Missing the people and places of his own time, Buck is helped out of his depression by Wilma and Huer, who plan to cheer him up with a surprise birthday party. As a diversion to Buck, he is sent with Raylyn Derren to escort her on a trip to New Detroit with some of Huer's paperwork. Little do they realize that an assassin named Cornell Traeger is waiting for the girl so he can steal Dr. Huer's schedule, and plot to kill him as revenge over a previous encounter.
