Five years into the future, five Odyssey astronauts and a NASA technician are setting up NASA's latest high tech satellite just outside of Earth's orbit. The five are: Chuck Taggart - a charismatic authoritative and stoic mission commander and former ace pilot, Kurt Mendel - a likable pompous horny quip-prone British science author and NASA's special celebrity guest on the flight who actually does know a lot about science and can be brave and cunning despite claiming otherwise, Neil Taggart - Chuck's young adult son and genuine computer expert, Sarah Forbes - a popular news anchor and TV reporter who's there to make an exclusive piece about the mission, and Angela Perry - Chuck's experienced co-pilot who's father is a powerful senator. Everything is going fine until the Earth is suddenly caught on fire and then implodes for no apparent reason. This horrifying mysterious event damages the crew's shuttle, which leads to the death of the technician and also leaves Angela badly hurt and ...
[V.O. intro from every episode except pilot]
We saw the Earth destroyed, and in a heartbeat everything and everyone we knew was gone. There were five of us, the crew of the space shuttle Odyssey, and we were the only survivors. A mysterious being who called himself The Seeker rescued us and sent us back in time. And now we have five years to live over, five years to discover who or what destroyed the Earth, five years to stop it from happening again.

Odyssey 5 is simply the smartest show on cable! In one commercial, the announcer says that it is the obvious heir to the X-Files. Well, in my opinion as a longtime X-Fan, Odyssey 5 is much better. Five times better, in fact! If I were not already a Showtime subscriber, I would be after catching a glimpse of this show. I can not stress enough what an awesome, entertaining, thought-provoking show this is. The setup: a shuttle crew of five orbiting the earth watch on as the planet is destroyed. They are then met by an alien who sends their minds back in time 5 years so that they can hopefully stop what is about to happen. During their research and efforts, they uncover a new life-form and somehow, somewhere, they have accidentally sped up the earth-destroying process! Catch the crew of Odyssey 5 as they struggle to save the earth and battle their own personal problems.
