    Product Description

    From legendary TV producer Gene Roddenberry of Star Trek fame comes a thrilling, epic quest to save humanity in 22 gripping episodes of Earth: Final Conflict Season One. When an advanced alien species, the Taelons, comes to Earth in the early 21st century on a seemingly peaceful mission to share their knowledge and technology with humanity, they choose courageous Police Captain William Boone (Kevin Kilner) and his partner, Captain Lili Marquette (Lisa Howard), to be the protectors of their elected “Companion” to mankind, Da’an (Leni Parker). Boone quickly finds himself torn between his secretive new employers and an underground human resistance group that will do anything to uncover the Taelons’ real motives. Available on DVD for the first time, Roddenberry’s last series is an intense adventure loaded with hair-raising action, cutting-edge technology, and unforgettable drama.

    "Fans of The Twilight Zone will easily recognize the influence of a memorable episode from that classic television series on Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict. Damon Knight and Rod Serling's ""To Serve Man"" concerned an advanced, extraterrestrial race with large, bald heads and a seemingly benevolent attitude about helping Earth's humans eliminate poverty, disease, and war. It took a little time for people who had grown complacent from all that allegedly no-strings-attached kindness to realize the aliens had a rather primal, hidden agenda.

    Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict, based on notes and story ideas the late Roddenberry left behind, turns a similar premise into a complex, nuanced tale of tensions between a race of bald, androgynous aliens who serve mankind and skeptical humans who don't trust them. Co-developed and co-produced by Roddenberry's widow, actress Majel Barrett (Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Earth: Final Conflict finds our planet more than happy to submit to the goodwill of super-evolved extraterrestrials called Taelons. Having eliminated much of our species' miseries with advanced technology, the Taelons begin moving more and more into the business of running human affairs. Kevin Kilner stars as William Boone, a cop who becomes an inter-dimensional double agent when a Taelon ambassador, Da'an (Leni Parker), chooses him to be a security liaison. Reluctant to accept the job, Boone agrees only after an underground resistance group--funded by a billionaire (David Hemblen) and including another top security figure (Lisa Howard)--convinces him to be their spy. Equipped with a brain implant that expands his mental powers, Boone begins working for both sides, trying to discover the full story behind the Taelons' altruistic relationship with Earth. Indeed, there is more to the Taelons' story than meets the eye, though they are not unsympathetic, and Boone develops something of a relationship with Da'an. The series has a kind of zig-zagging episodic structure that emphasizes unique stories while allowing the deeper, Taelons-versus-rebels tale to thread its way through. Special effects, as in Star Trek: The Next Generation, are on the cheesy side, but that's all right: several good performances compensate for that shortcoming. Parker, as Da'an, is very good as a creature of both duplicity and deep feeling. But the real standout is Von Flores as Ronald Sandoval, another security agent who destroyed his personal life to become a guardian for the Taelons. Flores is wonderful playing a man whose pain reveals itself, in small degrees, through a veneer of harsh authority. As it turns out, Sandoval is the only character who remained on Earth: Final Conflict all the way through its five seasons on television. Flores is the man to watch. --Tom Keogh "

    The first season offered Babylon 5 storytelling quality. Rich characters, even characters who you think of in terms of good/bad, black/white, will throw you for a curve. The main character, Boone, begins his journey into the Taelon mystery with a clear delineation of the Taelons as "bad guys" only to discover that Taelon/human relations are much more "shades of grey" filled with individual (human and Taelon) agendas.

    All of which is tossed out beginning season two for a straight forward good human, bad Taelon, let the fighting begin and "oh yeah can the women of the show wear tighter sweaters and shirts?" Welcome to late 90s syndication sci-fi/fantasy storytelling. Keep it simple, keep it sexy.

    Rather than ranting on; I'll merely offer you a single season one episode, "Sandoval's Run". Watch that Sandoval character in that episode versus the schemer and megalomaniac they turn him into in the later seasons. Season one Sandoval is a much more interesting character versus the one dimensional "bad guy" he turns into.

    I remember back in the beginning of the season two days, a bunch of us fan boys and girls threw a fit on the usenet group over the simpler storytelling (dumbed down) the show descended into only to be told by a show rep the the creators were worried the season one storytelling complexities would chase new viewers off in later seasons who didn't follow it from the beginning. Well the new direction chased me off.

    If you saw later seasons and didn't like it or thought it just never lived up to its full potential, try season one. I love it so much I bought it...

    ...but only season one.

    To glance at Earth: Final Conflict, you would likely be overcome with the sensation of "been there, done that" either through earlier shows Alien Nation or V, all of which sound remarkably similar in their synopsis. However, the trademarked title card precursor "Gene Roddenberry's" is a hint of the supremacy fans of science fiction staples such as Star Trek can expect in E: FC. And I can report with confidence that the entire first season delivers on that potential with one caveat: The remaining 4 seasons never manage to capture the magic of the first (reviewed here) and, as you will discover below, thanks to some legal snags in securing the DVD rights to the property, maybe this isn't such a bad thing after all.

    Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict, developed on notes and story ideas the late Star Trek creator left behind, turns a common premise into a complex, character-driven tale of tensions between a race of highly evolved aliens who have arrived to Earth with intentions of serving mankind with knowledge and technology.
    Co-developed and co-produced by Roddenberry's widow, actress Majel Barrett, Earth: Final Conflict aired for 5 seasons between October 6 1997, and May 20 2002. The story, unlike the rest of Roddenberry's properties, is set on Early in the 21st century when a race of alien beings (the Taelons) arrives on Earth after existing in orbit for several years. In exchange for refuge on our planet, the Taelons offer humanity access to their advanced technology and knowledge base. As a result, concepts such as disease, war, and global pollution are all but eliminated.

    Many fans of this series (including me,) have waited a very long time for this season to be released. Earth: The Final Conflict seasons 1 and 2 have been held up in a "rights" war. Basically, two studios were fighting over whom owned the rights to the series' first two seasons. Seasons 3 and 4 were not in dispute and therefore no "conflict" (forgive the pun,) held up their releases. Finally, it looks like all that legal crap is resolved and Season one is coming. This was an awesome show!!! Fantastic special FX and epic story telling. It is a MUST have for any sci-fi fan.

    As with many other fans, I have the ADV release of seasons 3,4 & 5. I was disappointed that after the dust settled with who really owned the rights to season 1 & 2, the winner released season 1 in full screen and only stereo. The 3 seasons from ADV are in widescreen and dolby 5.1. The resolution on the ADV seasons also look cleaner. I wonder how long we'll have to wait for season 2 to complete our sets.

    If you're curious about this series, but don't have a lot of cash to spend, I recommend limiting yourself to seasons 1 and 4. Why those? Well as others have pointed-out very little happens in years two and three, which fell into a kind of Gilligan's Island syndrome. In every episode the characters discover a way to beat or expose the visiting Aliens as evil, but at the end they fail to achieve their goal, and there's a "reset" to return everything back to the status quo. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Seasons 2/3 are boring to watch.

    But seasons 1 and 4 put in the effort to advance the story. Season 1 basically asks the questions and sets-up the mystery, while season 4 provides the answers with an ultimate conclusion to the Alien/Human story.

    So that's what I have in my collection - 1 and 4. Taken together they resemble Babylon 5 or Deep Space Nine in complexity. The other seasons I owned at one point, but I eventually sold them off since they were so inferior.
