Veritas: The Quest is a television program that aired in 2003. It follows a rebellious but intelligent teenager, Nikko Zond, discovering that his father, Solomon's profession is much more mystical and adventurous than he previously thought. Solomon and his team (dubbed "Veritas," a Latin variant of "the truth") search for the answers to some of the world's mysteries, a quest began because of the mysterious disappearance of Nikko's mother during an archaeological dig. Thus begins Nikko's fantastical journey into an Indiana Jones-style adventure with his father and his colleagues in trying to follow in his mother's footsteps to discover what strange secrets she was uncovering. The series was only partially shown in the United States with only four episodes being aired. Thirteen episodes were broadcast on Sci-Fi Channel in the United Kingdom and Sony Entertainment Television of Spain. Though the series only filmed one season, the final episode showed the viewer that there was more to Nikko Zond than first met their eye.
In a further episode, Nikko is poisoned and the only cure is for him to drink water that heals, and assures eternal life. While it is unknown if he gained eternal life or not, he did heal.
In the final episode, he suffered from hallucinations that lead him to find a fragment of an artifact called the "Ring of Truth". Before the episode ends, he has another hallucination that reveals that the fragment of the "Ring" also joins together with another fragment that his father had acquired earlier in the series. The episode ends with Nikko displaying telekinetic powers: when he reaches for his soda, it slides across the table into his hand.
