Synopsis for "Saving Time"
On October 1, 2030, Earth is about to be destroy. Dr. Margaret Dey, her daughter Firehawk, former socialite and crystalline body Star Sapphire, and Dey's android Rampage prepare to travel back in time to 1997 to prevent Earth's destruction. They are briefly impeded by the adult age Atom III, who knows what Dr. Dey is doing and willing to stop her and her family. Dey and her family escape on the Kitty Hawk from Atom, who tries to warn them about the past and their actions, as the Earth explodes.
In 1997, Dey and her family arrives and crash land in the middle of Times Square. Eventually, Dey and the others managed to attract the media at a news conference at World's Finest in which they are unofficially called as the Doom Patrol. Dr. Dey urgently tells the audience of the impending Armageddon which involved with three key events consisting a failed Soviet space flight to Mars that destroys the Russians' entire space facility; a U.S. government official from the National Security Agency being assassinated by the Soviets; and a powerful storm which will hit New York and causing a power surge that will short out an in-progress experiment and warping and destabilizing the Earth's core. Unfortunately, the audience are completely skeptical of the Doom Patrol's warnings in which World's Finest dubbed Dey as "Doomsday".
The next day, the Doom Patrol take reservation at the Fortress Hotel and learns about the Soviet having already making a successful launch to Mars. Realizing that they are not too late to prevent the events to Armageddon from happening, the Doom Patrol travel on the Kitty Hawk to the U.S.S.R. to prevent another launch. Star Sapphire use her force-field to stop the rocket's launch but only to alert armed Soviet personnel. The Doom Patrol fight off the soldiers, but a single trooper fires a rocket launcher which misses the Doom Patrol and bypassing Star Sapphire's force-field, in which it destroys the rocket and causing it to explode and destroying the space facility in the process. The Doom Patrol escaped the conflagration. Firehawk point out the fact that the rocket's destruction was cause by them in which a confused Dr. Dey stated that the rocket was destined to explode whether they were there or not. The disaster is noticed by Nightwing in which Director Marcus Moore is interested in the Doom Patrol and believed their story and knowledge of future events. He decided that their determination to change the future for their benefit are dangerous to Nightwing's cause and have one of his agents to kill the Doom Patrol and blamed their deaths on the Soviets.
The Doom Patrol recuperate at their hotel and are visited by Jake Wiley, a agent of the National Security Bureau, who claims he is sent by President Schwartz to meet them. The Doom Patrol immediately recognized him as the same NSB agent who will be kill on the next day by the Soviets in retaliation for the destruction of their space launch. Wiley tells the Doom Patrol that they are needed to be move to seclusion and from allowing to cause a panic to the public. Ravage then approaches Wiley and tells him that as a synthetic being, he can detect that there are explosives carrying inside his pen. Wiley reveals himself to be a Nightwing agent sent by Moore and activate the pen, killing him and destroying the hotel room, but the Doom Patrol are safely protected in Star Sapphire's force-field. They then notice that the Kitty Hawk is being taken away by Nightwing in which Star Sapphire tries to stop them, but only to shred the craft's chronal pod and unleashing a rip in the fabric of reality. Firehawk realizes that their actions from the Soviet launch and the agent's death are the cause for the events that will lead to Earth's destruction. The Atom arrive to help the Doom Patrol in which they follow Dey's plan in using the Kitty Hawk's remaining chronal energy to fuse the rift shut. As they attempt to close the rift it is starting to turn into a storm in which Dey recognize this as the final event and she tells her daughter that they must find the experiment involving the Earth's core. It is now she remembers that the experiment is being taken place at Dey's very home at Deylight Theoretical Labs where her father Zachary Dey was responsible for conducting the experiment in which during the blackout the younger Margaret Dey was terrified to remember what had happened.
Dr. Dey and Firehawk races to Theoretical Labs where they sneak inside and manage to restore the power and allowing to stabilize Zachary Dey's experiment. After closing the rift, the Doom Patrol celebrate their victory in preventing Armageddon to happen. Although, Firehawk points out that the younger Dey still doesn't remember the night of the blackout and will cause the chain of events to happen again; however, Dr. Dey points out that the Atom will warn the Doom Patrol in the future because he remember them from the past. As she said this, the Atom emerges from the rubble without any memories for the last thirty minutes.
