The Z-Program is a project initiated by SERN and funded by the Committee of 300. It is described to be "A top secret project spanning international borders. Like electromagnetic wave research." The purpose of the program was to create a utopia by obtaining the power of time travel. To realize this dream, they began working on their time machine and used human experimentation in the process. By 2036 in the Alpha worldline, SERN would take control of time travel and realize a dystopia for humanity.
