Fictional references

  • The cartoon series The Jetsons, was originally set in 2062. This is because the series first aired in 1962, and the show was a prediction of what life would be like a hundred years in the future. Jetsons: The Movie(1990) states that The Jetsons is set "Late in the 21st century", so it seems this date has been abandoned. Note that no precise date has ever been stated in any episode.
  • 2063 - In Star Trek, Zefram Cochrane makes the first human warp flight. This attracts the Vulcans and they make first contact with humans.
  • 2069 - In Star Trek, the Klingon High Council is formed, eliminating the position of Emperor until 2369.
