Darryl Revok (Michael Ironside) has the same condition and is the head of an underground association of scanners that want world domination. When Vale is taken to Dr. Paul Ruth (Patrick McGoohan) as a result of supposed insanity, he's enlisted into a program that will involve him in a battle against his fellow scanners.

Unfortunately the side effects render the scanners incapable, so Forrester finds David Kellum (David Hewlett), a good, rational scanner who, unaware of his own powers, agrees to work with him. Will Kellum discover Forrestor's real motive and prevent the 'New Order' from being established?
