Dennis Haysbert, who you see everywhere these days, plays a judge who has been sent to a planet that the imperialists of earth have taken under their control. One of the indigenous aliens has killed some of the colonists and is standing trial for it. The killings took place when some of the miners, who are feasting off the natural resources, were at a settlement and took chunks of a valuable ore. Haysbert's character is the perfect judge. He is tough but fair. Unfortunately, the culture is a bit like the untamed West, and lynching has been the order of the day when it comes to the "uppity" natives. Threats are made, as are alliances. Because the people back on earth are suspicious of his motives, they send an attractive female android to keep an eye on him and make sure that he is following protocols. She is a humorous addendum to the story and they have a nice chemistry. Of course, he is committed to finding the truth about the murder charges which makes him pretty unpopular. It's a decent offering but a little too formulaic.
