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 »
And not just Outbreak. The Burning Zone had its share of quasi-supernatural phenomena as well. A series about a dedicated group who seem to be some special unit of the CDC, it was also a clear attempt to cash in on the enormous and cultish popularity of the X-Files. By mixing a little more science with a lot less conspiracy and things that go bump in the night, the show was interesting but not as enthralling as some of its peers. Still, I tried not to miss it when it was one - catch it on a rerun if you can, and if you like The X-Files, the movie Outbreak or CSI, this might be for you.
