Please also note that we are not using the B.C. or A.D acronyms because the acronym B.C. stands for Before Christ, or Before the Messiah, and A.D. stands for Anno Domini, or In the Year of Our Lord. These are statements of worship of him and as such are both unfair to and/or technically not accurate because of those tropers that do not worship him, as we are fairly well represented among Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Buddhists, and almost certainly have a Scientologist or two, among innumerable other non-Christian groups. Instead, denote with the terms BCE (Before the Common Era, which takes the place of B.C.) and CE (Common Era, taking the place of A.D.), please.

Note that Ussher gave his dates in the Julian calendar, so need conversion. The original source is [[https://archive.org/details/AnnalsOfTheWorld available on the Internet Archive]] in its entirety.

** ''Literature/DuneEncyclopedia'': The few dates that can be matched up with known events imply that 0 A.G. corresponds to either 16,200 C.E. or 16,100 C.E.; however, this ignores any changes in the year, and it is known that a "Standard Year" roughly 20 hours shorter than Earth's year has been used since before 5000 A.G.

* ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'': Deserves a lenghty explanation: By WordOfGod, the whole story takes place in the distant future, but it doesn't explain in which time period the story takes place in the Common Era calendar, since this is one of the biggest mysteries of the whole saga. The closest explanation, according with [[AllThereInTheManual the Refractions fanzine]], an Albedo-themed magazine written by both WordOfGod, his friends and fans, is that the anthropomorphic society was ''awakened'' in early or in the middle of the 21th century, most probably in 2050 C.E., which is equivalent to the Standard Calendar (SD) used in-universe as SD (-)54. The Battle of Derzon, the very first battle in the comic, happens in-universe in SD 195-05-08 (May 8th, SD 195), being possibly the Common Era equivalent as 2299 C.E. and the current plot happens in SD 201 (2305 C.E.). The sequel ''Birthright'' happens in SD 418. (2522 C.E.)

* ''Visualnovel/{{Analogue A Hate Story}}'': It is established at the very start of the game that *Hyun-ae's last log in was 221,432 days prior, the same day that everybody died. *Hyun-ae and *Mute both confirm that this was 622 years ago; however, 622 solar years is 227,185 days. 221,432 days does evenly divide into 622 periods of 356 days, which is remarkably close to the 353-355 days in a non-leap year in the traditional Chinese calendar which was also in use in Korea until 1896. Given how society on the ''Mugunghwa'' reverted to the Joseon era, and having no need to keep the year in sync with the sun, it is reasonable to conclude they would have also reverted to the Chinese calendar and not bothered with leap years. If every year was 355 days long, the interval between the mass death and the investigator's arrival would be 220,810 days, which leaves 622 days unaccounted for; any reasonable attempt to add intercalary months results in overshooting the time interval. Hence, it looks like the ''Mugunghwa'' uses a 356 day calendar of alternating 30- and 29-day months with two additional days; New Year's Day would thus be day 0 and not be part of any month, and one extra day each year is also not part of any month, possibly the last day of the year. ''Visualnovel/{{Hate Plus}}'' establishes that the first day 0 was March 9 4045, with the first day of the first month of the first year of the Neo-Joseon Era taking place on March 10.

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'': The first episode of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' shows the date in Hayate's clock as June 3, Saturday; the closest year to the series broadcast in which this occurred was 2006, thus this is equated to 0065 of the New Mid-Childan Calendar. %% The eighth episode of the same series shows the date as December 13, Tuesday, which is inconsistent with the earlier date.

** Events before 1999 are omitted since the only two sources on the Tirolian calendar give wildly different year lengths (~91 Earth days and 2066 Earth days). %% sourced from [[http://www.megascifi.com/Timeline_With_References.html this timeline]], however the correct date of the initial crash is July 1999 and so 1999 is mapped to the Tirollian years 669 to 672 Aeon Robotech (four years pass per Earth year); in addition, 1936 Aeon Lanack = 0 A.R.

"Borders of Infinity" takes place in the year '97 (of an unspecified century); given the infodump, this is presumably 2997 and all the other series dates can be extrapolated from that.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': The comic ''Star Wars Tales'' #19 has an alternate history story where Han Solo and Chewbacca crash the Millennium Falcon on Earth. The ship is found 126 years later by Franchise/IndianaJones and Short Round after Indy's [[VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis 1939 visit to Atlantis]] (so around 1940). Because of this (and Solo and Chewie aren't affiliated with the Rebel Alliance), ''ANewHope'' is assumed to take place (somewhat arbitrarily) in 1815. It is also assumed that one standard year equals one terrestrial year. [[http://crysodenkirk.com/conlangs/SWtimeline.php This converter]] can be used for matching other dating systems to BBY/ABY. %% The [[http://www.starwarsfanworks.com/timeline/ Star Wars Timeline Gold]] (as of r52) places the same crash no earlier than 4 ABY, however (based on a reference to Endor's forest) and conjectures a date of 15 ABY or 1813 CE, putting 0 ABY in 1798.
