The two human leads graced the show with an Ivy League pedigree. Ron Harper (who played Alan) was a Princeton graduate and won a fellowship to Harvard, while James Naughton (Pete) was a graduate of Brown and Yale. See more »

This was a great show. Too bad the networks didn't allow this show to play out. If it had I would have loved to have seen how the characters would have developed as well as what the characters would have found in their travels. Also, this was my first exposure to Roddy McDowell, who was one of the most reliable actors in the history of film. Even though he took a lot of criticism for playing in both the films and the television series, he brought a lot of depth to the character of Galen.
