Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Computer expert Zach Burnham (Ken Smith) is a trifle nervous about his new job with a huge corporation, especially since his predecessor had disappeared without a trace after downloading some of the corporation's software. Zach soon gets an inkling as to what happened to the other guy when he stumbles upon a secret artificial-intelligence project called Prometheus, designed to create a linking universal language for every computer on earth. Should Prometheus ever reach the "tipping point," millions of electronic intelligences would merge -- thereby allowing certain sinister parties to take over the world. "The Tipping Point" first aired on September 15, 2001.
