Ok this is a long shot, but do any of you rememer Central Dome Fire Swirl? At the end you had to save someone named Dr. D.

Now take a look at the PSU trailer. Dr. Dawson. Ya I know this is a stretch.

The guy DOES look old. And PSU DOES take place after PSO.

Clever, you are. *toss a cookie*

No, its takes a 1000 years before PSO right?

I don't think its even in the PSO timeline.... bu tthen again ,unless you want to go on trying to link PSO's plot holes and such to the PS series of old and the nlink em to PSU be my quest, but I think it has nothing to do with PSO's universe at all... and wasn't dr.d a fonewman?

The thing is, Kazuma, is that PSO is in the same timeline of the old PS games
In other words, yes, PSU is after and in the same time line as PSO; we just don't know how much after it is (or if they'll even place it at the same time as any of the previous games, only in a diferent solar system, say like PS3 which happens 1000 years after PSO itself according to the original Japanese PS timeline).

But, back to what Johnathan said, it'd be interesting if Dawson and D are the same, it'd mean PSU is only something like 50 years after PSO (unlikely, but it'd be interesting).

Well Pioneer 2 had enough reason to leave.

Phantasy Star Online episode III had multiple endings remember, so it falls into the same category that Phantasy Star 3 did.

Or maybe the new Dr. Dawson is the son of the old one...

or his son's son...

or his son's son's son...


Of course this is dependant on exactly how long the 2 games are seperated.

Or maybe it's just there to make fans go like "Oh is it him?!" lol

A more likely connection is between the logo of AMF and the PSO seal.

King Rappy noticed the same thing I noticed.
It's the Pioneer 2 logo, with AMF slapped in the middle of it; it's also a familiar PS logo, so it may just be a big coincidence.

Of course, if we consider that the AMF ship seems to be an updated version of the Pioneer 2 ship structure, maybe it's not that unintentional afterall; but then again, the whole PS universe (not the game, the series universe I mean) uses mostly the same technology, so having a ship with a similar structure of the Pioneer 2 wouldn't be that difficult.

Yes and the PSO Karen and PSU Karen are the same aswell.
