Blake's 7 - a timeline
wall1885
I wasnt really sure which forum to post this in-apologies if there is a better home for it.
I was just wondering if anyone had (if possible) worked out a timeline to show where all the stories fit in?

I was thinking that the starting point would be the original 52 TV episodes- but then where would you place the BF novels, BF audios, BBC radio audios & fan made ones (if they could be placed at all)

If anyone has figured this out already please let me know-

Obviously B7Media audios have their own timeline & some of BF's wont have an exact placement

Also post Gauda Prime stories such as Lucifer, Afterlife & The Logic of Empire wont all fit - as fans we'll all have to decide our own personal choice to how they fit in (if they do)


Please lets not start a discussion about what is or is not canon- we'll never get all of us to agree all of it

I think TarrantOnTV had done quite a lot of work on this... he posted it on the old board. Not sure if he's still about to post a copy.

I've actually found a few timelines on other sites-I might go super OCD on this & try and place B7 Magazine comic strips, Poster Mag Text Stories plus stories from the 3 Annuals

I've done a chronological "Liberator log" style timeline (like Neil Faulkner's back in the Horizon N/Ls), which spreads the action of the 52 episodes over 7 (subjective) years, based on dialogue in the episodes and known distances. I still have the Excel file for anyone mad enough to want to delve into it...
 
wall1885
yes please Frankymole

You know that's one thing about Blakes 7, at least it has a definite timeline. Dr Who on the other hand can get away with anything by using the old time travel cop out. lol.

Good work so far.Cool

Having been through the transcript for "Volcano" very recently, they are still searching for Blake at that point. So I think "Incentive" (which tells why they give up looking for Blake) must come after "Volcano" rather than before it.

Agreed.

I think The Turing Test comes before Project Avalon rather than after it.

Thanks for all of your input _ I've amended the timeline to reflect your advice....... still more to do Grin


with a lot of BF's releases there are few points of reference to TV episodes so placement is definitely subjective (but we're not as mental as some fandoms, so we can discuss & accept others point of views without getting all stroppy about it)

So do we all (mostly) agree that most Lib Chronicles could be considered as consecutive stories in the timeline, also with the full cast dramas (unless future ones tell us differently???), would you place them as consecutive stories?

Personally, yes I would place them consecutively unless stated otherwise.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Not necessarily - I'm fairly sure that The Turing Test came before Project Avalon (and kind of leads into it), whereas The Hard Road is explicitly stated as happening after. Due to LC7's own internal continuity, Disorder - which comes before The Hard Road - must therefore also come after Project Avalon.

It says in the Behind-the-Scenes page of The Liberator Chronicles Box Set 1; "These stories are set between Project Avalon and Breakdown."

On that, my submitted story for the proposed fan Anthology was a follow on continuation after the events of Project Avalon. Thinking about it now, it could lead into the Liberator Chronicles set as an adventure to tie them together with a bit of editing.

well that's my take on the B7 timeline, I agree it's never going to be perfect, but I only did it as a bit of fun- please feel free to add your thoughts on any story placement & your reasons for any suggestions- Thank You

Thanks for that wall1885, I was only wondering yesterday whether any LCs occur in a different order to the spine numbers!

ps You have LC2.1 on the list twice Grin
