A year after Liberation Day, courtesy of the red-dust bacteria, the humanoid, lizard-like aliens develop a resistance to the micro-organism and try to regain control of the Earth--only now some humans are knowingly working with them.
A scientist who has created a super helicopter has defected to Libya and taken the machine with him. A secretive government agency hires an ex-Vietnam War pilot to go to Libya, steal the chopper and bring it back.

The Battle begun in the Miniseries 'V' continues. The war is told from the view point of the resistance group based in Los Angeles, CA as they struggle to find weaknesses of the aliens they can exploit. In addition, not all the aliens feel their invasion was right, and also work to stop the war. Written by

Chris Farber was originally supposed to have the last name of "Faber", but Michael Ironside kept pronouncing "Farber", so they changed it. (This is why scripts and books will often have Faber rather than Farber). See more »

Diana, sex for favors is as old as ambition. And sex is much too fragile a platform to support your ambition.
You seem to have done well for yourself.
That's because I've controlled my ambition. You might reflect that your... lover... has sent you 65 million light-years away from him.
Hardly an indication that he can't bear to be apart from you.

This was the perfect sequel to the original miniseries about the aliens who arrive on earth and establish a fascist government there, only to be met with a successful resistance movement. The cast was first-rate, as Michael Ironside was a perfect addition to Marc Singer, Robert Englund, Faye Grant, and co. The suspense and overall storyline were first-rate as well.
I loved the series when I was a kid, but like it even better now that I know more about the undertones and historical allusions. (Nazi takeover of Europe, McCarthyism, etc.) This is a must for sci-fi fans.
*** 1/2 out of ****
