The show was remade in 1995 as a mini-series. As this was a remake, the David Vincent character in it is not the same from the old show, despite being played by the same actor. He's "David Vincent II" in the remake. See more »
Often, when the UFO is on the ground, no shadow is visible for certain sections of the ship, yet others cast a shadow, indicating part of the ship was already filmed and was blue-screened in later. See more »

This was a milestone series in my opinion - the acting was usually above average. Roy Thinnes was excellent - the way he shows his frustration when explaining the aliens is very good. Roy was cast perfectly for this series. I recently was able to buy all the episodes on DVD - just watched "Dark Outpost" - This is one of the best episodes as well as the first one.

Theme music excellent too (Dominic Frontiere I think)
WELL DONE ROY!!
