Escaping the Cataclysm :Trapped in the past!
Having traveled over four thousand years into the past, Rebecca Evans, her husband Jeffrey, and their companions find themselves stranded by a malfunctioning time machine just days before the greatest catastrophe in the history of the earth: the worldwide Flood! Accompanied by a technologically-enhanced language specialist, a mysterious, wolf-like giant, a hovering utility droid, and several others, Rebecca and Jeffrey fight against the odds to save their relationship, their lives, and their souls.
The travelers are caught in a race against time to fix the machine in order to escape the coming destruction. However, help proves difficult to find in this strange world that is both foreign, yet disturbingly familiar. Desperate, Rebecca and her companions seek out the one man who might be able to help them: the ancient Patriarch of all mankind, Noah.
“We do need to change da cores, but dat won’t get us around da virus,” Akwen stated. “As long as it has da computer locked down, we aren’t goin’ anywhere.”
“But isn’t there some kind of backup system?” Mack offered. “Can’t we somehow bypass the main computer and control the ship from the secondary bridge?”
“‘Secondary bridge?’ C’mon, Mack!” Jerome said in frustration. “We need realistic solutions! So unless you have any ideas that aren’t based on some cheesy TV show, why don’t you just shut up!”
The anger in Jerome’s tone caused each of them to start in surprise. Before they could react, however, Mack’s own pent up fear and anxiety rushed to the surface. “Back off, man! I’m just trying to brainstorm some solutions, which is more than you’re doing!”
Before the situation could dissolve further, Jeffrey stepped in between them. “Stop it, both of you. Look, I know we’re all under a lot of pressure, but there’s no reason to take it out on each other. We need to pull together to get out of this. If anyone has any suggestions, no matter how far-fetched they seem, we need to hear them.”
Disturbed by his own sudden loss of control, Jerome stepped backward and turned away from the group.”
