* The original ''Star-Lord'' stories took place in the early 90's (the comics themselves began publication in 1976), but this was {{retcon}}ned to the present when the character entered the mainstream Franchise/MarvelUniverse during ''Comicbook/{{Annihilation}}''. Star-Lord was later given a revised origin in ''GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' that removed all of these aspects.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Halo|CombatEvolved}}''; though the game takes place in 2552 and [[Franchise/{{Halo}} the overall series]] takes place in the 26th century, most of the technology is remarkably close to present day, with a few exceptions, such as anti-gravity warships, holographic [=AIs=], portable railguns and powered battle armor. This was lampshaded by the creators, who jokingly realize that for 500 plus years of innovation, combat will have advanced way beyond what Halo depicts. Something along the lines of "combat just 250 years from now will be, I drink something, and everyone else on the battlefield dies.

* The framing story to ''Series/QuantumLeap'', set in the far-off world of 1997.
** Guess Beckett altered history more than Al or Ziggy expected him to...
** This is most likely because Bellisario wanted to keep the time-travelling within Sam's lifetime, but also within the audience's past, so the show's "present" couldn't be too far in the future.
** The Quantum Leap Project is a black project, so it could still take/have taken place.

1999. From what little we see of the future during the series, cars are more streamlined and can go faster, electric cars have their own lanes, some cars have holographic displays and tracking devices, prostitution is legal, and women wear clothing that lights up. But firearms, military uniforms, and congressional committees haven't changed. Guess Beckett altered history more than Al or Ziggy expected him to...
