Plot Synopsis

A secret government research project tries reviving the World War II "Philadelphia Experiment," which was an attempt to create a cloaking device using Einstein's Unified Field Theory to make warships invisible. The new test goes horribly wrong, ripping a hole in the fabric of space/time, causing the USS Eldridge -- a destroyer that famously vanished nearly 70 years ago -- to come hurtling back. An investigation ensues, led by the professor responsible for rekindling the project and a defense contractor who had been trying to shut down the project. Unbeknownst to them, there is a sole survivor onboard the Eldridge, Bill Landry, a member of the original crew, who fled the ship before it jumped away and now finds himself nearly 70 years out of time. Attempting to shut the Eldridge down, an incursion team fails to reach the ship's generator in time and the boat jumps again, completely destroying the city. In just a few more jumps, the Eldridge will have built up enough critical mass to tear the world apart. Landry soon reunites with his granddaughter and together they race against time to stop the rogue ship before it destroys the planet.
