History

The founding of Seattle is usually dated from the arrival of the Denny Party in 1851. The next April, Arthur A. Denny abandoned the original site at Alki in favor of the better protected site on Elliott Bay that is now part of downtown Seattle. Around the same time, David Swinson "Doc" Maynard began settling the land immediately south of Denny's.

Seattle in its early years relied on the timber industry, shipping logs (and, later, milled timber) to San Francisco.

When Henry Yesler brought the first steam sawmill to the region, he chose a location on the waterfront where Maynard and Denny's plats met. Thereafter Seattle would dominate the lumber industry.

Charlie Terry sold out Alki (which, after his departure barely held on as a settlement), moved to Seattle and began acquiring land. He either owned or partially owned Seattle's first timber ships. He eventually gave a land grant to the University of the Territory of Washington (later University of Washington), and was instrumental in the politics to establish an urban infrastructure.

The logging town developed rapidly into a small city. Despite being officially founded by the Methodists of the Denny Party, Seattle quickly developed a reputation as a wide-open town, a haven for prostitution, liquor, and gambling. Some attribute this, at least in part, to Maynard.

Real estate records show that nearly all of the city's first 60 businesses were on, or immediately adjacent to, Maynard's plat.

All of this occurred against a background of sometimes rocky relations with the local Native American population, including a pitched battle January 25, 1856.

Seattle was incorporated as a city on December 2, 1869. At this time, the population was approximately 1,000.

From The Vault

Seattle

The following is based on Project V13 pre-release information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Before the Great War, Seattle was a city in Washington State and then in the Northwest Commonwealth. One of its major landmarks is the Space Needle, which seems to have survived the War. Unlike the Core Region or the Capital Wasteland, Seattle is, at least in the winter, covered in snow.

Appearances

Seattle appears in a piece of concept art for Project V13 (Fallout Online), where the Space Needle is clearly visible. It is not known whether it will actually appear in-game. It was also going to feature in the canceled Fallout Extreme.

Seattle is a city on Earth, and one of the major cities of the North American continent.

History

Early history

Seattle was first settled November 14, 1851, by Arthur A. Denny and his crew, who subsequently became known as the Denny party. Its first name was New York, then Duwamps, then finally it was renamed Seattle after Chief Noah Sealth who was chief of the two tribes living in the area. Seattle is the hub for the Greater Puget Sound region. Its official nickname is the Emerald City; the name alludes to the lush evergreen trees in the surrounding area. It is also referred to informally as the Gateway to Alaska, Queen City, and Jet City, due to the local influence of the Boeing aircraft industry from the 20th through the late 21st centuries.

20th century

Major events in Seattle's history include the Great Seattle Fire of 1889, which destroyed the central business district (but took no lives); the Klondike gold rush, which made Seattle a major transportation center; the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition of 1909, which is largely responsible for the layout of the University of Washington campus; the Seattle General Strike of 1919, the first general strike in the country; the 1962 Century 21 Exposition, a World's Fair; the 1990 Goodwill Games; and the WTO Ministerial Conference of 1999, marked by street protests and a series of riots. A motion picture based on the riots, titled Battle in Seattle, was scheduled for release at the end of 2007. The Major League Baseball all-star game was held at Safeco Field in Seattle during the 2001 season.

The city was decimated in the latter half of the Eugenics Wars by various Augment factions and nearly half destroyed. The influence of billionaires Paul Allen and Bill Gates, in addition to federal funding, rebuilt the city after the last of the Augments were defeated and Khan Noonien Singh went missing.

21st century

On February 28, 2001, a state of emergency was declared after the Nisqually Earthquake, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake, rocked the region. Damage was moderate, but served as a reminder that the coastal Pacific Northwest — and the area around the Seattle Fault, in particular — was under a constant threat of earthquakes.

The city was left without power for the better part of two years due to the onslaught of World War III in the 2050s. By 2063, it was a wasteland, home to undesirable elements and scores of homeless people trying to find refuge in powerless skyscrapers.

22nd century

After First Contact and humanity's greatest social reawakening in 2063, the people of the world found a new purpose and decided to remake their world in the image of utopia. By the year 2115, with the assistance of Vulcan engineers, the city was restored to its former glory as it became a bustling metropolitan area once again.

The city became home to such places as the Zefram Cochrane Warp-7 Complex in the 2150s. After the achievements of the Enterprise (NX-01), humanity was ready to make the next leap in engineering, and secretly constructed the starship Daedalus as the first vehicle featuring this speed.

24th century

In 2375, Seattle went under a month-long city-wide red alert due to attacks on San Francisco during the Dominion War, but such attacks were thwarted by the crew of the USS Enterprise-E.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Seattle is a city in the Generation One continuity family.
Typical Seattleites.

Seattle is a city in the state of Washington in the United States of America, near the city of Tacoma. It contains a military base, an interstate highway, and a bunch of goddamn nuke-hating hippies.

Note: The real-life Seattle has no military bases, though some neighboring cities do. Fort Lewis in particular is roughly 40 miles away, in a different county. The rest of the description is still absolutely true, though.

Fiction

Marvel Generation One comic

Seattle's Fort Lewis was the site chosen for the activation of Power Station Alpha, which was overseen by congresspeople, guarded by G.I. Joe, protested by anti-nuclear-power demonstrators, menaced by Dreadnoks, infiltrated by Bombshell, and ultimately stolen by Cobra. And in the middle of all that, it was also the site of Bumblebee's fateful destruction. However, the hapless Autobot's life was saved by the happy coincidence that G.B. Blackrock was enjoying a pleasure cruise in the area. When the industrialist's boat was the random victim of Cobra fighter-jet fire, the Joes who rescued him happened to bring the Transformers up in conversation, and he quickly volunteered his help. At Fort Lewis, he convinced them that Bumblebee was an ally worth rebuilding, which they did - into Goldbug. G.I. Joe and the Transformers

Generation One cartoon

When Megatron brought the Key to Vector Sigma to Earth, he began experimenting with it in an area identified by Teletraan I as "40 miles west of the Seattle-Tacoma area." The ensuing battle threatened a nearby city, though it's unknown if it was Seattle, Tacoma, or neither. The Key to Vector Sigma, Part 2

Note: In the real world, "40 miles west of the Seattle-Tacoma area" would be the Olympic National Park, which is consistent with the evergreen forest Megatron began cyberforming with the Key. Notably, if that geography holds true, then the city seen in the battle can be neither Seattle nor Tacoma, as they are separated from the Olympic Peninsula by Puget Sound.
