Steve's stated reason for his not assisting Chris Williams on his final mission, and thus not being there to possibly save Chris from death, was merely that Steve had retired from the O.S.I., and so he didn't want to participate in any more missions. Although it is not brought out in the story, however, an obvious implication is that another reason that Steve would not have wanted to accompany Chris Williams, is that he would have felt awkward working alongside someone who was Jaime's new heartthrob.

This film is okay but I personally don't think it captured the spirit of the original Six Million Dollar Man series. The 1970s series featured almost no characterisation for Steve, and that is exactly how I liked it. I wanted to see Steve fight Bigfoot or the Death Probe or Fembots or cold war terrorists. This 1987 film reveals that Steve was a bad father and I just don't want to know or hear about that stuff!! The original series was about Steve: The Hero, so this depressing soapy stuff is just not welcome!
Adding to the problems with the reunion, the musical score is revolting!
But having said all this, there is the odd good moment with bad guy Martin Landau, Richard Anderson (Oscar) that is very pleasing, we have a few good action scenes and the new bionic boy/man storyline is well done.
Hit and miss best describes this TV movie.
