Storyline

An androgynous alien species called the Taelons arrive on earth, claiming to be companions of humanity, putting an end to crime, illness, and famine. Some are suspicious of the Taleons, and form a resistance movement. The resistance soon learned that the force that sustains the Taelons are breaking down, and they are using humans as test subjects in experiments to help save their species. The initial focus of the show was Commander William Boone and his partner, Captain Lili Marquette, who worked for both the Taelons and the resistance. After Boone was killed, the show introduced a new protagonist, Major Liam Kincaid, and began to play on the strengths of its ensemble cast. Written by Ronos

Trivia

After "Star Trek: The Original Series (1966)" was cancelled in 1969, Gene Roddenberry began working on ideas for new sci-fi series, among which was this series. "20th Century Fox" was interested in developing the pilot in the late 1970s but Roddenberry became busy with the "Star Trek" movies and later "Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987)." See more »

Quotes

Agent Ronald Sandoval: Some things are best left unsaid, or unseen.
Major Liam Kincaid: Thanks for the advice, but this is one memory I'd like to keep.
Agent Ronald Sandoval: The problem with memories, Major, is that once you have them in your mind, it's very difficult to get rid of them.

goes nowhere
1 November 2006 | by ricknorwoodSee all my reviews

The pilot episode written by Gene Roddenberry is excellent, but the show goes nowhere, all hugger mugger and no real story. Roddenberry's basic idea, that contact between humans and superior aliens will not be all black and white but will be filled with ambiguities, is a good one. Later writers, however, think in terms of good aliens and bad aliens. The use of female actors to play androgynous aliens was a good idea, but in later seasons everybody except Da'an overdoes it. In the third season, there are a number of scripts by Howard Cheykin, who is an excellent writer, and who wrote some memorable episodes of The Flash TV series, as well as some great graphic novels. However, he is unable to do anything here, because he is locked in to what is really not a workable story line. I have not watched the fifth season, but I have read that it throws out most of what was established in the first four. For scifi completists only.
