Jesse the Intergalactic Warrior -
Visitor from another planet on the sci-fi series HARD TIME ON
PLANET EARTH/CBS/1989. Jesse (Martin Kove) was an exiled
extraterrestrial warrior criminal transformed into human form
and sentenced to live on Earth by an intergalactic court. Only
when he could control his violent tendencies and learn the
qualities of compassion and kindness would this outworlder be
returned to his home planet. Jesse's activities were monitored
by an unusual parole officer known only as Control (Danny Mann)
that looked like a flying conch shell with a large eyeball.
Walking the streets of Los Angeles and beyond, Jesse attempted
to understand his new environment; and along the way help those
in distress with his finely honed fighting skills. Jesse derived
his name from the letters sewn on a uniform he procured for
clothing when he first arrived on Earth.
