So, the question is was Bartik the only survivor from Argon City while everyone in Uprising got derezzed? This is something to think about. And how long did the Uprising last? If this is the case, does it mean Beck is still alive in Argon with Paige?
And with Gorn's 'rictus' smile that keeps her silent, is this a foreshadowing of how Tron/Rinzler does'nt have the ability to talk except a few words and a purr?
Apparently the series takes place after Clu has just about the entire Grid under his tyrannical grip. I doubt something such as this would have happened overnight. Remember, around the time when Flynn had gotten trapped the ISO wars would have been in the beginning stages as well. From what we saw in "Scars" the betrayal also occurred originally in Tron City (I'm assuming, though I could be wrong) and that's quite aways from Argon. It was never actually stated when Tron arrived on the outlands of Argon either (seeing as how that was the last free city on the Grid before Tesler came to lay claim on it in the name of Clu2 within the first episode.)
I know there was a short story about Bartik rescuing Hopper that was released in a magazine shortly before Legacy came out. Don't know much of it only that it's where Bartik was scarred.
In Legacy Tron does actually speak two sentences. At the beginning he identifies Sam as "User". And near the end when he betrays Clu2 and aids Flynn & Co. in their escape he's heard stating "I fight for the Users." Granted, it's not his normal voice. But that could either be due to his helm...or some other type of damage. If Tron was fated with the "rictus smile" I doubt he would have been able to talk at all.
I understand all that, yes. However, the last time Flynn went into the server was in 1989 which is when he disappeared overnight, never to return to his house. I'll bet you that was the night when CLU finally pulled a 'coup' on him and Tron.
Now, Sam did'nt find his father until 20 years later. My point was that did Tron come across Beck a couple years AFTER Flynn's disappearance? Ten years? How much did time dilate between the first Renegade and up til Beck, or rather when Tron becomes Rinzler?
It's clear to me that the first Uprising with Cyrus failed. Then Beck came along and the Uprising seemed to have continued on until Legacy. Therefore, this tells me that CLU was never able to clamp down on it until Sam arrived.
So, we need to think about what happens to the Uprising once Clu re-integrated with Flynn that caused an explosion, a la MCP style. And if an MCP can be revived, so can Flynn/CLU.
Right now, at this point in Uprising, Flynn is probably still young and not growing a beard yet and Sam is still a kid. And Flynn talked about pushing CLU and they got pushed back harder. It sounds like Flynn was part of the Uprising as well.
It's really a question of at what point of the timeline of Uprising are we looking at? If I'm not mistaken, this has to be during 1989 or the early 1990s.
Look at Legacy. No mention of Tesler, Hopper, Paige, Pavel, Able, Dyson (especially him since he was CLU's prominent right hand man), and Beck.
The other big discrepancy I noticed in The Stranger is when Cyrus was imprisoned. Did you guys ever think about how got imprisoned in this manner? Tron could'nt leave his healing chamber that far away to do this as this would've taken extraordinary amounts of energy and effort to lock him away.
I suspect Flynn had a hand in it, BUT if that were the case in the Uprising show, this would hugely contradict Legacy as the 'coup' was the last time Flynn saw Tron alive. Either way, Tron had help locking this guy away.
