The underwear clad gentleman Mel Porter meets on the road that fateful afternoon, is not really a man. He's both more and very different. Cirron, his home world, revolves around a sun light years away and his true form is more a figure of light then flesh and blood. Why and how he came here is a mystery, one that will have Mel digging through old family records and learning why her grandmother's bar is called "The Watchfire". Tracker is a job description and a calling for Daggon. In the worlds of the Migar Alliance, those who outlaw themselves are clever, strong and have abilities far beyond those of the usual Terran criminals. Unfortunately for us, when 218 aliens are sent through an experimental wormhole by a scientist with a scheme of his own, Daggon has his work cut out for him. He'll be up against the essence of the worst wearing the bodies of humans who had nothing to do with Zin's ultimate plan. Mel Porter is a restless woman who is trying to find answers to her own questions. ...Written by
Once there was a time - in the nineties of the last century - when a supernatural fighter, armed with a sword and long hair and played by Adrian Paul - took the heritage of "Highlander" Christopher Lambert and fought supernatural enemies on earth in a TV Series of the same name.
Ten years later on, the same actor, this time with short hair and without the sword, has to track down more supernatural enemies again on TV. This time, he's the "Tracker", comes from another time and space again, and has a super brain, super weapons and super power and tracks down several gangsters and killers with the same attributes all over the country... again, he's accompanied by some good-looking earthy Blondes and has to face the weirdest enemies in hard-fought fights after 45 minutes.
While the "Highlander" TV series was a big hit in Germany and was broadcast on RTL Television at prime time, "Tracker" runs on a smaller station early in the morning at 5am. It looks like a sci-fi remix of "Highlander" with some elements of "The X-Files", "Profiler", "Quantum Leap" and also with some "Star Trek" and cyberspace utopia. But all in all, it's a nice and entertaining series with some good ideas and a relaxed and cool Adrian Paul, whose biggest success will always be the long-haired man with the sword from the hills...
