(January 2014 - ?) The return of the Miranda mission; fallout from Legend of Galactic Girls; the Great Age of Exploration.

The Interlude and the Great Age of Exploration overlap in their timelines - the separation is by outlook, not by calendar.

In which the Fenspace Convention catches its collective breath and mops up after the Boskone War... only to butt heads with the 'Danelaw

The Great Age of Exploration

In which many things are explored - the Solar System, interstellar space, the limits of technology and handwavium, and above all the varying realms of the human condition.

The Convention was weary - physically weary from fighting the Boskone War, emotionally weary from being treated as criminals by so much of the 'Danelaw, and mentally weary from realizing that life in space still involved dealing with all the little annoyances of daily life. They were ready for a change.

And they got one, with the news that the Miranda had discovered evidence of extra-Solar intelligence.

The Convention started to spread out in earnest. The Artemis Foundation sent a manned mission to Barnard's Star and found native life there. A group of Vernor Vinge Fen visited Lalande 21185, and was amazed to discover Gatewood, a planet that could (just) support human life. And everybody knew about the wonders discovered by the Soviet Air Force's mission to Delta Pavonis.

Thus did the second half of the century's second decade come to be known as The Great Age of Exploration, with Fen of all nationalities and factions working together to find their own wonders.

Certainly, not everyone was willing to leave the Sol system - some people had put down roots on Luna, Mars, Ceres, Ganymede, or Mimas, or above Venus, and they weren't about to pick up and leave with those worlds still only partially explored. And somebody had to stay behind and pay the bills.

But there were enough people who were willing to see what was out there to make this half-decade one of the most vibrant in Fenspace's history.
