The best way to see CyberMaster (aka Shepherd II) is to make a double bill of this and the original CyberCity (aka Shepherd) and watch them together. While obviously lower budget than the first, it has the good sense to evolve the time-line of the original building on the lives of most of the characters of the first, and the excellent good sense to not take itself too seriously.
The continuing saga of Dakota, Lilith and gang center on the idea that the Earth surface may be habitable again. Miles, determind not to lose control of the underground cities decides to launch the last orbiting nuclear weapons to assure that Earth's surface remains unihabitable, forcing the populations to stay underground where he is the master of all things.
All Dakota has to do is stop him.
Thankfully, C T Howell is back as Dakota, Hidie von Paleske as Lilith, and Mackenzie Gray as the penulimately evil "Miles", and there's a great performance throughout by the spectacular Cherilee Taylor as a "new generation Shepherd".
Some shots are obviously flashbacks to the original but as it makes sense in the story it doesn't bother you too much.
