Plot summary[edit]

Marine Colonel MacKenzie "Mac" Casey (Whitaker) discovers an apparent plan by General R. Pendleton Lloyd (Robards) and Secretary of Defense Charles Potter (Josef Sommer) to remove President William Foster (Waterston) from office and replace him with Vice President Walter Kelly (Dakin Matthews), who they feel would be more willing to do their bidding. Casey and Foster desperately seek evidence before the coup occurs. They encounter a setback when Attorney General Arthur Daniels (Lawrence Pressman) is murdered. The coup attempt is foiled with the aid of President Foster's Chief of Staff Betsy Corcoran (Dana Delany) and some well-placed Russian friends.
