Synopsis by Emru Townsend
Based on Mark Schultz's popular Xenozoic Tales comic book series, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs takes place in a post-apocalyptic 26th century. Dinosaurs have reclaimed the Earth, and mankind is struggling to regain a toehold on the world it once ruled. With much of man's technological knowledge lost, people are forced to relearn as much of the old ways as they can. Mechanics are among the most revered of the tribes because of their understanding of machinery, and Jack Tenrec is among the most respected of the Mechanics. Aided by scientist/diplomat Hannah Dundee from nearby Wassoon as well as fellow Mechanics Mustapha and Kirgo, Jack strives to use the teachings of the mysterious Grith to preserve the machinato vitae -- the "machinery of life" -- by convincing the expansion-hungry humans that they have to work with nature, not against it. With obstacles like Wilhelmina Scharnhorst, the governor of the City by the Sea, and the Terhune brothers, who head a band of poachers, Tenrec and his allies have their work cut out for them.
