Plot

In college studying archaeology, Dai Sawamura deciphered the figures on the Nazca Plain in Peru. Impressed by this feat, the Galactic Union Police recruited him and trained him to be Earth's third Space Sheriff, after which he was given the code name 'Shaider' in memory of an ancient warrior who defeated the villain Emperor Kubilai and brought down the Fuuma 12,000 years ago. When the Fuuma returns, Dai is deputized as he returns to Earth to battle the Fuuma.

For the Tagalog dub, Dai Sawamura was renamed Alexis, The Strange Dimension became known as the Time-Space Warp, & they even call Shaider a "Pulis Pangkalawakan" (Space Cop).   In 2007, the GMA Network would produce a loose sequel series with Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan. It was met with mixed reception from fans. It was also released in France in the 1980s as Capitaine Sheider (Captain Sheider) and its first 3 episodes were aired by TF1, however the series didn't reached the same success as Gyaban.
