6000 AD was too long. I couldn't think of any valid reasons for why it had been so long before any progress was made in rebuilding the Federation. The adjustment is as follows:
TLA is founded in 4042 A.D, this remains as it was.
TLA first contacts the Volcyon Conglomerate in 4250 A.D, instead of 6021 A.D.
That is more in line with a good 200~ years of rebuilding basic infrastructure across much of the Wasteworlds, and the long-standing campaign in the Coron system without being such a ridiculous amount of time.
