The Battle begun in the Miniseries 'V' continues. The war is told from the view point of the resistance group based in Los Angeles, CA as they struggle to find weaknesses of the aliens they can exploit. In addition, not all the aliens feel their invasion was right, and also work to stop the war. Written by

The reptilian alien hybrid baby prop made a reappearance (its blue eyes changed to red) in an episode of the short-lived spin-off V (1984) TV series. Years later, George Clooney used the alien baby prop in a prank on the set of ER (1994), in a scene involving a "blue baby." See more »

Diana, sex for favors is as old as ambition. And sex is much too fragile a platform to support your ambition.
You seem to have done well for yourself.
That's because I've controlled my ambition. You might reflect that your... lover... has sent you 65 million light-years away from him.
Hardly an indication that he can't bear to be apart from you.

I remember this TV event well. It was big news in the spring of 1984. This mini-series aired over 3 separate nights. I found the characters to be well developed and the story held my attention. I saw this mini-series before the first mini-series and was able to pick up the story and follow it without feeling as though I were missing key parts to the story. My only complaint is similar to the other reviewers and that is that the final scene which involves the resistance and the human-alien offspring Elizabeth trying to avert a self destruction sequence on the mother ship. I, and my friends, found the ending to be a bit simplistic and somewhat anti climatic. However don't let this or other reviewers prevent you from watching this mini-series. It is an excellent story. It is almost as good as "V" and much better than V: THE SERIES. In my opinion the story should have ended here. V: THE SERIES never lived up to the two mini series and damaged the storyline.
