[Season 1 !Season 2 !Season 3 !Season 4 !Season 5 ]
This episode starts with a crowd of terrans (along with a brass band) awaiting the arrival of an alien space-shuttle with a near-human alien aboard. Sound familiar? Yes, it seems that this has more than a passing resemblance to V: The Series ! The differences? Well, these aliens are called Taelons instead of Visitors, and the SPFX are 1990s CGI instead of 1980s models. That is about it, really. Of course, the lack of Jane Badler does not do it any good.
This series is credited as Created by Gene Roddenbury, and this episode is apparently written by Gene Roddenbury. His widow Majel Barret guest-stars as a doctor. The aliens seem more Vulcan than Visitor, but the plot is delightfully sceptical about their intentions.
Following directly on from the first ep, Boone decides to investigate his wife's death. He comes up with a theory, and discovers a shocking fact.
In true Roddenbury spirit, this was written by Star Trek: TOS writer DC Fontana. It concerns a teenage girl who is suicidal because ten years previously she lost her hands in a car crash. The Companions grow her new hands, but there are a couple of unpleasant side-effects. Firstly she perceives the aliens as Angels, and thus starts a new worldwide religion. Secondly, the aliens have a policy of covering up their failures ...
A super-genius serial killer breaks out of an asylum. Unfortunately, as part of his rehabilitation he was implanted with a CVI! Yes, Boone and Sandoval must track down a man who has the same powers that they do.
Our heroes need help. We get to meet the show's token black guy - a bookie named Marcus "Augur" Deveraux (Richard Chevolleau - ).
The killer acts out ancient Taelon mythology. It seems that, thanks to his dying CVI implant, he knows something about their secret agenda. And he knows what the Taelons fear.
The Sleeper will awake.
Boone and Lili ( Lisa Howard ) escort Da'an to a concert. Boone recognises the musician as a former girlfriend of his. He spends the rest of the episode obsessed with her. Lili is worried about him, and has Augur check up on the musician. This allows for some UST between Lili and Augur.
A gang of armed robbers steals some plutonium. Boone is put in charge of the investigation. Can he recapture the plutonium while under the influence of his obsession?
A small Amish town is beset by a series of suicides. Boone and Lili ( Lisa Howard ) investigate, and discover that Taelon technology is responsible.
Reference is made to Companion Reaction Syndrome, where humans could not come to terms with the existence of intelligent extra-terrestrial life and committed suicide.
Johnathan Doors reveals that he has faked his death. His intention is to provoke Earth into open rebellion against the Taelons.
The Taelons react by employing a Kristine Walsh type spokeswoman. She is in fact Doors replacement as head of his Mega-Corp. There is also a nosy reporter ( Kristin Lehman ) who wants to make a big story out of it all.
Lilli's shuttle is stolen by the Resistance. She and Boone must help Doors' men use it, before Sandoval and the Taelons can get it back. But without blowing their covers.
The humans want to use it to visit Mars. The Taelons know that human space travel is inevitable, but Zo'or (a hologram from the mothership) insists the Synod wants it prevented.
It turns out that Zo'or was right to worry. Doors' little recon plan includes more than Mars. He pinpoints the mothership, behind the Earth's moon ... and a far more frightening development!
A Skrell weapon goes astray. It has bonded with a weak-willed human, and uses him to its will. He has some say in the matter, and saves a friendly hooker ( Claudette Mink ) from a gang of thugs.
The companions order Sandoval to recapture the Skrell before it does too much damage. Boone and Lilli tag along, intent on saving the man it is attached to.
Da'an is kidnapped by some renegade ex-Special Forces troopers led by Nigel Bennett ( Lexx ). They want to trade him for some of their men who became the victim of botched experiments. However, Da'an decides to meditate himself to death rather than be a prisoner.
Zo'or and the Synod are willing to sacrifice Da'an, so they can use him as an excuse to increase control. Sandoval, however, has loyalty and FBI detective skills. He may be Da'an's only hope!
This is a sequel to the episode set in the Amish village, [Season 1, Episode 6] Float Like A Butterfly. The human rebels examine the alien probe, but it decides to defend itself.
Boone also looks over records of a human test subject who learned the Taelon language, but became a serial killer. Boone asks Da'an for permission to learn the Taelon language, and it is grudgingly given.
Sandoval's brain implant starts to malfunction, and has to be removed. A new one must be implanted within twenty hours, or he will die. However, free of Alien control he goes on the run, rescues his wife (who he had committed to an asylum as a threat to the Aliens) and tries to find sanctuary.
We know the writers are going to use the reset button, but this is a nice mix of characterisation and background. The Aliens want Sandoval dead because he was privvy to their secrets, and we get hints of what their long-term agenda might be. Also, we get confirmation of the causes of the death of Boone's wife.
Most importantly, we get to see Sandoval as a much more sympathetic character (he actually has HUMANITY), while Jonathan Doors is a bit of a bastard in comparison.
This episode concerns the events in the spin-off novel, First Companion, by James White . Taelon artefacts are discovered in an ancient tomb at Strandhill, Ireland ...
The episode also introduces a female Implant, Lieutenant Beckett ( Kari Matchett ). She is a Counter-Terrorist Officer in Ireland. Her background is a bit murky, to say the least. Her accent is a bad version of a Southern Irish brogue, but she claims to have been in the Belfast Militia ... fighting against the IRA. Luckily the IRA was disbanded when the Taelons arrived, but only because the Taelons created a United Ireland for some strange reason.
The episode starts with a new voice-over that gives Boone's background. There are also a couple of reference to previous episodes in the storyline. Boone gets psychic flashes of Captain Johnson, one of Da'an's kidnappers in a previous episode. He tells the doctor (Majel Barrett) and the other rebels ...
The plot itself concerns a Taelon experiment in de-evolution. The aliens use a human donor to provide a catalyst substance that will restore a Taelon scientist with potency and aggression. Do they seek to start a Taelon warrior caste? This also brings in a reference to the serial killer's wall-painting in [Season 1, Episode 4] Avatar.
A human psychic has discovered how to invade the Taelon Commonality. Da'an, Boone, Lili ( Lisa Howard ) and Sandoval descend upon a psychics' Convention to find the perp. Sandoval has secretly arranged to have the perp assassinated after arrest ...
The main suspect is a beautiful Russian woman. Boone falls in love with her ... Meanwhile, Augur the token Black guy makes moves on Lili.
Augur has created a computer virus that can be used against the Taelons. On orders from Jonathan Doors, Lili ( Lisa Howard ) uploads it into the Taelon computer. Boone is the only one who sees how it could all go badly wrong.
The Taelon embassy in Washington DC gets evacuated, but Boone and Sandoval are trapped inside. The building's bio-tech considers them to be intruders, like something out of Fantastic Voyage , They must work together to defeat the virus, before the Taelon computers start to self-destruct and destroy the human cities.
Lili's shuttle was damaged by the virus while she was in flight with Da'an. As a result, the shuttle crashes in a remote area in Appalachia. The two of them must work together in order to survive. Well, Lili is injured so she must rely on Da'an.
Doors sends a trio of paratroopers (including Peter Mensah - Spartacus: Blood And Sand ) to save Lili. Of course, by doing this they risk blowing her cover as a Resistance agent.
The Season One episodes usually end on a negative note, with Zo'or foreshadowing some evil Taelon plot. This episode, written by Damien Kindler ( Sanctuary ), is quite the opposite. Lilli has gone on an emotional journey, and experiences genuine character development. Now Da'an offers to increase their emotional bond by sharing psychic energy through physical touch. This mind-meld type experience, a blatant metaphor for sex, is accomplished by simply touching hands. Still, the actress handles the scene so well it is quite impressive.
Boone and Lili ( Lisa Howard ) learn that the Taelons have used Doors Industries to develop a weapon that can paralyse humans without killing them. Shocking as this is, it gets worse. The weapon is stolen ... Luckily the thief decides to sell it via Johnathan Doors' dealer ... But is it a Taelon trap?
Lili's father has died. However, the Taelons have secretly perfected a kind of brain transplant.
Blu Mankuma ( ), the chubby African-American who has been in EVERY US TV show ever made, pops up as a Taelon sidekick.
This is a sequel to the warrior caste episode. The Taelon who killed a human is now on trial for murder. The DA, Doors' son, is targeted by a Taelon worshipper. The trial is also affected by Zo'or's backstabbing.
The ID terminals, which teleport humans around the world, have a flaw. People temporarily go missing ...
Zo'or and Sandoval stage a coverup. Of course, Zo'or knows more about the problem than he lets Da'an know.
Meanwhile, Boone secretly helps Doors investigate.
A Taelon scientist who worked on the probe is infected with a deadly bacterium. The fact that the bacterium was engineered by Taelons is further implication of their dubious intent.
The bacterium is stolen and used by a White Supremacist group.
Augur is contacted by the Taelon probe - or rather, by the babe who got scanned into it and now exists as a computer virus on its Hard Drive. Our heroes have to destroy the probe, which is now at a Taelon base in Siberia. Augur helps them hire an infiltration specialist.
Joshua Doors, NYC DA and son of the Resistance leader, is now the official liaison between Earth and the Taelons. He makes moves on Lili ( Lisa Howard ).
This is the last episode of the season, and probably the best of the lot. We get a mix of great characterisation, plot development and action.
A SCUBA diving team uncover a strange pod, seemingly of alien origin. The pod's occupant escapes, using chameleon-like skills to take the identity of a human male. The Taelons say that he is a war criminal they exiled ten million years ago, and must be killed ASAP. But we finally get to see how blatantly duplicitous and untrustworthy the Taelons are.
Lieutenant Beckett ( Kari Matchett ), a female Implant with a VERY bad Oirish accent, has convinced herself that Lili ( Lisa Howard ) is working for the Liberation. She tries to convince Sandoval - whom she also attempts to seduce. This is a nice glimpse we get of the mental workings of an Implant other than Sandoval (the robotic, unemotional fanatic) and Boone (the fake).
Season Two has started. Just as in Season One, the opening credits show the wrong names with the actors' photos.
Beckett's baby grows up super-fast to become a full-grown human-looking male. He has super-fast learning skills, so they call him Liam Kincaid and send him undercover.
A beautiful woman in a catsuit is actually a Jarridian killing-machine. The Jarridians are aliens who intend to attack Earth and kill all the Taelons.
Da'an selects Kincaid as a new protector to replace Boone. Lili ( Lisa Howard ) is now assigned as Sandoval's pilot. Augur's AI has a hologram of Lili - in lingerie!
Augur now owns a high-class bar, the Flat Planet. He and his AI hologram (now dressed as the title character from I Dream Of Jeanie ) hack into the Taelon mass-consciousness. This gives Augur a spiritual high, but kicks Da'an out.
Da'an regresses to an earlier evolutionary stage - the Atavus. This is a Nosferatu-faced hulk, totally unlike Zo-Whore from Season 5!
Liam and Augur accidentally fly into a parallel universe where Mael never went to Earth. Humans never developed cities after the fall of Rome (ignoring non-European civilisations, of course) and the Taelons had to attack using brute force to enslave humanity.
Lili ( Lisa Howard ) is head of the Volunteers, while Sandoval and his wife Isobel lead the Resistance.
Sandoval meets his parallel-universe wife, Maiya.
Augur gets a Taelon brain implant - they make him a supersoldier to fight the Jaridians.
There is a rebellion.
Zo'Or sends Sandoval and Lili ( Lisa Howard ) to round up people at random. The chosen venue is Augur's bar, and the victims include Augur himself and Sandoval's parallel wife. Both Lili and Sandoval are upset at the situation, which makes them responsible for putting people in a comatose state so the the Taelons can suck off their spiritual energy. Surely there must be many convicts who could be used instead of innocent people.
Sandoval now knows that his parallel wife was not really in South America. He confronts Lili for lying to him, and she hits back at him by laying as much guilt on him as possible. The truth is, he is just as much a pawn in Zo'or's game as she is. They must put aside their bickering long enough to
The comatose people dream of their own paradise. Mrs Sandoval relives the happiest day of her life, her wedding day. Augur gets to see his father again. However, Liam goes into their dreams to wake them before they die. Can he trust Doors, his rvial in the Resistance who already tried to kill him once? And can he overcome his own issues concerning his father, Ha'gel?
Thompson, the US President, is up for reelection. He has the endorsement of the Taelon Synod, so he should be a shoe-in. After all, the Taelons have improved everyone's life. For example, they built a series of teleportation stations in cities all over the world. Unfortunately, there is a series of power blackouts in those cities.
Zo'Or sends Sandoval and Lili ( Lisa Howard ) to investigate. Despite Zo'or's denials, Sandoval suspects that it is a Taelon conspiracy. He gets Lili to illegally access the Taelon files. She deduces that Sandoval has actually got his own agenda, but stupidly accuses him of this to his face. Not only is he supposed to be a brainwashed slave of the Taelons, but if she is right then he might treat her as a blackmailer. It would be far smarter to play along, and use him as a tool of the Resistance.
Kincaid discovers that the real cause of the blackouts is a species of creatures from a distant dimension. Sandoval realises that because the creatures feed on energy, and the Taelons are made of energy, the creatures will eat the Taelons. The Taelons' guards use energy-based weapons to attack the creatures. Unfortunately it has already been established that the creatures feed on energy, and hitting them with energy weapons merely causes them to replicate at a vast rate.
The Mothership's human engineers are a stroppy bunch. They disagree with everything, and never give a positive suggestion. Not only do they disrupt Sandoval's secret agenda, they also disrupt Kincaid's plan to defeat the creatures.
Lili ( Lisa Howard ) examines what she learned about Sandoval in the previous episode. All the humans have begin to reject their CVI implants. Lieutenant Beckett ( Kari Matchett ), Kincaid's mother, is a particularly bad case. She has 24 hours to live, and she has gone off rock-climbing in the wilderness. Can Kincaid find her in time to say goodbye?
In her fevre dream, Beckett's nightmare is that Da'an puts her on trial for crimes against humanity. Doors is the prosecutor, and Kincaid is her defender. Strangely her mother states that she wanted a United Ireland, because for some strange reason she though it would be a safe place to raise her children. The prosecution breaks Godwin's law by invoking the Nazis. The defence's main argument is patriotism and the chain of command.
Zo'or sends Sandoval to find Beckett. If she rebels against the Taelons, she may use her insider info to help the Resistance. Since Sandoval's own CVI has ceased to function, he cannot risk drawing attention to himself.
Isabel and Maiya (Sandoval's parallel wife) must be joined or die. Sandoval's depth is not explored by the story. Typical!
Jonathan Doors launches his campaign for US President! Augur takes over Doors' secret lair.
Dr Belman (Gene Roddenberry's wife) experiments with Taelon DNA, as part of Da'an's plan to accellerate human evolution. Belman's daughter Joyce ( Polly Shannon ) is on the team. Joyce injects herself with a secret serum, and gets ESP powers.
The serum was secretly contaminated on Zo'or's orders. He had Sandoval obtain DNA from a Jarrdian prisoner on the mothership. Joyce can read Taelon minds as well as human ones. She knows all Zo'or's secrets, which are quite shocking. Apparently thousands of races were annihilated in the war against the Jarridians. And since Zo'or is the youngest of the Taelons, only a thousand years old, Da'an probably knows more about the genocides than Zo'or does!
Joyce becomes so powerful she wants to become a god. Her plan is to destroy all Taelons and humans on Earth by crashing the mother-ship and causing an extinction-level event. She wants to preserve Liam Kincaid to help repopulate the planet.
In a subplot, Lili ( Lisa Howard ) and Joshua Doors have been secretly dating for three months. Joshua resigns from Thompson's administration, so he can publicly support his father Jonathan Doors' bid to become POTUS.
The Jarridian DNA donor from the previous episode escapes from cryogenic storage on the mothership, and kidnaps Lili ( Lisa Howard ).
Liam follows them to an abandoned spaceship, and must evade boobytraps.
Carolyn Dunn is a chimera.

Sandoval and Dayan plot together.
Lexa Doig guest-stars as a volunteer.
This ep features Lili ( Lisa Howard ) and the Jarridian.
Da'an, Renee Palmer ( Jayne Heitmeyer ) and Kincaid are on the Mothership.
This episode introduces Augur's replacement, tech-girl Juliet Street ( Melinda Deines ).
Lili ( Lisa Howard ) has had a child with a Jaridian, a kind of repulsive-looking alien. It is done her a lot of good, though - she has grown her hair, and looks more womanly and less straight-laced. However, the Alien DNA in her and the baby mean that Earth's environment is killing her.
The villain of the piece is Sandoval. Once the mind-controlled puppet and slave of the aliens, he now has a sinister agenda of his own.
A Taelon-loving senator is shot by the daughter.
A hi-tech spy breaks into Renee Palmer's penthouse.
The Taelon energy core is fading. Sandoval is tasked with retrieving a new source of Cold Fusion. However, it is stolen before he can get it to Zo'or.
The Taelons show unnecessary cruelty - they create a tsunami that destroys his village in the Pacific (Sandoval's childhood home) in a fit of petty rage! This is a long way from the subtlety of Season One.
Augur has been captured by Sandoval, and placed in a secret Black Ops prison that uses sensory deprivation.
Our heroes try to save their pal, but they have a rival - a thief who wants to steal a vast hoard of gold from the Taelons.
Sandoval's position has been compromised by a new Terran Intelligence Agency. They know about his CVI and his secret bank accounts - and they want him to be their secret source on the Mothership.
The Resistance have managed to negotiate an amnesty. The good guys have to talk Resistance leader Christina Cox into coming in from the cold.
However, Zo'or plans to disrupt the amnesty. His scientists have discovered a parasite that burrows into the human brain and removes all fear and willpower from the victim. With a hive of such suicide troopers ...
Some Resistance types get through the portal, but somehow the Jaridians manage to send a team through as well. Yes, the Second Wave of Jaridian attackers is here!
The Taelons get word that a vast Jaridian battle-fleet is en route to destroy Earth. Zo'or's reaction is decisive - he recalls all Taelons to the mothership and heads out of the Solar System ASAP. The humans, abandoned to their fate, riot.
Can the Resistance weed out the Jaridian fifth column before the planet is destroyed? Not as easy as it sounds, because the Jaridians have access to all the information in Lili Marquette's brain. And since Lili ( Lisa Howard ) worked for both the Taelons and the Resistance ...
Renee Palmer's brother Robert escapes from a genocidal Bosnian Warlord. Renee ( Jayne Heitmeyer ) and Kincaid retrieve the brother and try to get him over the trauma. However, unknown to them the Warlord was secretly in league with Sandoval.
Sandoval's plot is to drain human emotions and distill them into an essense that the Taelons can consume. Just why he chose to do this immediately under the noses of his greatest enemies is a question in itself.
The de-emotioned Robert goes after Sandoval, who is apparently unable to use his arm-blaster thing. Only Renee and Kincaid can save their arch-enemy ...
Phantom of the Opera ... on the Mother-ship. It flies out of control.
A man dreams that he kills his rival, and wakes up to find the man dead. Kincaid's babelicious accountant gets him to investigate: her friend has been arrested for the murder, but she is convinced of his innocence.
The killers use adapted Taelon technology - a lightsaber! However, humans have also mastered Taelon technology that allows interactive dreaming ...
Renee Palmer ( Jayne Heitmeyer ) is now running Doors Industries, and she has access to the dream-surfing technology. When Zo'or finds out about it, he has Sandoval obtain it.
Kincaid investigates the death of a man whose CVI caused feedback that fried his brain.
Renee Palmer ( Jayne Heitmeyer ) discovers that she has been sterilised by Taelon radiation. Thousands of other women are in the same boat, and have been flocking to Taelon-backed fertility clinics. This gives Zo'or the perfect opportunity to implant genetically altered embryos ...
Apparently Ron Sandoval is genetically predisposed to violence and criminal tendencies. Hmm, that must be what made him such an exemplary FBI Officer.
A piece of space debris crashes into the Taelon mothership. The debris is Dark Matter - it causes the Taelons to freeze, leaving Sandoval the highest-ranking person aboard. He uses this as an opportunity to get revenge on Zo'or, who killed his wife and destroyed his birthplace.
The US President and the Atlantic National Alliance (!) want Kincaid and Renee Palmer ( Jayne Heitmeyer ) to get Da'an to stage a coup and replace Zo'or as head of the Taelon Synod. They decide to destroy the Dark Matter and save the mothership.
Kincaid and Zo'or try to decipher Ma'el's manuscript. The ancient Taelon apparently uncovered a way of creating core energy, and encoded it in such a way that it needs a human to help read it.
Someone hires Ramona Milano to have the manuscript stolen from the mothership. Sandoval is hot on the thief's tail. However, when Zo'or discovers the theft he threatens to attack the USA.
Augur pops up again, this time as one of the few people who might be able to break the Taelon code.
Street ( Melinda Deines ), the hacker babe, discovers that Sandoval infected her with nanites. She goes on the run, with the entire episode told pretty much from her point of view. She cannot trust the two main heroes, Kincaid and Renee Palmer ( Jayne Heitmeyer ), because they both have their own agendas. Also, we get to see her background: she has trust issues because her parents abandoned her when she was a child.
For some reason, Sandoval has let Zo'or in on the secret fact that he inserted the nanobots. That seems to be why Sandoval has his old job back, even though he got demoted in the previous episode.
Sandoval's conscience is getting to him. His night terrors almost result in the strangulation of the hooker he is sleeping with in the oriental bath-house. He approaches Renee Palmer ( Jayne Heitmeyer ) and offers to testify at a NATO tribuneral for Taelon atrocities.
Renee's BF is a spy. The Taelons now have Jaridian superweapons.
This ep links a couple of McGuffins from previous eps: the cold fusion reactor and the space station.
Da'an and Zo'or take the Taelons to the brink of civil war.
Kincaid is dying, and has visions of a glowing humanoid. His overzealous rookie babe is plotting against him.
Protectors start to kill their Taelons. It appears that their CVIs havre been tampered with. Luckily Kincaid has no CVI, and Sandoval's is inactive.
This episode has hints of a story arc. There are references to previous episodes, such as the appearance of the Jaridians, and Sandoval and his sidekick Tate are allowed to appear somewhat sympathetic.
Kincaid steers the Taelon mothership back to Earth. However, Earth does not want the Taelons back. The US President is willing to nuke them ...
Street ( Melinda Deines ) the hacker-girl has decided to give up working on Mael's riddle. However, she accidentally solves the 8th dimension of it. This reveals the location of Mael's hidden regeneration chamber, inside a volcano. Kincaid explores, and gets trapped ...
Zo'or steals Mael's relic, and wants to keep the regeneration for himself. Sandoval is still out for power, and the Jaridians are out for revenge.
This builds up to a typically apocalyptic climax, so we do not know who gets killed off and who will be back in the next Season.
Season Five starts with the only surviving good guys, Renee Palmer ( Jayne Heitmeyer ) and the Nerd Grrl, taking a submarine to look for the hero on the bottom of the sea. She hopes that Kincaid survived the cataclysmic events of last ep.
The sub captain is Andrew Gillies ( Codename: Eternity ) - he is unrecognisable as a beardy fifty-year-old gruff scotsman!
Something DID survive the cataclysm. Unfortunately, it is a new and hostile species ... the Atavus! The sub is attacked by the new monsters of the Season, the Atavus.

A blonde Atavus female goes on the rampage.
The Spanish Inquisition think that the heroine Renee Palmer ( Jayne Heitmeyer ) is the killer.
Teenage Goths set up website, and become Atavus themselves. This is a very clumsy metaphor for drugs.
