"In which case, why aren't we speaking German right now?"
"Because we're in the temporal zone."
—Jefferson Jackson and Ray Palmer[src]

The temporal zone is a space between time, acting as a limbo in between it. It is commonly used by non-speedsters to travel through time using a timeship.

"Time quakes" occur when a massive modification to history has occurred (an "aberration"). People travelling inside the temporal zone, such as the Legends, are shielded from changes to the timeline.


After escaping from Chronos in 1975, Rip Hunter parked the Waverider within the temporal zone in order to remain undetected and perform repairs on the ship.[1].
