Alien Nation was a great
TV series about extraterrestrial aliens who had been granted asylum on
Earth. They had been a part of a slave ship, and the conflict was
like any displaced people would have trying to fit into American society.
In the series, there is a mixture of Sci-Fi and police drama. You
have the cynical human detective, Matt Sikes, and his alien Tenctonese
(aka "Newcomer") partner George Francisco as the heroes. Canceled
after one season, the people demanded more. What followed was a series
of two hour TV films. There is still much support for bringing Alien
Nation back as a regular series. Maybe with the success of the Sci-Fi
Channel picking up Sliders, there is hope for Alien Nation.
