Based on a true story, Scorpion is a government group of geniuses with different skills who wage battle against today’s biggest threat – criminals using technology. Comprised of behaviour, mechanical and mathematical experts, the group is headed by a man who is a genius himself, Walter O’Brien (played by Elyse Gabel) and led by federal agent Cabe Callo (played by Robert Patrick).

As is the case with most geniuses the members of the group are not very in tune with the real world or people, so they count on the mother of gifted boy, Paige Dineen (played by Katherine McPhee) to help them navigate. The members of the group are gaining twofold by keeping the world safe while at the same time learning how to navigate in it.
