Thunderstone: episode guide


Series 3

Noah and his family now live in the future land of Elysium. Arushka is there too supervising the animal reserve. Thanks to Noah's mastery of space travel, Earth has recently colonised the planet E-Delta. But forty years later E-Delta is in trouble. Only the young have survived, ruled by Drako, an arrogant and charismatic sixteen-year-old. Drako leads a party back through time to wreak vengeance on Earth. Now Noah and Arushka are faced with their biggest challenge yet — to defend the animals and save not one world but two.

It is the year 2020 where Noah Daniels is famous for discovering time travel, saving the world, and making the colonisation of space possible.

Arushka is held captive on the planet E-Delta, where the Bioplex structure is the only thing that stands between the inhabitants and their hostile environment. You can't last long outside without an oxygen pack and during the time of the red giant sun, you can't last at all. Drako, the handsome leader of the E-Delta kids, advises Arushka to get used to her new home — she's sixty million light years from Earth and any hope of rescue. Noah and the Nomads have other ideas as Chip impulsively jumps through Noah's experimental wormhole. Noah pursues him and the two emerge on E-Delta and make their way inside the settlement after rescuing one of the young colonists.
