Two researchers in the Congo mysteriously disappear. One is found on the sparsely populated Navajo Reservation brutally attacked, and dies of severe bacterial infection. The other, Kate Rogers, is presumed lost. Ed Tevis, lead scientist tells James Larkin he thinks Kate was swept back to an ancient world through a time vortex created by Larkins ITRC quantum markers. Larkin decides not to report the death and insists on sending a party back to the Congo to try and rescue Rogers, not from the goodness of his heart, but to patent time travel and make millions. Seth Conner, a prominent paleontologist is contacted and is asked to travel back in time to try to rescue Kate, but Connor feels skeptical of the time continuum theory. He decides to get involved after he is offered a large sum of money for his services. Seth Connor knows if he is to succeed he must find the time vortex and maybe find Kate alive. Fail and all is lost. Even if he survives, he could get stranded in a world where dinosaurs live and breathe.
