An experimental military robot escapes after being struck by lightning and given human intelligence. He finds a home with madcap Stephanie Speck who believes he's an alien. Hot on their trail are scientists Newton Crosby and his assistant who must get to their creation before the army does, since its plan is to put Number 5 out of service permanently.
