Specially trained detectives try to thwart a ring of international jewel thieves.

British-born actor Alan Caillou, who only has a minor role in this episode, went on to portray a character known as The Head in NBC's short-lived sci-fi comedy series Quark, which originally aired in the late 1970s. Despite its short run—only eight episodes were created—Quark has gained an impressive following over the years, and in response to popular demand, the entire series was released on DVD in 2008.
