John Dine is a well educated man who has been the captain of the boxing team at Princeton. He is rebuilt through plastic surgery to resemble that of OSI agent Steve Austin. The plan is for him to take photos of secret files which concerns the Omega Project of Oscar Goldman. This project investigates the most advanced laser technologies with holographic targeting.
Dine is however caught, then run over, and killed in the street. Austin is naturally curious as to why someone would have impersonated him. Getting a lead on the gang's activities, he uses the opportunity to impersonate his own impostor.
