Does anyone else find some of the time scales in the Bionicle story odd? I’m more specifically talking about everything that happened in the story after the Toa Mata arrived on the island of Mata Nui. According BS01’s timeline, everything between that point and reformation of Spherus Magna/Teridax’s defeat only happened in the space of a year and a half.
Within this, it suggests that the length of time between the arrival of the Toa Mata and the Matoran’s migration back to Metru Nui was only 3 months. That means that the Matoran only had that small amount of time to get to know the Toa before the conclusion of that part of the story in Mask of Light. I dunno, this just seems really odd to me. In addition to this, it also suggests that the Voya Nui/Mahri Nui part of the story only took one week. Somehow I find this incredibly hard to believe. That means Matoro had literally one week of being a Toa before he died. Then it’s unclear how long 2008 took, because it claims that the story for that year began ‘one year ago’ (one year before Spherus Magna’s reformation), and then claims Teridax takes over the MU six months later.
It just seems weird that the grand scale of time that takes place before the coming of the Toa Mata (100,000 years between the Shattering and this point, 1,000 years between the Great Cataclysm and this point) contradicts so much with this year and a half where so much happens. And even within that year there seems to be inconistencies. I’d actually like to know what the sources are for the timeline’s time stamps, I’m sure they’re somewhere but I forget. The only one I can remember off hand is in the comic where Mata Nui’s body awakens in 2008 and it says that the Toa Mata arrived one year ago from that point.
Anyone else find this all a little bit weird? Am I getting something wrong here?
