Earth suddenly finds itself at war with an alien race called the Chiggs when Earth begins colonizing other planets. When Nathan West (Morgan Weisser)is forced out of his position on one of the colony ships, he joins the Marines in hopes of being near his girlfriend. When his girlfriend is taken as a prisoner by the Chigs, his mission is to find and save her. Others that end up serving with him have their own reasons for joining the Marine Corps Space Aviator Calvary. Shane Vansen's (Kristen Cloke who also made memorable appearences in "The X-Files" and "Millennium" as well as "Final Desintation") family were murdered by rogue "replicants" (shades of "Blade Runner"!)and is inspired to serve by her deceased parents. Cooper (Rodney Rowland) is a Tank i.e., someone born in a lab and wants to escape the prejudice he faces on Earth including an attempt to hang him by bigots.
Well written by Morgan and Wong (they wrote the bulk of the first season) and directed by TV vets (David Nutter-"The X-File", "ER" and Winrich Kolbe-"Star Trek: The Next Generation" among them), it's a gritty TV show that doesn't pull its punches. The show only lasted a season so never moved beyond finding its legs and developing the storyarcs that were planned.Read more ›
Please note: this is still speculation based upon a small amount of evidence. There may still be a problem with these discs, but it sure looks like they've been corrected.

The TV show is great. Unfortunately it only ran for one season which is a shame. If the price on this item was reasonable, I would give it 5 stars. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Pete
I forgot how much I liked this show. The effects are bad but it's a 90s tv show. Story and acting is pretty good though. Very original.Published 1 month ago by Robert Smith
Loved this series back in the day and it is still great today! It was too expensive to produce 20-years ago and thus lived a short life. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Greg Davis
The series was great. Think the more recent iteration of Battlestar Galactica and pare it to the mid 90s with that breadth and scope of acting, cinematography and plot. Read morePublished 2 months ago by stayathomedad
Apparently I'm old enough to be bitten by the nostalgia bug. I forgot this series was based on psychological nonsense rather than Si-Fi technology.Published 2 months ago by Reg

Correct. They are all double-sided disks, and need to be read on both sides, so there are no stickers or images of any kind on the surfaces.
Bought my set at Best Buy in 2005.
