Quotes

Emily Francisco: [explaining to Sikes their "different" way saying grace before eating] It's a remembrance of Andarko & Celine, a male & female who lived a long time ago and sacrificed themselves to save millions. We try to live by their example. We touch our fingers to each of our two hearts. Then reverse them to show that the male & female are interchangeable. We touch our heads to bring purity and goodness within us.

Lovely series
18 January 1999 | by JJFabbsySee all my reviews

I love this series, it's a shame it didn't last too long. Great acting by the main cast, and most importantly GREAT STORIES :)

Thank god the Alien Nation universe is still being continued through TV movies.

The relationship between George and Sikes is fun to watch, as they get closer and closer as friends.

The alien culture is also great, and believable.

A joy to watch.
