?
Seems complicated doesn't it? Here's a simpler explanation. Story #1 is the DragonBall story the way it unfolded and the way you saw it. Story #2 is the one where Trunks comes from the future. It is in this story where Future Trunks defeats Androids 17 and 18 and Cell. If Cell dies in Story #2 though, what future did he come from to appear in the main story? It is because there exists an alternate future where Cell uses Trunks time machine to go back in time. That happens in Story #3. When Cell is born in that story, Android 17 and 18 no longer exist which is why he must go back in time to become perfect. So what happened to the two androids? Trunks brought their plans and their emergengy self destruct instructions with him to use against them in his era. This is why, in another story, Trunks is absent during the Cell game. That story is Story #4. All these alternate futures may leave some unanswered questions like why didn't Buu resurrect in Story #2 or #3? The answer is actually simple. The people who had enough energy to free him (either Goku, Vegeta or Gohan) were dead and nobody else on Earth had the kind of power needed to free Buu.
