Storyline

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 the cavern collapses during an earthquake and Dylan doesn't recover until the year 2133. During the 154 years he had slept, war has broken out and the world's scientists rebelled against the war-loving military and developed a society known as the Pax, whose goal is to keep the spirit of mankind alive. However there are also the mutant Tyranians who plan to be Nazi-like rulers of the slowly recovering world. Dylan is tricked by the Tyranians who plan to use his knowledge of the past to rebuild their nuclear generator and therefore make their plans complete. 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>

Gene Roddenberry, a man way ahead of his time, so what else is new?! He will certainly be missed. A man frozen from the past is brought back to life in the future.

From the underground subways to mans own destruction from the past, its as if the world has started over again, but with two different types of people, the ones who live above the ground, and the others, who live below the earth and are very barbaric.

This movie makes one wonder if this can really happen. I say, quite possible. This movie is not yet available for purchase, but I was lucky and smart enough to tape it years ago from TV.

"Planet Earth" follows this movie as John Saxon stars in it. This one is available for sale and would highly recommend it as well.
