Thomas Remington Sloane III was the top agent for UNIT, an American counterintelligence team committed to destroying the international criminal organization KARTEL. Suave, romantic and brilliant, Sloane traveled all over the world to thwart the plans of KARTEL. With him was his trusted aide Torque, a six-foot, five-inch agent with a stainless steel hand that could be adapted to use a myriad of detachable gadgets.
Running UNIT headquarters, located behind a toy boutique, was The Director. His only accountability was to the President. At headquarters was a special lab that provided Sloane and Torque with all sorts of devices to help them in emergencies. Lab assistant Kelly, who usually demonstrated the latest devices, occasionally got involved with them on missions.
Sloane investigates when several men sabotage key U.S. defense projects. He discovers that Edward Denton (Robert Culp) uses a mind-controlling chemical to program the men. The drug is spread via the lipstick worn by Denton's henchwomen. To eliminate Sloane, Denton brainwashes his friend Michelle (Lee Purcell) into attempting to kiss him with a more poisonous form of lipstick.
Notable guest stars include: Roddy McDowall, Robert Culp, Morgan Fairchild and Eric Braeden.
