SYNOPSIS: In the year 2071 scientists conduct historical research by sending heavily armed robots back in time. When one of the robots malfunctions, they solve the problem by sending even more robots back to destroy it. But something goes wrong (go figure) and the robots end up destroying nearly all life on Earth and changing history. Only Sinclair, the project's chief scientist, survives the transition with his memory of the real timeline intact. Now he has to find a way to restore the timeline and get his life back. If he can survive long enough.

Crummiest Ending
"I Faced the Nicholas Sinclair of the Paradox World, and All I Got Was This Crummy Ending..."
We start with the hero giving a really tortured voice-over explanation of how the plot was resolved (bonus points for figuring out what the hell he’s talking about). Then the hero goes home, finds his wife mysteriously pregnant, and spouts some drivel about how you can never really go home again. Then an RV drives through desert and a kid asks "When are we stopping for dinner?" "When I stop for dinner," answers his father. "Well, when are you stopping for dinner?" The End.
