As a further point of revenge he places one of his robots on board the deadliest nuclear sub in the US navy which introduces a confusing flip of scenery and time zones.
Standing between that crisis (the destruction of the Delos building — and a sizeable portion of Los Angeles) is the hero of the series, the security chief, cool band Mr. Moore (Jim McMullan). He is stationed on board the sub and must discover which man is the robot. Each robot, it is explained, has a particular weakness and can be destroyed only by locating that weakness.
