Plots

Scientist Sam Beckett finds himself trapped in the past, "leaping" into the bodies of different people on a regular basis. - Marty McKee

Theorising That One Could Time Travel Within His Own Life Time, Dr Sam Beckett Stepped Into the Quantum Leap Accelerator, and Vanished. He Awoke and Found Himself Trapped in the Past, Facing Mirror Images That Were Not His Own. and Driven by an Unknown Force to Change History for the Better. His Only Guide On This Journey is Al, An.observer from His Own Time, Who Appears in the Form of a Hologram, That Only Sam Can See and Hear. and So Dr Beckett Finds Himself Leaping from Life to Life, Striving to Put Right, What Once Went Wrong, and Hoping Each Time, That His Next Leap, Will Be the Leap Home

Doctor Sam Beckett led a group of top scientists into the desert to research his theory that a man could time travel within his own lifetime. Unfortunately, in order to save his funding, he was forced to enter the accelerator prematurely and vanished. He then found himself in someone else's body with partial amnesia. His only contact from home is Al, a holographic image only he can see and hear. Setting right things which once went wrong, Sam leaps from life to life, hoping each time that this is the final leap home. - Kevin

Although the project isn't ready yet, Sam hops into the Accelerator and leaps. As Tom Stratton, an Air Force test pilot, Sam finds his memory Swiss cheesed, with only enough left to know that he is not where or when he belongs. Al explains that the project has gone "a little ca-ca" and that the only way Sam can leap out is by flying the X-2 to Mach 3. Instead, Sam leaps after saving Tom's life, wife and child, only to find that rather than leaping home, he's leapt into Tim Fox, a minor league baseball player in Texas, at the end of the 1968 season, where he must make the winning play in order to leap. - Sam Beckett

Theorizing that one could time-travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project known as Quantum Leap. Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, Dr. Beckett prematurely stepped into the project accelerator... and vanished. He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time was maintained through brainwave transmissions with Al, the project observer, who appeared in the form of a hologram that only Dr. Beckett can see and hear. Trapped in the past, Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap would be the leap home." courtesy of: http://www.quantumleap-alsplace.com/#premise - Anonymous
