The young genius, Professor Serena Cole, is kidnapped by Doctor Janoke Greenbriar, a madman with an eye toward godhood which he plans to achieve by creating a time machine, but he needs Serena's help to make the machine possible!
When she refuses to co-operate with his diabolical scheme the evil madman threatens Serena's loved ones.
Never fear, though! The Daggers, a group of freelance freedom fighters and professional heroes, are on Greenbriar's trail and rushing to the rescue, but will they find her in time? What about rumours that Greenbriar has developed a way to reprogram a human mind? Even if they can rescue Serena, will they be getting back the same girl that'd left just days before to visit an innocent science conference?
