After Colonel Steve Austin fails to retrieve the contents of a safe owned by arms dealer Arlen Findletter, he takes up a friendly offer of a vacation in the Bahamas. There, he runs into Soviet Agent Alexi Kaslov and his lovely assistant Katrina Volana, who also happen to be out to find Findletter. Is it a coincidence, or was Steve's trip all part of one of Oscar Goldman's missions?

Some changes to the show's premise were made between "The Six Million Dollar Man" (1973) movie and the sequel. In the first film, Austin is described in dialogue as being a civilian, but in this film this is changed to him being an Air Force Colonel (and dialogue confirms this version of the character was a Colonel at the time he walked on the moon). As noted above, Oliver Spencer (Darren McGavin) was replaced by Oscar Goldman (Richard Anderson) (a character from the original Cyborg novels) and a new actor plays Dr. Rudy Wells. In addition, the organization, for which Colonel Austin works, is now the OSI, not the OSO. See more

Listen, pal, the next time you want me on a mission, you lay it all out on front, or I'll kick your department so high you'll need Sky-Lab to get it down.
Among the extra footage is a brief flashback montage (seen in part 2 when Austin is waking up from being tranquilized) that shows footage from the first TV movie and, because this edit was made later in the show's run, snippets of footage from later seasons. As a result, in part 2 of the re-edited version of 'Wine, Women & War' it is possible to see Martin E. Brooks
, who played Dr. Rudy Wells beginning in the second season, Martin Balsam
, who played Wells in the first TV movie, and Darren McGavin
