Storyline

This series features the characters from the two mini-series about aliens coming to Earth claiming to be friends but in reality have an ulterior motive. The aliens may have been beaten in the mini-series but there are still a lot of them out there. In this series, Nathan Bates, the industrialist who manufactures the biological weapon that was used to defeat the aliens, wants to get his hands on the aliens' technology, so that he could profit from it, makes a deal with Diana, the alien leader. Rebel leaders, Mike Donovan, Ham Tyler, and Julie Parish know that Diana can't be trusted, so they are constantly trying to figure out what Diana is up to and stop her.

Trivia

It is claimed in one of the V novels, that the Visitor technology was stolen from an alien species that the Visitors were fighting against. The Tzikk. The space craft, the weapons, the shuttles, everything they utilise. And that the serious environmental difficulties were caused due to a last ditch effort by the Tzikk to inflict maximum damage by sending a mothership on a collision course with the Visitor home planet which on impact caused nuclear devastation on a level never before witnessed. The only way to survive was to capture the enemy vessels. One of the female visitors who was against the Earth invasion had a medal for taking part in this battle. The Tzikk were eventually wiped out. See more »

Goofs

Certain main characters' immediate family, notably Robin's two younger sisters and Elias' father Caleb, were left alive at the end of V: The Final Battle, but are never mentioned in the ongoing series. See more »

Quotes

[Nathan Bates is apparently collaborating with the Visitors]
Mike Donovan: We know Bates is in bed with Diana.
Willie: Really? I did not know that.
Elias Taylor: It's a figure of speech, Willie.
Willie: With Diana... one never knows.

The Visitor's Voices - Where'd it go??
18 August 2004 | by AslenPaigeSee all my reviews

I just got my copy of V The Complete Series. I had forgotten about all the 80's make-up and Diana's crazy variations on the standard Visitor uniform. Now don't misunderstand me, I still love anything to do with the Visitors, even down to the ridiculous deus ex machina that is the StarChild. But there is one thing about The Complete Series that aggravates the crap out of me. Suddenly, NONE of the visitors have the strange voice, and I mean none - not even a trace. I have always felt that you can detect the early rumblings of decline of this series about 10 minutes into Final Battle. The Complete Series takes the decay up to quick rot. Martin in plaid flannel and a hunter's vest!? Because NBC(?) wouldn't allow Kenny Johnson to take the time he needed to produce another mini-series that probably would have been fantastic, they took the idea and fobbed it off on less talented, cheaper people.

So....back to my original point- is it just me, or is there simply NO voice? Sorry to be so long winded!
