    The Star Trek series have used the multiple timelines before. It's the most fun, although a fixed timeline done right is really amazing.

  2. This is no time to talk about time! We don't have the time!

  3. It seems like time travel could change the future if one is not careful, like Back to the Future or The Butterfly Effect. I love time travel movies of any kind.


  4. I'll admit...they all confuse me a little bit, but this graphic was so helpul. Thanks!

  5. From what I've heard, it's a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey wimey stuff.
