The calendar uses the formation of the Empire in 01 BNE/01 NE as year zero.

The following is a timeline of important events in the history of the Cyrannus Galaxy. The Cyrannian Standard Calendar is the standard measurement of time in Cyrannus, based on the solar cycle of the galactic capital Orbispira. A year is roughly the same length as a year on Earth, although there are only six months—Ianuaria, Martex, Iunius, Novemex, Dekemurios and Neochios.

The calendar uses the formation of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus at the conclusion of the Great Cyrannus War as year zero to catalogue galactic history, with events following the Empire's creation marked as New Era (NE), and events beforehand as Before New Era (BNE).
