Lt. Col. Tyrus Cassius "TC" McQueen:
We thought we were alone. We believed the universe was ours. Until one night in 2063, on a Earth colony 16 light-years away, they struck. Now we're at war.

The credits changed mid-season because of pressure from the network that feared the audience wouldn't know what is going on. The new credits had a narration summarizing the show's story. The producers hated the second version. See more »
I've seen a lot of comments from people who hate this show, which is surprising. I can understand that it's not for everyone but I can't imagine thinking that someone would dislike it this much. To each his own.
In my opinion, this series was one of the best ever. It explored deeper themes than most shows would dare. It gave a more realistic view of war and the future of Earth than any other scifi or war show I have ever seen. Also, Glen Morgan and James Wong's appreciation of poetry really shows in this series.
If I had to describe "Space: Above and Beyond" in one word: Deep.
You may not believe me, or you may just think that I only say this because I am such a big fan. That's fine. But I truly believe that this show was good while it was on, and had the potential to be something great. Check it out if you can.
