Quotes

Dylan Hunt: That's a nice excuse. Humans have been using it since the dawn of time: "I had to kill my enemies. It's what God wanted."
Rev: Just because humans use it as an excuse does not negate the possibility.
Dylan Hunt: What kind of divine plan requires the deaths of tens of thousands of people?
Rev: Tiger, tiger burning bright/In the forests of the night/What immortal hand or eye/Could frame thy fearful symmetry? Humans have been asking this question since the dawn of time. My people don't bother. We Magog know the Divine ...

Now I am become Death, destroyer of worlds
6 August 2013 | by picard-585-784088See all my reviews

Virtually every science fiction series uses time travel at some point - more than once usually. Generally, speaking from experience, they tend to be rather formulaic, weak episodes. But in this case Andromeda demonstrates what a time travel-themed episode should be like: As Andromeda accidentally goes back in time and ends up at the finishing stages of the Nietzchean uprising, Dylan has to decide whether to interfere and help the falling Commonwealth. Except the help he can offer is by every account merely a choice of the lesser evil, and comes at a heavy cost. Meanwhile, since this is still the beginning of the series, it does a lot for character development, also hinting at Trance's odd nature.

A rather uneven series, when Andromeda was good, it was great, and here the questions have no convincing answers one way or the other, philosophy fails to offer solace, and the cost of one's decisions weighs heavy like a neutron star on the shoulders of the protagonist. "Did we do the right thing? I have to believe it."
