Taking Adams from his base in Coronado to far-flung corners of the world in search of justice, including London, New Orleans and Honolulu on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. Among the many guest stars who seek his help are Doug McClure, DeForest Kelley, Beverly Garland, Connie Hines, Sue Ann Langdon and Argentina Brunetti.
