Plot in a Nutshell: A scientist is injected with too much regeneration serum, driving him crazy and making him ultra-powerful.
Story Summary: A strange object falls from the night sky in Minnesota. What can it be? Whatever it is, Oscar immediately orders a cover-up.
Oscar and Rudy call Steve in, explaining that they are in a bind, but refusing to give him any information about what's going on.
Meanwhile, a space capsule is sitting in the middle of the forest with something pounding on the walls, desperately trying to escape from inside.
The creature escapes it's confines and terrorizes two campers in order to eat their cold cuts.
Steve and Rudy bail from the airplane and set out in search of the crashed space capsule. They quickly come across it and find Dr. Nicole Simmons frozen inside a cryogenic chamber. But Rudy discovers that the other capsule occupant is missing.
Using the atomic battery-pack in Steve's arm, they defrost Dr. Simmons. She and Dr. David Tate had been testing a new cell regeneration serum that would allow cryogenically frozen people to return easily and quickly from a suspended state.
While the defrosting is in progress, David, who received far too much serum in the crash, returns to the capsule.
He knocks Rudy out cold and smashes his walkie-talkie. Steve can't stop him because he must remain still while Dr. Simmons defrosts.
And Now a Word from our Sponsors
After the defrosting process has finished, Steve and Nicole head out to find David. They discover him lying unconscious on the shore of a small river. He's lucid at first, but when some of Oscar's guys show up, he attacks them and runs off into the woods.
Steve chases him down and the game is on!
First, they play tag.
Then a game of catch.
Then David goes swimming.
And Steve joins him.
It's all fun and games until David gets shot.
How Did You Do That Quote:
Nicole Simmons: "Is your arm generating the power to work the defroster?"
Nicole Simmons: "Then it has to be atomic powered."
Nicole Simmons:"Your arm's bionic."
Move your mouse over Steve to see his answer.
Final Thoughts: Another solid entry. Season 2 is shaping up well. The bionic fights are getting better. No blatantly obvious stuntmen. Good stuff.
