Storyline

Tanner Brooks is a professional athlete who has one last chance at winning the championship. The futuristic game involves fighting your opponent in an enclosed ring while evading laser fire. Brooks is getting older now and winning matches is getting more and more difficult. He's approached by a scientist, Michael Chen, who has developed a way to vastly improve a person speed and reflexes. Tanner has great success in the tournament but as he reaches the championship match, side effects from the treatment begin to take hold. Chen refuses any further treatments so Tanner breaks into the lab to treat himself. The results are of quantum proportions. Written by garykmcd
