In the Futurama episode "The Late Philip J Fry" they travel forward in time to the heat-death of the universe, and even further until a new Big Bang spontaneously occurs and they loop back to the year they started from. Twice. According to Wikipedia, the estimated time frame for quantum fluctuations to create a new universe is 10^10^56, so we can estimate ...

I'm not sure how specific of a date you're looking for, but "Utopia", an episode of the third season of the revived Doctor Who, takes place in the year 100 trillion: Doctor: We're accelerating into the future. The year one billion. Five billion. Five trillion. Fifty trillion? What? The year one hundred trillion? That's impossible. Doctor Who Series ...

The best timeline I have seen which includes dates and times for the Fellowship of the Ring can be found at The Lord of the Rings Fanatics network. There are four parts to their timeline and each lists the paths of the major participants in the fellowship and events related to the characters. The fine graphic created at xkcd, is more of a story-path tracker ...

Just remember these lines at the end of "All Good Things" (from the transcript here): CRUSHER: You know, I was thinking about what the Captain told us about the future. About how we all changed and drifted apart. Why would he want to tell us what's to come? LAFORGE: Sure goes against everything we've heard about not polluting the time line, ...

All dates in the HP world trace back to the Death Day party of Nearly Headless Nick in The Chamber of Secrets. It was stated that his it was his 500th Death Day. The cake reads: Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington died 31st October, 1492 So, it stands to reason that during the second year, Harry Potter was 12, and that it was the year 1992. All dates can be ...

The movie never says specifically, but it may have been mentioned in the animated series. Marty declines to race against Needles, which did change the future. Marty and Jennifer's future did change after this event, but this was for the better. Marty's involvement in the race had very negative consequences to his future life. He breaks his arm, and gives up ...

Wow, this is a tough question. Having a real hard time digging up any concrete answers. Here's what I have so far, movie-by-movie. Unless otherwise specified, dates are from Wookieepedia and shown in Years:Months:Days ArS (After ReSynchronization): The Phantom Menace - The Invasion of Naboo took place completely during the year 32 BBY (before the Battle of ...

That's " '—All You Zombies—' " by Robert A. Heinlein. 1960, available to read here The main character (a time traveler) winds up being his own father and mother, and says, just before the story ends, "I know where I came from -- but where did all you zombies come from?" (He is born and raised female, is seduced, has a baby, discovers that he also has male ...

The second Death Star's construction started during the Battle of Yavin, when Emperor Palpatine ordered for the construction of new superlasers, to which the resources for its construction, including Hyperspace tugs and treadships, from its origin near Sullust to Endor via the Silvestri Trace, an obscure hyperspace route. Ironically, he issued this order ...

The events in All Good Things were the result of Q playing around with reality (or possibly just Picard) by moving things backwards, forwards, and sideways through time. The presence of Q and his usual shenanigans means that all bets are off as to what is real, what isn't real, what will be real, and what might become real. The future events in All Good ...

It's presumably at some point between the specials The Waters of Mars and The End of Time, because at the end of The Waters of Mars he's standing in a snowy street on Earth and suddenly sees a vision of Ood Sigma standing there, then at the beginning of The End of Time the TARDIS materializes on the Ood homeworld, and looking at this transcript, here was the ...

I'm surprised nobody mentioned The Last Question by Isaac Asimov. This short story traces humanity's evolution until it exists outside of space or time, after the heat death of the universe (10 trillion years in the future). You can read it here.

I'm really surprised no one has listed the second Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy book, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, the titular Restaurant sits in a shield bubble and rocks back and forth through time so that successive dinners can be held where the spectacle of the End of the Universe can be witnessed.

I think this timeline helps establish what happened: River Song shoots the Doctor at the fixed point in time, after being abducted by Madame Kovarian and the Silence and put into the astronaut's suit. This is post-Melody incarnation, so she has met and knows the Doctor already. However the two of them do not meet in a perfect forward-backward sequence. ...

Remember that when time travel causes changes in Back to the Future, there's a "ripple" that adjusts the timeline, and it even affects people and objects that have been displaced in time - for example, Marty slowly vanishing in the first film as his history becomes rewritten, or the gravestone in Back to the Future part III showing the various individuals ...

There are a couple of hints about it in both TOS and Voyager, and brick bats in Enterprise. In TOS, the timeline has been muddled with by the Enterprise herself twice... once, in the Season 1 episode Tomorrow is Yesterday, and another in Season 2's Assignment: Earth. In both cases, they are interfering with the very 1960's they were filming in, showing it ...

Warhammer 40,000 takes place in the 41st millenium (who'd have guessed, right?). And it uses quite an elaborate dating and time tracking scheme, so there are a lot of exact dates involved. For example, the history of the Siege of Vraks involves mentions of years 40,804 (exact date 366804.M41 in Imperial syntax), 40,809 or 40,813.

The latest people referenced that match our reality were George W. Bush and Tony Blair, shown in the ENT episode Future Tense: This was part of a historical database that included Bush's 2003 State of the Union Address.

Films I'm not sure you could strictly describe the creation of a music track as an historical event, but nuKirk playing the 1994 song Sabotage (by the Beastie Boys) on his Nokia phone would have to be a strong contender. You can see the London Eye and 30 St Mary Axe (otherwise known as "the Gherkin") in the distant London ...

The original Death Star, as the first of its type, would have experienced numerous delays because designs never quite work out as their designers envision. Plus, the first time through, there is invariably a certain amount of development work on specialized production processes and tools as well as significant extra testing. evaluation, and training. Once ...

Whether he will is answerable only by waiting for the next movie. Whether he can is another question (and the one I'll attempt to answer). The events of the J.J. Abrams movie created a new timeline, so many of the events we've seen in the original timeline will no longer occur. But we've also seen plenty of events that were set in motion by things that ...

My name is Brian, and I'm the community manager for Artemis. I'd like to clarify: Artemis was started about three years ago and the Author, Thom Robertson, is not affiliated with any Star Trek clubs or fandom. While Artemis clearly has its roots in classic Star Trek, it was quickly adopted by a small (but growing!) fanbase, who suggested changes, changes ...

It's probable the Daleks did not know what that fixed point in time would be -- perhaps she would turn out to be a fixed point in time in the future they were bringing about. They can't see the future, but apparently had some notion that it would be "wrong" (in the sense that Captain Jack is "wrong") to kill her. It isn't stated what exactly the criteria ...

If I remember correctly, they did not see Buckbeak executed, in the book or in the movie. They were watching from the top of a hill, so they couldn't see clearly; what they actually saw was the executioner angrily splitting a pumpkin in two after finding Buckbeak missing. Of course, they didn't know that at the time. EDIT: I just rewatched the scene on my ...

I believe that any references to the passing of time in the book are merely meant to show that the peacefulness and isolation of Lórien made them forget their task and their urgency (not to mention ease the hurt of losing Gandalf). "They remained some days in Lothlórien, so far as they could tell or remember." (Book II, Chapter 7) And as they are ...

TL;DR: Rick seems to be out for about 4-5 weeks in both the TV show and the comic. Dave Erickson, the showrunner for Fear the Walking Dead, got a word-of-god answer on this from series creator Robert Kirkman. In his interview with Tech Insider, Erickson said: "Robert has said for him, the coma, Rick was probably out four to five weeks," he continued. "...

There isn't any real answer to this question, as it implies that the Time Lock somehow exists within what humans conceive of as "linear time". Once it had been put in place, the Time Lock "always existed" and "will always exist". The events of the war were removed from the flow of time itself. That's one of the problems with using human language to discuss ...
