Variations of Opening Splash
- Original Sequence
Represents the episodes that are set in this universe. It has blue shading/tinting as the main color.
- Retro Sequence
First used in Peter to represent 1985. It is retro-styled in a popular font of the time and lists the fringe sceinces that were cutting edge at the time. Some of those fields of study have since become mainstream, some were disproved and others forgotten. The musical score was altered as well.
|Personal Computing||Cold Fusion||Cloning|
|Genetic Engineering||Laser Surgery||Stealth Technology|
|In Vitro Fertilization||Virtual Reality|
- Red Sequence
First appeared in episode Over There, Part 1 and used in episodes set primarily in the Parallel Universe. This opening splash is similar to Original splash except red color is used. One fringe science listed in the splash --"Parallel Universes"-- was replaced with the phrase "First People"
- Shifting Sequence
Appeared in Entrada to represent the fact that episode features both universes equally. It is similar to the "original" splash, but shifts colors from blue to red and back several times.
- Gray Sequence
Appeared in episode The Day We Died. It is similar to the Original splash, but is monochrome gray. It features different disciplines, representing that the episode takes place in the future, but also features simple concepts like water and hope.
- Yellow Sequence
First appeared in Neither Here Nor There and used in episodes set in the altered timeline.
- Oppression Sequence
Appeared in Letters Of Transit. It is unique in that none of the traditional glyphs, or extreme sciences, are displayed. It uses a bleak, metallic-blue ice, filter and is nearly monochromatic. Imagery includes a collapsing local universe, firing brain synapes, thousands of individuals facing one direction and concertina wire spanning the horizon. It represents a future in which conformity is expected and concepts like freedom, free will and individuality are 'fringe thinking'.
