Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Los Angeles is a major city in California. Perpugilliam "Peri" Brown, companion of the Fifth and Sixth Doctors, lived in nearby Pasadena.

Presumably it survived the fall of the United States and the destruction of New York City in the 21st century. In the far future, the Earth boasted a feature called the Los Angeles Crevasse; it was probably near the present-day Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is a city on Earth, located in the U.S. state of California on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.

A genius died there in 1991, but was taken away to a better place moments afterward (ST short story: "The Man Who Sold the Sky")

It was visited in 1996 by the time-traveling crew of the USS Voyager and DTI agents Dulmer and Lucsly (VOY episodes: "Future's End, Part I", "Future's End, Part II"; VOY short story: "Almost... But Not Quite")

A large part of the city was submerged under 74 meters of water by the Hermosa earthquake of 2047, and the city earned the name of Los Angeles Island. (TOS novelization: Star Trek: The Motion Picture) By the 24th century, the area would be known as the planet's largest coral reef and home to thousands of aquatic species. (VOY episode: "Future's End, Part I")

Following the death of his parents, Lee Kelso spent his youth in an institution located in the city. (TOS novel: Constitution)

In 2273, Admiral James T. Kirk had taken a tube from Gibraltar to Los Angeles, and an air tram from Los Angeles to San Francisco as he headed for Starfleet Headquarters. (TOS novelization: Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

The Federation starship USS Los Angeles was named for this city.

The Boneyard, or Angel's Boneyard, is what remains of Los Angeles, named so both for its decimated skyscrapers, reduced to their metal "skeleton", and for skeletons of the dead that littered the city after the Great War. The East-Coast field offices of Vault-Tec were located somewhere in the Los Angeles area, and a Vault-Tec demonstration Vault, which was not part of the Vault Experiment, was built there.

LA was effectively decimated during the Great War. The majority of people in LA are people who came to the city after the destruction. Most to scavenge what they could, be it equipment, food or people. Los Angeles houses gunrunners, gangs, and various people with delusions of grandeur. The largest concentration of people live in a "suburb" called Adytum.

Contents

History

Most people in L.A. died after the bombs dropped, due to radiation poisoning, disease, famine, and each other. Some, however, took shelter in the demonstration Vault, and eventually most of them emerged in 2092, founding the Boneyard. Many of them were the founders of Adytum, a fenced town in the suburbs of the old Los Angeles. Some, however, founded other communities, like the Blades, the Rippers, the Followers of the Apocalypse and the Gun Runners.

In 2155, the Master learned the location of the L.A. Vault, conquered the inhabitants and set up operations there, and the human cultists began to use the Vault as their powerbase. Eventually, a monumental building known as the Cathedral was constructed above the Vault. The Cultists thus became known as the Children of the Cathedral. Of those that remained in the Vault, most became the Master's servants and members of the Children of the Cathedral. Those that left could be part of almost any organization in L.A.

In the 2150s, a pack of deathclaws appeared in the Boneyard, taking over the base of the Rippers. In 2159 Jon Zimmerman, the town's mayor, hired a band of mercenaries known as the Regulators to help protect Adytum from the deathclaw and the odd random attack by raiders, who by 2161 were in control of Adytum.

The Cathedral was destroyed in 2162 either by the Vault Dweller or by the Master himself, when he learned that his super mutants were sterile.

By 2241, Los Angeles became one of the states of the New California Republic and Adytum became known as New Adytum.

Comments

It is not known what is the canon outcome of Vault Dweller's adventures in the Boneyard. The only available piece of information comes from the Vault Dweller's memoirs: I found many enemies, and a few friends, in the Boneyard. I killed when necessary and learned more about the nature of my true foes. It is not known for certain, however, whether he did uncover the assassination of Zimmerman's son by the Regulators and their attempt at putting their blame on the Blades, and whether he freed Adytum from Regulator rule. We don't even know if he killed the deathclaws, so it is entirely possible that Adytum joined the NCR under the control of Regulators, after the Vault Dweller was fooled into killing the Blades.

Quotes

  • The city of Los Angeles must have been the largest in the world before the War. The L.A. Boneyard stretched forever, the skeletons of buildings lying under the hot sun. Not even the wind entered this dead city. - Vault Dweller's memoirs

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

The Star Trek Expanded Universe Database is for fanon and related content. See Memory-Alpha.org for the canon Star Trek wiki.

Los Angeles (also known as L.A.) was an Earth city located on the west coast of Earth's North American continent.

In 1996, the crew of the USS Voyager (NCC-74656), thrown back in time, visited Los Angeles. At this time, the headquarters of corporation Chronowerx was located in the city. It also appeared untouched by the effects of the Eugenics Wars.

In 2047, the Hermosa Earthquake occured, causing parts of the city to sink 200 meters into the ocean, creating the planet's largest coral reef. (VOY: "Future's End, Part I", " Future's End, Part II")

No evidence in canon Star Trek exists that Los Angeles still exists as a city. Events like the Hermosa Earthquake or World War III may have destroyed Los Angeles.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Los Angeles is a city in the American state of California.

Revenge of the Fallen (franchise)

In the 2009 film, Revenge of the Fallen, Los Angeles is revealed to be the home of Sam Witwicky when his driver's license is shown on television during the Decepticons' satellite feed hijacking. It is also mentioned as the place where the major battle between the Autobots and Decepticons occurred two years before. In that film, the city where the battle occurred was known as Mission City, though it was very obviously filmed in Los Angeles. This is likely a retcon, as well as the fact that the Witwickys were previously referred to as residents of Tranquility.
