* Franchise/IndianaJones, it was mentioned, was a member of the armed forces and the OSS during WWII. He was the original pick to go SavingPrivateRyan, but was reassigned immediately when a evil plot by the Nazis to steal a biblical artifact was uncovered.
* [[WordOfGod Steve himself]] says the aliens in ''Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' ([[DuelingMovies his and Tom Cruise's version]], obviously) were from the same area as ET, or at least from as far away. But much nastier.
** The ET race was seen briefly in ''Star Wars: Episode I'', so if we could somehow figure out how to make ET fit in with Indy, Jaws, CE3K, Franchise/JurassicPark or SavingPrivateRyan, we could fit George Lucas, Spielberg's best friend, into it. Get to work!

*** The [[spoiler:interdimensional beings]] of Indy 4 retroactivally changed all of the guns from ET into walkie-talkies because they are a peaceful, knowledge-loving race and wanted people to talk more.

Hence, he is also President James Marshall from ''Air Force One'', Agent Deckard from ''WMG/BladeRunner'', and [[WMG/StarWars Han Solo]]. Thus he was the President of the United States in contemporary times, but becomes a minor bounty hunter living in a dilapidated hulk of a building in the future. What happened? Read on to find out

The key to this theory is, not surprisingly, IndianaJones, because he is... IndianaJones.

* The Indy movie that came out between ''Last Crusade'' and ''Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'' was never shown. It and... [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} the]] [[{{Freakazoid}} related]] [[WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain characters]] were locked away by Warner Studios sometime in the late '90s and were never heard from again. Rumor has it that they are inside the WB Studio's Water Tower. If it had been made, it would've been the IndianaJones equivalent of Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit.

Much more likely, the ''Replicants'' are descended from the ''Cylons''. They wipe out the Galactica--or they believe they have--and feel sorry afterwards. Then they arrive at Earth, find out it's the fictional 21st Century, and what do they do? Make backdoor deals with the Tyrell Corporation: sell them their elite bioengineering skills in exchange for an insidious, more peaceful megacorp-driven thrust to Main/TakeOverTheWorld. They'll figure out that VichyEarth was not the good idea it seemed at the time on New Caprica and establish a ''PinkyAndTheBrain''-style benevolent dictatorship. Harrison Ford's character is a victim of their EvilPlan to soften public opinion towards Main/{{Artificial Human}}s.

* Time is cyclical-- [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined "This has all happened before, and it will all happen again".]] Hence, the far future ''is'' "a long time ago".

* ''{{Amistad}}'' and ''SchindlersList'' are both historic events (to varying degrees of accuracy). The main difference here is that in the Spielbergverse they are not BasedOnATrueStory or VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory, but happened EXACTLY as they are portrayed in the movies.
* ''TheLandBeforeTime'' only has an indirect connection, having been merely produced by Spielberg: several of the ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' dinos are cloned from the main characters.

Thousands of years later, with humanity scattered to other planets, a civil war is raging between a tyrannical pangalactic empire and an organized rebellion. A descendant of Elliot's and Mutt's is talked out of joined the imperial space fleet [[StarWars by a certain moisture farmer from a distant desert planet]].

*** Clearly, when When President Marshall tried to fight whatever it was that turned the Film/BladeRunner world into a dystopia, he got in over his head. Political coups are terrible things.



*** Didn't Star Wars take place quite some time ago?
**** Time is circular. There is a big crunch in the future, followed by a new big bang, reigniting everything all over again. Since Indy is immortal, he survives this.
****** Wait. So Indy is also ''Galactus''?



** Meaning Raiden did not, in fact, kill him.
*** Precisely! The Indiana Jones soon to feature in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' is, in fact, a clone who suffered extremely fast ageing.
** Of course, since Han Solo lived ''a long time ago'', clearly a Time Lord gave him a lift to the past.
* Alternative [[SeriousBusiness non-retarded]] theory: Han Solo is a Time Lord and the Millenium Falcon is heavily modified TARDIS. He either regenerated into Indy, or travels forward in time and takes on the identity of Indiana Jones.

** Why would the Millennium Falcon be a ''heavily modified'' TARDIS?
*** It's smaller on the inside.
*** His TARDIS is not a Type-40 with a ShapeshifterModeLock Chameleon Circuit

* [[WordOfGod Steve himself]] says the aliens in WarOfTheWorlds ([[Main/DuelingMovies his and Tom Cruise's version]], obviously) were from the same area as ET, or at least from as far away. But much nastier.
