Matt and George investigate a series of strange occurences involving newcomers, who are found to be programmed to carry out someone's dirty work. The method by which they are brainwashed dates back to the slave ship's rebellion group, the Udara, who we find Susan is a part of. Susan and George's lives are further disrupted when Buck enrolls in the police academy. Written by

The long time President of The Alien Nation Appreciation Society, Pete Chambers, has a cameo role in this production as a Vagrant called Cliff Hanger. It was a thank-you from Producer Kenneth Johnson for all his work. Pete Chambers's face also appears on a wanted poster in Alien Nation-Millennium. See more »
AlienNation was an excellent show that really went beyond just scifi images of aliens. I was to my memory the first sci-fi show where the culture of the aliens was just as important as the actual beings themselves. To this end, often they came up looking superior or more advanced then the humans they were now coexisting with. Having that come up continuously was kind of a turn off, but here is where we see the almost perfect and advanced veneer of the aliens peel away as we explore the darkest crevices of Tenctonese society and history. The Udara: a collective of Tenctonese slaves dedicated to destroying the "Overseers" at any cost resurface in the most controversial and frightening of fashions. This not only proves troublesome for the humans as the Udara are now connected to killings in Los Angeles but the sinister history of the Udara even reaches into heart of the Francisco family. Though the formula for the Udara is not anything new the insertion of this style of subterfuge into the increasingly perfect "new age" world of the Tenctonese and their long suffering status as alien flotsom was a master stroke. It was good to see that these perfect little aliens that fell to Earth and wanted all the humans to drop everything in order to make them feel loved, needed to clean up their own houses and affairs and reflect on the injustice and horror they put themselves through for once. This was AlienNation at its most mature state and its a shame it never lasted beyond the movies.
