Dylan Hunt, a scientist, puts himself into suspended animation in a NASA cavern in 1979 to establish if he could be brought back to life in a couple of days to research into extending the process to astronauts.

However there are also the mutant Tyranians who plan to be Nazi-like rulers of the slowly recovering world.

Can the Pax and Dylan stop them or will the man from the past destroy the future?... Written by Lee Horton <Leeh@tcp.co.uk>
