Storyline

Project Questor is brainchild of the genius Dr. Vaslovik: he developed plans to build an android super-human. Although he's disappeared and half of his programming tape was erased in the attempt to decode it, his former colleagues continue the project and finally succeed. But Vaslovik seems to have installed a secret program in Questor's brain: He flees and starts to search for Vaslovik. Since half of his knowledge is missing, he needs the help of Jerry Robinson, who's now under suspect of having stolen the android. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Trivia

The character of Questor is considered a prototype of Gene Roddenberry's later creation, Mr. Data of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). In particular, a scene written for this movie in which Questor makes love to a female character was reportedly ordered cut by censors, but Gene Roddenberry later arranged for a similar scene to be included in the Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) episode, "The Naked Now."

Quotes

Jerry Robinson: Do you understand the implications of all this? Suppose Vaslovik isn't a good man.
[pause]
Jerry Robinson: Suppose he isn't even sane.
Questor: One's creator not sane... An interesting question. How would you answer that query in your own case, my friend?

The usual 70s android stuff
16 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I suppose this TV movie could have been turned into a series. It probably would have been no worse than The Six Million Dollar Man, which today is unwatchable. Robert Foxworth minus his usual mustache plays an android in search of his missing creator and some answers about his purpose. Mike Farrell plays his builder and companion. The military is after them, led by John Vernon of Animal House fame. I found the movie incredibly dull, even though it was a Roddenberry concept. Maybe it looked like something in 1974, but not today. Foxworth's android was clearly the forerunner for Data, by the way, just not as interesting. But who knows? Maybe a series would have made a difference.
