Query rewrite - any improvement?
I hope I'm getting the message. If not, I'd like to be told. Thanks.
William Prescott Smith is Earth’s only prospect for escaping the oppression of The Keepers. The time-bridge he created provides an opportunity for him to travel into the past – to a world not controlled by overwhelmingly powerful aliens. If he can prevent the activation of the beacon that originally summoned The Keepers, then they won’t learn of our existence, and humans will remain free pursue their own ambitions.
Fully aware that the use of time travel carries with it the danger of creating catastrophic change, William must weigh that risk against the alternative, unending subjugation by The Keepers. He opts for a shot at freedom.
When the aliens tighten their grip on Earth by suppressing recent advances in science and medicine, labeling them “dangerous technologies,” William sees his window of opportunity closing fast. He makes a mad dash for the past, where he plans seek out the assistance of a most unlikely partner, his past self, in the hope that together they can save the world.
