A cheapjack knockoff of THE TERMINATOR (which it even mentions) and ROBOCOP, R.O.T.O.R. (the acronym stands for Robot Officer Tactical Operation Research, if anyone cares) is about a sophisticated robot being developed by Dr. Barrett Coldyron (Richard Gesswein) for the Dallas police.

R.O.T.O.R. is mistakenly activated and hits the street looking for criminals on whom to exercise its programmed instruction: "Judge and execute." Coldyron, joined by colleague Dr. Steele (Jayne Smith), sets out to capture and deactivate the deadly robot. The performances by Gesswein and Smith
