  • None


  • The 3D Holo-Simulation suite is a direct 'borrow' from Star Trek: The Next Generation's Holodeck. The Doctor even uses the same commands!
  • Theta in this story is clearly none other than the First Doctor and the name 'Theta' is referred to as a nickname.


  • Artron energy; primary power source of a TARDIS. In the early days of exploring the space/time vortex, a sphere of pure artron energy was discovered by the Gallifreyian Magnus. Upon draining the sphere it became apparent that the sphere was sentient with the ability to communicate. Theta intervened and the sphere was set free.

Publisher's description


When Lieutenant Tuvok begins to suffer from bouts of repressed memory - which can cause brain damage in a Vulcan - the solution is a mind meld between Tuvok and Captain Kathryn Janeway. It's a remedy that takes them back to Tuvok's first assignment aboard the U.S.S. Excelsior commanded by Captain Hikaru Sulu. The Klingon moon Praxis has just exploded, and the key memory seems to be the death of a crew member during a skirmish with the Klingons.

(Redirected to Flashbacks article)

From Lostpedia

Flashback redirects here. For the magazine issue, see Flashback (magazine)

In literature, film, television and other media, a flashback (also called analepsis) is an interjected scene that takes the narrative back in time from the current point the story has reached. Flashbacks are often used to recount events that happened prior to the story’s primary sequence of events or to fill in crucial backstory. In the opposite direction, a flashforward (or prolepsis) reveals events that will occur in the future. The technique is used to create suspense in a story, or develop a character. In literature, internal analepsis is a flashback to an earlier point in the narrative; external analepsis is a flashback to before the narrative started.

Flashbacks are a major part of how Lost tells its story and one of the major components that makes it such a unique and distinctive television program compared to other TV shows. Each main character has been featured in one or multiple flashbacks that portray what happened in their life before being stranded on the Island.


Main format

In general, each episode's flashbacks follow these norms:

General exceptions

  • The episode "The Other 48 Days" was the first episode to take place entirely in flashback - it follows the Tailies from the crash until they reach Sayid and Shannon, and had screen titles indicating "Day X".
  • The flashbacks in "Maternity Leave" are signaled differently. Instead of a close-up of the character and the "whoosh" sound, Claire's flashbacks begin with sudden flashes of mental images as her memory is jogged followed by a thwanging sound. Additionally, her flashbacks are from her time on the Island, specifically during her kidnapping.
  • The "flashbacks" in "Three Minutes", while narratively similar, are not true flashbacks. They do not contain the "whoosh" sound, they are labeled with captions (like "Thirteen days earlier"), and they occur on the Island.
  • Charlotte, Libby and Walt are the only main characters who did not get their own flashback episodes, although they had minor point-of-view (POV) flashbacks and have appeared in other people's flashbacks.
  • Rose and Bernard were the first guest stars to get a flashback episode ("S.O.S.").
  • Desmond's flashbacks in "Live Together, Die Alone" were the first from a character who was not on board Flight 815.
  • In "Flashes Before Your Eyes" Desmond relives events of his past, aware that the events have already happened. Even though one could say he is aware it is a flashback, that's not precisely the case: he is aware it is his past, but even those events were part of a larger flashback segment which included the scene in the Hatch when Desmond switches the failsafe key and the scene when he is alone in the jungle, which take place before and after his "conscious flashback", respectively. The only actual difference between this flashback and the main format flashbacks is that this one is continuous, instead of intercut with on-island scenes as usual.
  • Nikki and Paulo's flashbacks in "Exposé" had both off island and on island segments, and had "X days ago" titles.
  • Juliet's final flashback in "One of Us" did not feature the usual "whooshing" noise since it occurred a long time after the crash of Flight 815.
  • In "Through the Looking Glass", there was a flash-forward centered around Jack, instead of a flashback. This would be repeated in season four with Hurley, Sayid, Kate, Sun and Ben.(("The Beginning of the End") ("The Economist") ("Eggtown") (("Ji Yeon") ("The Shape of Things to Come"))
  • Daniel, Charlotte, Miles & Frank were never on the plane but they had flashbacks nonetheless which take place after the crash, but before they got to the Island. ("Confirmed Dead")
  • When Naomi had a flashback she was already dead. ("Confirmed Dead")
  • Desmond's flashes in "The Constant" are similar to his flashes in "Flashes Before Your Eyes" in that they have to do with his consciousness moving through time rather than just his memory. However, he is aware that they are happening, and when he returns to the present, it's as if no time has passed at all. ("The Constant")
  • "Ji Yeon" was the first episode to feature both flashbacks and flashforwards intertwined.
  • "Dave" is the only episode to end on a flashback.

Multiple characters

Most flashbacks are from the POV of one character. For instance, while the "Hearts and Minds" flashbacks feature Shannon, they are clearly Boone's flashbacks, from his POV. There have been some exceptions to this rule:

Temporal exceptions

For the first two seasons, most flashbacks took place before the plane crash. However, there are some exceptions:


  • The producers dismissed the theory that the flashbacks are fake or implanted.[source needed]
  • Occasionally flashbacks open up with a character other than the centric character. Examples of this include the Emily Locke scenes at the start of "Cabin Fever" and the Frank Lapidus scene at the start of "The Lie". These flashbacks however do contain the centric character and advance their story, thus counting as their flashbacks.

(Redirected to Blockrock article)

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

This article is about the Autobot Mini-Con birdie. For the human millionaire industrialist, see G.B. Blackrock.
Blockrock is a Autobot-allied Mini-Con from the Classics portion of the Generation One continuity family (via the Universe "Classic Series").

Blockrock is Blaster's Mini-Con buddy. He rocks the block.


Universe (2008)

  • Autobot Blaster with Blockrock Mini-Con! (Voyager, 2008)
Available only with his larger parter "Autobot Blaster", Blockrock is a redeco of the Cybertron "Mini-Con" Laserbeak, transforming from a hexagonal "bomb" into a robotic bird. In bomb mode he can be stored in Blaster's chest compartment, or on the underside either wing.
Blockrock can perch on the tips of Blaster's wings in his condor form by inserting his peg into one of the trailing edge holes, as well as Blaster's right arm. Despite his Mini-Con branding, he does not have a Powerlinx socket.
This mold was also used to make Hell Buzzsaw.


  • Autobot Blaster's packaging-back bio refers to him having a partner called "Flashback". However, "Flashback" is not present on the online version of the bio, being replaced with "Blockrock". Obviously, the packaging bio accidentally uses an earlier name for the Mini-Con bird.
  • Blockrock's name may be an homage to G.B. Blackrock, from the Generation One Marvel Comics.

City of Heroes

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From City of Heroes Wiki



The flashback system lets heroes and villains run through Story Arcs and badge missions they may have missed earlier or simply want to experience again. These operate like Task Forces as there are minimum and maximum level requirements, other contacts are unavailable, only the team leader can initiate a flashback and once started the team can not add new members. Flashbacks involve Time Travel, which is initiated from the Pillar of Ice and Flame in the Ouroboros Enclave or the equivalent base item in a Supergroup Base.

Story Arcs involve a series of missions, often 8 to 12 or more, involving a given enemy group or story line. Badge Missions are short, usually just a single mission, which awards its own badge.

If starting from Ouroboros then everyone on the team has to be level 25 or higher, just to be in the zone, but from a base only the team leader has to be 25+. Each mission has a minimum level, required of all members, and a maximum level that characters will Examplar (malefactor) down to as needed. The minimum levels for each mission are not shown when accessing the mission list.

The in-game introduction to the flashback system is provided by the missions of The Pilgrim in Ouroboros.

The popularity of the Flashback System is due, in part, to its 75 Achievement Badges and the roughly 15 Accomplishment Badges that can be obtained from its badge missions.

How It Works

To do a Flashback mission or Story Arc, click on an Aspect of the Pillar. A dialog box will appear with a list of Story Arcs and Badge Missions, sorted by level range. Arcs you have already completed will have a star next to them.

When you pick one, the box displays the introductory mission description from that arc's contact. Accept the mission, and you're given another dialog box filled with buttons and dropdown menus. These are a selection of optional challenges. If you're looking to test your might, or hunting for badges, these options are a treasure trove.

Once you accept a mission you are directed to click on the crystal to teleport to the mission's contact, but you need not do that if you prefer to go a more direct route to the first mission. Throughout a story arc the crystals, either in Ouroboros or a base, can be used when needed to teleport back to the contact again.


A total of 75 Achievement Badges are unique to the flashback system. 10 are awarded for completing a certain number of flashbacks — both story arcs and badge missions count. 65 are awarded for successful completion of story arcs (not badge missions) using challenge settings.

Some arcs have missions that can be failed. Failing those missions may result in failing the arc, which means that the badges will not be rewarded. (An example is the mission "Stop 30 Fir Bolg entering door" from Skipper LeGrange. Failing it immediately ends the arc, without badge credit.)

Total Completed

Complete a number of Flashback Story Arcs and Badge missions.

Time Limit

Complete a Flashback Story Arc within a certain time limit. Different arcs have different time limits. (30, 60, 120 minutes is a pretty common setup, though). The timer begins at the moment of accepting the story arc. When the time limit is set, the arc must be completed in the amount of time specified in order to earn the associated badge. If you log out or are disconnected during the course of the mission, the timer will still be active.

Limited Lives

Complete a Flashback Story Arc with a limited number of team member deaths.

Power Challenges

Badges are awarded in each level range for various adjustments to player or enemy powers.
