The basic premise of Andromeda - man from an earlier era piecing civilization back together - was the subject of three earlier Roddenberry pilots: "Genesis II" starring Alex Cord, and "Planet Earth" and "Strange New World" starring John Saxon. See more »

In my opinion there haven't been many good sci-fi shows in the 90's/early 21st century. There are exceptions such as Stargate SG-1 and the awesome Babylon 5 but overall, I think the sci-fi shows have been poor. So it's refreshing to watch an action packed show like Andromeda.
When I watched the pilot episode of Andromeda I got the same feeling as when I watched Babylon 5. I knew that I was in for an awesome ride.
Kevin Sorbo makes a good Captain and he is supported by a brilliant cast. The good thing about this crew is that they are all different and possibly have their own agendas. The stories have been very good indeed.
Lets hope this runs as long as Babylon 5.
