William Shatner guest stars as astronaut and old friend of Steve Austin's(Lee Majors) named Josh Lang who is affected by a mysterious electrical field while doing a spacewalk that seems to have somehow altered his mind, giving him super brain power that makes him able to do advanced math equations and also communicate with dolphins who are attuned to the same field that is now draining Josh of his will, threatening not only his life, but those around him, making him the subject of a police manhunt. Shatner is quite good here, with his entertaining(and stylistic) performance being the highlight, though this is still and interesting and melancholy episode.
