In the mid 23rd Century, the Earth Alliance space station Babylon 5, located in neutral territory, is a major focal point for political intrigue, racial tensions and various wars over the course of five years.
The tyrants who rule the Light Universe pass their essence onto their successor upon their demise, while their still-conscious brains are kept in a vault; their chief resource is The Lexx (Tom Gallant), the most-powerful mobile weapon in the universe, which can only be commanded by the keeper of the hand-key. The previous incumbent wiped out the Brunen-G race, except for Kai (Michael McManus), who he kept in a state of amnesiac suspended animation, to be revived by proto-blood for short periods, and used as an assassin. Into this background comes anti-hero Stanley H. Tweedle (Brian Downey), an ignored non-entity clerk, who misses an appointment and is branded a criminal. In the dungeons, overweight Zev (Eva Habermann) has been convicted of not fulfilling wifely duties, and is being transformed into a gorgeous, svelt love-slave. Meanwhile, captured terrorist Thodin (Barry Bostwick), due for public execution, escapes with his gang's help, and causes chaos, setting into motion Tweedle's ...Written by

The unlikely paring of Germany and Canada resulted in "Lexx: the dark zone stories" four telemovies which spawned the hit cult TV series simply named "Lexx". The movies themselves remain pinacles of the alternative sci-fi genre. The first episode sees Stanley H Tweedle (A security guard who accidently destroyed 94 reform planets, played to perfection by Brian Downey), Zev Belringer of B3k (A young woman who was transformed into a love slave for
failing to perform her wifely duties, a freak accident occured during her transformation leaving her part Cluster lizard; portrayed in her first incarnation by Eva Habermann), Kai (an emotionless undead assasin, played by Michael McManus) and 790 (the robot who worked on Zev was decapitated and it's head given the "falling-in-love" part of the transformation thus 790 fell madly in love with his subject; voiced to perfection by series writer Jeffery Hirschfield) unite by chance on "The Cluster" the planet ruled by almost eternal His Divine shadow who rules the universe, and accidently steal the LEXX (a 10 kilometre long dragonfly, also the most powerful weapon ever built/grown). After their intial escape from the Orwellin-like rule of His Shadow the "crew" escape into the dark zone, a paraell uinverse of chaos. The show is not only well designed, written and acted it also manages to combine genres such as horror, comedy, sci-fi and fantasy all at once. The regluar cast perform wonderfully in one hell of a love triangle: Stan wants Zev, Zev wants Kai but Kai is dead and wants nothing. While 790 wants to kill Stan (and any other living male Zev comes in contact with) find a body and have Zev all to himself. So if you want some thing a bit diffrent to Star-trek, something a bit more on the edge you'll find it and a whole lot more in Lexx. Check out the series where things become a whole lot more weird!
