Science Fiction Story: A man is killed by religious militants while protecting his fellow workers. He unexpectedly wakes up to find he's been abducted by aliens and they have an offer for him. He accepts the offer to be placed in an environment like Earth was 35,000 to 40,000 years ago, complete with animals and humans of that time. But there's a catch, it's a one-way trip and he's a star in their version of a reality broadcast show. They supply some gear to help him survive, and now it's up to him to do so.

Chorus to ‘Up There Cazaly’ by Mike Brady (1979)

Up there Cazaly, in there and fight
Out there and at ‘em, show ‘em your might
Up there Cazaly, don’t let ‘em in
Fly like an angel, you’re out there to win
