In the first episode of a two-part story, evil female warrior Callisto (Hudson Leick) conspires with war god Ares (Kevin Smith) to free the Sovereign (Kevin Sorbo), the despotic alter ego of the noble Hercules (also Kevin Sorbo), from his interdimensional prison. The plan involves jailing Hercules in the Sovereign's place, then injecting him with fatal Hind's blood, but Callisto breaks away from Ares to team with the equally odious Hope (Amy Morrison), treacherous daughter of the demonic Dahak and Xena: Warrior Princess' Gabrielle. At Hope's suggestion, Callisto goes back in time to prevent Hercules' birth -- by "terminating" the hero's future mother, Alcmene (Kim Michalis).
