It’s 2026 and Iran’s nuclear threat has reached the point to where it’s highly believed they intend to launch a missile strike against Israel before years end; an ultra-aggressive action, and one that would no doubt mark the beginning of World War III.
US intelligence, in anticipation of this threat, has constructed an interplanetary transport capable of travelling through time. The objective is to send the transport back to 1945 (post World War II America) and convince the Truman Administration of the need to destroy all remaining nuclear weapons; as well as any archived records related to their construction.
However, should the warning from the future not be enough to dissuade Truman and his administration from continued production of said weapons, the decision would be made for him through swift and decisive military action using weaponry unimagined in 1945.
As the project dubbed Armageddon seems to be moving along according to plan, a coup engineered by the racially biased head of the CIA takes the transport back to the US Civil war, and changes its outcome instead.
As we flash forward to 2026(post Armageddon) the coup proves to have been a success, as what was formally known as the USA has become the Confederate States of America. A unilaterally governed society split into two separate classes: Ruling and Sub. Slavery has been altered to a form of indentured servitude, with the former slaves making up the majority of the subclass.
With no true democratic process, comes zero hope for a civil rights movement. That is until some dissension arises amongst the ruling class. Persons previously on board with the coup align themselves with a subclass underground group of united rebels hell bent on undoing the gross injustice perpetrated upon humanity.
Together they devise a plan to combat the newly reformed Confederacy. And though it will take almost two centuries, and several generations of sacrifice, they prove that with determination and the ability to travel through time, 160 years of history can be altered in a matter of weeks.
