* Or that's just another 1984-esque scenario: There is no gas contamination, just a totalitarian government brainwashing their population. Also, there is no The Fall, that's just some kind of an underground rollercoaster.

* Actually, the “gravity reversal” when approaching the core makes absolutely no sense if there is no artificial gravity involved. If it were genuinely in a free fall and using its own momentum to pass the core (theoretically possible, if we ignore the details of the tunnel), then the following would happen during each trip: (1) a strong short blow from above, (2) no gravity whatsoever during the whole trip (free fall, remember?), (3) a strong short blow from below. If there is gravity during the trip (except when passing the core) that either means it is not free fall (i.e. it is powered through another energy source apart from gravity) or there is some kind of artificial gravity.

''Total Recall'' is actually an Alternate History of StarControl. There are two changes. First, the Small War of 2015 became a large war. Rather than only a dozen or so nuclear weapons being detonated, instead, World War III broke out. Factions and alliances were formed, such that a billion people died in the first year of the war. The conflict eventually encompassed every nation in the world (even Switzerland!) except for the United Kingdom and Australia, who remained fiercely neutral. The conflict ended around 2025, but left most of the world uninhabited. Second, due to better luck in previous wars of enslavement, the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za are able to get to our sector of space about 30 years earlier, and make contact with Humans before the Chenjesu do. In no position to offer even the slightest resistance, and of no use to the Ur-Quan as thralls, the Humans quickly surrender without any resistance. The Ur-Quan still destroyed the Pyramids though, for reasons no Human can explain. The Ur-Quan erect a slave shied around Earth, preventing humans from ever reaching Earth's orbit again. Therefore, when ''Total Recall'' starts, there are no satellites, no space colonies, no moon or Mars colonies, and in fact, if anyone ever tried to lift into space, their craft would disintegrate before they ever exited the Stratosphere.

** There's also a mention of warfare in Venezuela, which shouldn't have any inhabitants to go to war with in Quaid's Verse.

[[WMG: TotalRecall1990 and this movie are RecursiveCanon]]
A line in this movie tells us that some guy went to Rekall to "be the king of Mars" and ended up lobotomized. It's not a stretch to infer that he experienced the events of TotalRecall1990, which, we can then assume, ended with a FadeToWhite because he was actually lobotomized at the end. They both referred to themselves as "Douglas Quaid" and remember a relation with a woman named "Melina" because those names are just standard elements of the program, implanted into them as false memories.

Pretty self-explanatory. The gas was mutagenic as well as mostly fatal, meaning there's all manner of weird men, mutans, manamals, and plants outside the city and colony.

* While that would give us a hilarious explanation for Sam Worthington's accent I do recall most of the people in Avatar as being American and the states were kind of wasted by chemical warfare in this movie.
* Avatar also mentioned an Earth population of 10 billion. Hard to believe on a fully habitable Earth, impossible on the one shown here.
