Timeline of Events
2018 After a bloody mutiny by a Nexus 6 combat team in an Off-world colony, replicants are declared illegal on Earth-under penalty of death.

2019 A prototype replicant, Rachael, and Officer Rick Deckard, a Blade Runner, escape Los Angeles together.

2020 After the death of founder Eldon Tyrell, the Tyrell Corporation rushes a new line of Nexus 8 replicants onto market for use Off-world. Unlike previous Nexus models, built with four-year lifespans, the Nexus 8s have open-ended lifespans, as well as ocular implants for easy identification.

2022 An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) of unknown origin detonates somewhere in the West Coast. Cities shut down for weeks. Electronic data is corrupted or destroyed over most of the United States. Finance and trade markets crash worldwide. Food supplies become dire. Theories spread as to the cause of the Blackout; none are proven. The most popular ones blame replicants.

2023 The governing authorities legislate an indefinite "prohibition" on replicant production. Nexus 6 models are now all decommissioned due to their programmed 4-year lifespans. Surviving Nexus 8 models are to be retired. Those that can, go into hiding.

2025 Idealistic scientist Niander Wallace pioneers advancements in genetically modified food and shares his patents for free, marking an end to a global crisis. His company, Wallace Corporation, E&C, expands across the globe-and into the Offworld colonies.

2028 Wallace acquires the remains of the bankrupt Tyrell Corporation.

2030 Wallace upgrades genetic engineering to produce a new model of replicants, biorobotic beings that are more compliant and obedient than their predecessors.

2036 Prohibition is repealed. Wallace reintroduces a new line of "perfected" replicants: The Nexus 9.

2040 The LAPD commits resources to re-establish its Blade Runner unit, tasked with locating illegal replicants...and retiring them.
