1982-The Phoenix

He was a messenger from an alien world. He had extraordinary powers. He lasted five episodes.
This very short lived series featured Bennu, a benevolent ancient alien visitor to our world who was buried in a sarcophagus in Peru for over 1000 years. Freed from his tomb, he searched for his partner Mira, also buried in an ancient site somewhere in North America. Along the way he has to avoid Yago, an evil alien like himself, and a government agent chasing him Fugitive-style.
Heavily influenced by Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods books.
Judson Scott starred in this series, known primarily from his role in Star Trek II. He guested on several Trek episodes as well as a number of other genre series and is a regular on the convention circuit.
