The pilot for this series, produced in 1986, was called "Space Police" (also known as "Star Laws"). It starred 'Gerry Anderson' regular Shane Rimmer as Lt. Chuck Brogan and 'Catherine Chevalier' as his partner, Officer Cathy Costello. It was never broadcast. See more »

The opening credits include scenes from that week's episode. Gerry Anderson previously used this gimmick in "Thunderbirds" (1964) and "Space: 1999" (1975). See more »
I caught this show by accident one Saturday night while overshooting SNL (it had no advertising I ever saw). It was funny. From the silliness of the bug-eyed alien gangster running for political office to the balls-to-the-wall action of the time travel episode, I just enjoyed watching.
The special effects hadn't changed much since "UFO" and "Space: 1999" (same producer for all 3 series), and some of the actors couldn't handle light comedy or romantic tension, but Ted Shackelford, Nancy Paul and a few others made this an enjoyable show, doing for police in the future what "Baywatch" did for lifeguards in the present.
There were several American actors in this British production because the United States was the country of first publication.
