In 1893 John Sprocket owned a small clock shop in Grimsby, England. A clockmaker by trade, Mr. Sprocket was exceedingly fond of every aspect of clockwork. He especially loved cogs. Unfortunately, a man named Hamilton was developing a new kind of clock – one without gears or springs. Sprocket spent the next few weeks in deep depression, wondering what could be done to preserve his beloved mechanical clockwork.
Renate Goodwin suggested they travel to the future to see what impact these new timekeepers would have on the world. While on their travels, Ms. Goodwin heard a noise coming from an apple barrel on their ship. They had a stowaway, Bradley Harrington III. Captain Sprocket decided to put Harrington to work, making him the chronographic navigator.
