Emissary Lost

Sat 22 Dec 2018, 16:54

I have just starting preparing the Emissary Lost campaign for my group and I have a few questions regarding the timeline that maybe you can help me with.
After reading a bit the forum and the books. I have come to understand that "Today" in the game is around CC66. The Last Voyage of the Ghazali (prequel to the campaign) takes place in CC61.
Are there 5 cycles between the prequel and the campaign? It can be explained by the time it takes to reactivate the Nazareem's Sacrifice cells but I couldn't find any clear answer in the text and I think it's important because if the players uses the same characters, what are they doing during five cycles?
If there are not 5 cycles and we are still at the end of CC61 or beginning of CC62, it is written in the Last Voyage that the Hamurabi system was being abandoned and forgotten since the incident in the Taoan system. How can it happen so fast?

Thank you in advance for your help and opinions :)

According to timeline chart at p. 249, it's 61 CC today, not 66.
