Jack Breslin (Joe Cortese) was a cop who had to figure out who – or what – was killing humans and removing their organs.

He met lovely space alien Ta’ra (Maryam d’Abo) who was a medical officer on the spaceship where the killer (a horrible space monster) was kept, but who managed to escape to earth.

It was up to the duo to stop it and save the earth . . . which they did.

The series then went on to focus on the relationship between Breslin and Ta’ra (who posed as Jack’s cousin) and strayed from its science fiction theme with many of the new cases dealing with supernatural themes like psychics and telepathy.

The show originally went up against Dallas and fared horribly in the ratings. It was then re-scheduled against Beauty and the Beast and did even worse.
