Time travel can form the central theme of a story or it can simply be a plot device to drive a story. Time travel in fiction can ignore the possible effects of the time traveler's actions, as in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, or it can use one possible resolution or another of the Grandfather paradox.
Although The Time Machine (by H. G. Wells) was instrumental in moving the concept of time travel to the forefront of the public imagination, non-technological forms of time travel had appeared in a number of earlier stories. Some even earlier works had featured elements suggestive of time travel, but remain somewhat ambiguous.
A number of themes tend to recur in time travel stories, often with enough variations to make them interesting.
Changing the Past: in this genre, a visitor to the past changes history using knowledge and/or technology from his or her own time, either for good or evil, creating an alternate history as a result. Examples of this genre include Lest Darkness Fall by L. Sprague de Camp and the 2009 Star Trek film.
The Guardians of Time: in this genre, a group of people are charged with ensuring that time turns out "properly" (i.e. protecting it from changes by other time travelers). Examples of this genere include The Big Time and the other Change War stories by Fritz Leiber, Terry Pratchett's Thief of Time, Simon Hawke's TimeWars series, John Schettler's Meridian series, Simon Lee's Timekeepers, and The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov. Another example of this concept is the Doctor Who television series, whose main character is a "Time Lord" called "the Doctor" who personally intervenes to fight the evil he encounters if he is called on to do so, and whose people are essentially scholars and historians who usually only observe histories.
Preventing a Bad Future: in this genre, the main characters learn, either by going to the future and returning or by the arrival of a time traveler from the future, that the future has not turned out well, having either turned into a dystopia or resulted in the end of the world. The characters then try to change something in the present which prevents that future from coming to pass. The Terminator film franchise includes several stories of time travelers from the future waging war with each other so as to create or prevent a post-apocalyptic future. In the TV series Terra Nova, humans travel 85 million years into the past in an effort to prevent disaster later.
Unintentional Change or Fulfillment: in this genre, a time traveler intends to observe past events, or is taken to the past against his will and tries to return to his proper time. However, the time traveler discovers that his actions have unintentionally altered the future because of the Butterfly effect. A Sound of Thunder is an example of this genre.
The time travel motif also has an ideological function because it literally provides the necessary distancing effect that science fiction needs to be able to metaphorically address the most pressing issues and themes that concern people in the present. If the modern world is one where the individuals feel alienated and powerless in the face of bureaucratic structures and corporate monopolies, then time travel suggests that Everyman and Everybody is important to shaping history, to making a real and quantifiable difference to the way the world turns out.
