The image problem is solveable. Simon & Schuster and Amazon both have good images we could use. The latter is the "cut-up" type they used for Frontline volume 4. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) 23:25, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
It would seem to me that, unless there is any conflict of reasoning, the dates proposed in the timeline are the official ones. As far as I can tell, there doesn't appear to be any reason why any of the events depicted in the timeline couldn't occur when they do. The only one that legitimately makes no sense to me is the timing of the Battle of Bhekar Ro. Kerrigan would not be the leader of the Kukulkan Brood if the Overmind were still alive. Plus, the book even says she has established herself on Char and the Overmind was destroyed, so unless Blizzard wants to go against what one of their books says, it makes no sense. In their defense, however, the timeline doesn't give exact dates as to when things happen. Signs point to the events happening in the order they are listed, but we cannot assume that. One that makes even more sense to me, however, is when the ghost agents start getting executed. Why would Mengsk wait so long after the Confederacy had been destroyed and annexxed to start fishing out disloyal operatives? Made very little sense, IMO. --Thebrowncloud 02:56, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
Timeline errors Edit
So far there is one to two mistakes in the HD's timeline. The first is that the Shadow of the Xel'Naga entry was listed before Episode III, but this could just be an example of poor listing and meant to show that the [[Battle of Bhekar Ro took place almost immediatly after the death of the Overmind, thus not being an error. The second is saying that the formation of the Kel-Morian Combine occured in 2485, which contradicts I, Mengsk. Since the information from canonical novel is supposed to trump the supporting info from a novel (in this case, HD's timeline), it would be logical to assume that 2485 statement was an error and the Combine was established as early as 2478.

- Quite possible.
- It gets more complicated than that. For starters, there's at least three dates for the Kel-Morian Combine's formation floating around, subject to varying amount of clarity. Second, supporting info doesn't necessarily get trumped by info directly from a novel if it's a lot clearer. Furthermore, the Heaven's Devils timeline is being treated as a separate product.
