With Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) occupied elsewhere, Iolaus (Michael Hurst) heads to Attica for some r-and-r. Upon his arrival, Iolaus is pressed into service to impersonate his dissolute look-alike Prince Orestes (also Michael Hurst), thereby preventing Orestes' brother, Minos (Robert Pollock), from stealing the throne. As part of the masquerade, Iolaus must go through with an arranged marriage with the beautiful but icy Princess Niobe (Lisa Ann Hadley). Yes, it's The Prisoner of Zenda, Hercules-style, complete with the climactic sword duel.
