Back Cover:

Tout le monde connaît Sam Beckett et Al, son “ange gardien” holographique, homme à femmes, dingue de costards rétro. Mais entre ces deux-là, ça a commencé rétro. Mais entre ces deux-là, ça a commencé comment? Comment est né le projet Code Quantum?

Voice, noir sur blanc, le genèse de l’histoire: le tout premier épisode de la célèbre série TV! Comment le Dr Sam Beckett, prix Nobel, savant de renommée mondiale, s’est-il retrouvé projeté dans de temps, sa conscience allant habiter les corps de différentes personnes dont il doit assumer l’identité?

Pourquoi l’admiral Al Calavicci se promène-t-il à travers le temps et l’espace sous la forme-d’un hologramme, suivant Sam, essayant de l’aider et de retourner vers son propre corps, sa propre époque?

Sam et Al avait un projet fou: permettre à l’homme de voyager dans le temps et d’être le témoin de l’Histoire.

Mais Ziggy, l’ordinateur surpuissant qui va permettre ces voyages, éveille des convoitises de toutes parts. Sam Beckett va devoir se battre pour mener à bien son projet, et aussi pour survivre dans la jungle du monde scientifique...

Synopsis:

Summer, 1990
Spring, 1993
Spring, 1995


Dr. Sam Beckett wasn't always a leaper. And Admiral Al Calavicci wasn't always a holographic image. In 1993, at Stallion's Gate, New Mexico, Sam and Al were ordinary men with extraordinary ambitions...

Project Quantum Leap was only a dream.

What was the secret that made Ziggy much more than a machine? Why did Sam really want to travel in time? Where was Al that fateful winter night? And who almost destroyed the dream before it began?

The answers are just a leap away...
