THE TIME TUNNEL

REVENGE OF THE GODS
by William Read Woodfield & Allan Balter


Doug and Tony become engaged in the war between the ancient Greeks and Trojans.

Somewhere on the Mediterranean, before 500 B.C., battle trumpets blow and Tony and Doug discover they are in no-manís land between the converging armies of the Greeks and the Trojans, outside of Troy. Captured immediately, they are taken to Ulysses, leader of the Greek army, and his aide Sardis. When Doug and Tony predict that the Greeks will win this ten year conflict, Ulysses takes them for gods. Sardis, disgruntled that Ulysses listens to the Time Travellers instead of heeding his military advice, challenges Tony. As the Time Tunnel crew focuses in on the event, Tony and Sardis are engaged in battle, Tony defeating but not killing his foe. Thoroughly humiliated ,Sardis sneaks off to Troy to join forces with Paris, the Trojan prince, who holds Helen prisoner against her will. He returns with a small patrol and kidnaps Doug while Tony is talking to Ulysses, forecasting his plans to use a wooden horse to penetrate the walls of Troy. Inside the Trojan palace, Doug demonstrates his knowledge of the future when he precipitates a quarrel between Paris and Helen. Helen warns Paris that to kill one god is to offend them all, so Paris orders that Doug is not to be harmed. The next day, when Tony leaps into the fray to fight the Greeks' fire trap with a torch, the Time Tunnel crew must send someone in to rescue him from the Trojans. The fire trap worked and the Trojans are beaten back into their city. That night the wooden horse is finished and Ulysses pretends to depart. The horse is left outside the city gates as a supposed tribute to the victors, so Paris brings it inside for all to see. But during the night Greek soldiers slip out of the horse and open the city gates letting in more Greek troops. Sardis sounds the alarm, but the Trojans, are taken by surprise. Tony forces him to tell where Doug is and he rushes to save him. Sardis is killed; Ulysses cuts Paris down; Helen is rescued; Troy is burned; and Tony and Doug are switched back into the Time Vortex.
