Plot

Salvage 1 Salvage 1 The Vulture

The pilot centers on Harry Broderick (Andy Griffith) who owns the Jettison Scrap and Salvage Co. and is a specialist in reclaiming trash and junk to sell as scrap. His dream is to recover equipment left on the moon during Apollo Program missions. In the shows' opening title narration, Harry states:

I want to build a spaceship, go to the moon, salvage all the junk that's up there, bring it back and sell it.

He invites the former astronaut Addison "Skip" Carmichael (Joel Higgins) and NASA fuel expert Melanie "Mel" Slozar (Trish Stewart) to assist him in this effort.

Broderick and his ragtag crew complete their mission and go on to further adventures in the subsequent series.

The Vulture

Harry builds a spaceship dubbed Vulture, made completely from reclaimed salvage and powered by a chemical called monohydrazine. The main body of Vulture is composed of a Texaco gasoline semi-trailer tank truck with a cement mixer as the capsule. This is augmented with three shorter rocket boosters placed 120 degrees around the main tank.

Production

Science fiction author Isaac Asimov was the show's scientific adviser.
