AdvantagesTakes You to Another Reality

"Within the science fiction world, Andromeda tends to be the unloved child. It is constantly mocked and ridiculed. In fact, I used to mock it myself. Then I actually sat down and watched it properly. It turns out that Andromeda is actually great. Gene Rodenberry, who most people recognise as the creator of Star Trek, devised it. His wife, Majel, produced Andromeda after Gene's death, so he never got to see his idea come to fruition. I think he would ..." Read review

Andromeda comes alive

Advantagesall the right stuff, plus in series 2 a strong plot

Disadvantagesthe feeling that you've seen/read something like it before

"As always with American programmes the first series was a set of mainly unrelated episodes (with a number of double episodes) that had a faint link/theme to carry the series.

Tyr, the warrior like human-alien ..." Read review

Roddenbery's Drommie

Advantagesgood story lines

Disadvantagesnot as good as star trek

"...it first came out on sky 1 a few years ago. Gene Roddenbery's scripts vary massivily. I thought Star trek was brilliant but I didn't enjoy Earth Final Contact as much so I was wondering how this one would turn out. Andromada is very good. I didn't like it as much as Star Trek but I still think it is very good. How can you compare the two? (I'll just stop going on about Star Trek now and carry on with my opinion). Captain Dillan Hunt (kevin sorbo ..." Read review
