The film is the first of four "Gamma One" science fiction films. The films were originally contracted by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to be made for TV movies but were released theatrically instead in some countries.[full citation needed]
A mad scientist, Dr. Nurmi, is engaged in secret bioengineering experiments. He starts kidnapping important world leaders for use in his eugenics program. Mike Halstead, a rogue cop, goes to the rescue in outer space. This includes rescuing his girlfriend Connie, who is also a captive of the mad scientist.
