dark angel chronology

Postby rantanplan » Tue 8. Jul 2008, 21:46

Hello all!

i know there is some web site where we can find it, but in my favourites, i can't find one anymore... .

So i would ask you, if you should list all dates and events related to DA, what it will be ?

I find some, like the escape in february 2009, the BCD the 17 may, our day of the pulse, the 1st june, and maybe we can add the logan's birthday the 11 november... . (i don't know the date that max choose for her birthday)... .

i don't find another events which could be noticed here... . And no another dates too... .

So, what do you think about that ? Maybe some another facts that i don't think have their importance ? tell me all ;).

bye!

Well, barcode day isn't actually part of the DA chronology. It's something that's based on when the last ep aired, and not an event in the DA story. The DA events don't intertwine with the dates they were first aired on (appart from the halloween episode). I know this because they aired one episode a week, and yet on the second last episode of season one a year had passed since the first episode.
What I know is that there was a war in South America, and that Mole was supposedly involved in finding Saddam (funny, since the show ended like one or two years before the second war in Iraq, where Saddam actually was found by US forces).

Are you trying to make a timeline? Do us all a favour, and make sure that the dates are correct. If you have the DA DVD's, watch them and listen for dates.

i know that, of course, but i think it's a event suffisantly important for be mentionned.. .
The think is, if i take only the BCD, the evasion, and the pulse, it's a little light... . So i had birthday, and somethings like that... .
The only think i know about the one of max is she tell "i choose yesterday for be free of that for one year". But i don't know the exact day.. .. Like for the evasion : she drink on the space needle for this special birthday, but i don't know the date... .

The DA events don't intertwine with the dates they were first aired on (appart from the halloween episode). I know this because they aired one episode a week, and yet on the second last episode of season one a year had passed since the first episode.

i absolutely not understand this part lol.

What I know is that there was a war in South America, and that Mole was supposedly involved in finding Saddam (funny, since the show ended like one or two years before the second war in Iraq, where Saddam actually was found by US forces).


you had a great imagination! lol i've even thought to that before, but it's a good idea! :D.
(just imagine soldier's heads really in front of mole :D).

Are you trying to make a timeline?


Err.... . something like that. I just search original idea for advertise for the network ;).

Do us all a favour, and make sure that the dates are correct. If you have the DA DVD's, watch them and listen for dates.


it's that i try, finding different informations on internet, but of course, it's not sure at 100%, so i'll verify allthings i'm not sure... .
For the day of the pulse, for example, now, it's certain ;).

For the bcd, i think it's sure too... . since all this years... . But i'll search information on internet, for finding what date they give to the last episod.. . .On wikipedia, for example, it' the 3st may... .

For logan's birthday, i don't remember heard the date in the show, but absolutely all website give the same, with the explanation of why scenarist choose this day (end of the world war), so i think it's sure too... .

bye!

Well, I'm not sure if you're asking us to help you generate a timeline or asking what events we'd use if we were making our own, but here's kinds how mine would go:

--Feb. 2009: Jack's murder triggers an escape attempt
--June 9, 2009 12:05pm: Terrorists denotate an electromagneic pulse that turns the US into a third world country overnight
--2019: Max first crosses paths with Logan, learns 11 of her siblings escaped as well & joins the Informant Net
--2020: Max & three siblings attempt to destroy Manticore & Max is recaptured
--2020 (six months later): Max escapes & helps broadcast the location of Manticore's new base then returns to free all the soldiers at the base
--Oct. 2020: Joshua gets to experience life above ground without negative consequences
--2021: Transgenics & transhumans set up shop in Terminal City & rescue their commrades out from under the noses of cops & Feds
--May 17th, 2002: FOX ends the second season of Dark Angel promising a third season & then cuts it, replacing it with Firefly (which only lasted for one season)
--May 17th, 2003: DA fans rally for the first Barcode Day

It might behard to figure out exact dates for various ther events because the show isn't too specific about those things.

yes, it's the problem... .
But some fans, probably when they watch some paper or computer screen during the show, find some precision... . Or maybe there is some "official" scenario with dates that not appear in the show.. .. (Or maybe they invent all this lol).

Exacts dates are a problem, it's right.

I'm not sure if you're asking us to help you generate a timeline or asking what events we'd use if we were making our own,


Yes, it's that. The result is the same : if you help me for a timeline, or if you try to do one, it's the same things you'll thinking to notice. :).

And thanks for taking time to do a list for me.
If somebody else has some ideas, or know precise information about some dates, i'm interessed :).

bye!

The dates are fairly correct. Only Error is that the pulse was on june 1st, not june 9th.

Er, i didn't know where ask that, and i think a ew post is not necessary, so... .

look at this : http://www.eyes-only-online.net/index.p ... sodeguide2

The last episod is noticed like it was broadcast the 3th may. But of course, our barecodeday is the 17. So, why we do that on the 17 and not the 3 ?
Maybe it's the 17 that we learn there will be no season 3 ? I had always thinking we choose the date for the last diffusion... . But Saahms can't do this error, so i think maybe i'm not really knowing the real reason of the date to the BCD.

bye!

it's not the date of the last diffusion, it's the date when they tell us the show is canceled, ok.
Thanks for that.

And saahms, if you think to a date for me... . Or at least something which is happened at a precise month... . ;).

Do a Dark Angel chronology is not that easy! :confused: I only noticed few dates and they weren't even mentioned, I had to check small details!^^

here's some other dates:
25 February 2020 : Penny/Tinga disappears (written on the milk box ep119)
21 October 2020: Death of Rachel Berrisford (written on the gravestone ep211)

serenity said: Oct. 2020: Joshua gets to experience life above ground without negative consequences
I guess we can say it was the 31st October because it's Halloween, no?

And rantanplan, Logan's birthday is 11 November (Logan said it in ep104)
Also in this episode Max chooses her birthday yesterday, but it doesn't tell us what date it is. The only clue is that it must be a bit before Logan's birthday, because she offers him a grape fruit as an early present...

I'll let you know if I found other dates! :wink:

Dark Angel series timeline & background informations (Edited to add some information I got from kimiM. A big THANK YOU to her!)

Created by the events in the series and the informations provided by the official books to the series:
Dark Angel: Before the Dawn (2002), Dark Angel: Skin Game (2003) & Dark Angel: After the Dark (2003) written by Max Allan Collins
Dark Angel: The Eyes Only Dossier (2003) written by D.A. Stern
I highly recommend every fan of Dark Angel to read the books! I consider them as secondary series canon since they are based on the ideas the producers had for season 3, which we sadly didn’t get.
