Created by Dr. Mordecai "Mo" Sahmbi (Peter Donat), the TRAX project (Trans-Time Research & Development) illegally transported criminals 200 years into the past to avoid prosecution.

After sending a number of criminal cronies to the 20th Century, Sahmbi sent himself back into time. Hot on their heels was police officer Captain Darien Lambert (Dale Midkiff) from the Fugitive Retrieval Section [Sambhi killed Lambert´s lover in a shoot-out]. Darien's mission: travel back in time to 1992 to apprehend and return fugitives who had time-warped from his era.

"It began in the future. A time machine called TRAX, criminals who vanish, and a lawman who must pursue into the past. Now he is among us, a special breed of man. He has one weapon and a computer called Selma. With her, he will travel through our world, searching for fugitives from his own, knowing he cannot go home until he has found them all. His name is Darien Lambert and this is his story."  -- Opening Narration

To subdue his suspects, Darien used a futuristic weapon that looked like a small garage-door remote control called an MPPT (Miniature Pellet Projection Tube). It shot imperceptible-sized pellets which osmoses through the skin in a glow of blue light. The pellets rendered a person stunned for a few minutes (or hours) and prepared them for teleportation back to the future.

Blue pellets knocked a person out for 2 minutes, green pellets for 3 hours. Red pellets contain TXP, the chemical required to send the fugitive back to the 22nd century.

The injection of the TXP substance helped align the molecular structure of the person being transported so that they could withstand the rigors of time travel. Once injected with TXP, S.E.L.M.A (Darien's portable computer) directed a transmission tone to notify TRAX control that the retrieved criminal was ready for transport.

Darien used classified ads placed in the Washington Post to indicate a specific location of the fugitive. The classified ads were Darien's only means of communication with the future. Darien cannot return until the mission is completed, since TRAX only allows two trips.

Another weapon in Darien’s arsenal was a million dollar experimental tranquilizer gun called Cody.
