Während die Perry-Rhodan-Heftromanserie von den geopolitischen Begebenheiten der realen Welt Mitte des 20.

Weltcon 2011 in Mannheim wird es auch keine Überschneidungen oder Referenzen zwischen den Serien wie zu den Atlan-Serien geben. Perry Rhodan und Perry Rhodan Neo bilden jeweils einen „eigenen Kosmos“.
