Catch Continuum Sundays at 9:00 PM (ET/PT).
Synopsis: Continuum is a one-hour police drama centered on Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols), a regular cop from 65 years in the future who finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver. She is alone, a stranger in a strange land, and has eight of the most ruthless criminals from the future, known as Liber8, loose in the city.
Luckily, Kiera, through the use of her future suit, manages to locate a frequency that patches her in to Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), a seventeen-year-old computer genius. Alec has access to experimental liquid chip technology that will become the basis for Kiera’s technology, including her suit and her CMR (Cellular Memory Recorder). When Kiera calls for help and Alec answers, a very unlikely partnership begins.
Kiera’s first desire is to get “home.” But until she figures out a way to do that, she must survive in our time period and use all the resources available to her to track and capture the terrorists before they alter history enough to change the course of the future. After all, what’s the point of going back if the future isn’t the one you left?
Kiera knows that the eight terrorists will resort to criminal activity to further their goals of taking down the corporations that will one day rule the world. Lives will be lost. Her goal is to kill or capture them before they can turn the world upside down.
For Kiera, there’s only one organization that can immediately help her with this task, and so she finds a way to work with the Vancouver Police Department. They have the resources and database access she needs to help her track the gang of criminals. Working with front line cops, Kiera is positioned best to hear about whatever it is the gang have planned and hopefully intervene. Kiera finds herself partnered with Detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster).
Like Kiera, Carlos is a cop with a passion for justice. They are from totally opposite ends of the ideological spectrum. Coming from 2012, Carlos believes in justice for the individual while Kiera, coming from 2077, believes in justice for the corporation. This provides sparks on many levels: work, political worldviews and emotionally.
Yet despite their differences, they have each other’s back. And although they get off to a rocky start, there’s an inherent trust that blooms between them. Kiera, brought up and trained to always depend on her technology, finds her relationship with Carlos has her learning to listen to her gut for the first time.
