Baen Books collected the Technic History in seven volumes. With a slight reallocation of contents, the seven volumes could comprise:
Vols I-III, from exploration of the Solar System to the Terran War on Avalon;
Vols IV-VI, from the Starkad affair to the Magnusson Revolt;
Vol VI, from new alliances formed during the Long Night to the exploration of the Cloud Universe.
Nicholas van Rijn and David Falkayn are born during Vol I and die during Vol III, although their births and deaths remain off-stage.
The Terran Empire is founded at the midpoint of Vol III and falls between Vols VI and VII.
Dominic Flandry is born between Vols III and IV and dies between Vols VI and VII.
No single character lives through the much longer period covered by Vol VII.
Vols I-III constitute a future history and Vol VII alone also constitutes a future history whereas Vols IV-VI do not because they are set during a single life time. The entire series is a major future history.
