The best of the best.

An engaging and intense premise pits Colonel McQueen, the steely eyed, tough talking Commanding officer of the 58th, all alone against one of their deadliest foes: an invincible Chig fighter who has been picking off entire squadrons in previous episodes. This plays out with a classical soundtrack underscoring McQueen's pent up emotions over his painful personal life, and we get what was easily one of the best episodes in a very promising series.

To echo many other voices on here, I'll lament what a tragedy that such an ambitious, substantive show was (literally) cut off in its prime.

A woeful decision by whichever FOX execs partook in its demise. The show and its makers deserved better. I hope they know how well regarded it has become.

I caught this episode as a kid and never forgot it. James Morrison's grim, brooding performance as Colonel McQueen and his improbable battle against the unbeatable alien fighter-ace... the use of classical music in a pulse-pounding dogfight... just fantastic! I was also lucky enough to find the episode online (via Limewire) and it was every bit as good as I remembered.

"Space: Above and Beyond" was a good show with a great deal of plot depth that was doomed, I think, due to timing and... well, a crappy title. To this day, whenever I talk about the show, I can't help but wince when saying what I'll just abbreviate as SAAB.

Sidenote: I also caught James Morrison on another fantastic, underrated show called "Millennium". He appeared in one episode (opposite Lance Henrickson) as a criminal profiler.
