Andromeda 2000–2005 (110 episodes)
|Primary Audience:||Teen to Adult|
Canadian/American science fiction series, based on unused material by Gene Roddenberry / The galaxy was at peace under the benevolent rule of a federation of planets. There was a race of genetically enhanced humans called Neitchiens (after the philosopher) who are bred and trained to be the embodiment of the existentialist philosophy their namesake promoted. This “bad” race destroyed the "System's Commonwealth." The galaxy fell into chaos and standards of living recessed everywhere. During the initial revolt, one of the warships that flew under the commonwealth's banner, Andromeda, fell into the event horizon of a black hole, just far enough in so that it was frozen in time and space, but not so far in that it was crushed. 300 years later it and its only remaining crew were unfrozen by scavengers seeking to loot the ship. Upon learning that the commonwealth had been destroyed, the captain goes on a mission to restore it.
