Two episodes from the early run of the series, starring Richard Coogan as the Captain and Don Hastings as the Video Ranger. In episode one, the Captain has defeated the Martian warrior Seta in hand-to-hand combat and is trying to conclude peace negotiations on the fate of the defeated planet Terzan. He successfully pleads for the Terzan people to remain free, and for the imposition of an Earth-style, Marshall Plan-type rebuilding of the planet and re-education of its people. But on Earth, Dr. Pauli (Hal Conklin) is trying to form an allegiance with the warlike Terzan government and destroy the Captain's peace plan, even as he heads to Terzan to make the peace work.
In episode two, Dr. Pauli has joined forces with the sinister warlord Su Ching Sing, and murdered a member of the Dancing Bear Tong. The Captain wants to know what their plans are and arrests Black Dick Connelly, a treacherous ship's captain who has done business with Su Ching Sing. But Connelly is killed before he can answer questions. Meanwhile, Dr. Pauli and Su Ching Sing are planning the death of the Captain.
