The „TimeBase 67“ is run by CHRONOTEX ENTERPRISES, the world leader in temporal research and the only company to offer CTC (closed time-like curve) time transition to the general public. We remain true to the vision of our founder, Sir James Buck, who believed that time travel should be open to all.
Of our five deep time facilities, „TimeBase 67“ is undoubtedly the jewel in our crown, a window on one of the most spectacular and majestic periods in earth’s history – the time of the dinosaurs.
The ride can get bumpy inside the X90 travel pod, but in seconds, you’re swept across the time bridge and, without taking a step, you’ll find that you’ve travelled further than you’ve ever done in your life.
Like an iceberg, most of the facility lies beneath the surface, with only the observation level and the seismology and climatology sensory array above ground. Below, four floors of accommodation contain several labs, a garage, two canteens, dormitories, and power generators – basically, everything the crew of 70 engineers and 40 scientists require to be self-sufficient for up to three years, if need be.
This monstrous paradise could not last forever, however. Towards the end of the Cretaceous, reptiles began to disappear from the seas and pterosaurs from the air. But on land the dinosaurs soldiered on, and some of the most spectacular species in their 170 million-year history evolved, such as Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops and Ankylosaurus. Then, in a geological blink of an eye, it was over – whether because of a huge meteor strike or a combination of factors, the giant dinosaurs were gone, leaving behind their exotic and colourful descendants, the birds.
