A scientist experimenting with teleporter technology manages to merge himself "The Fly"-style with an experimental probe that is designed to adapt automatically to any threat. The scientist is then recruited by a secret government agency to go on missions. In his first mission, the scientist has to deal with a rogue scientist who has rigged his island fortress with death traps. As the probe technology adapts itself to higher and higher threat levels, the scientist becomes less and less human. Written by <>

HEY!!! CBS!!! Get this out on DVD NOW, and reserve me a copy!!!!!!!!!!!! I watched my VCR tape till it's worn out. It's worth watching again and again. It's outrageous that you didn't create the series. You aired it at the wrong time. Put it back on the air and request a new vote for a series and this time advertise it large! Of all the SciFi series that are being aired at this time I believe Infiltrator would compete well with the best of them. You missed out on a great series. I would rather have seen Scott Bakula in an Infiltrator series than Quantum Leap, and I love Quantum Leap... Scott did great as Professor Sam Beckett. I have 316 original (Non-pirated) DVDs in my collection, and most of them are SciFi.
