Delos Corporation was the world's largest and most powerful multi-national
company. Among its many enterprises was the futuristic amusement park, Westworld,
where visitors were waited on by sophisticated robots that looked and acted
real people. With their help, Westworld's visitors could live out their
the mad scientist, Simon Quaid, who with Joseph Oppenheimer, had invented these
life-like robots for Delos. Quaid, an unstable genius, decided to reprogram his
children "to take over the world (what else!) and turn it into a utopian" society
under his guidance. Charge with foiling this fiendish plot were John Moore, head of Delos Security, and his
Pamela Williams. Actually, Quaid's efforts were thwarted more by this series'
viewers than by anything else. There were so few of them that it was canceled
after only three episodes.
Westworld" was an offshoot
of the 1973 movie Westworld, in which the robots ran
amok (with no explanation why) and destroyed the amusement park, killing many of the guests in the
process. Yul Brynner, as one of the robots, was the star of the movie and was
its only cast member to appear in its sequel, Futureworld.
