Synopsis for "Run From Tomorrow, Part One: Present Tense"
A Time Bubble crash-lands as a Legion team tries to follow Alastor and pierce the Flashpoint breakwall. They find that their Legion Flight Rings are no longer functioning, and other tech is also not working, but they still manage to find Alastor's time sphere, although it is empty. A chronometer scan tells the Legion that he left the time-sphere thirty hours prior, so they are slightly less than "hot on his tail". Luckily, Timber Wolf has his scent. Timber Wolf volunteers to chase after Alastor while the others try to fix the time-sphere, even though Tyroc thinks that the team should not separate. However, it seems that it is too late - Dawnstar senses that Alastor has already released a deadly pathogen. Timberwolf returns with a captured Alastor, who put up no resistance. They hope that with him out of the picture, the pathogen will have little effect, thus explaining why they had no knowledge of this event. They hop into their newly-repaired time-sphere and head back for home. However, Alastor has been infected, and while transforming into a monstrous form, ends up blowing-up the time sphere. The Legion manages to escape just in time, except for Gates and Chameleon Girl, whom they believe to be dead, and Alastor, whom is missing...
