I have been watching the show Timeless and have found the adventures through time interesting. Unlike Quantum Leap where the time traveler was working to set events right, this show has two sets of time travelers, one who wants to rid the world of a powerful shadowy group while the other wants to prevent the first from destroying the present.
So let’s journey back in history - Which events are the most important to our current reality? What are the watershed moments that we need to protect the most?
Q1A You find yourself in the year 1968 with a multitude of events that shaped the path of the United States. Take a look at the link and decide which of the following you would channel your efforts to either preserve, or change. (Preserve -If an event caused a desired outcome. Change - if event caused negative outcomes) http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/31/us/1968-important-events/
Q2 The powers that be shift you back to the 1940s. This time you have a longer era to examine. Here is a list of events http://history1900s.about.com/od/timelines/tp/1940timeline.htm take a look and determine which you would work to ensure they happened or which you would want to rewrite history.
Q3 You keep getting kicked back in history little by little. This time you land in the 1920s. Investigate the events and again choose the event that is most important to protect or redirect to make the present the best it can be. See examples http://history1900s.about.com/od/timelines/tp/1920timeline.htm
Cue the Mission Impossible Music because our conversation is taking a little different twist. We not only have to identify important watershed moments, but we have to save a life.
Q4 The time machine has malfunctioned and it has sent you spiraling out of control. There isn’t a specific time period registering on the control panel. This time it simply reads - Most important event in all of history. You need to program the computer to the most important event in history to prevent history from being steered down a negative path.
Q5 A plot is afoot to travel back in time and assassinate the most important Woman in history. Your job is to first identify who this woman is and then travel back in time to protect her from the assassin.
Q6 You were successful in stopping the previous plot. However our villains are not ready to give up. They have a new sinister plan. This time they want to assassinate the most important Leader in history. Your job is to first identify who this person is and then travel back in time to protect them from the assassin. The key is to go back to the time when they make that critical decision that sets destiny.
