A Millennium Later
On the other hand, Millennium, like any contemporary fiction, is set in a timeline that is identical with ours except for the existence of the characters and the occurence of the events that are described in the Trilogy. Thus, whatever is going to happen in the Millennium timeline is what is going to happen in our timeline. We do not know what that is but we need not envisage a different future for Millennium as I was doing when I began to write this post. This is a consequence of the genre. Although I am intrigued by ways of fitting different genres into a single fictional tapestry, there is no need to project a science fictional future for Millennium.
