The current time line is 2016. And the USA is under siege from the al-Quaeda and the Chinese. They nuked Washington in 2009 and overran the United States. The few remaining citizens have formed vigilante groups. The currency is bargains, as paper money or coins are no longer in use. DC is now home to the Other side and they enforce the laws.

Ariel Anderson was inside the Pentagon when the nukes hit DC and wiped out everything she loved. For years she lay hidden alone inside the belly of the Pentagon. She studied everything she could lay her hands on, and then built a miniature time machine which gives her access to backstep for a few hours in time.

But science is not perfect and on one of her backsteps she unfortunately brings back someone from the past and he now shares her existence. These are the continuing stories of their problems and victories. Along the way they encounter friend and foe. The military officer she returns with goes back in time to recruit for the future.

If you wish to participate, we need hardened ex-military vigilantes who are willing to do whatever it takes to get back the USA from the enemy.
