In the year 2077, in Vancouver, a group of terrorists are being executed. But before it happens they are all transported back in time, to our present day. Also on board is is a cop named Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols of Alias, Star Trek), who was in the vicinity.
Now, in 2077 she wants to figure out how to go back to her own time. But while doing so, becomes partner with a detective, Carlos (Victor Webster of MUTANT X) and they try to prevent that group of terrorists from changing the future. In the future Corporations have taken over and part of the population does not like that one bit. Kiera has brought back some technology with her, which includes a body suit that acts as protection and a computer, and a chip in her brain that allows her to replay events and access information. As this was all built with the computers and technology of future gazzillionaire Alec Sadler (William B. Davis, the cigarette smoking man from X-Files), she ends up getting in contact with his younger self (Erik Knudsen of Jericho), who has recently developed the first version of that same computer. They can communicate with each other via the computer in her brain.
There's also a lot of squabbling between the bad guys, from a genetically modified soldier who wants to be the leader to Matthew Kellog, who leaves them in order to become rich with his future knowledge.
This is an interesting premise, particularly in that if one of the ancestors is killed it doesn't make the character disappear. Is this an alternate reality they've created, by being in the past? Or is it because they already exist in the "present", so nothing can affect them, even the death of their own grandmother? The first season ends with a building being blown up, which happened exactly as in her history. And she seemingly disappears into thin air. Is it her high tech body suit making her invisible or did she go back to her own time? You find out in the next season...
I like this series because, while it tries to fit the police procedural type show, it's not a typical time-travel based show. Recommended.
