A diferencia de la versión UK, la versión francesa incluye el trasfondo histórico en el propio juego. Para saltárselo, ir directamente a 08:09, donde comienza la versión UK. A continuación dejare un resumen del trasfondo en inglés que se puede encontrar en las instrucciones de la versión UK.
Unlike the UK version, the French version includes the historical background in the game itself. To skip it, jump to 8:09, that's the point where the UK version starts. Following this I'll leave a summary of the historical background in English that can be found in the manual of the UK version.
"New Melbourne, Sept 15th 2410
You have been selected as the only humanoid capable of succeeding in a mission of vital importance to the survival of the galaxy.
All available information on your mission is contained in this communication. Please study it carefully before commencing.
Codename for this mission is: FIFTH AXIS
For ease of use, this briefing has been divided into two sections. Background information and mission parametres.
As time is short, you may wish to ignore the historical background and proceed with your mission.
All that remains is for us to wish you success. All that we know depends on it.
Six months ago, Professor Chronos of the Vesta Institute of Temporal Studies, reached the culmination of his life's work.
The creation of a vehicle capable of moving backwards and forwards in time.
During his research, Chronos had discovered that the universe was contained, not within the four recognised axes, but within five.
The fifth axis governs the probability of events happening within the universe.
For this research he concluded that there was not just one reality, but an infinite number of probable realities.
For chronos the danger of a Temporal Paradox did not exist. He reasoned that, if you went back in time and killed one of your own ancestors, you would not cease to exist.
Instead, another reality would branch from that point, one in which you did not exist, but your own would remain unchanged.
Based on his deductions of the nature of the universe he commenced trips back in time to recover historical artefacts, assuming that his tamperings would be balanced in one of the other probable universes.
He did not realise that his actions were jeopardising the very reality of his own universe.
It was during one of these trips back in time with his assistant at the controls that the time machine malfunctioned and exploded, scattering its component parts (and those of its unfortunate occupants) throughout all time.
This detonation and the appearance of the fragmented time machine (referred to as anachronons) was too much for the fabric of the universe to stand.
There had been too many tamperings in the one time liner. Contrary to Professor Chronos's belief, more realities are not created.
Instead the universe has started to rotate around it's fifth axis to bring reality back into balance.
The present as we know it is becoming less likely the more the universe rotates.
The only way to reverse this shift is to collect all the artifacts from Chronos's lab and return them to their correct times and bring back the anachronons.
Only when this is complete will reality become fixed once more.
To help you, Professor Chronos has developed a second time based on his new Vectorial Propulsion System to aid you.
Be warned also that in the laboratory the instability is maximised and has caused the professor's cyborgs to run wild. They will attack you on sight.
You will be transported to Professor Chronos's temporal laboratory. Once there you must collect the historical artefacts and return them through time.
You must also retrieve the anachronons and return them to the laboratory."
