Alien Nation: Dark Horizon was an "entertaining piece."
2 January 2006 | by MunecatristeSee all my reviews

This is the only Alien Nation made for t.v. movie that I believed has been released. I have it on VHS and I have played it so many times that there are lines running through it. I thought it was a very good follow up to the series (I was bummed when it was canceled)and I'm looking forward to the other movies being released, hopefully on DVD. The movie explained that although the slave ship had landed five years previously, slave over-seers were still looking for their "lost cargo." They sent an aggressive over-seer to scout out the location and hopefully retrieve some of the slaves. Needless to say, the survivors of the ship were not going willingly back to a life of servitude and humiliation. The movie was a entertaining piece.
