[glow=blue]THE TRON TIMELINE[/glow]

on Monday, September, 22, 2008 1:21 AM
Welcome to the COMPLETELY UNOFFICIAL TRON TIMELINE's more official than official thread.
In my first Tron-Sector.com post ever, I asked this community, What's the only thing you can't find anywhere on the Net regarding TRON but, officially and unofficially, STAR WARS, THE MATRIX and even TRANSFORMERS or ROBOTECH has?
Go. Before you read anything else, do a Google search on "Tron Timeline". Browse through the results. Now search for "Star Wars timeline" or "The Matrix timeline" or "Robotech timeline" or whatever you like... Browse through the results.
Sad but true. TRON fans doesn't even have an "unofficial" one. Not here and not at Tron Wiki. Until now. After 25 five years of an almost "selfish passion" (I haven't met an avid TRON fan in Mexico City yet) and after playing TRON 2.0, I came up with the idea of making a worthy contribution to the TRON community... My fellow programs, be proud, for here and now you have your very own Tron Timeline...

Get your Completely Unofficial Tron Timeline PDA now!!! @ http://trontimeline.fortunecity.com/

I want to say that I dedicate this 'Tron Timeline PDA flash movie' to Steven Lisberger... Thank you Mr. Lisberger for such a labour of love and a testimony of hard work and determination that has had a big impact on me. Feel free to point out any major timeline errors.
Finally, let this thread serve one purpose... Improve the CUTT PDA's 'fun factor' with everybody's feedback on what should be included or left out. Thanx. Enjoy.

- Flynn gets digitized by the MCP when trying to access the mainframe. He succeds in retrieving and printing the file needed as evidence.

Dec.
- Flynn's reinstated as an employer of ENCOM and gets promoted as Senior Executive V.P.

Several questions:

How do we know that Dillinger stole Flynn's programs on Sept. 22th, 1978?

How sure are we with the year 1981? I know that's when Tron was filmed, but for all we know the movie could be taking place in '82.

How do we know it was Dec. when Flynn was rehired?order abortion pill http://unclejohnsprojects.com/template/default.aspx?morning-after-pill-price where to buy abortion pill

Pretty sure due to several references... the calendar in the office; none of the coin-operated video-games seen at FLYNN'S (Berzerk, Battlezone, Asteroids Deluxe, Atari Basketball, Galaxy Wars, Intruder, Sprint, Super Bug, M-79 Ambush, etc.) belong to later than 1981; a license plate Flynn keeps reads 'FX 81 04' which corresponds with TRON's final draft script date: April, 1981; and Tron 2.0 states so too.

How do we know that Dillinger stole Flynn's programs on Sept. 22th, 1978?
The computer printout Flynn gets at the end of the movie clearly states this. (ANNEXED 9/22 BY E. DILLINGER)

How do we know it was Dec. when Flynn was rehired?
I guess I'd've changed this one. No direct reference of this in the movie apart from the fact that it would be cool for Flynn to get even with Dillinger in the exact same period of time, that is, three months later. Does not belong to TRON's canon.order abortion pill abortion pill buy online where to buy abortion pill

Updated the CUTUC to version 1.1.0 with my latest findings on the video games Flynn coded.
The five names of the referred video games can be seen in a sign outside FLYNN'S. Read HERE. The previously 'unknown' names have been updated at the beginning of this thread too.

Minor update to the CUTUC to version 1.1.1
Mainly indicating (and making a little more clear) that Mr. Dillinger got fired, not by Kevin Flynn directly, but by ENCOM's Board of Directors some time after Flynn got hired again.

SOURCE: VRAM (you know this is a 'completely unofficial Tron chronology', right?)

Until the next relevant CUTUC update... Sometime next year fellow programs... Let Xmas lighten up your circuitry...

Hopefully TR2N will take all that into consideration, but didn't Lisberger say something about TRON 2.0 being a different cannon or something?

THE TRON TIMELINE

on Thursday, March, 26, 2009 10:39 PM
Updated the CUTUC to v.1.1.5
Greetings again fellow programs!
It seems I'm late for those neat AICN.com story details! This is great news however, for I believe that such details mostly demonstrates that Disney decided not 'retconning' the story told in TRON 2.0 video game (mainly due to the fact that "the story begins in 1989" and because Flynn left ENCOM in 1988 [according to the TRON 2.0 videogame]; except where Alan "takes over Flynn's company", supposedly, ENCOM. If the latter is true, then it should be inferred that Flynn 'bought' ENCOM at some point after leaving and that Alan 'inherited' ENCOM due to Flynn's 'dissapearance', for Gibbs Jr. was the one that became Senior Executive V.P. and remained as such still in 2002 [again, according to the TRON 2.0 videogame]).

So based on this new info, I'm updating this unofficial chronology. As you'll see above, I'll try adapting any tidbit of info regarding the new storyline within the current continuity and because such info still remain somewhat 'general' in nature...where to buy abortion pill abortion types buy abortion pill online

Aah! Nothing like a cool, juicy update like this... The recent HOME OF TRON and FLYNN LIVES "viral marketing" sites have some very specific info regarding some aspects of the original movie (such as 6/3/81 being the date when Kevin Flynn first opened his arcade) and other details of the story that followed...

Already added above for your convenience...

THE TRON TIMELINE

on Tuesday, January, 26, 2010 2:22 PM
Updated the CUTUC to v.1.5.5
In preparing for what will sooner than later be a major update to the CUTUC, I decided making a revision to 2009's last update and found out a major mistake instead!!!

There's no way Flynn and Lora finished up their relationship BEFORE the date of the opening of FLYNN'S arcade (June 3rd, 1981 according to HomeOfTron.com), simply because, in the movie, Lora tells Alan something along the lines of "it's been a while since the last time I was here".

This has been corrected above already... together with other minor details and even some "grammatical" particulars.

It's cool seeing the timeline integrated like this.

In regards to the comic. One of the reasons Eric and I wrote the comic as we did, was so that the timeline would be relatively unaffected. We obviously didn't create any of the characters seen in the film or game, and we didn't want to make any real alterations to them. Subsequently, the entire story in the comics transpires in the blink of an eye (in real world time) and doesn't really involve any of the previously seen characters.

The original story we pitched to Disney (this was before the game was announced) was a prequel. We weren't going to touch the real world stuff, but we mapped out the events that lead to the MCP taking control and Tron becoming both a well known hero and a prisoner.

Well thanks! Allow me to say that coming from the likes of you Mr. Walker, this is by far the best compliment I've received regarding this my 'unofficial' Tron time line...

You know, in one of the earlier versions of this timeline I added what I consider is one of the cooler tidbits of info in the whole Tron 'expanded universe' if you will, that being Jet moving in to the loft in FLYNN'S arcade... but then, as you say, it was revealed all of that happened inside the digital world...

So please, by all means, feel free to point out if I misinterpreted this or any other details I may be missing in the time line when it comes to TRON:GITM and I'll update it asap.
