Cool

Quite a good list, though missing some classics.

Would love to see a more expanded one.

Haha, they must not've been a fan of Galactica 1980. No mention of the battlestar Galactica's arrival at Earth during that time.

Clearly the author(s) was/were new series fan(s). In fact, in the entry that was made for 150,000 years into Earth's past, they mention that Hera becomes the "Mitochondrial Eve". (Suggesting that they were also fans of the videogame "Parasite Eve".)

Nice find.

Indeed it is! Just imagine if they'd taken a bunch of other events from the series mentioned in the timeline and put them all in...that would be a MASSIVE timeline!

BTW, I'm glad they threw in a Max Headroom reference. Wish they would release that TV show on DVD!

That's actually a surprise that they haven't.

Cool

It was announced back in February this year that the complete Max Headroom series would be released in August by Shout Factory...if that's still true, I'm not sure.

Cool! I had not heard that. Looks like yet another thing to spend some money on!
