FlingALightIntoTheFuture is the trope for any inversion with the past sending an ominous message into the future. Also see ConquerorFromTheFuture if the "message" is someone from the future coming back to the past to take it over.

** An example from the [[AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho Big Finish]] audioplay ''Night of the Whisper'', where the Ninth Doctor and Rose are trying to chase down the titular vigilante across New Vegas. As the Doctor is trying to fix the hoverbike they have "borrowed", Rose directs his attention to a holographic billboard that suddenly shows a man wearing a tweed suit and a bowtie holding a piece of paper that mentions the Doctor. The holo-Eleven then tells "Ears" (as he refers to Nine) that he has to keep a cop named James [=McNeil=] alive, as he's supposed to become the future mayor of New Vegas and clean up the town. When Rose asks who that man is, the Doctor just brushes it off (she doesn't know about regenerations yet).

* The 2000 episode "[[Recap/StargateSG1S4E162010 2010]]" of ''Series/StargateSG1'' is interesting in that the whole episode builds up to sending the note, which is promptly understood and obeyed. It takes place in a seemingly idyllic future where allies the SGC met were able to single-handedly win the war with the Goa'uld, only for SG-1 to learn they secretly have made mankind sterile and plan to subjugate the world, leading SG-1 to sacrifice themselves to send a note to the past warning the SGC against going to the planet where they met the allies. Hammond obeys the note, but a year later, in "[[Recap/StargateSG1S5E102001 2001]]", the SGC unknowingly makes contact with those same aliens on a neighboring planet. Thankfully, they do notice that it's near the "forbidden" one and decide to investigate a bit.
