In a last ditch effort to reclaim the advantage, Adolf Hitler, commissioned a Top Secret project code named Quick Sliver.By using what the Nazis had learned from the American experiments with atomic energy, Hitler had successfully opened a doorway through time. However the one man who would know how to close the Porthole escaped through the same gate he had created.Today is Aug 16, 1985, and the rip in time that the Nazis created is still opened. The lab has been abandoned and Progress has forgotten about the past. Yet the past always has a way of catching up to us.
