thousand years”. In Episode 44, Diana (or Kihel?) claims that the “Terrans, without ever using such technology, can also claim to have lived a two thousand year history”. These statements suggest that the CC 0001 epoch does at least roughly correspond to the start of humanity’s recovery after the use of the Moonlight Butterfly.

    The general picture here brings a lot of problems. G-Reco seems focused on the Universal Century specifically, rather than the Dark History and Correct Century in general, as if the Regild Century immediately followed the Universal Century without anything but a period of collapse in between. (The MSs in the museum in the first episode, the rusted MSs in the cave in the last episode, compared to the preserved MSs underneath layers of soil in Turn A.) I’ve seen it suggested that the term “Universal Century” came to mean the Dark History in general by the time of Turn A, and some translations of Tomino’s statements imply that the Universal Century was much less ancient to the Correct Century than those of the Correct Century believed, with their limited grasp of history.

    I’m inclined to believe that Tomino basically came up with his chronology on the spot, to surprise or even mess with the fans. As if he were on board with everyone else placing the RC between the UC and CC, then though, “could it work like that…? Yes, I think it could, I’ll tell everyone they’ve got the timeline backwards.” Even if he always intended for G-Reco to follow Turn A, it’s hard as a fan to decide which to go with if everyone else on the staff assumed he meant it to go between the Universal Century and Turn A.

    1. Can we not edit our replies on WordPress? I made a few typos. Twenty-five thousand instead of twenty-five hundred, Turn A instead of G-Reco in the last sentence of the second-to-last paragraph, though instead of thought in the last paragraph.

  5. I wondering about connection between 0099 : moon crisis (manga) with 0096 unicorn, are they related? Or the manga just altered universe?

    1. Mobile Suit Gundam in U.C. 0099: Moon Crisis was originally serialized in the magazine MS SAGA (1993–1994), released in a compilation volume by Media Works and later reissued as two volumes by Dengeki Comics (Nov 1997—Jan 1998).

      It takes place in an alternate version of the Universal Century in the same timeline as Mobile Suit Gundam: Outer Gundam (Jan 1988—Jan 1992), set in U.C. 0079, and Mobile Suit Gundam REON (1996), set in U.C. 0107, all written and illustrated by Masahumi Matsuura.

      All three works are considered to be outside of the official U.C. timeline and thus not canonical.

  6. “06:31—Side 2 (L4) Bunch 13 security chief Rosenberg receives a coded message that the Zeon are mobilizing, but the line is cut before he can hear the code signifying that an attack has been initiated.”

    Never heard about it, I’m really curious where it came from?

    1. Unlucky “Bunch 13” was originally the designation for the space colony to be gassed with GG, a feat credited to the MS squad lead by Johnny Ridden and including Shin Matsunaga, Roy Greenwood and Thomas Kurtz.

      Their exploits are chronicled in Gundam MSV Ace Pilot Series of Biographies (1983), Entertainment Bible No. 1: MS Encyclopedia Part 1, One Year War Edition (Feb 1989) & Gundam MSV-R:The Return of Johnny Ridden (26 Apr 2010—).

      Since then, Bunch 13 has been conflated with Bunch 8 Island Iffish and thus “lost to history” insofar as the official continuity is concerned, but it’s still on record in various chronicles of the Aces of the One Year War so it’s part of my U.C. Master Timeline.

      I don’t honestly the origin of the data on Bunch 13, but the the fact that it included a “tick-tock” of timestamps for the events and not the a date suggests that it came from Mobile Suit Gundam Official Encyclopedia GUNDAM OFFICIALS (Kodansha, Mar 2001, ISBN 978-4-06330-110-6).

      In reviewing the U.C. Master Timeline in response to your query, I discovered that WordPress had failed to separate all of the timestamps properly, so I’ve updated the table to correct this.

  7. tank you very much for your answer, it was the first time for me to found info about it, and I couldn’t find confirmation about it anywhere .

    I can see that there are some little discrepancy, from source to source, on the times of the attack too, since the old ultimate mark’s timeli report this:

    07:20 The Principality of Zeon declares war against the Earth Federation. The Principality carries out surprise attacks on the Federation’s patrol fleets, and launches indiscriminate assaults on Sides 1, 2, and 4.
    * Source: Entertainment Bible 39.

    08:50 The news that war has broken out is relayed throughout the Federation fleet.
    * Source: Entertainment Bible 39.

    Nothing that could not be put up together with the rest of the information.

    I’m sorry if i bother you but i would like to do a rich timeline of OYW like this in Italian, and you are so far one of the best on the net! Don’t mind if we quotes you?

    1. There was considerable revision of the One Year War during the “M.S. Era” refresh that gave us 0080 “War in the Pocket” & 0083 “Stardust Memory” (what I call the “Nazification of “Zeon”), when Sunrise took the obvious parallels with WWII and ran with it.

      The problem with this is that it was one-sided, turning Zeon entirely into Nazi while ignoring the Empire of Japan. In the original 1979 series, the action on Earth parallels the war in the Atlantic and European Theater of Operations while the action in space parallels the war in the Pacific and the “island hopping” and battles of Midway, Layte, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, etc. One could even argue that the “Operation British” colony drop was the Pearl Harbor of the 1YW.

      In any case, this timeline started primarily with Mark Simmons’ and grew from there as I acquired and learned how to read the source material like Entertainment Bible 39, so bringing this discrepancy to my attention is helpful. I may even be able to reconcile the differences and improve things all around.

      Feel free to quote me so long as you provide appropriate attribution, including any Japanese sources that I’ve cited as informing the content of the U.C. Timeline.

  8. Your timeline of the one year war doesn’t include the 08th MS team, which starts in October 0079.

    1. All of the events that occur in the 08th MS Team story arc are annotated in the Timeline on the dates the occur in chronological order. Thus, “Shirō Amada born in Side 2 (L4)” appears in the events of U.C. 0056, the birth of Aina Sahalin (along with those of Chap Adel, Audrey April, Oksana Boginskaya, Yayoi Ikaruga, Yuki Nakasato, Braun Wooder and Garma Zabi) in U.C. 0059, their fateful meeting on U.C. 0079.10.06 (06 Oct 0079) and so.

      The Universal Century Master Timeline is subdivided into eras. The first era “Now & Ten, Here & There” (1771–2045) covers relevant history from the discovery to the Lagrange Points to the declaration of the Universal Century proper in U.C. 0001, when the “Universal Century” era begins. The actions of the 08th MS Team, however notable, do not mark a distinct era of the Universal Century but rather are part and parcel of “The One Year War” era, which begins on New Year’s Day 0079 (0079.01.01). The events of Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory are part of t”The Delaz Turmoil” era, which begins in March 0083 0083.03).

      All of eras except the first begin with decision to go to war in space. The events of the 08th MS Team story arc in last quarter of the One Year War and don’t mark the beginning of a new era as do subsequent conflicts. This also true for all of the “side stories” that take place in the One Year War era and the subsequent eras, all named for when the conflict began chronologically.

      I apologize for any confusion, but the Timeline is first and foremost a chronology of events that together comprise the various eras into which the overall history has been subdivided in retrospect.

    1. “Side stories” aren’t part of the canonical continuity unless animated.

      “Blue Destiny” is especially problematic because it’s essentially a manga adaptation of the 1996 Sega Saturn video game that introduced the EXAM System that appears nowhere else & popularized the MS-08TX Efreet as alternative to the by-then overused MS-07 Gouf for bad-ass Zeon aces.

      Moon-Moon has some historical context but only because it’s the Bernal sphere “Island 1” colony nominally in Side 1 used as “construction shack” to build the first O’Neill “Island 3” colony, Side 1 in L5.

      It’s name indicates that Moon-Moon (the Moon’s Moon) isn’t even really part of Side 1, but rather a reference to the fact that it orbits the Moon in the same way that Moon orbits the Earth, allowing it be used to as a waystation for regolith & other materials to orbit around the Moon to L5, just as spacecraft have to achieve a Low Earth Orbit before initiating a Trans-Lunar Orbit into a Low Lunar Orbit before landing. This was only needed to assemble large masses that could be ferried to L5 to build Side 1, after which L5 would become the hub for building Side 2 in L4. L5 & L4 would the work jointly to build Side 3 in L2, which would join them in building Side 4 in L5, which would assist in building Side 5 in L3, then Side 6 in L4.

      Side 7 in L3 was in Lunar orbit diametrically opposite the Moon & the convenient cluster of Lagrange points L1, L2, L4 & L5 around it, hence the need to move Juno to L3 to become Luna II & provide both a construction site & the materiel from which to construct. The low gravity of Luna II eliminated the need for an orbital waystation & its gravity would become progressively lower as materiel was transferred from it to Side 7.

      The fact that Moon-Moon orbited the Moon was either forgotten or never fully understood by other who wrote about after the fact. This parallels what happened with the assignments of the Sides to their respective Lagrange points between Mobile Suit Gundam & Mobile Suit Z Gundam.

      When faced with the after-the-fact realization that the Sides had clearly changed the positions between UC 0079 & UC 0087, the writers were forced to invent the May 0082 “Colony Reclamation Project” to explain a continuity gaffe on the part of the producers between the two series.

  9. This is super cool. I just want to thank you for putting so much work into this. I’m curious how you got so much highly detailed info.

    Out of curiosity, how do you decide to factor in things of dubious or questionable canonicity? Any plans to add info for more obscure stuff like Tyrant Sword of Neofalia?

    1. This timeline wouldn’t have been possible without Mobile Suit Gundam Official Encyclopedia-GUNDAM OFFICIALS (2001, Kodansha, ISBN 4063301109 / 978-4063301106) & MS Era 0099 Mobile Suit GUNDAM 0001-0080 (1999, Media Works, ISBN 4840212333 /‎ 978-4840212335), both of which were published to mark 20th Anniversary of Gundam twenty years ago.

      I haven’t been very diligent in updating the timeline since the 35th Anniversary five years ago unless someone challenges or otherwise calls my attention to something requiring my personal review to resolve. This happens more often with the physics, engineering or orbital dynamics I’ve documented with the Gundam canon, which is subject to change without notice whenever the series get retconned.

      Generally, I take things as “canon” if they’ve been animated & included in video games & fit into the U.C. chronology. I leave it to the anime & manga fans to decide what’s canon. My concern is reconciling Gundam with the O’Neill “High Frontier” concepts that inspired it & concentrating on what can actually work based on the science.

      For example, if you eliminate Minovsky particles, the compact fusion reactor would theoretically be possible using muons to catalyze the classic 18.35 MeV Helium-3 + Deuterium -> Helium-4 + proton reaction.

      The more fictional & less scientific the science fiction becomes, the less interested in it I become.

      1. Thanks for responding! I’ll have to look into some of those books you mentioned, especially if they’ve been translated.

        So then I guess it’s unlikely you’ll be updating this with manga only stuff like the aforementioned Tyrant Sword of Neofalia or the newer 0083:Rebellion, huh? It’s so hard to find any meaningful info on some of that stuff, so that makes.

        It’ll be interesting to see if you add stuff from the new Gundam Battle Operation: Code Fairy game and manga. Either way, thanks again for maintaining this awesome resource!

  10. The idea of the Regild Century happening *after* Turn A just doesn’t work in my eyes. Obviously, what Tomino/Sunrise/Bandai say takes precedence, but if it takes place after Turn A, why aren’t any events from Turn A referenced? No mention of the Moonlight Butterfly reducing all the technology to sand? No mention of the Lunar Monarchy? I always figured G-Reco was the literal “end of the Universal Century” that ultimately led to the war where the Turn A and Turn X were initially built and everything got trashed. I don’t think the things we see from the other Gundam timelines were to be taken as literal parts of the Dark History, just representations of wars that occurred in that period.

    In my opinion, the only things that could make G-Reco take place after Turn A are the North American continent being called Ameria, and the Jahanams; the latter could theoretically be an descendent of the Borjarnons.

    Unrelated, but I like how all the serious Sentinel stuff happens at the same time as the Shangri-La gang’s hijinks. Also, is there an official location for Amuro’s home in the anime? In Origin it seems to be in the San Diego area, but it’s so ambiguous in the anime.

    1. Feel free to adapt my Timeline to your liking to place the RC events where you think they should go. I’d be interested in seeing the result and, if it makes more sense than my Timeline, may update it accordingly when time permits.

      Where his mother Camaria’s house taken over by Zeon troops or the refugee camp nearby where Amuro and Cameria reunite is indeed somewhere in California, but I’ve never been able pin down the exact location. Wherever it is, it’s in the middle of nowhere and sparsely populated.

      That said, just having residency on the Earth means you’re an elite or you’d have been transported to a space colony well before the One Year War and thus an involuntary Spacenoid.

      The White Base is forced down in northwest Arizona near the Grand Canyon and follows the Colorado River across the American southwest, turning south near Las Vegas, Nevada, forming the Arizona–Nevada border in Lake Mead and the Arizona–California borders a few miles below Davis Dam between Laughlin, Nevada and Needles, California before entering Mexico in the Colorado Desert.

      Most of its waters are diverted into the Imperial Valley of Southern California in Imperial and Riverside counties, with an urban area centered on the city of El Centro. It’s bordered by the Colorado River to the east and, in part, the Salton Sea to the west. Farther west lies the San Diego and Imperial County border. To the north is the Coachella Valley region of Riverside County, which together with Imperial Valley form the Salton Trough, or the Cahuilla Basin, also the county line of Imperial and Riverside counties, and to the south the international boundary with Mexico.

      So, yeah, somewhere east of San Diego, but nowhere the Pacific Coast.

      Bets wishes to you and yours from me and mine in the New Year!

      White Base proceeds northwest to Seattle, Washington where Garma dies and hides in the ruins of the Kingdome. Garma and Icelina had their tryst at a ball celebrating Zeon victory in Los Angeles, midway between Needles and Seattle. A direct Great Circle flight from Needles to Seattle would cover 1,560 km or 970 miles bearing 337° 30′ or due NNW and pass just west of Las Vegas, Nevada and well east of Los Angeles and San Francisco, California and Portland, Oregon.

      The territories over which it flew are agricultural and rural, crossing the Cascade Mountains midway between Portland and Seattle, on a route that keeps it well away from populated areas as it flies over northwest Nevada, southeast Oregon and central to northwest Washington.

      1. I’ve always appreciated how much clearer Origin was with geography, and how the White Base takes the far more logical route through Mexico to get to Jaburo. If I remember correctly, the “Garma’s Fate” battle takes place entirely in Los Angeles in Origin. I’m due for a re-read.

        East of San Diego is exactly how I saw his mother’s house, too. Given that the signage in the area is in both English and Spanish, it’s likely close to the border with Mexico. Back in the day, on sites like Newtype Asylum and whatnot (god I miss those days), I heard Japan and British Columbia as possible locations.
