Dark Angel series timeline & background informations (Edited to add some informations I got from kimiM. A big THANK YOU to her!)



Created by the events in the series and the informations provided by the official books to the series:

Dark Angel: Before the Dawn (2002), Dark Angel: Skin Game (2003) & Dark Angel: After the Dark (2003) written by Max Allan Collins

Dark Angel: The Eyes Only Dossier (2003) written by D.A. Stern

I highly recommend every fan of Dark Angel to read the books! I consider them as secondary series canon since they are based on the ideas the producers had for season 3, which we sadly didn’t get.




Logan Cale was born on November 11, 1988



Max was born



May 17th: FOX ends the second season of Dark Angel promising a third season & then cuts it, replacing it with Firefly (which only lasted for one season)



May 17th: DA fans rally for the first Barcode Day



February: Jack's murder triggers an escape attempt & Max (9 years old) escaped Manticore &
starts to live with the Barrets (Lucy)

June 1st, 12:05pm: Terrorists detonate an electromagnetic pulse that turns the US into a third world country overnight while Logan was on his uncle’s yacht with a lady friend (Daphne?)

Max leaves the Barrets short after the pulse

Max (10 years old) lives in Los Angeles Griffith Park



July: TPFP opens again



a severe Earthquake hits LA



Max (13 years old) moves out of Griffith Park and lives with Moody and the Chinese Clan in the CHINESE THEATRE in Hollywood



Logan must have gotten his (masters?) degree from Yale around that time at the latest

June: Logan Works for The Pacific Free Press, Nathan Herrero is still active

Logan’s email-addresses:



Asha's mother Margaret Curran is missing

Divorces from Valerie?

October: Logan still works for TPFP,



April: Logan still works for TPFP, Nathan Herrero disappears,

Logan creates Eyes Only



Logan works with Max's brother Seth?



The series starts:

Max (19 years old) leaves Los Angeles and travels to Seattle to search for Seth. Meets Original Cindy in EUREKA, CALIFORNIA,

Max first crosses paths with Logan, joins the Informant Net & learns that 11 of her siblings escaped as well

 Alec has his Berrisford mission and Rachel Berrisford falls into a coma. Rachel Berrisford’s father said 2021 in the episode 211: “She's been dying for two years."

Episode 108 Cold Comfort: Herbal wants to take a personal day next Friday because it's the 75th anniversary of the great Bob Marley’s birth (6 February 1945) & he’d like to attend the memorial concert they’re having out there in Portland for him.

Episode 114:

Max says "Eleven years ago tonight we escaped from Manticore" (escape was in February 2009)

> So this episode is set in February 2020.

Logan says "I’ve spent the last six months trying to dig up everything I could about Manticore"

> We know Max and Logan met around August 2019.

February 25th: Penny/Tinga disappears (written on the milk box episode 1.19)

Episode 120 (121 follows):

It's Max and Logan anniversary 

> We are in August 2020

Max & three siblings attempt to destroy Manticore & Max is recaptured

3 months later: Max escapes & helps broadcast the location of Manticore's new base then returns to free all the soldiers at the base

Episode 202 (day(s) after 201):

Normal says "faking your own death for a three-month sabbatical"

> We are then in November 2020



October 21st: Death of Rachel Berrisford (written on the gravestone episode 2.11)

Episode 219:

Freaks escape in November 2020 + 7 month

Senator says "Since the transgenics escaped into our streets seven months ago"

> We know that between 201 and 219 we got more or less 7 months.

> We know now that this episode is set more or less in May or June 2021

About seven months are passing between 2.01 “Designate This” & 2.21 “Freak Nation” (extrapolated from Gem’s pregnancy, which is a result of Manticore’s breeding programme)

Transgenics & transhumans set up shop in Terminal City & rescue
their comrades out from under the noses of cops & Feds



Please add the things I missed in the comment section below!

How old was Logan as his parents died? 

I have read somewhere that someone created a floor plan of Logan’s penthouse. Is this plan still online available and where can I find it?
