Storyline

Project Questor is the brainchild of the genius Dr. Vaslovik: he developed plans to build an android super-human. Although he has disappeared and half of he programming tape was erased in the attempt to decode it, his former colleagues continue the project and finally succeed in creating Questor. However, 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 is now suspected of having stolen the android. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Quotes

Vaslovik: [Questor has arrived at the cave] You have received the Truth?
Questor: I have received it. Since the dawn of this world, since our Masters left the first of us here, we have served this species Man.
Vaslovik: Each of us, at the end of his time, has assembled his own replacement. But man's quantum advance in physics found me unprepared. The new radiations affected the plasma in my braincase. Your design corrects this fault. You will function your full span.

Amazing Movie...
21 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last time I saw Questor was probably twenty + years ago, but at that time I think it still held up well. It's amazing how many robots and androids came out in the years following the "Questor Tapes" with little Questor mannerisms, not the least of which was Data.

I have no doubt that if the series had been picked up we would have seen an "evil" Questor (Lore or KARR), lots of android type searching for meaning, maybe even a tie in to the Gary Seven "pilot" episode on Trek. Questor would have fit into the Trek universe really well, don't know why Gene never did a tie in on Next Gen. Heck, they could have done a tie in on Enterprise.

Oh well... I received a letter from Majel a few years ago indicating she was still interested in doing a Questor series, but that was the last I ever heard. Sadness.
