    Fascism has been renamed "Supremacism," and there are plans to add a "Brother-Ideology" called "Unityism" or "Unionism" or something like that. But I think Revivalism is a good name too.

    And I think Mosley was only the War Minister, while Churchill was the Prime Minister.

    Barry Goldwater would be the First Republican in office since Blaine.
    Assassinated by an African American. With an investigation they found out who it was. He would be arrested eight months
    after his assassination. Later more evidence
    would be found that Cassius did in deed do it.

    (Thanks to @Joshua Ben Ari.)

    Title of Star Trek: The Original Series. (TOS.)

    Set in the 23th century, the series follows the USS Yorktown of the Galactic Union with Jack Lord as Captain Kirk, Sidney Poitier as Commander Spock, and Malachi Throne as Uhura, chief medical officer.

    One of the TOS most controversial episodes was Patterns of Force, when the Yorktown discoverers an Union historian has transform an planet heavily base off of Jake Featherston's Confederacy, as well as Action Française France and Silver Shirts Britain. Kirk and his staff heroically help an local rebel cell and activists to overthrown the Government while the dictator makes an final escape.

    Thank you. I was going to make Nichelle Nichols the Doc, but @Joshua Ben Ari said her role as comms. officer works perfectly - the first voice that any alien race or ship hears is the voice of a Black woman.

    He also gave me the idea of Sidney Poitier as Spock.

    When the producers of TNG were looking at who to play Picard, they looked at Poitier and even Yaphet Kotto (Parker from Alien). So it made sense to push equality in a very real and in-your-face way.

    Any chance that the Wright brothers had cooperated with Otto Lilienthal in designing the first airplanes?

    The Wright Brothers were big fans of Lilienthal and stated on several occasions that he was the man who taught them how to fly (referring to his written works on his experiments with gliding and designing gliders). The Wright Brothers took up gliding and designed gliders influenced by Lienthal's work, if Lienthal's death is butterflied in TL-191, its possible the Wright Brothers might have traveled to Germany to study or just to pay their respects.
    Anything would be possible.

    Messerschmitt 262 turbo-engined fighter of the Luftstreitskrafte. The Me262 was the first turbo-engined warplane to enter regular service, being employed by the German Empire against British bombing raids during the last stages of the Second Great War. Lacking turbos of their own, British bombers - already spread thin as the tide of war turned against Britain - suffered heavy casualties against 262s. This particular model was flown by air ace Adolf Ritter von Galland, and still flies to this day.

    Georg Friedrich Ferdinand, Prinz von Preußen, son of current Kaiser Louis Ferdinand II and heir to the German Empire. Popular with the youth of Germany, the Prince nevertheless caused a minor amount of consternation among more conservative Junkers with his marriage to Princess Sophie Johanna Maria of Isenburg, a Catholic.

    Berlin, capital of the German Empire. Though battered by Entente bombing raids during the Second Great War, Berlin rebuilt quickly after the end of the war.

    Despite economic difficulties after the war, and the relinquishing of a number of colonial territories, Germany remains the primary military and economic power of Europe, and has effectively united the Continent behind it, and Berlin is the beating heart of Germany's empire.

    Screenshots form the Twilight Zone episode He's Alive. The episode tells the story of a Neo-Confederate trying to incite a revolution in the former Confederacy, with the ghost of Jake Featherston, at first becoming his mentor and then his master. This episode was a pet project of Second Great War veteran, Rod Serling, who wanted to write a story about how the evil represented by Featherston didn't end with his death.

    Very nice. This was actually one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes, and for the exact same reason that you posted. I also liked where the Neo-Nazi was living with a German survivor from WWII, who gave us the POV of how the people never really believed that the crazies would take power until it was too late.

    The Future of Russian America in TL-191

    After the end of the Second Great War in 1944, the Russian colony of "Russian America" faced an uncertain future. Most of the Russian Far East was now under Japanese control and the colony was cut off from Petrograd. The population was mostly made up of indigenous people and Russian colonists. The latter was generally divided into two groups: Exiled Communists and Loyalists to the Romanov family. Despite the mutual hatred both groups had for each other, they had one common enemy: the Japanese Empire.

    After the Russian Empire dissolved and transformed into the Russian Republic, the Imperial family, loyal government agents, and Russian refugees from the Second Great War poured into Russian America. In 1945, the "State of Alaska" was proclaimed under the control of the Romanov family, much to the chargin of the Russians who were Socialists and Communists. To avoid a civil war, the leader of Alaska severely limited the role of the Czar and sought support from the USA, adopting an Anti-Japanese policy and a mutual cooperation between their nations. The USA initially had plans to eventually conquer Russian America, but the government decided that it was easier to have an ally than to spend more valuable resources. During the Second Great Game/Frozen Conflict/Triple Tension, Alaska was vital for intelligence operations.

    After the collapse of the Japanese Empire, the Alaskan government and Russian government were able to meet together for the first time and celebrate their common heritage while being committed to peace on Earth. However, without a common enemy, there was concern if Socialists and Communists would begin to fight against Loyalists and Pure Democracy-lovers just as the 20th Century was almost over...

    Note:
    1) The term "Frozen Conflict" has a slightly different meaning in TL-191; it's basically a synonym for "Cold War"
    2) The flag is a combination the Flag of the Russian American Company and the Romanov-Russian Flag upside down.

    Captain Race Cunningham, main protagonist of the 1960's cult classic Star Voyage a joint German-American production. Originally created by American writer and producer Michelle "Mitch" Roddenberry was the Science Adventure setting of it's time. Following Race Cunningham and the crew of the Phoenix as they explore strange new worlds and defend the outer colonies of the Interstellar Alliance against its various enemies. Roddenberry termed it as a classic western in space, drawing heavily from German Expressionism and such films as metropolis, alongside classic American Planetary Romance's and pulp science fiction.

    The Starmen mysterious and enigmatic beings of pure light, the franchises greatest foes of unkown origin. Much of their motivations and origins would remain a mystery even into the 90's series Star Voyages: the Second Generation. Amongst the series other enemies included the Terra Novan's Eugenically breed supermen who broke away from Earth during the founding days of the Alliance, forging their own empire amongst the stars. Obviously based off of the Confederacy and Anglo-French the Terra Novan's possessed a Japanese-Indian-Arabic inspired culture, maintaining a strict caste system and code of honor, with the majority of the actors who portrayed them being from East Asia and latin America.

While General Khan only had a single episode in the original series, managed to distinguish himself as a man of culture and refinement, alongside being a father to his men and being an overall charismatic and inspiring leader, making his final appearance in Star Voyage: Khan's Vengeance.
