ABOUT THE SERIES

       Steve Austin in an agent for the O.S.O.
       In 1972, noted science fiction writer Martin Caidin published an outstanding novel detailing the use of cybernetics. It was in this book that most people got their first exposure to words like 'cyborg', 'cybernetics' and 'bionics'. In that novel, an astronaut named Steve Austin, test-piloting a revolutionary aircraft, was critically injured in an horrendous crash. The government, through the services of the Office of Special Operations, chose this opportunity to test its cybernetics program by rebuilding the man better than he had been before. As a service to his country to repay for the high cost for the repairs, Austin is pressed into action as a agent.
       The next year Caidin followed up the first book with a sequel, Cyborg 2: Operation Nuke. That same year, three different pilots for a proposed television series was shown: "The Moon and the Desert" in March, "Wine, Women and War" in October, and "The Solid Gold Kidnapping" in November.
       In January of the next year, the actual series began as a mid-season replacement. The show would last 101 episodes with the final one airing in March of 1978. It would also produce three made-to-TV movies, shown in 1987, 1989, and 1994.
       The starring role of Steve Austin was admirably played by Lee Majors, a 33-year old actor who was already well known from his years as Heath Barkley in The Big Valley and who was co-starring as an assistant lawyer in Owen Marshall: Attorney at Law. In the show, the role of Oscar Goldman, operations head of OSO, was played by Richard Anderson.
       Lt. Col Steve Austin was a highly skilled Air Force pilot who was assigned to NASA for most of his military career. As lead pilot on Apollo 17, Austin was the last American to walk on the moon. With the reduction in the space program, Austin took a position with the test pilot program he had worked with prior to his NASA stint. It was while working with this group that the near fatal crash occurred that changed his life so much.
       While Austin's entire body was severely damaged in the accident, the major injuries that were corrected by the cybernetic wizardry of his friend, Dr. Rudy Wells, were two leg replacements, one new arm, and a new eye. While the entire matter of the change took considerable amount of time to accept, eventually Austin came around and began to use his new powers in the assistance of OSO and U.S. activities.
       *Note on the Organization:
       In the books, the organization that Austin worked for was the OSO. In the television show, however, the agency was the OSI, the Office of Strategic Intelligence, headed by Oscar Goldman.

BOOKS

Number of Books:10
First Appearance:1972
Last Appearance:1977

1 Cyborg Cyborg
Written by Martin Caidin
Copyright: 1972

No matter what you might feel of the television show, this is truly an awesome book to read. The whole issue of cybernetics is discussed at length. The trauma of a man suddenly becoming both less human and more powerful is fantastically presented. The writing is just superb. From an espionage aspect, the book doesn't even begin to branch into that area until well into the second half but when it does, it gives two complete missions. The first is to check out and disrupt the creation of a Soviet submarine base in Suriname. The second is to do the same for a Soviet air force base in the Red Sea area.

       The first Six Million Dollar Man adventure in comic book form was a very short satiric appearance in Scholastic's Bananas magazine in 1976. Since it is not canon, you can find it in the Parodies, Satires, and Pastiches section.
       That same year, Charlton Comics, which was surviving at the time by publishing tie-ins to television and movie hits, released TWO different series about the SMDM, one a 9-issue series of The Six Million Dollar Man comics between 1976 and 1978 and the other a 7-issue series of The Six Million Dollar Man "comic magazine" from 1976-1977. The former had one comic story in each publication while the latter had several comic stories and a couple text articles..

       Three and a half decades later, Dynamite Comics, in conjunction with noted film director and writer Kevin Smith, brought back the world of Steve Austin in a new re-telling of his origin and the first few missions. 26 issues were written. These were augmented by 5 issues in a storyline showing Steve Austin going up against Jaime Sommers.
       This series was concluded and followed by a short 6-issue series based more on the original television show, presenting what might have been its sixth season.

MY COMMENTS

       This is a rather interesting series, to say the least. It consists of nine books but four of the books were by the original author and were themselves originals while the other five were by different writers and were novelizations of teleplays from the TV show.
       The first book was obviously a total original - a completely unique blending of science fiction and espionage in a way that worked incredibly well.
       From there on, the series went downhill.
       I was a big fan of the television series but novelizations are never satisfying as they give the body without the soul, so to speak. They'll do only if nothing else is available. Thankfully, the original works of Mr. Caidin were wisely interspersed among the teleplays.

       Regarding the grade, had it been rated on the books by Mr. Caidin alone, it would have been a B+ or even an A-. Adding in the novelizations, however, dragged it down.
