Tamlyn Tomita did both the pilot for "The Burning Zone" and Babylon 5 (1994) at the same time. When both pilots were picked up she chose "The Burning Zone" missing out on a four season run with "Babylon 5". She was replaced by Claudia Christian. See more »
A sure ratings looser for UPN, the Burning Zone was their freshman season solution to Fox's X-Files. Throw in a pinch of the controversial movie Outbreak and what you got was a "Disease of the Week" series with semi-paranormal overtones and alot of borish dialog in between. The story centers on a team of virologists, assembled by a typical (shadowy benefactor) for the purpose of rising to the challenge of biological catastrophies. They tried to mix in a "conspiracy" element (a further stab at X-Files) by dropping hints to a evil agency called "The Dawn" that were to prove responsible for a great number of the cases they had to solve, but it totally went nowhere. Fortunately the series didn't survive, but unfortunately the damage was already done. The Burning Zone lived on for a while on SciFi Channel until they decided it had outlived its usefullness and they eradicated it from their schedule. Simply not worth looking for unless you are a fan of any of the actors involved and you must see every speck of their work.
