Storyline

Logan, Jessica and Rem find something in some ruins. They find a rabbit in it and after they take it out, it disappears. The man who sent it goes back with it. When he appears he tells them it's a teleportation device. But in actuality it's a time machine, he came from the past to find out what was the cause of the nuclear holocaust. He tells them he's looking for Sanctuary so he joins them. But what they find is not the Sanctuary they seek and the man discovers that the inhabitants have digressed. He tries to tell them what they are there for but they don't believe him. They restrain him and he pleads with Logan and the others to help him but it means that they would cease to exist as they are because without the holocaust certain things would not have happened like the City of Domes.

While a good episode, it is a well worn plot.
14 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was surprised to learn that David Gerrold was the author of this episode and question why he wrote under a pseudonym. It could be that his original script was so altered to be not up to his standards. This is typical of writers who see their work altered to fit producer's or studio's standards. Gerrold is a better author than this story indicates. Just watch Star Trek's "The Trouble with Tribbles."

The idea, can you change history, was hardly a new idea when this episode was shown. The Twilight Zone, Start Trek, One Step Beyond, all featured stories with the idea that time travel would not solve all of humanity's ills. Later, Dean Gregorais would use a Philip K. Dick story with this theme to write "Paycheck" staring Ben Affleck.

While the basic story is good, and the actors do the best with what they are given, the plot stereotypes are legion. It is cheaper to produce a science fiction show this way, but not necessary.
