Followup movie to the TV series about 250,000 aliens, or "Newcomers" as they are known, who have settled alongside the humans in California. Most of the Newcomers were slaves, and the Overseers are now looking for them. They send Ahpossno to earth to locate the slaves to take them back to the ship.Written by
Although this is a continuation of the series' final cliff hanger, the scene where Susan and Emily are poisoned, and the scene where Cathy tells Matt about it, are completely different. See more »
The US video release contains several very brief scenes not shown on its first release on Fox Television in the U.S. For example, there's a brief addition to the scene where Ahpossno boards his craft. After you see the trolly in LA go by following Ahpossno's departure from the mother ship, you see the delivery man buying the flowers, and showing hate for Newcomers. A scene shows Penny welcoming the Franciscos home after their hospitalizaion. See more »
This TV series was made in the mid 90s, but looks much older. The overall story of the alien slaves reaching the sunny shores of California is a good idea and may offer premises for both social comment and good drama. Unfortunately acting is so conventional, costumes and effects so poor that less than ten years after production this movie looks like an oldie. Hard core fans of science fiction (like myself) better watch an old Star Trek. At least, this was the original. 5/10 on my personal scale.
