Time Cop's Time Sled  - Time Travel device featured on the sci-fi series TIMECOP/ABC/1997.

T.W. King as Jack Logan - TIMECOP

The series starred the adventures of cocky Timecop Jack Logan (T. W. King) who worked for the Time Enforcement Commission in the year 2007. His mission: to hunt down rogue time travelers and bring them to justice before they can alter the past and thus change history.


"The year 2007, time travel is a reality and it's fallen into criminal hands. With history itself at risk the United States has formed the Time Enforcement Commission, a top secret agency responsible for policing the temporal stream. An elite team of agents track unlawful travelers across time, their mission: protect the past preserve the future. These agents are known as Timecops."


To accomplish his mission Logan traveled back into time on a time sled. Mounted on rails much like an amusement park ride, the time sled would accelerate towards a wall and just as it appears the sled would crash through it, the time sled time warped into another reality.

What's a typical day in the life of a Timecop? Well, according to a press release for the show:

"Imagine spending the morning sailing to the New World with Christopher Columbus, the afternoon witnessing JFK's assassination, and the evening coming back home to the year 2007. It's all in a day's work for the Timecops, who police the time continuum for criminals looking to change the course of history. Your assignments are not always clear, and if you don't get your suspect, or if you leave something unfinished, the consequences can be severe."
