This short-lived series, the first casualty of the 1990-1991 season, was sort of an environmental Mission Impossible. The team, organized by a dying billionaire concerned with the ecological balance of the environment, traveled all over the world using guerilla tactics to prevent ecological catastrophes. In the three episodes that aired they recovered stolen plutonium that was earmarked for nuclear weapons, stopped animal poachers from selling endangered species on the black market, and prevented unscrupulous developers from building housing on a toxic waste site. Their organization - Earth Alert Research Tactical Headquarters (E.A.R.T.H. for short) - was staffed by John, a trauma care expert; Carl, a maverick nuclear physicist who had become an environmental activist; Catherine, a marine biologist and expert on oil spills; Charles, a mercenary who was in it only for the money; and Diana, director of the Earth Alert Foundation that provided their funding.
