The series followed the exploits of survival-savvy garage mechanic Jack Tenrec (who has a passion for restoring classic car shells, mainly those of Cadillacs which the Mechanics use as their main form of transportation) and his often-reluctant companion, the foreign ambassador Hannah Dundee. She hires Jack as a liaison while she attempts to create clear communication between her land and the modern civilization. Together they confront the serious issues facing the futuristic environment that humanity has come to inhabit after nature spun wildly out of control causing the cities to fall into ruins and dinosaurs (which were thought to be extinct) to be revived to roam the Earth once more.

Jack and his crew of ecological freedom fighters known as the Mechanics, square off against opposition including the Council of Governors, the tyrannical Wilhelmina Scharnhorst and her nefarious henchmen.

Jack also has Hermes, a juvenile cutter (Allosaurus) that Jack hand reared. Gentle with Jack and Hannah, he can still be rather fierce when angered.

The show dealt with many strong ecologicial and political issues that were central to the plot development. One major focus was the question of how the dinosaurs managed to re-emerge after they were thought to be extinct.
