LEGEND

LEGEND starring Richard Dean Anderson and John de Lancie

Legend was a science fiction Western television show. . It was Richard Dean Anderson's first major role after the successful MacGyver series, and also starred John de Lancie, best known for his role as "Q" in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Ernest Pratt, a gambling, womanizing, hard-drinking writer has created a dashing literary hero, Nicodemus Legend, the main character in a series of wildly imaginative dime novels set in the untamed West. Because Pratt wrote the novels in the first person and posed as Legend for their cover art, many readers believed that Pratt was Nicodemus Legend.

In the pilot episode, when Pratt learned that Nicodemus Legend has been impersonated and a warrant issued for his arrest, he travels to the scene of the incident to clear the name of his hero. Pratt meets up with an impersonator and great admirer of his tales, the eccentric European scientist Janos Bartok--who had been Thomas Edison's research partner--and his assistant Huitzilopochtli Ramos, who'd taken every single course Harvard University had to offer.

Bartok "borrowed" the Legend persona in order to help the townspeople of Sheridan, Colorado. They enlist the reluctant Pratt to their cause, and show him how their scientific expertise and outlandish inventions (frequently based on ideas from Pratt's books) can bolster the impression that Pratt really is Nicodemus Legend. Pratt reluctantly agreed to assume the persona of his literary creation and to live as the image he created of an adventurous man. Together, they adventured throughout the West solving mysteries, capturing wrong-doers, and making scientific discoveries. Along the way they meet some of history?s greatest heros including Mark Twain, General George Custer, Wild Bill Hickock to name a few.
