hunted by the totalitarian government that rule the planet.
The first episode is the pilot titlted The Crash - The Spindrift, Suborbital Flight

Earth. After pilots Steve and Dan are almost run over by a giant-sized car, they
realize something is amiss. As they prepare to take off, they are picked up by a
giant boy but manage to escape. With their power cells low, they land again.
Fitzhugh, an embezzler tries to escape but loses his money to a giant cat. Valerie
follows Steve and both are captured by a giant entymologist.
Fitzhugh threatens Dan with a gun to force him to lift off, but Dan calls his bluff
and he and Mark go after their captured comrades. Mark creates a diversion which
gives Dan time to free the captives, and they escape. The rest of the passengers
provide a distraction when the giant chases after them, but they escape in a sewer
pipe into a junkyard, where they just manage to avoid a giant-sized dog Next is
Ghost Town - Chased by a giant tramp, Barry is knocked out by an electrical force
field. When Fitzhugh and Valerie come back with the others, he is gone. They manage
to get through the force field, which is turned back on behind them. They then find

town that is mysteriously absent of people.
The next episode is Framed - While in a park trying to recover the lens from a giant
camera to power their solar batteries, Steve and Fitzhugh witness the photographer
accidentally kill his model during a struggle. He spots them and they flee down a

out the fire, then passes out. The photographer frames him for the murder. For
reasons best known to himelf, Steve tries to bring the real culprit to justice.
