SAM'S FIRST LEAP -- THE UNTOLD STORY!
A Novel by Ashley McConnell
(From the back cover)
"Here's how it all began! Dr. Sam Beckett wasn't always a leaper, and Admiral Al Calavicci wasn't always a holographic image. In 1993, at Stallion's Gate, New Mexico, Sam and Al were ordinary men with extraordinary ambitions...
Project Quantum Leap was only a dream.
The answers are just a Leap away...
An all new adventure -- First Time in Print!"
Based on the Universal television series "Quantum Leap"
Created by Donald P. Bellisario
Leap Date Edit
Through various little hints and clues, the date of Sam's first leap has been determined to be 1995 (seven years after our present, since Quantum Leap premiered in the spring of 1989). This date was confirmed in the fifth season episode, "Killin' Time." Al's "present" tended to jump around a bit during the course of the series. Through arithmetic or direct statements, it was 1997 in the third season finale, then 1999 for the fourth season opener. Then in the fifth season opener, the date was given as a few months *before* the fourth season opener, with references to events from the fourth season.
All time periods of note: Summer, 1990 Spring, 1993 Spring, 1995
