Multiverse

This is a full timeline comprised of all major events in interstellar pop-culture. From the Last Great Time War (Doctor Who) to the destruction of the Death Star (Star Wars).

Before time / Before the Universe[]

  • The Light and the Darkness competed in what the latter called a 'garden game'. They would create numerous forms of life, but disagreed over how it should be done. The Light was in favour of infinite forms of life evolving throughout creation, while the Darkness argued that there should only be one, immortal and perpetually prosperous. The two came to blows and their 'garden' was destroyed, establishing the foundation of what would become life in the universe. The Vex and Ahamkara are among the external patterns that entered the universe after its formation. (Destiny)
  • Before time itself, ancient beings of darkness and light ruled the void between universes. Darkness incarnate, known as The Beast, was a being of temptation, sorrow, anger, destruction and the death of hope who has fought against the Disciples of the Light. The Disciples managed to imprison The Beast in the center of a planet called Krop Tor orbiting around a black hole. The Disciples rigged the planet so that if The Beast were to escape Krop Tor, the planet will loose its gravitational orbit with the black hole and fall into the event horizon. Over time and after the Big Bang, the legend of the Beast lived on in the universe after the death of the Disciples which inspired the beliefs in religious figures across the universe such as Lucifer or Satan and many others. (Doctor Who)
  • The Kreeholo seed life throughout the multiverse, using the Summoning Key to access different dimensions. (Call of Duty: Zombies)

  • A single sentient universe exists called the First Firmament. In its loneliness, it creates the first ever beings called Aspirants. However, a group of them rebel and begin calling themselves Celestials, whose war with the Aspirants causes the Firmament to shatter and create the 2nd Cosmos, a multiverse. 4 more iterations of the multiverse come and go for an unspecified amount of time before the current cosmos, the 7th, begins via Big Bang. (Marvel)
  • The spaceship Infinite was created. (Doctor Who)

Events dating back and forth through time[]

  • At an unknown point in history, an ancient race of aliens called Time Lords fought in a brutal war with each other at different points in history and even used time as a weapon in their battles with time loops and temporal paradoxes. This was the first Time War. A second war broke out a generation after the rule of Rassilon and lasted for 30,000 years. Instead of each other, the Time Lords fought against other races developing time travel such as the Charon who the Time Lords had destroyed. Later, the Deindum War started as an attempt to erase the Deindum from existence before they develop into a war-like race. As another war between the Time Lords and the Daleks began, a single Time Lord known only as the Doctor decided to destroy the Time Lord home planet Gallifrey in an attempt to eradicate the Dalek race during the Last Great Time War. After an encounter with his future selves, his decision of committing genocide was averted and he and his future selves decided to keep Gallifrey alive by having it reside in a pocket universe trapped in time. In the midst of Gallifrey's transportation into the pocket universe, the Doctor escapes by stealing a Time Lord ship called a TARDIS and deciding to live out the lives of his future selves and travel throughout time and space. (Doctor Who)
  • In the second Time War, an unnamed species created the Reality Bomb and were later eliminated by the Time Lords. (Doctor Who)

  • The time of the Silastic Armourfiends of Striterax, who build a hyper-intelligent computer called Hactar, which is later pulverized after sabotaging what the Armorfiends intended to be the ultimate weapon. It remains operative as a cloud of interstellar dust and retains the ability to subtly influence minds and matter. (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

13.7 billion years ago (the Creation of the Universe)[]

  • A big bang occurs (general scientific belief of the universe's creation), this big bang was caused by Azathoth. A giant amalgamation of limbs, eyes, and mouths floating through space who is a cosmic deity whose very existence caused the creation of the universe. Azathoth later brings three sons into existence: Nyarlathotep, the Nameless Mist, and the Darkness. As Azathoth continued creating and destroying many worlds in the universe, his sons created minions and devised a plan to put Azathoth in a sleep like state and put a halt to his chaos. They succeed and overtime, give existence to Outer Gods such as Cthulhu which have the same cosmic god-like status as Azathoth and his sons. These Outer Gods then bring life to various Great Old Ones who bring life to various alien lifeforms on other preexisting planets. (Cthulhu Mythos)
  • Within the first few milliseconds of the Universe's existence, the Nibblonians bore witness to the creation of their greatest adversaries, the Brain Spawn. (Futurama)

These Kreeholo are corrupted by it and wage civil war with their uncorrupted brethren. The corrupted are defeated and banished to the Dark Aether, where they are corrupted even further and become the Apothicons. (Call of Duty: Zombies)
  • The Primeval being known as Davoth creates the multiverse, starting with the realms of Urdak and Jekkad. Designing Jekkad to be a perfect world, Davoth later created the Maykrs to aid him in achieving immortality and sharing it with the Jekkadians. However, the Maykrs recognise and fear the Jekkadians' obsession and unrestrained ambition. Upon achieving immortality themselves, the Maykrs seal Jekkad off from the rest of the multiverse. The Maykr known as the Father took credit for Davoth's creation of existence, while Jekkad was gradually warped and twisted into the dimension known as Hell, with the Jekkadians transforming into the first Demons and Davoth becoming the first Dark Lord, determined to destroy all he had created. (DOOM)

10 billion years ago[]

  • Influenced by Hactar, the Krikkiters evolve and achieve spaceflight. For two thousand years, the galaxy undergoes the most devastating conflict ever recorded, the Krikkit Wars, resulting in over two "grillion" casualties.

When their subservient races start creating synthetic lifeforms, which turn on them and destroy them. To ensure the survival of organic life, the Leviathans create an artificial intelligence known as the Catalyst, which begins to gather genetic information from the myriad of species throughout the cosmos. The Catalyst betrays the Leviathans and uses their genetic material to create a fleet of biomechanical machines known as Reapers. At the Catalyst's command, the Reapers eradicate all sapient life in the Milky Way galaxy and retreat to the empty space between galaxies, beginning the cycle of repeating this mass extermination of galactic civilisation every 50,000 years. They also create the Citadel and Mass Relay network to improve the efficiency of their cyclical harvests, as well as a means of dictating future advancement of other species to ensure their own technological superiority. (Mass Effect)
  • The Necrontyr discover the C'tan and attempt to enlist their aid in usurping the Old Ones. Instead, the C'tan takes over the Necrontyr civilisation and transforms them into mindless machines known as Necrons to serve them. The War in Heaven breaks out between the Old Ones, Eldar and Krorks (who would later become the Orks) against the C'tan and the Necrons. Eventually, the Silent King of the Necrons regains sapience and turns the Necrons against the C'tan, shattering them into shards, and the Necrons return to their tombs and enter a state of dormancy. The extreme death tolls and overuse of psychic powers destabilises the Realm of Souls, changing it into the Warp. The first Chaos Daemons manifest and eradicate the remaining Old Ones. (Warhammer 40,000)
  • The Demons invade other dimensions and convert those they conquer into extensions of Hell, with the native creatures becoming corrupted into new types of Demon.

The Normandy leads an armada of all the races and factions united against the Reapers and forced their way to Earth through the Reapers' blockade. Using a mass relay in London, Shepherd is teleported into the Citadel and meets the Catalyst AI, which gives Shepherd three choices on what the Crucible would do. It could destroy the Reapers but also destroy every AI in the galaxy. It could reprogramme the Reapers to a new purpose, or secure peace with the Reapers by synthesing all life in the galaxy into new biomechanical forms. Whatever Shepherd's choice, the Reaper war ended here. (Mass Effect)
