Travis Verta is one of the members of the terrorist organization known as Liber8 that made their escape from the year 2077 back to 2012, inadvertently dragging CPS Protector Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) with them.
Now, hiding out in the early 21st century, Travis and his fellows are recruiting, expanding, and planning to change their own future, seeking revenge on people and events that haven’t happened yet using his cunning intellect to persuade others to join him.
Will Kiera be able to stop them?
And as we’ll discuss this weekend in our review of episode 1, should we want her to?
Travis Verta is played by Roger Cross.
Cross is a genre favorite, he’s appeared in The Commish, Millennium, The X-Files, Stargate Sg-1, First Wave, The Outer Limits, Taken, X2, Enterprise, Fringe, Chuck, and played Curtis Manning on 24.
Cross was born in Jamaica, but moved to Vancouver when he was 11, and now resides in L.A.
Roger is always wonderfully intense in his performances, and it will be very cool to see what he does with Travis over the course of the 10 episodes of the series (hopefully if it does well enough we’ll get more than the 10).
Continuum debuts this weekend on Showcase, Sunday May 27 at 9pm.
How far would you go to save the future?
