Even to the last he maintained his one strict, if morbid rule. His one pessimistic precaution. He only kept company with the dead. There'd be time enough to forge new acquaintances when the deed was done. In 1912, Doctor Jonathan Wells, armed with knowledge of the future, changes the course of the Titanic's maiden voyage, determined to steer the 20th century away from world wars, genocide, death and destruction. In 2012, Major Joseph Kennedy, witness to the catastrophic outcome of Wells' plan, has the technological means to reach back into the years that separate them. What would you do if you could go back and alter the past?
