Synopsis by Hal Erickson
After premiering as a two-hour episode of The Rookies, the weekly series S.W.A.T. made its official debut with this hour-long installment. The emphasis is on series regular Robert Urich, as Officer Jim Street. Anxious to avenge the ambush slaying of his partner Rob Duran (Taylor Lacher), Street joins the Special Weapons and Technical (SWAT) team headed by hard-nosed police lieutenant Dan "Hondo" Harrison (Steve Forrest). Before passing muster, however, the hotheaded Street must learn the value of teamwork -- especially during a tense climactic confrontation with the two criminal siblings who gunned down Duran.
