Two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, live together on a peaceful planet known as Caprica, where a startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence brings about unforeseen consequences. A spin-off of the Sci Fi Channel series "Battlestar Galactica" set 50 years prior to the events of that show.
A small town in Kansas is literally left in the dark after seeing a mushroom cloud over near-by Denver, Colorado. The townspeople struggle to find answers about the blast and solutions on how to survive.
When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protects a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony of Earth.
Edward James Olmos,
An obvious bit of a spoof on the X-Files. But it seemed somewhat half-hearted. They could have really run with this, made it really humorous if they wished. But it feels like they couldn't really decide what they wanted to do.
Regardless, it is an interesting take on the "UFO Sightings" phenomena. It's a little of a "what if...", almost along the lines of a couple Twilight Zone episodes. Not completely bad, but this could have been far better than it was. I did like it when one of the characters introduced themselves as "Special Agent".
Perhaps JMS will have an opportunity to remake not only Babylon 5, but Crusade as well, cutting out some of the cheesiness, improving on both series' weaknesses. At that time maybe he can give this episode the push in the right direction.
