Germany was a nation-state in Europe. The capital city of Germany is Berlin.

History

The German nation has played a major role in the history of Earth, for both good and ill. Between 1914 and 1918, Germany fought against a group of allied powers - consisting of Great Britain, France, and eventually the United States of America - in what became known as World War I. Following their eventual defeat in 1918, the Germans became shamed by their defeat, and that shame was one of the contributed to another world war in 1939. (TOS novel: My Brother's Keeper: "Republic").

Germany was one of the main combatants on the Axis Powers side, with Italy and Japan, in Earth's Second World War. Germany was defeated by the allied powers. Following World War II, Germany was at the front lines of the Cold War. The country had been divided up into occupation zones, which were administered by each of the primary allied powers. France, Britain, and the United States combined their occupation zones in western Germany into a single area - which they called West Germany. The Soviets, which had become hostile towards the other former allies set up a proxy nation which was called East Germany. In the early 1990s as communism collapsed across Europe the two halves of Germany were reunified into a single German nation, which was called Germany.

In 1953, the New York City office of Incredible Tales of Scientific Wonder contained several "bizarre" souvenirs from Germany. (DS9 novelization: Far Beyond the Stars)

The Federal Republic of Germany, or the Bundesrepublik Deutschland in German, is a country in central Europe. It is bordered to the north by the North Sea, Denmark, and the Baltic Sea, to the east by Poland and the Czech Republic, to the south by Austria and Switzerland, and to the west by France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. Within its borders are a portion of the Alps mountains, the famous Rhine river, and the Black Forest.

Germany is a democratic parliamentary federal republic, made up of 16 states, which in certain spheres act independently of the federation. Historically consisting of several sovereign nations with their own history, language (distinct dialects), culture and religion, Germany was unified as a nation state during the Franco-Prussian War in 1870/1871.

Germany is a member state of the United Nations, NATO, the G8 and the G4 nations, and is a founding member of the European Union. It is the European Union's most populous and most economically powerful member state. Germany's current leader and also its first woman to become chancellor (the head of government) is Angela Merkel, who was elected in 2005.

The German language is one of the world's major languages. It is spoken by more than 120 million people in 38 countries of the world. It is — like English, Spanish and French — a pluricentric language with Germany, Austria and Switzerland as the three main centers of usage. Therefore, the following Muppet co-productions aired in all three countries:

Fallout

From The Vault

Germany was a pre-War European country. After the Second World War, the country was divided into three distinct states, the German Democratic Republic (East Germany), the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) and the Republic of Austria. By 2060, as the European Commonwealth dissolved, the country fell into disarray, bickering and quarreling with its neighbours over the last few remaining resources on Earth. As the picture of a destroyed Reichstag in the Fallout intro suggests, full-out war broke out between the former allies.

Country of origin of the creators of the renowned PPK12 Gauss Pistol, M72 Gauss Rifle, MP9 10mm SMG and the Vindicator Minigun.

Little is known about the country in-game outside the above references, although the presence of Gauss rifles in mainland United States in copious amounts as well as employment of a strikingly similiar weapon system by the Chinese implies the Teutons had equal opportunity business deals with both sides of the Great War.

Vault-Tec scientist Stanislaus Braun was from Kronach, a town in Bavaria, Germany.

GTA

From Grand Theft Wiki

The Flag of Germany

Germany (in German: Deutschland) is a country in Europe. The country uses the USK rating system to rate all Grand Theft Auto releases, with the majority of the series being rated USK 16+.

Since Germany is quite strict on ratings, after paranoia over violent video games, a number of the GTA games (since GTA III) have suffered cuts or edits. Some examples include: the removal of blood, pedestrians no longer dropping money when killed, no headshots, some missions removed, some weapons missing or lack additional functionality.

In Grand Theft Auto IV

Several background characters can be heard saying German phrases like "Scheiße!" (shit), "Entschuldigung" (excuse me), "Er hat eine Waffe" (he has a gun), "Er will mich töten" (he's trying to kill me), "Was wollen Sie von mir" (what do you want ?), and "Gehen Sie!" (Go Away !).

The location of Germany in the EU (Dark Green)

Germany is a parliamentary federal republic of sixteen states (Bundesländer). The capital city and seat of government is Berlin. As a nation-state, the country was unified amidst the Franco-Prussian War in 1871 by Otto von Bismark. After its defeat in World War II Germany was divided into two sections, East Germany and West Germany. East Germany was a socialist controlled by the Soviet Union, and called the Deutsche Demokratische Republik, or the DDR. The West was a Republic controlled by the Western allies of the Second World war and also known as the Federal Republic. During the collapse of the Soviet Union, East Germany dissolved into the West by 1990.

TV stations

In Germany, the first three seasons of Lost initially aired on Premiere (now Sky), an encrypted subscription-based pay TV offering, usually a few months after the episodes' initial US airing. Premiere offered the episodes with two optional audio channels, one featuring the original English language version and the other one a German dub. Both tracks featured stereo sound.

About six months after an episode had aired on Premiere, it was also aired on ProSieben, a restriction-free cable channel. Unlike Premiere, ProSieben only broadcast the show in the dubbed German version, without an optional English audio channel.

Starting with season 4, the pay TV broadcasting rights have been transferred from Premiere to Fox Channel, a new subscription-based station. Like Premiere, Fox also offers optional German and English audio channels. The launch of season 4 was heralded by an advance screening of "The Beginning of the End" in the Cinedom theater in Cologne on June 8th, 2008, with Terry O'Quinn attending the event as a special guest. Since October 2008, the Fox Channel has also been available to Premiere subscribers (thus replacing the channel "Premiere Serie", which Lost had previously aired on), including scheduled reruns of season 4 of Lost for a few weeks until Lost was put on hold for the time being, due to the impending free TV broadcasts on Pro Sieben two months later. Season 5, which start airing in April 2009, was available to subscribers of Premiere (which was later renamed into "Sky") from the get-go.

ProSieben handled the free TV broadcasts six months (or later) after the initial airing on Fox up until season 4. On July 30th, 2009, ProSieben announced that they will not broadcast season 5 and 6 due to low ratings. Instead, Lost, together with numerous other shows that have gotten sub-par ratings on ProSieben, has been passed on to kabel eins, an associated station. kabel eins starts to air Season 5 on January 21th, 2010 with two episodes each week.

German dub

Main article: Voice actors

The German dub of Lost is heavily debated among German fans. While the most extreme group rejects any German dubs simply out of principle, people at the other end of the spectrum view it as their only way of watching the show since they lack the necessary language skills to understand the original English dialogue. Meanwhile, many fans between those extremes criticize translation errors and complain about the dubbing voices (often simply because those don't sound close enough to the English voices), while others regard the dub as a satisfactory adaption within the boundaries imposed by technical circumstances and tight scheduling.

The German dub of Lost is handled by Berlin-based Arena Film GmbH & Co. Synchron KG. The German dialogues are written by Eva Schaaf, while the voice director is Timmo Niesner[1], an experienced voice actor himself (who also serves as the German voice of Randy Nations). Remarkably for a German dub, the German version of Lost features many voice actors of foreign heritage for characters with foreign accents, in order to ensure authentic-sounding accents for those characters in the dub. For example, Sun and Jin are both voiced by native Koreans, Moon-Suk Kang and See-Young Cho, in scenes where the characters speak English in the original version (whereas scenes featuring the two speak in Korean usually keep the original voices of Yunjin Kim and Daniel Dae Kim, respectively), whereas Mr. Eko is voiced by Michael Ojake, a native Nigerian.[2] The frequent use of such rather unusual voice actors is arranged by International Actors (formerly "Foreign Faces"), an agency specializing in actors of foreign origin working in Germany that was originally founded by Tayfun Bademsoy, a voice actor of Turkish origin who also serves as Sayid's German voice actor. However, this only applies to characters with truly foreign accents; characters with noteworthy accents who hail from countries that have English as their first language, such as Claire, Sawyer, Charlie or Desmond, don't have any particular accents in the German dub.

Beginning with season 3, the German voice actors for John Locke, Tom (Mr. Friendly) and Danny Pickett were changed. In Locke's case, this happened between "Flashes Before Your Eyes" and "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead" in the original Premiere broadcast; however, for the Pro Sieben airing and the DVD release, the episodes already featuring the original voice actor, Lothar Hinze, had Locke's scenes redubbed with the new voice actor, Ernst Meincke, to ensure a better consistency within the season at least.

Beginning with season 5, Korean-born Moon-Suk Kang was replaced as Sun's German voice actress by Chinese-born Meylan Chao, who had previously dubbed Achara in the German dub of "Stranger in a Strange Land".

German DVD and Blu-ray releases

German DVD releases for Lost are based on the ProSieben broadcasts. A DVD box set is usually released once all the episodes included have aired on Pro Sieben, although scheduling changes for the Pro Sieben broadcasts have resulted in several episodes contained on the season 3, part 1 box set being available on DVD before they had aired on Pro Sieben.

Unlike other European countries such as the UK, France or Italy, where season 1 was initially split up into two boxes, only to be re-released as a full season box a few months later, the German edition of season 1 was released as a full season box set from the get-go starting on December 8th, 2005, with a 16+ rating. Audio tracks are available in German, English and French; subtitles are available in German, English, English for the hearing-impaired, French, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish and Dutch. Whereas in North America, "Exodus, Part 2" was aired as a single, double-length episode and was therefore put onto disc 6 of the Lost: The Complete First Season DVD box set in its entirety, all the region 2 countries aired "Exodus" as a three-part episode, with part 2 split up further into two parts. As a consequence, only the first half of part 2 was included on disc 6 of the DVD box set, whereas the second half of part 2 (aka "part 3") was put on disc 7 instead. In return, a few bonus features from the North American version of the season 1 DVD box set are missing. A Blu-ray release of season 1 has been announced for June 18th, 2009. [3]

Season 2 was released split up into two parts, like in the UK and France. Unlike the latter two countries, though, a German full season box set for season 2 hasn't been announced yet. Part 1 was released on December 7th, 2006, with a 16+ rating. Part 2 followed on March 1st, 2007, with a "not suitable for minors" rating (see Trivia for more details). Audio tracks are available in German, English and Italian; subtitles are available in German, English, English for the hearing-impaired and Italian. As a result of the "split season" concept, the material from the bonus DVD has also been split across the two box sets, with each box including a bonus material disc that cointains about half the material from the North American bonus material disc. In addition, the German season 2 box sets feature a few easter eggs that were not included on the regular North American Lost: The Complete Second Season boy set, but were only available to US fans on an exclusive Best Buy bonus DVDs. A complete 7 disc set for season 2 was finally released on July 12th, 2008 16 months after the release of the second half of season 2. A Blu-ray release of season 2 has been announced for June 18th, 2009. [4]

Season 3 was again released in two parts, with Germany being the only country to date to get the season in this form. Part 1 was released on December 6th, 2007; part 2 was released on March 6th, 2008. The Season 3 Part 1 DVD box set released in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, which is otherwise identical to the German release, contained an error pressing, which had the box set's bonus disc's content replaced by episodes 13-16 (which are also available with the Season 3 Part 2 box set). The same error was also present on at least some boxsets available for rent in German video stores. The "regular" German for-sale release, however, does include the correct bonus disc. Prior to the release of the Season 3 Part 1 box set, online retailers listed it with a "not suitable for minors" rating, the same rating the Season 2 Part 2 boxset had gotten; however, when it was released, the Season 3 Part 1 box set got a 16+ rating. A complete 7 disc box set of season 3 has been announced for June 18th, 2009. [5]

Season 4 was released as a complete box set on April 9th, 2009, both on DVD (six discs) and - for the first time in Germany - also on Blu-ray Disc (five discs). However, season 4 had already been released both on DVD and on Blu-ray Disc in France (and Switzerland) in November 2008, featuring a German audio track and German menu screens (neither of which are advertized on the packaging).

Episode titles

Unlike many other TV shows aired in Germany that feature a lot of creativity with the episode titles during localization, the German edition of Lost tries to use literal translations of the English titles whenever possible, or even to retain the same title as the English version if the title in question could also be easily understood by a German audience (e.g. "S.O.S."). Only in cases where an original episode title is based on a pun that only works in English, the German version will sport a more "traditional" title instead.

Notes

  • 1 The German language DVD menu omits the last word, making the title "Die anderen 48" ("The Other 48"). This error is present both on the German Season 2 Part 1 DVD box set and on the later Complete Season 2 box set.
  • 2 In the German dub of the episode, this is used as a German term for "long con"; however, this term (the common figurative use means "endurance" or "persistence") is actually unknown in Germany in this specific context outside of this episode.
  • 3 This term can actually be translated as "maternity leave"; however, it's rather uncommon in this specific context, the more common German term for that would be "Mutterschaftsurlaub".
  • 4 This spelling was used for the TV airings, despite containing a glaring spelling/grammatical error; on the German season 3 part 1 DVD box, the episode title is spelled "Fremd im fremden Land" on the DVD's back cover, and "Fremd in fremdem Land" on the DVD menu - both versions are gramatically correct.
  • 5 Unlike the English "you", which can be both singular and plural, the German "du" specifically addresses the second person singular. As such, it is a direct quote from Ben, who says the line to Jack in the episode.

Trivia

Message from Jack as a commercial gift
  • "The Other 48 Days" was only shown in an edited version, even in primetime.
  • In the German language broadcasts of Lost, the name of the character Autumn has been changed to Amanda.
  • After being aired on German TV, "One of Them" surprisingly got a "KJ" rating ("KJ", short for "keine Jugendfreigabe", means "not approved for minors") for the DVD release. The reasons stated were the torture scenes, coupled with Sayid's statement at the end claiming that he felt no remorse. (confirmation of reasons behind the rating, in German) As a consequence, the Season 2 Part 2 DVD set must not be sold to persons below legal age (18 years in Germany), and can't be ordered online without an ID. This is a very rare rating for a television series in Germany, and only the second season of "The Shield", the second Season of "Nip/Tuck", "Rome" and "Band of Brothers" have been rated "KJ" as well. Even "The Sopranos", "Deadwood" and "24" got rated "FSK-16".
  • For the German market, all the season finales thus far were split up into standard-length episodes: "Exodus, Part 2" became "Exodus, Part 2" and "Exodus, Part 3"; and "Live Together, Die Alone" and "Through the Looking Glass" were both split up into two parts. This resulted in different consequences for those episodes:
    • In the case of "Live Together, Die Alone", two brief scenes were cut to provide extra time for the "Previously on Lost" segment at the beginning of part 2: The first scene occurs immediately after the "Lost" title sequence in the original US airing of the episode. Kate is trying to calm down her fellow survivors following the arrival of Desmond's boat. She then asks Jack for advice, and Jack simply tells her to tell the others that Desmond was back, while he will try to find out the rest. In the German edition of the episode, this entire scene is missing, and Act 1 simply starts with Jack approaching Desmond, who is sitting at the campfire. Since the credits for the episode were shown during the deleted scene, they had to be pushed back to the new beginning for Act 1. The other missing scene features Desmond and Kelvin initiating an artificial lockdown inside the Swan. The German edition of the episode starts with the Swan already in lockdown mode. Supposedly, neither scene was ever dubbed into German, as the DVDs also contain the TV broadcast edits of those episodes.
    • In case of "Through the Looking Glass", a conversation between Jack and Kate, during which Jack confesses his love for Kate, was moved from its original position (between Locke's encounter with Walt and Jack's flash-forward where he arrives at the funeral parlor) to an earlier position (before Hurley catches up with Sawyer and Juliet). As a result, part 1 ends with the Locke/Walt scene, and part 2 immediately starts with the flash-forward right away.
  • The first two episodes of season 2 were shown as a double feature. The ratings were disappointing: only 2,05 million people (6,8%) watched the episodes. Comparison: the pilot caught the attention of 3,88 million people. One reason could be the large break (10 months) between the seasons or the fact, that many people have seen the episodes already, thanks to illegal P2P downloading networks and the popular pay TV network "Premiere".
  • Trailer for season 2: download!
  • Pro Sieben set up their own promotional site for the series, 108minuten.de, with the information from the site being considered similarly deutrocanonical as that from the UK Lost: The Untold website.
  • To announce the start of Season 2, there were bottles with a message from Jack handed out in some beach clubs in Germany.

The letter says:

„Lieber Finder,

mein Name ist Jack Shephard. Ich gehöre zu einer Gruppe Überlebender des Fluges 815 der Oceanic Airlines. Wir konnten uns auf eine scheinbar unbewohnte Insel retten. Seitdem sterben hier Menschen unter mysteriösen Umständen. Die Insel scheint es nicht gut mit uns zu meinen. Vor einigen Tagen haben wir eine Luke im Boden gefunden. Was passiert, wenn wir sie öffnen, wissen wir nicht. Wir haben Angst!"

Translation:

"Dear finder [of this message],

My name is Jack Shephard. I belong to a group of survivors of Flight 815 of Oceanic Airlines. We stranded on an abandoned island. People have been dying under mysterious circumstances since. The Island has been everything but good to us. Some days ago we found a hatch in the ground. We don't know what'll happen if we open it. We're afraid."

  • On June 8th, 2008, one week before the launch of Season 4 on the new Fox Channel station, an advance screening of the first episode, "The Beginning of the End", was held in the Cinedom theater in Cologne. Terry O'Quinn was attending the event as a special guest star.[6] [7] [8] [9] [10]

ProSieben promo with Charlie speaking German. Dominic Monaghan was born, and spent 10 years of his life in Germany, and is a fluent German speaker. However, this isn't him voicing the character, just lip-synching the German words, whereas his German voice actor Tommy Morgenstern provides the voice.

Points of Interest

Cologne
Cologne is Germany's fourth-largest city after Berlin, Hamburg and Munich, and is the largest city both in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia and within the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Area, one of the major European metropolitan areas with more than ten million inhabitants. It is one of the oldest cities in Germany, having been founded by the Romans in the year 38 BC. In 1753, Cologne was the scene of a conflict between local villagers and the vampire lord known as Dracula. The villagers succeeded in securing Dracula to a cross while a priest named Father Eisner drove a stake through his heart. Eisner's adopted daughter Marie Eisner later resurrected the vampire in the hopes that he would bestow his gift of immortality upon the elder priest. Instead, Dracula slew the priest and promised that one day he would claim Marie as well. [1]
Reichenbach Clinic
The Reichenbach Clinic was a hospice located in Cologne during the early 19th century. In 1823, elderly Sister Marie Eisner was spending the final days of her long life bedridden when she received a visit from the vampire lord Dracula. She remembered Dracula from her youth when as a child she drove him away by slipping a crucifix charm around his neck. Dracula wanted to turn the old woman into a vampire, but she died before he ever got the chance. [2]

Germany is a nation-state on the European continent on Earth. Berlin is its capital city, and Hamburg, Munich (German: München), Frankfurt, Stuttgart Cologne (German: Köln) and Emden are also cities in Germany. People or things originating from Germany are described as German.

Germany's flag contains three colors, in order, from top to bottom: black, red and gold. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")

Famous Germans throughout history include physicist Albert Einstein, inventor of printing technology Johann Gutenberg, philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche and composer Johannes Brahms. (TNG: "Descent"; ENT: "Borderland"; TOS: "Requiem for Methuselah")

Germany was an Axis power in World War II, seeing one of its darkest periods in history under the leadership of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. (ENT: "Storm Front", "Storm Front, Part II"; TOS: "City on the Edge of Forever"; VOY: "The Killing Game", "The Killing Game, Part II") One such dark part was the bombing of Dresden in 1945, during which Starfleet officers Scott Fack, Anne Cobry and Antonio Ramirez stopped an alien invasion from spreading beyond Dresden. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Hemorrhage")

Some of Scott Fack's ancestors lived in Germany. His father was born there, near the border with Denmark. (Star Trek: Minnesota: "Dirge")

Lieutenant Commander David Glass of the 172nd Search and Rescue Squadron was half-German in descent and was raised in the Ruhr River Valley of Germany. (Star Trek: Voyager - Dark Realm)
