With him is the crew of the ship that, with profit in mind and unknowing of her captain still being alive, salvaged Andromeda from the black hole keeping her suspended in time. Andromeda originally hid in the black hole after a big battle. When Captain Hunt wakes up he realizes that this battle was the beginning of an epic war and that the great civilization he was defending, the Commonwealth, has been eradicated from existence.

He and his unlikely and sometimes unpredictable crew starts on a mission to once again bring hope to the galaxy. Written by Bug. I feel the need to post a comment on this title because I've seen a few comments from people who are surprised at the positive user response for such an awful show. What is truly tragic about Andromeda is that it is a show that never realized its full potential. This is due to the powers that be and their decision to remove Wolfe from his post as head writer of the show.

From Season 1 to the halfway point of Season 2, Wolfe was the head writer of Andromeda and the show was quality in every sense of the word. Wolfe took his experience from shows such as Star Trek: Deep Space Night and invested it in Andromeda, bringing life to intricate plot-lines and vibrant characters functioning in a realized Universe.

As Season 2 began to move along, the usual first season clumsiness that one expects from new TV shows had totally dissolved and an epic plot line was beginning to come to life.

This was tragically cut short when Wolfe was fired. After this unfortunate event, nearly all of his work was thrown out of the window as the series took an entirely different direction in favour of mainstream approval and a more episodic format. The most painful example of the latter is embodied in the decision to do away with the character of Trance in favour of a new incarnation of the character designed to be sexy.

The series began to spiral downwards even more, until it was finally too difficult to watch. Four stars out of ten for 1.

Andromeda was nearly drained of power and her Artificial Intelligence became erratic. But thanks to several power crystals, notably a cube that could turn matter to water, found on Seefra, Andromeda was restored to full power.

The Andromeda Ascendant, like every other ship in the galaxies, runs on Hydrogen and Antiprotons. A matter-antimatter reaction is created when these two substances are combined in controlled reactors. This reaction creates the power that runs the ship. An Antiproton Solenoid Valve is critical in regulating the flow of Anti-Protons to the fusion reactors.

The power created by the matter-antimatter reaction is used mainly for two purposes. The first is to keep the Gravity Field Generator running. Because the Gravity Field Generator reduces the effective mass of the Andromeda to just less than one kilogram, it is a critical part of the ship's mobility system.

The second main power draw on the Andromeda is the process of accelerating more hydrogen into a MagnetoplasmaDynamic Drive. The MPD uses the accelerated hydrogen to create charged hydrogen plasma. This plasma is then accelerated to near-light-speed and ejected into space. This ejection creates thrust for the ship with maximum efficiency. The fuel efficiency of the MPD is in direct proportion to the velocity at which the plasma is ejected. All warships including the Andromeda have a Ramscoop that can be used to gather Hydrogen from the upper atmosphere of any gas giant planet.

Aboard the ship, the Hydrogen is then purified and used to create Anti-Protons with the assistance of solar power from a nearby sun. Though on-board fuel processing is convenient, it takes a long time.

Starting with full tanks, in battlefield conditions the Andromeda can operate for about 60 days without refueling. Decreased activity will prolong the period in which the Andromeda can operate without refueling, and increased activity will reduce it. If time is taken to process fuel aboard the ship, the Andromeda's operating time is unlimited.

The Andromedas Navigational Thrusters are her main sources of sublight propulsion. They are fueled by her MagnetoplasmaDynamic Drive system, and are be used in a variety of situations. They can be used to maneuver her with extreme accuracy so that she can dock securely with Drifts and other space stations, as well as move her swiftly through combat zones. However, they are also utilized to propel her at speeds so fast that she almost is traveling past the speed of light.

They are located on the sides of her main Slipstream runners. The Andromeda is, as every ship of her class, designed to be an extremely powerful ship with a multitude of weapon systems, offensive and defensive. She is a heavy cruiser and flagship of the Systems Commonwealth , and is supposed to be the representation of the power held by the Commonwealth.

They also have a 1 kg mass, which is approximately the size of a human fist. She can fire 8 mps missiles per second from each of her 40 Electromagnetic Launch System missile tubes, giving her a total rate of fire of missiles per minute. With this kind of firepower, she is able to depopulate a planet in under 2 minutes. Andromeda has layered defenses, which are designed to be extremely effective at protecting the ship herself from any attack.

The next layer is followed by a second wave of 76 not all active all the time, and almost exclusively during combat Type 2 Arc Light Slipfighter. The RCMGs fulfill the dual purpose of projecting passive and full-spectrum active sensor jamming, as well as projecting multiple Anti-Gravity fields to deflect incoming projectiles off their course if they come too close.

All these are mounted on the hull, and are the last but powerful line of defense. If any missile or projectile makes it through all the layers of the defense network, it impacts Andromeda's fullerene mesh hull.

Andromeda is represented in the northern sky by the constellation Andromeda , which contains the Andromeda Galaxy. The advancement of science and technology allowed the emergence of astrophotography which allowed more concrete observation of the Andromeda constellation and led to the discovery that the galaxy lies within the Andromeda constellation.

Four constellations are associated with the myth. Viewing the fainter stars visible to the naked eye, the constellations are rendered as:. Sophocles and Euripides and in more modern times, Corneille made the story the subject of tragedies , and its incidents were represented in numerous ancient works of art, [3] including Greek vases. Andromeda has been the subject of numerous ancient and modern works of art, which typically show the moment of rescue, with Andromeda usually still chained, and often naked or nearly so.

From the Renaissance onward the chained nude figure of Andromeda typically was the centre of interest. Rembrandt 's Andromeda Chained to the Rocks is unusual in showing her alone, fearfully awaiting the monster. The Italian composer Salvatore Sciarrino composed an hour-long operatic drama called Perseo e Andromeda in Titian , Wallace Collection.

He tries to find a map to the Route of Ages — a portal connecting all the universes together. It is possible to weaken the Abyss by passing through it, but Dylan gets the map instead and allows Tyr to follow Andromeda through the Route of Ages because Tyr knows more about the Abyss.

He kills Tyr, because he tries to make a deal with the Spirit of the Abyss. She reveals to him that she is Avatar of a Sun. Trance destroys the Andromeda and re-creates it in the right universe. The Magog evolve and become more intelligent, and cunning. In the season finale their Worldship is rediscovered. It is heading towards the Arkology , an old space station with very pacifist population.

Dylan frantically tries to convince them that they have to defend themselves, but the people of the Arkology hope to create a peace treaty with the Magog. They pay dearly for that mistake, as the Magog never make peace with anyone.

Andromeda tries to defend the Arkology against the Worldship, but is overwhelmed. The Arkology is destroyed along with its millions of inhabitants, and Rhade, Beka, and Harper are left in no-win situations.

Rommie explodes after being shot through her stomach while saving Harper from the Magog. Season five starts with an unusual premise. Dylan finds himself transported into the Seefra System — 9 identical barren worlds with superstitious population and 2 suns. Technology especially spaceflight is shunned, and water is treasured because of constant drought.

Flavin , a Paradine , meets Dylan here, giving him cryptic hints about Dylan's destiny and what Seefra is before disappearing. Dylan eventually finds Nietzschean warrior Telemachus Rhade , pilot Beka Valentine and super-genius engineer Seamus Harper on Seefra, and to his amazement, they all arrived in Seefra at different times and locations.

Harper, in particular, arrived three years earlier with the remains of the android Rommie. He tried to repair her but failed, eventually building another Android , Doyle , with some of Rommie's memories. Initially he convinces her that she is human, but later her true identity is revealed by a rebel android names Argent.

Trance is also found, but she is weakened by her attempt to transport Andromeda and its crew to Seefra. She does not quite remember who she is and what she is supposed to do.

White doves often choose mates of different hue and the parrot loves the black turtle dove. However, in his Metamorphoses , Ovid makes mention of Perseus having initially mistaken Andromeda as a statue of marble, which indicates that Ovid acknowledged stories that portray Andromeda as being pale of skin, as the Ancient Greco-Romans used white marble for their statues.

In his Histories, Herodotus described Andromeda as being a Persian Princess, indicating that she was Iranian in origin as she and her husband Perseus were seen as the progenitors of the Persians. Isidore mentions in The Etymologies of Isidore of Seville that the story of Andromeda was said to have taken place in the prehistoric city of Joppa, now Jaffa in modern Israel. He reports a rock displayed there which still retains traces of the chains of Andromeda, in the shape of a sea-monster larger than an elephant.

Here, Isidore refers to Andromeda as being a Palestinian at the time meaning Philistine [ citation needed ] Princess. In a letter to Chariclea, Persinna attributes her daughter's anomalous colour to the fact that when Persinna became pregnant with her, she was gazing up at a picture of the white-skinned Andromeda.

I knew the reason, that it was because, while my husband had to do with me, I was looking at the picture of Andromeda brought down by Perseus naked from the rock, and so by mishap engendered presently a thing like to her. In his Imagines , Philostratus describes that Andromeda, though Aethiopian, was white; making a clear contrast to all the other natives who assembled to cheer Perseus.

Within this text, Philostratus describes Andromeda as delightful or charming in her white beauty. Overall, Andromeda had no clear ethnicity in mythology as her appearance and her place of origin depended upon the author or artist depicting her, meaning that there is no ethnic designation for Andromeda.

Ancient artwork portrayals of Andromeda portray her as either a pale woman of Greco-Roman ethnicity or of Asian ethnicity, the usually understood locale of the story before its later transfer in the Greco-Roman imagination to modern Ethiopia. Andromeda is represented in the northern sky by the constellation Andromeda , which contains the Andromeda Galaxy. The advancement of science and technology allowed the emergence of astrophotography which allowed more concrete observation of the Andromeda constellation and led to the discovery that the galaxy lies within the Andromeda constellation.

Four constellations are associated with the myth. One episode The Dark Backward is filmed completely from Trance's viewpoint, showing that she "lives" through all alternate futures before choosing the right one. Nietzschean crewman Tyr Anasazi makes his move at the end of the season. They cede from the New Systems Commonwealth.

The Season ends with Tyr betraying the Commonwealth. In season four, Dylan is nearly arrested by the New Systems Commonwealth. The Collectors who were originally the keepers of historical information allied with the Spirit of the Abyss , manipulated the fragile government of the New Commonwealth in order to show Dylan Hunt in a bad light.

The Abyss infiltrates the Commonwealth using many other agents as well. Eventually the Collectors unite with Tyr and his newly united Nietzschean Prides. Tyr mistrusts the Spirit of the Abyss, but hopes to defeat it by working with it and discovering it's weaknesses. He tries to find a map to the Route of Ages , a portal connecting all the universes together.

The Abyss is weakened by passing through it, but Dylan gets the map instead and allows Tyr to follow Andromeda through the Route of Ages because Tyr knows more about the Abyss. He kills Tyr, because he tries to make a deal with the Spirit of the Abyss. Trance destroys the Andromeda and re-creates it in the right universe. The Magog evolve and become more intelligent, and cunning. In the season finale their Worldship is rediscovered.

It is heading towards the Arkology , an old space station with a very pacifist population. Dylan frantically tries to convince them that they have to defend themselves, but the people of the Arkology hope to create a peace treaty with the Magog.

They pay dearly for that mistake, as the Magog never make peace with anyone. Andromeda tries to defend the Arkology against the Worldship, but is horribly outnumbered. The Arkology is destroyed along with its millions of inhabitants, and Rhade, Beka, and Harper are left in dead end situations.

Seefra 1 turns out to be Tarn-Vedra , long lost capital of the Commonwealth. But Vedrans themselves left it long ago, disillusioned with humans.

Seefra 1 is the original Tarn-Vedra and Seefra 2 to Seefra 9 are copies of it. Tarn-Vedra's original sun was somehow replaced by two artificial constructs, Methus-1 and Methus Methus-2 is now damaged and emits deadly flares, which are the reason for Seefra's drought.

Trance remembers her identity when she meets Ione , avatar of the Tarn-Vedra moon. She is the Tarn-Vedra sun. When she realizes this, her sun enters the Seefra system, and Dylan has to find a way to fix Methus-2 and evacuate eight doomed planets to Seefra 1. Trance's "sisters" who call themselves the " Lambent Kith Nebula " , however, try to persuade her to join them.

In their opinion the fate of Dylan, Seefra, or Known Space is irrelevant. Trance stubbornly refuses, and the Nebula attempts to replace her all Avatars of the Suns look alike.

Real Trance is imprisoned inside Methus-2, and it takes some time for Dylan to realize the deception and rescue her. Dylan proceeds with the evacuation of the Seefra planets, although his plans are hindered by General Burma , a religious leader from Seefra 5. Burma is later revealed to be under the control of the Spirit of the Abyss. In the series finale, the Vedran sun is back in its place and people are safe on Seefra 1.

Trance then contacts the Nebula — the Lambent Kith Nebula , supreme council of the galaxies which includes fifty Avatars. Trance was once the oldest member of the Nebula, but disagreed with their views of organic life as something insignificant and left long ago. Together with Dylan she appeals to the Nebula and its leader Maura , who plans to destroy the Abyss by expanding the All Forces Nullification Point until it consumes all galaxies.

This incidentally will destroy everything alive in existence; only Seefra will survive. Maura refuses to reconsider their plans, but allows Dylan and the Andromeda to return to Known Space. When the Andromeda slipstreams to Tarazed , Dylan finds out that only four days have passed since the Battle of Arkology , and the Magog World Ship is crippled but still operational. Rhade reunites with his wife, Jillian Rhade only to return to the Andromeda shortly.

Andromeda visits Earth where Harper secretly plans to stay , but as soon as the ship arrives in the system, the planet is promptly destroyed by the Abyss.

A huge Nietzschean fleet emerges from behind the debris, and Andromeda barely escapes. Dylan begins to suspect Maura's motives and soon realizes she is the Avatar of the Abyss and that all of the Nebula with the exception of Trance are under its control. It was founded by the Vedrans , the first race to discover slipstream, who initially used it to conquer the Andromeda Galaxy.

After a long and bitter war of attrition with the major powers of the Triangulum Galaxy, the Vedran Empire was reorganized as the democratic Systems Commonwealth. The Commonwealth served as a peaceful intergalactic government for almost 10, years until the Nietzschean revolt.

Dylan eventually managed to restore the Commonwealth though not to its former glory; initially it had only 50 members while the Old Commonwealth had included more than a million worlds. However, the New Commonwealth soon fell victim to internal corruption masterminded by the group known as the Collectors, who were allied with the Abyss.

Robert Hewitt Wolfe was brought in to develop the series. Fireworks Entertainment was brought in to co-finance and for international distribution. In early , actor Kevin Sorbo was recruited to star in the series while he starred in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Sorbo, his agent, Eric Gold, and Majel Roddenberry were to be executive producers and Wolfe as co-executive producer.

Andromeda' s first episode was aired in syndication on October 2, [1] while being carried on Global Television Network in Canada. In January , Andromeda was renewed for two seasons, its third and fourth, having gotten two year deals with stations in 39 out the top 40 markets. In January , the Sci-Fi Channel made a deal for the show and all its episodes plus fellow Tribune syndicated but discontinued show BeastMaster. In March, the cable channel would start showing season four episodes which would then be seen in syndication 7 to 10 days later.

With the deal, the series was renewed for its fifth and final season. With Fireworks being the primary production company, this was effectively the show's cancellation notice. Fireworks Entertainment took Tribune to court to get an order releasing them from production and financing the two series.

A region B Blu-ray release of Season One was released on June 24, in the UK, with the next two seasons following by the end of that year. The all-region Blu-ray release of the complete box set of all five seasons was released on September 19, Andromeda was nominated for 39 awards at organizational events spanning the years to The show won 18 of those awards.
