"Only if it turns out that reality is actually nothing more than a holographic illusion created by the interplay of subatomic particles on a vast two-dimensional membrane."

This article covers a subject that has been deemed non-canon by either the author or the Back to the Future licensees, and thus should not be taken as a part of the "real" Back to the Future universe.

Timeline 16 was a timeline created when Dr. Emmett Brown arrived in 1986 from 2015.




  • 2035
    • Sunday, September 16
      • When Jennifer and Doc arrive in 2035, Commissioner Wilson has arrested Griff Tannen. She also arrests Marty for his actions at the fli-derb, and tells him that he'd likely get the same sage implant and personality rewrite that Griff Tannen had received.[1]
      • Griff breaks free and attempts to run them all over when Jennifer and Doc arrive in the DeLorean and knock his hovercar out of the way. Marty gets into the DeLorean and Jennifer attempts to outrun the police, who are in pursuit, along with Griff Tannen.[1]
      • Doc informs Marty and Jennifer that every person in 2035 wears a suit outfitted with hover technology protection that acts as a force field and makes them bounce when hit. Knowing that the people will be unharmed, Jennifer speeds full speed into a crowd of people.[1]
      • As the bouncing pedestrians block Griff's view, he does not see the sewage reclamation project ahead, and crashes into it. Jennifer then speeds the DeLorean up to 88 m.p.h and travels from 2035 back to 1986.[1] This creates Timeline 17, which begins at Marty, Jennifer and Doc's entry point in 1986 and timeline 16 fades away.
