Pilot Logline: Years after Rick's mother and sister mysteriously vanish, he creates special facial recognition software that shows a girl, who doesn't seem to age, popping up in the background of his childhood photos. But when this software gets him arrested on hacking charges, he is recruited by a shadowy organization to help capture the first ever time traveler.
