  • Troy and Dillion take a group of Galactican children to Earth and then three are poisoned by industrial waste. Dr. Zee in his magical new ship saves their lives.

    Environmentalism at its worst. That element almost totally ruins this episode. It is preachy, predictable, and more than anyone should have to stomach.

    Bright points include the accidental bank robbery, the over helpful store clerk that assisted Troy in purchasing the scout supplies, the children throwing apples on the sheriff and his men, the singing sequence while they were camping, and stealing yet another police car. One has to wonder if they kept doing that because Kent McCord used to play on Adam 12.

    The introduction of being able to jump higher than Earthers was interesting but inconsistent with the first three part episode. And please, one gets very tired of the flying motorcycles and the constant use of stock footage.

    Also, three of the super scouts are Larsen children.
