Out of Time:

A scientist made a discovery: time is actually fluid; the past, present, and future all exist in the same moment.
Now the US government wants him to find out if the current timeline can be altered by changes made in the past. It seems they are thinking of making some modifications to history...

...and that leads to time travelers in the twentieth century. Complicating things further is a mysterious someone trying to put a stop to this experiment in time.

Will these intrepid travelers find their present intact once they return? Or will appearances be deceiving?

Don't Mess With Earth:

An Exodus from Ancient Earth.

Eons past, an advanced group of humans leave the planet, but decide to stay in touch with the home world. They manipulate Earth history by posing as historical figures such as King Arthur, Galileo, Amelia Earhart, among others.

Enter the Ragnor, an alien species that experiment on other species for no other reason but that they can. The Ragnor find Earth, causing all sorts of historical anomalies such as the Salem Witch Trials and the disappearance of the Roanoke colonists. Then, in the 1940's, one of their ships get shot down over New Mexico, by American fighter pilots.
Once the scientists of Earth start reverse engineering that downed spacecraft, President Truman issues an executive order that will forever change Earth history...
