They arrived in 15 mother ships, offering their friendship
and advanced technology to Earth. Sceptical of the visitors,
Mike Donovan and Julie Parish (members of the World Resistance
Fighters) infiltrated their ranks and soon discovered the
startling secret that they had in actual fact come to Earth
for food and water. We were their food!...
seen in the hit miniseries
The Final Battle, humanity bravely resisted
a struggle yet the war continues. Once again Earth is the
main battleground for the war but the objective has changed.
They now believe that the secret to their survival on Earth
lies in the DNA of the newly born half-human, half-spaceling
Star child, Elizabeth. They intend to capture her. But that's
something the World's Resistance Fighters cannot allow.
3 disc, 19 episode box set comes to us complete and uncut.
It takes us on a rollercoaster ride of metamorphosis, holographic
ruses, force fields, hostage taking, cloning, allegations
of treason and mind control. These are but a few of the storylines.
being old enough to vaguely remember this series when first
shown on TV I was somewhat apprehensive about seeing it again.
20 years on from its first release this series is still very
enjoyable. Okay, so there are big perms, tight trousers, clumsy
looking computers and some quite hilarious fight scenes (where
no-one seems to have a good aim) which point this right at
the eighties. But the ideas of this series were way ahead
of its time.
the special effects have been able to stand the test of time.
Although they are nothing like what are used now, in its day
these would have been fantastic, what with laser guns and
there are no special features to come with this box set which
is a real shame. A behind the scenes featurette or interviews
with the actors would have been really entertaining.
Whether you can remember this from the first time round or
not, you really should go out and buy it. You will find yourself
not knowing who to trust and just when you think you were
right about someone everything will all change and you'll
realise that you really didn't have a clue.
This is a very clever and entertaining series that is really
worth adding to your DVD collection.
