(Redirected to Event One article)

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Event One or Big Bang refers to the creation of the present Universe itself and the beginning of all ages.

At least one universe existed before this one (NA: The Pit, MA: Millennial Rites, SJA: Secrets of the Stars). The Great Old Ones and The Beast existed and were able to survive the big bang (though the Great Old Ones gained advanced powers in the process) (PDA: The Quantum Archangel, DW: The Satan Pit). The energy entity known as the Ancient Lights continued some sort of existence after Event One, but was unable to enter the present universe (SJA: Secrets of the Stars).

During the first period, there was "empty void" (DW: Terminus). Matter then exploded outward in the form of hydrogen (DW: Castrovalva).

The Doctor speculated that the massive ship Terminus had time jumped at some point, discharged its fuel and instigated the Big Bang before time jumping a second time back from the distant past. (DW: Terminus)

These two descriptions may be of the same event; hydrogen is an excellent fuel for fusion, and may be the fuel dumped by Terminus. If Terminus did cause Event One, then the entire universe is a predestination paradox.

The Leptonic Era would follow. (DW: Time and the Rani)

Possibly Apocryphal Accounts

Contradicting this, a Time Lord from the High Council stated to the Doctor that the Vipod Mor, headed back in time to the creation of a galaxy, would overshoot and travel back to before the universe, thus causing the Big Bang as a "dense monoblock of matter.". (BBCR: Slipback)

These two reasons may both have been true, with the fuel of Terminus colliding with the Vipod Mor.

References to the Big Bang

The Time Lord said this to the Doctor on Skaro during an indefinite time period during the end of the Thousand Year War, which happened at, the very latest, before the year 2157, by which time the Daleks already had interstellar spaceflight.
  • According to the Doctor, the creation of the universe occured 13,500,020,012 years before a specific date in the early 22nd century, when he decided to celebrate. (NA: Transit)
We do not know if he counted the date in Earth or Gallifreyan years.

The Big Bang.

The Big Bang is a scientific colloquialism for the cosmological origin of the physical universe. By the 24th century, it is theorized that this event took place 15 billion years ago. (ST roleplay module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook)

The event was witnessed by the crew of USS Voyager when Q and Quinn dragged the ship back from 2372. (VOY episode: "Death Wish")

The Big Bang occurred shortly before the formations of the Great Barrier and galactic barrier. (TNG novel: Q-Zone; TOS movie: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier; TOS episode: "Where No Man Has Gone Before", TAS episode: "The Magicks of Megas-Tu")

The Gravity's End proto-universe phenomenon showed that events similar to the Big Bang were either taking place or had taken place in parallel universes as well. Located near the Omega Maelstrom, Gravity's End was the only proto-universe phenomenon known to the United Federation of Planets. The phenomenon was known for its extremely high energy output, which exceeded that of 100 G-type stars. (TOS video game: Judgment Rites)

The Big Bang is a cosmological model of the universe that has become well supported by several independent observations. After Edwin Hubble discovered that galactic distances were generally proportional to their redshifts in 1929, this observation was taken to indicate that the universe is expanding. If the universe is seen to be expanding today, then it must have been smaller, denser, and hotter in the past. This idea has been considered in detail all the way back to extreme densities and temperatures, and the resulting conclusions have been found to conform very closely to what is observed.

Interestingly, the term 'Big Bang' was first coined by Fred Hoyle in a derisory statement seeking to belittle the credibility of the theory that he did not believe to be true.[1] However, the discovery of the cosmic microwave background in 1964 was taken as almost undeniable support for the Big Bang.

History

Pre-Crisis

Krona was an Oan scientist obsessed with observing the creation of the universe, despite an Oan legend that said discovering that secret would cause a great calamity. Krona created a machine that allowed him to see into the moment of creation. He saw an enormous hand holding what appears to be a spiral galaxy.

Somehow, his experiment disrupted the process of creation, with terrible consequences -- it caused the creation of not a single universe, but the generation of an infinite number of universes -- The Multiverse.

The Hand at the Beginning of the Multiverse

The Multiverse co-existed with an Antimatter Universe. The Anti-Monitor caused a wave of antimatter to sweep across the infinite universes in an effort to gain absolute power and remake existence to his liking. He was opposed by his opposite number, The Monitor.

The Monitor's plans did not completely work against the Anti-Monitor, ultimately costing the Monitor his life. Five universes remained. The heroes, at the Spectre's urging, pooled their resources and traveled back to the Dawn of Time where they confronted the Anti-Monitor. The villains, meanwhile (1,000,000,000 years later), traveled to Oa to try to stop Krona from peering back in time and creating the Multiverse (and the Antimatter Universe the Anti-Monitor came from).

The Anti-Monitor revealed to the assembled heroes that he lured them to him to absorb their life forces. He explained:

Only here, before creation can the future be changed! When Krona taps the cosmic forces, opening the door between matter and antimatter ... it shall be my hand he sees! My hand which shall destroy the positive matter multiverse for now and forever! My hand which shall make the antimatter universe supreme! ... The Multiverse will no longer exist! [2]
The Spectre vs the Anti-Monitor

However, the Spectre, aided by Earths' mightiest sorcerors, managed to (apparently) defeat him.

Post-Crisis

As Krona peered back through the cosmic veil, the Big Bang began:

In the beginning there were many. A Multiversal infinitude ... so cold and so dark for so long ... that even the burning light was imperceptible ... but then the light grew, and the Multiverse shuddered .. and the darkness screamed as much in pain as in relief. For in that instant a Universe was born. A Universe with mighty worlds orbiting burning suns. A Universe reborn at the Dawn of Time. What had been many became one.[3]

As explained later by Harbinger, in this reality, there only ever was one Earth with one history.[4]

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

"Everything that exists, and will ever exist, was spawned from the primordial plasma of time's beginning."
Jedi Master Ood Bnar

The Big Bang was the event that created the universe, an indeterminate amount of time prior to the formation of the galaxy. The galaxy's formation predates the formation of the Cularin system[1] and the Yavin system,[2] which would place the formation of the galaxy, and thus the Big Bang, some time prior to 7.5 billion years before the Battle of Yavin.

The Shawken Device was designed to cause a chain reaction that would destroy all star systems in the existing universe, with the purpose of eventually triggering a new Big Bang to begin the universe again. While this exact outcome is questionable, the effects produced by this superweapon could have still been disastrous had it ever been given a chance to destroy the planet Shawken, where it was located.[3]

Behind the scenes

It is probable that the timespan between the Big Bang and the formation of the Star Wars galaxy was less than one billion years, as our own Milky Way galaxy is nearly as old as the universe itself.

The age of our universe, according to current scientific consensus, is approximately 13.7 billion years. Many fan-made timelines, such as Star Wars Timeline Gold, use references to Earth in Star Wars canon to determine the time difference between the events in the films and the present day. Timelines which assume only a few centuries or millennia often list 13,700,000,000 BBY as the date of the Big Bang.

However, since neither Earth nor the Milky Way galaxy is mentioned in canonical Star Wars materials, such calculations are purely speculative.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Big Bang is an early Autobot character designed for Return of Convoy.
Dammit, Monstuh! I ain't givin' you no tree-fitty!

Big Bang was an Autobot originally designed to act as the new Supreme Commander during the post Zone storyline which eventually turned into Return of Convoy. Big Bang would have been the successor to Dai Atlas and lead Iron Baron and Star Garry against the forces of Dark Nova, or possibly Unicron (Unicron was shown as the line's villain in early production sketches).

Big Bang was later discarded in favor of the "Return of Convoy" angle, which resurrected Optimus Prime as Star Convoy.

Big Bang has never appeared in any official, finalized Transformer media, although what scant information there is on him can be found in the Japanese Transformers Generations guidebook.
