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.
