100 Million BC

Synopsis: A scientist from the failed Philadelphia Experiment leads a team of Navy SEALs back in time to the Cretaceous Period to rescue the first team he sent back during the 1940s. Things go wildly awry though, when on his return he accidentally brings a giant, man-eating dinosaur back through the portal and into modern-day, downtown Los Angeles.

Meet you at the bottom.

Wait. This isn't a race,

we're looking for caves.

Land Sat images are

consistent with Speliogenesis...

...yea... yea...

consistent with Spellio Jellio

I'm not kidding.

I could have been a lawyer. Woooohooo.

Me gusta tus grandes ca.

Well at least your Spanish

is getting better.


You okay?

I think so...

it's my harness it feels, loose...

Oh sh*t Michelle!

Michelle, you okay?


Anything broken?

No. I'm okay.

Hold on, I'm coming to get you!

What... Oh my god!

This is amazing

Yea, then you're going to want to see this.

At ease.

Welcome to Los Angeles, gentlemen,

and the Western home of Naval Research.

Stow your gear, use the head,

and we'll muster in the Ready Room at 1500.


Seal Team. Dismissed!

Lieutenant. You did good work in Angola.

Thank you sir. What's this all about, sir?

Well, you're here because of

the delicate nature ofthis mission.

That, and because you're the best search

and rescue team we've got.

Pardon me sir, but, search and rescue?

Here, sir?

Fifteen hundred hours.

Aye, sir.

Hey Jones, your sister say anything

about me?

That clock is incorrect.

My name is Frank Reno,

I'm the Program Director here,

and I've been with the Navy

since before you were born.

Since before Jesus was born.

Doctor Reno is a civilian, SES-5,

that is a rank equivalent of an Admiral.

Which means keep your goddamn mouths shut.

Thank you, chief. Go ahead Doc.

I graduated from MIT in 1942,

I wanted to do my part in the war effort,

but the Navy wasn't interested

in a 12 year old recruit.

Fortunately, they had other plans for me.

I couldn't even drive myselfto base

and there I was working with

the greatest minds

and theoretical physicists,

on what would become

the most important discovery in history.

You may not be aware,

but the US Military was already

experimenting with stealth technology.

We called it...

The Philadelphia Experiment.

It's been called that.

But the official, unofficial name was,

Project Rainbow.

We were attempting to

use electromagnetic radiation

to bend light around an object.

We were trying to make

our ships invisible to the enemy.

Instead we stumbled upon

something far more powerful.

In July of'43,

the US Eldridge was docked in

a Philadelphia Naval Shipyard,

when all of a sudden it just disappeared.

At around the same time,

that same ship was spotted offthe

coast of Norfolk,

Virginia by a Merchant Marine vessel,

some 370 miles away.

Most ofthe crew vanished completely

and 5 ofthem were actually fused to

the various bulkheads and decks

of the ship it self.

Leaving many people, however,

to believe that the government

actually discovered teleportation.

Not quite.

The Edridge didn't move at all,

at least not through space.

The position ofthe ship didn't change,

but the position ofthe Earth, did.

A Rainbow device actually sent the Eldridge

We're talking about time travel here?

Indeed. Afterthe war,

the program was moved here,

where experimentation continued.

By 1949 I was in charge ofthe program

and eagerto take it to the next level.

So on 29 November ofthat year,

I sent a team of scientists and sailors,

including my older brother, Erik,

through the time portal.

But the system, my system,

for bringing them back, didn't work

and 19 men and 2 women

were stranded 70 million years in the past.

You didn't think a couple of weeks

were enough?

We were trying to be careful.

There was a great deal of debate

about creating temporal paradoxes...

Like if you went back in time

and killed your grandfather sort ofthing.

Yes, so I chose a time well

before human history

to minimize the chances of

adversely affecting the present.

I've spent the last 59 years

trying to correct my mistake

and improving technology

to safely rescue the people

I sent to their deaths.

Excuse me sir,

what makes you think

they even survived the transportation?

We weren't sure,

until a couple of weeks ago,

when a team of archaelogists

discovered a series of cave paintings,

in Western Argentina.

Electro-carbon analysis dates

these paintings

at between 64 and 76 million BC.

Yea, but that doesn't prove that

those are your guys...

This is not yourfault

Lights please.

Welcome. To the Rainbow Room.

Everything you see here,

controls the mechanics ofthe Rainbow device.

What is it?

Basically, a mile long Berillium tube,

we discovered in Philadelphia,

that by applying electro-magnetic energy,

we could create a tactionic field

inside the tube

that spins at close to the speed of light.

Afterthat it was just a matter of gravity.

To do what?

To open a wormhole.

The theory of general relativity

allows the possibility of closed

time like curves,

through which an object can move to

any point within that curve.

When the Rainbow Device

reaches maximum velocity

the path between two points

in a curve is created.

The gravitational pull of an object

dropped into the singularity

creates a passage through space time.

Look, I could sit here

and try to explain quantum mechanics,

CTL's and Mankowski space theories,

but I believe you would be bored,

and you still wouldn't understand it.

The bottom line is

it's a surprisingly simple process,

but the difficulty has been within

calculating the space time relation.

When hasn't been nearly as big

a problem as where.
