Synopsis

In another pilot to a prospective series, Robert Conrad is an aging Marine Corps pilot who is grounded and, rather than become a desk jockey, agrees to take over the running of his old alma mater, a military school that has gone to seed. With his long-time aide, Red West (Conrad's real-life buddy and frequent screen sidekick), he proceeds to shape up the young misfits with his strict, no-nonsense approach. This appeared to be TV's youth-oriented response to theatrical movies of the time about military academies, like "Taps" and "Lords of Discipline."
