Plot Summary: In the distant future, mankind has colonized other planets in the universe. While many planets lived in peace, the planet Jerra has been ravaged by decades of war. Geist is an M.D.S. (Most Dangerous Soldier), an enhanced human with unsurpassed combat capabilities and an insatiable lust for battle. Because of his uncontrollable nature, Geist is cryogenically frozen and locked in a satellite. Several years later, the satellite crashes and Geist wakes up from his sleep to engage in another war. This time, to help the army stop the planet's central computer from activating a doomsday device that will lead to total annihilation of all life on Jerra.

Comment:
Funded and co-produced by Central Park Media, M.D. Geist: Director's Cut includes over five minutes of footage added to the original 1986 release, including new intoduction and ending sequences that lead the way to M.D. Geist II: Death Force.
M.D. Geist himself was the corporate mascot (a.k.a. "spokesmecha") of U.S. Manga Corps from 1990 to Central Park Media's demise in 2009.
