The spin-off series revolves around the consecutive adventures of the billionaire inventor (portrayed by Richards) who is dug into a world of science-fiction trick and undescribed wonder following when his father disappeared mysteriously.
Tom goes on a mission in order to uncover the fact behind his father’s disappearance, and leave the luxury of his regular comfortable lifestyle behind, all while combatting to be a step forward of an Illuminati-scale group determined on preventing him.
In order to uncover the truth, Tom will require his skills and ability for conception led by love, romance, friendship, and the riddles of the universe that are yet to resolve.
