1968, and a US Government Politician visits a secret facility. It contains half a dozen underground buildings, each 800 storeys deep and containing 12,000 men. Its purpose is ... time travel!
James Darren goes back in time, and ends up on the Titanic - just like the Time Bandits did. The encounters aboard the ship amount to a slanderous attack on the Captain. Darren's friend from 1968 goes back in time to help him, leaving them both trapped ...
The show used C20th Fox's vast library of stock footage, so there is probably footage from A Night To Remember in this ep. The irony is that the brains behind this show, Irwin Allen, created The Poseidon Adventure - and with it, the 1970s Disaster Movie genre!

The 2 explorers land in the Wild West. They discover a pair of Alien invaders [actors with silver skin-paint, straight out of Lost in Space] have taken over a ranch. The aliens hold one of the explorers hostage, and send the other into town to demand all the supplies of food and livestock.
Things get worse. The town is under siege by the Apaches, and the Sheriff thinks the time travellers are in league with the aliens!
The time travellers land in the villa of Count Galba, on the border between Italy and Austria. The year is 1915, and the villa is captured by the German army [not Austrians, for some strange reason]. Richard Jaekel [Dirty Dozen] plays one of the German soldiers.
One by one the characters are possessed by the ghost of the Roman Emperor Nero who swore revenge on the Roman General Galba and all his descendants.
The duo are recruited as spies by Joshua. They want to stop the Jericho-ans from practising their religion - sacrificing a virgin. They dress as Arabs, even though they should be in Canaanite garb instead. Rahab is called a harlot, although in her defence she is safe from sacrifice. God intervenes.
The end is in the 1500s, with Cortez. This is the start of one of the biggest bloodbaths in history.
The two Yanks join forces with a couple of Native Americans against Cortez and the Conquistadors. They call the natives civilised, gleefully ignoring the fact that the Aztecs practised human sacrifice hundreds of times every day. Worse, if the Yanks change history and prevent Cortez from winning, they will prevent the eventual colonisation of the western United States with the predictably detrimental effects on their own time-travel project!
