History

The area of France, around 3.5 billion years ago

The area that contains what later became known as France was, according to Q, the place where all life began on Earth, approximately 3.5 billions years ago. In an alternate timeline, Q brought Captain Picard back to the region to observe how he had destroyed humanity. (TNG novelization: All Good Things...)

Prior to the fall of the Roman Empire, the region was known as "Gaul." The region was conquered by Julius Caesar in the 1st century BCE, a military victory admired, in an alternate timeline, by Claude Picard. (TNG comic: "The Gift") After the fall of the Rome and the arrival and assimilation of numerous Germanic tribes across Europe, a tribe known as the Franks assumed control of the region. Eventually, it became known by its modern name, with the inhabitants of France known as the French, speaking a Latin-descended language of the same name. By the 24th century, however, French was considered to be an antiquated language, and was rarely spoken. (TNG episode: "Code of Honor")

France had its share of scientific discoveries, for example, numerous elements had been discovered or created there:

(TOS reference: Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual)

During World War II, France was occupied by Nazi Germany. In 2371, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Rose Garden had flowers whose originators had been smuggled out of France before the German invasion. (DS9 novelization: The Search)

In 1995, France was blamed for resuming nuclear testing of atomic bombs, which drew the condemnation of other international states. The reports were actually a cover-story concocted by Gary Seven to cover the nuclear explosion on Chrysalis Island. (TOS novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2)

By the 2020s, a government that was based on the ideals of Leon Trotsky came to power in France. In 2024, France was suffering from the effects of student protests. Two guests at a party held by Chris Brynner cancelled a trip to the Alps because of the trouble. (DS9 episode: "Past Tense, Part II")

In 2130, the Traité d'Unification was signed in Paris, at the Place de la Concorde, establishing the existence of United Earth. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)

The Palais de la Concorde in Paris, France.

With the foundation of the United Federation of Planets in 2161, the Federation soon established Paris as its capital. Because of its position as "heart of the Federation", many Federation and Starfleet facilities were stationed in France. Including a Starfleet Academy flight training base in Marseille. (VOY episode: "The Cloud"). The Palais was built in Paris on the site of the Place de la Concorde in the late 22nd century. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation; TOS novel: Swordhunt)

Muppet

Up to date as of February 02, 2010

From Muppet Wiki

France is a European nation famed for its cuisine, the Eiffel Tower, and a populace stereotypically marked by snooty accents and moustaches. The country donated the Statue of Liberty to the United States of America. Miss Piggy has famously affected a French accent and a Parisian sophistication. In Muppet Treasure Island, an indignant Benjamina Gunn (played by Piggy) claims her mother came all the way from France for the wedding to Captain Abraham Smollett.

  • The French language is spoken in Canada and figured in some early Sesame Street episodes and quite heavily in Sesame Park, particularly through Louis, the Francophone Otter.

History of hockey in France

France was one of the earliest European nations to play ice hockey; it already had a national team in 1905. It was also a former French player, Louis Magnus, who created the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) in 1908 along with representatives from France, Belgium, Great Britain and Switzerland.

Consequently, it is no surprise that the Championnat de France (French Championship), from which evolved the current Ligue Magnus, appeared as soon as 1903.

Organization

Ice hockey in France works accordingly to a promotion and relegation system. Besides the league system, there is also a national Cup (la Coupe de France). Another Cup, the Coupe de la Ligue (League's Cup) is a tournament played within the Ligue Magnus. A special match, the Match des Champions (Champions' Match) is also played between the Ligue Magnus winner and the Coupe de la League winner. The winner of that match earns the Jacques Lacarrière Trophy.

Piracy

Most of the French Lost fans watch it in downloading U.S. episodes through p2p networks, because episodes appears on TV almost a year after the U.S. Furthermore, some people don't like dubbed movies/series, and prefer watching it in the original language with subtitles. So a large community of translators and synchronizers is working very hard as soon as the episodes are available on the web, to make fans happy. Recently, a new DADVSI bill passed in France, working to do the following things: making P2P (Peer to Peer) networks illegal, the end of the private copy, and making DRM's the standard.

Differences in the show

Some minor changes were made in the French version of Lost regarding the language of Danielle Rousseau. In the original version, the castaways receive the French radio transmission and can't understand it (apart from Shannon). This couldn't work in France for obvious reasons. Thus, Rousseau's language (and crew) was changed to German and Shannon is said to have been living in Germany rather than in France.

In the episode where Sayid is studying Rousseau's maps with the help of Shannon, they're unedited and written in French. This has been slightly modified by Shannon saying that the maps are partly in French and partly in German (which isn't shown on screen).

The Lost Experience

In the alternate reality game The Lost Experience, the protagonist Rachel Blake made some entries from France.

History

The Celts were present in France in ancient times.

The British Empire was at war or maintained an uneasy peace with France throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. The British Royal Navy fought with the French Navy at various points during this time.

During World War II, the German Nazi forces invaded and controlled France for much of the war. The Allies invaded France later in the war, with the United States armed forces playing a role in liberating France. (VOY: "The Killing Game", "The Killing Game, Part II") Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart was a British soldier helping France prepare for invasion when the Nazis invaded in 1940.
