Under the guidance of Commander Isaac Gampu (played by Jonathan ‘Dr Smith’ Harris of Lost In Space fame), and assisted
by Lieutenant Paul Jerome (Ty Henderson), the crew encountered new life forms, planets and civilisations as part of their mission.

One of the first things they encountered was Loki (Eric Greene), a young boy with the power of invisibility. A playful prankster, Loki could also teleport and could see well beyond the visible spectrum normally accessible by Earth humans. His frequent catchphrase was “Camelopardus!”

The cadets were Chris Gentry (Ric Carrott), his sister Laura (Pamelyn Ferdin), Tee Gar Soom (Brian Tochi) and Adrian Pryce-Jones (Maggie Cooper). Aiding them in their mission was Peepo, a pint-sized robot with its own personality.

Each adventure provided a learning experience for the crew and almost all of the stories had a moral to them.
