Forgive me if there is already a thread like this already, but I have never seen one.
While watching the Stars arc on Hulu a thought that I have sometimes pondered came to mind.
Of course in the world of Sailor Moon seasons, any plot element pertaining to one arc or another doesn't (normally) bleed over from one season to the next. Real life however isn't so pretty. Most discussion in this thread would be speculative, and could be relating to any plot elements of BSSM.

For example; when during the Sailor Moon timeline do you suspect the came to Earth Three Lights rose to fame? Due to Ami's fan club membership being so far ahead of the other girls, I would have to assume the Three Lights had been a famous musical group for some time before we heard about them in Stars. If I had to guess I'd say they probably came into the limelight at some point during S or Supers, but probably not too much before then. Who knows though? It's kind of fun to think about the Three Lights being a famous group before Usagi even awakens as Sailor Moon.

Another interesting one to think about is when in Sailor Moon's timeline Uranus and Neptune awoke. Has it ever been said or implied whether it was before or after the other girls? I'd always thought after, but I'm not sure.

I hope everyone has fun with this thread. I hope I'm not the only one who finds these kinds of timeline speculation discussions interesting.

None of that is ever explained, but when we add real life data we can make a few educated guesses (and notice that Haruka and Michiru are effectively shameless criminals).

Three Lights: they most likely arrived on Earth rather early, end of season 1/start of season 2 early, and had to spend quite some time adapting themselves to Earth customs and creating their fake identities. But the most interesting part is the implication that GALAXIA WAS ALREADY THERE, having already done the same and shoring up the money to create Ginga TV. And that means that if any of the previous villains ever won, they would have to deal with HER...


When Michiru and Haruka Awakened (this is long)
[spoiler=]First of all, we must keep in mind that Michiru was 16 when the Guardians were 15, and about seven months older than Minako (the oldest of the lot by a few months).
Second, the Outers already had some combat experience when they first showed up.
Third, Japanese law forbids the driving of cars to anyone under 18, doesn't matter if they have a foreign licence.
Fourth, we also know that Haruka was already in high school when she first met Michiru, with one of her friends being in her senior year in the S season.
Finally, Michiru was already famous when she encountered Haruka, while Haruka wasn't (this is important for the ease of forging documents).
Point 3 and 4 combined indicate that Haruka was actually 18 or 19 during the series, and had got her licence very recently. This is compounded by point 5, as Michiru, being famous, would have had trouble passing herself as a different age but Haruka would have had no such problem.
Adding point 2 to this, we get they have to have Awakened at least a few months before the S season.
Finally, Michiru age: when she first met Haruka she was likely 14, and already an experienced soldier.
Combining all this, we find out that Sailor Neptune Awakened BEFORE ARTEMIS MET MINAKO, possibly even a year or more, and that Sailor Uranus was activated by her around the same time of Artemis meeting Minako.[/spoiler]

Bump!
Okay, I'm hoping this thread might gain some more traction since many of us are at home a lot more! (Also I should have done a better job of keeping it alive.)

When does anyone suppose Galaxia may have actually begun her invasion of the galaxy itself? Considering how large the galaxy is, I would have to imagine it began centuries before the events of season one, possibly even before the Silver Millennium fell! In which case it's a bit odd Pluto barely mentions light disappearing in 182, but I digress!

Please share your theories on this, or any other Sailor Moon timeline theories/speculations you might have!

I always want to know how did Michriu awake power in dreams.

Can't really speak to the anime, but in the manga, Princess Kakyu mentions seeing Serenity and Endymion's coronation from the end of the Dream arc. That means Galaxia didn't attack the Kinmoku System until after that, and thus the Starlights didn't come to Earth and pose as an idol group until later still, meaning there must be quite a time gap between the end of Dream and the beginning of Stars (which would also accommodate Mamoru's applying and getting accepted to Harvard). That or the Three Lights were a literal overnight sensation.

I haven't read the manga in it's entirety for some time. That's pretty crazy! And the coronation was in the 20th century? Not the Silver Millennium?
