The Commonwealth vessel Andromeda, captained by Dylan Hunt, responds to an urgent distress call to find itself lured into a trap. Nietzschean warships surround them and open fire. Captain Hunt, in a last ditch effort, evacuates the ship and maneuvers toward a nearby black hole. Hunt's first officer, Rhade, a Nietzschean himself, betrays Hunt and attempts to kill him, but Hunt perseveres, killing Rhade in the process. Time dilation near the black hole slows time for the Andromeda and Dylan until a freighter tows it out 300 years later. Dylan now must fight off the band of scavengers attempting to claim his ship as salvage. Written by
Beka's ship is named the Maru. The Japanese word 'maru' means 'circle' and is traditionally added to the name of any non-military ship. So, if you wanted to name a ship after Pikachu the name would become 'Pikachu Maru'. See more »
When Captain Dylan shoots the renegade officer, there's a explosion around his belt buckle. When he lies on the floor, the impact seems to be high on his chest. See more »
I have watched many sci-fi movies and TV series. I myself am a writer of science fiction. The beginning to Andromeda is unparalleled. The first show was well done, but not the best of the shows. I would venture to say that as the season went on, it became apparent that Andromeda was going be a powerhouse. Under the Night was frightening and broad in scope. This made the show as good if not better than the epic that would come a few years later...the remake of Battle Star Galactica, one of my favorites from my younger years. I give a 10-10 to Andromeda the first episode...actually I'd have to say that season was a 20.
