Although first on Earth during the Silurian, their astronomers goofed and predicted a large object would hit the earth, so they decided to go into hibernation underground. Of course, they also didn't listen to their Geologist/Sedimentolgists/Stratigraphers, resulting when they did wake up, they found themselves several miles beneath the Earth's surface in the Holocene. Kicking themselves at this latest goof-up, they decided to go back to sleep for another 1000 years for punishment.
