Storyline

The Dorcons - the most powerful race in the galaxy - have detected a Psychon on Alpha, who the Dorcons have been hunting for centuries. Due to the unusual body chemistry of the Dorcon anatomy, when infused with the brain stem of a Psychon the result is immortality for the Dorcon subject. The elderly leader of their race is awaiting Maya's brain stem, so she is abducted. Koenig becomes a stowaway on their ship to try and stop them.

Trivia

A third season of the show had been planned running concurrently with a spin-off starring Catherine Schell as Maya. Unfortunately, not enough stations had put in renewal orders for the following season. It was rumored that had the show continued into a third season, Tony Anholt would've passed it up. See more »

Goofs

Maya states that she is the last living Psychon, but a recent episode featured a member of her race - Dorzak - who was a prisoner of the Crotons. See more »

Quotes

Malic: So you got the Psychon?
Consul Varda: Yes, Malic.
[Varda begins to walk away]
Malic: Wait! You will carry out the brain stem transfer?
Consul Varda: [laceratingly sarcastic] No. No, Malic, we went to all that trouble for no reason.
