Tekwar

TekWar is a Canadian science fiction, action-adventure television program based on the series of novels by actor and author William Shatner. The show stars Shatner and actor Greg Evigan. The program was filmed in and around the city of Toronto. In 2045 former police officer Jake Cardigan (Evigan) is released from cryo-detainment. Four years prior, Cardigan was framed for killing his fellow officers during a bust for the narcotic substance known as tek. While looking to clear his name, Cardigan is contacted by former colleague Sid Gomez (Eugene Clark), who currently works for Cosmos, one of the larger security firms of the era.

Owned by CEO Walter Bascom (Shatner), Cosmos has made one of its goals to take down the Tek Lords who deal the drug. Despite the circumstances connected to his incarceration, Bascom hires Cardigan to help defeat the Tek Lords in exchange for clearing his name. Cardigan teams up with Gomez and is assisted by Centra and Nika (Catherine Blythe and Natalie Radford), who supply technical support to both of the private investigators. During his tenure with Cosmos, Cardigan meets and becomes romantically involved with an android, Dr. Beth Kittridge. He also battles Sonny Hokori (Von Flores), the Tek Lord that originally framed him for the murders.

TekWar is executive produced by William Shatner. The program premiered in 1994 as four made-for-TV movies for the Canadian network CTV and in syndication in the United States. In 1995, the show's second season moved out of U.S. syndication and onto cable's USA Network. TekWar moved to the SciFi Channel in 1996 to run four unaired episodes not shown when both CTV and USA Network canceled the show in 1995.
