Wilton Knight's estranged son Garthe has returned from Africa where he had been sentenced to three lifetime imprisonments. Together with his mother Elizabeth (Wilton's fourth wife) he manages to steal the formula to Kitt's Molecular Bonded Shell and applies it to a monster truck he calls Goliath. Garthe then sets out to destroy Michael Knight, the man he feels his father gave everything to that was rightfully his.

April Curtis, Bonnie Barstow's replacement, is introduced in this episode but is not explained why she is there. In reality, Patricia McPhearson, who played Bonnie, was written out due to disagreements with the producers but with lobbying by fans, David Hasselhoff (Michael Knight) and Edward Mulhare (Devon Miles), Bonnie was written back in. While April's departure wasn't explained, Bonnie's return appeared as returning from a university where she had been studying although this isn't exactly explained in the episode (Knight of the Drones Part 1 from season 3) where she was persuaded by Michael to return to the Foundation.
