What year does Starbound take place?

  1. These creatures may be from another planet, and have never heard of Earth.

    Or the alternate timeline theory. They could have come before humans, too.

    No information? :p

    But how would we know what year if various planets have different calendar systems and have their own years? The year could be 3432AD one place, but GF135 somewhere else. Maybe even AC6002!

    When thinking about years in such a setting that involves an expansive universe of civilizations, asking 'what year' is difficult, and could easily depend on where you are at the time, or even what calendar system you go by.

    Other than that, it's likely just some alternate fictional dimension whose year doesn't mean much.

    Well humanity is still shown to have a military like culture style and they still use projectile weapons. However they have FTL travel so I will say it takes place in the 2500s
