Storyline

Dr. Randall Strong meets with a committee of senior government officials to try and convince them that extra-terrestrials are living among them. The committee was formed to deal with unforeseen external threats to the United States but Strong is facing a skeptical audience. He points to experiments by Dr. Simon Kress on eggs brought to Earth in Martian soil the previous year. Strong believes some of those creatures are now on the loose and multiplying rapidly. He also points to several other incidents: the destruction of the Mars lander on it's return to Earth; an artifact that turned a young woman into a killer; a house that was supposedly made up of non-terrestrial organic material. There are more examples but little sympathy. Written by garykmcd

Quite an Embarrassment
20 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is certainly pathetic. When I saw this for the first time back in 1995, I thought that this would be the death knell of the series. They had run out of money and interest. I was saddened because some of the episodes in the first year showed promise. As it turns out, the series went on for seven years and there were some pretty impressive shows included. This particular one is a shameless effort to draw a few scenes from the first season and turn it into a convoluted plot. A nervous man meets before a subcommittee with a wild story of alien invasion. The head of the committee played by Daniel J. Travanti, formerly of "Hill Street Blues," tries to head him off at every pass. Following is a series of film clips from totally unrelated episodes. They did ignore the second one, "Valerie 13," and the later "I, Robot" because I guess they couldn't work robots or androids into the plot. The rest is so poorly orchestrated that it sadly falls on its face. I suppose they were counting on us fans hanging in there until they could get Season 2 off the ground. I could go into each of the offerings that were invaded for their life blood, but suffice it to say that it never works because no connection can be made that would make rational sense.
