After several strange accidents occur while Ron Gates is training for the Mr. Galaxy contest, Kelly,Kris and Julie are called in to find out who is trying to injure him.Then,they are hired to protect bodybuilder Ron Gates,a top contender for the title of Mr. Galaxy, after someone makes an attempt on his life.Norman Powers, the manager for six-time Mr. Galaxy winner Chuck Wilde, approaches Ron and adviser Artie Weaver outside the run-down gym where Ron trains. Chuck, who spent time in prison for gang-related crimes before taking up bodybuilding, observes them with disgust. Shady promoter/arena owner Danny Barr confronts Ron and orders him to resume his boxing career after the conclusion of the contest. Ron offers to buy out his contract, but a furious Barr raves that Ron has betrayed him.

Bosley joins a gym and meets Chuck, while Julie gets a job as a part- time receptionist. She listens to Norman Powers' phone conversation and hears him yelling about money. Kelly poses as a reporter and sets up an interview with Barr, but he knows that she is actually a detective. He boasts that Ron would already be dead if he wanted to kill him. When Kris goes back to the gym to pick up her car, a man dressed as a jacuzzi repairman scurries outside and drives away quickly. Kris races upstairs and saves Ron from being electrocuted by the sabotaged tub. After Chuck throws away a note, Kelly and Julie fish it out of the garbage and learn the time and location of a clandestine meeting. They overhear him arguing with a man about money. Kelly sneaks in and looks over his records, but the man returns. Julie holds him at gunpoint, and they lock him in the bathroom.

With Barr the only remaining suspect, Kelly and Julie head for the arena to help Kris. Julie spots a car that fits the description of the one that knocked Ron and Kris off the road. Ron joins in the search for Kris, and Chuck also insists on putting the contest on hold to aid them because he does not want to win by default. A perplexed Bosley announces that the car used in the attack is registered to Selena. They track her down at her work station, and learn that she just rents the car from her employer--Barr. She gives them a tip about where Barr might hold Kris, and Ron and Chuck bust down the door. Kris escapes, and is pleased when Ron punches out one of the goons. He returns to the stage and wins the contest. Barr tries to run over Ron in the parking lot, but Kelly and Julie shoot up his car and force him to surrender.

One thing about this episode is a viewer's curiosity of why female detectives were hired to act as a bodyguard to a top bodybuilder contestant.But nevertheless,we get to see an episode that builds a lot of tension up until its conclusion that makes it worth the view as we see Kelly,Kris and Julie into a lot of action scenes especially against Ron's enemies.Also,this episode will also delight female viewers as they see men with muscles.
