Martin rebuilds his CCTBS - cathode-ray centrifugal time breakascope - convinced that if he transports himself to just before the time he crashed, he can fix the problem and fly back to Mars. Det. Brennan inadvertently flips the switch for the delay function, sending Tim and Martin back in time. Instead of 1215 Merry Old England where they were sent last time, they are sent to 1849 St. Louis.
