Trapped within the modern age, Ahab looked to finding a means of returning to his old time. He came to believe that the nation of Transia had a means of returning him back to his future. Thus, he approached the government where he offered his services as a Mutant Hunter and stated that he had a cure for mutation. Ahab was, however, imprisoned with his Hounds taken from him though Commandant Constantin intended to use the villain as part of his own efforts at purging Mutants from his country. (X-Force v5 #2)
After ambushing Deathlok Prime, he cannibalised the cyborgs tachyon probability generator allowing him to predict the future. Before he could escape, he was confronted by General Constantin who wanted revenge for the death of his son with their fight leading to a battle with X-Force. Whilst in a confrontation with Cable, Ahab was ambushed by Constantin who critically damaged Ahab leaving his broken body behind though with the tachyon generator he concluded that Kid Cable actions had damaged the timeline rather than rectified it.
