When Scotty is captured by a local gangster he encounters a beautiful drug addict working for the mobster. Their attempts to escape invariably lead to recapture. And, of course, Kelly is of no help when he also joins this endless game of cat and mouse.
Our duo needs to keep an obnoxious drug smuggler alive until his escort arrives to extradite him to the United States to testify or face justice. But no one is immune to the intrigue on this assignment.
Scotty and Kelly are assigned to investigate the death of an American agent in a fiery car crash and more important, the whereabouts of the secret documents he was carrying. Word on the street is the documents were destroyed in the fire but now one really believes that, including the bad guys who are happy to trade cash or bullets to acquire them.
Scotty and Kelly pound the pavement to find an escaped prisoner, a Chinese agent scheduled for exchange for an American held by the Chinese. Surprise! He doesn't want to be exchanged which leads to some hazardous situations.
Scotty and Kelly, with the aid of a new woman recruit, an American scientist and a bellman, need to obtain a sample of a Chinese biological warfare agent. Alas, their colleagues experience the dangers of the spy game.
This week's assignment is to recover a roll of microfilm stolen from an Army courier. Unfortunately its in the hands of a crime lord. To get it back Kelly has to meet the gangster price, in cash or blood.
In the series pilot (whose showing was delayed well into the first season), Kelly narrowly escapes a sniper's bullet while playing a tennis match in Hong Kong. He and Alexander Scott, a pair of U.S. agents, aren't on assignment at the time. Shortly thereafter, they are told to find a freight train that disappeared between China and Hong Kong. The train was only carrying building materials. It turns out, however, there was a passenger who is of great interest to China.
