Doug and Tony are transported to the Grand Canyon, Arizona, in 1547. Meanwhile, the saboteur Raul Nimon kills Dr. Alfred Stiles and plants a nuclear bomb with a timing device in the phase synchronizer console; however, the security seals all the exit and Nimon escapes through the time tunnel that is fixed in Doug and Tony. General Kirk orders the scientists to capture Nimon and discover where the bomb is hidden. However the tunnel is out of control and sends the trio to one million years in the future in a society organized like a beehive. However Nimon had arrived ten years before and is building a time machine trying to return to the present days. When the time tunnel personnel tries to transfer the trio to another time, they accidentally brings the soldier Vokar and the worker Zee together to one million years BC. The scientists try to force Nimon to tell where the nuclear device was planted in the last chance to save his friends and themselves. Written by

When the travelers arrive in the past, Dr. Swain reports their location in time as 1,000,000 years BCE, in the "Pliocene period". There was a Pliocene epoch, but it was from 5.332 million to 2.588 million years before present, considerably earlier than their supposed location. While there is fossil evidence for very large insects and arthropods in the Carboniferous period, giant bees are not part of the fossil record; the largest known relative of bees is a winged ant that could reach a length of 2.5" and lived about 50 million years ago. The Pliocene epoch was part of the age of mammals, and well-known fauna of the time included elephants, armadillos and saber-tooth cats. See more
