Carter must help an aged scientist recover his memory in time to stop a doomsday device from destroying the world. The old scientist, Dr. Thatcher, has not been the same ever since he didn't win the Nobel Peace Prize for creating a mutual assured destruction device, which fires a beam of irradiated uranium isotopes at a mirror on the moon, bouncing back at Earth to hit another target.

Welcome to Eureka, a seemingly normal small town somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. But you won't find it on any maps outside of the Pentagon. And if you're here you must be a genius. Because everyone else in town is.
