In his lab, Professor Jason Arnold shows his prized-pupil, Tom Graves, an experiment for prolonging life. Professor Arnold injects a serum into lab animals, but the animals simple fade and disappear. Jason gets animated, accidentally stabbing himself with the needle and fading away. Tom Graves instantly injects himself with the needle to help the professor. He hurtles through a swirling 'rainbow of color' and finds himself in an unfamiliar world.

He is attacked by a strange, Red-Tentacled Thing, falling into the "stream of color" running across the planet. There, he reunites with Professor Arnold, who informs Graves they are "obviously stranded in the fourth dimension". The color-stream, Jason says, must be the "stream of time". Tom intends to leave and gets out of the "time-stream", but instantly faces the Thing. Professor Arnold comes to the aid of Tom, but is struck by the Red-Tentacled thing while trying to retrieve tablets from the pocket of his lab coat. Jason instantly turns older, dropping the tablets. Tom Grave examines the professor to find Jason is dead.
