Andromeda - Andromeda (TV series) - Netflix
Andromeda (formally titled Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda) is a
Canadian/American science fiction television series, based on unused
material by Gene Roddenberry, developed by Robert Hewitt Wolfe, and
produced by Roddenberry's widow, Majel Barrett. It starred Kevin Sorbo
as High Guard Captain Dylan Hunt. The series premiered on October 2,
2000, and ended on May 13, 2005. Andromeda was filmed in Vancouver,
British Columbia, Canada and produced by Andromeda Productions, Tribune
Entertainment, Fireworks Entertainment and MBR Productions. In Canada,
the show was on Global TV (Fireworks' parent company) in Canada and
syndicated in the United States on Tribune, Sinclair and other stations.
Andromeda is one of two TV series (to date) based on concepts
Roddenberry had created as early as the 1960s and 1970s. The name Dylan
Hunt had previously been used for the hero of two TV pilots Roddenberry
had produced in the mid-1970s, Genesis II, and Planet Earth, all sharing
a similar dystopian, post-apocalyptic premise.
Andromeda - Major star systems - Netflix
Hephaestus, a system with a significant Nietzschean population that was
devastated by a rogue black hole in the pilot episode and the place of
Dylan's frozen imprisonment in time for 300 years. It turned out in
season five that the Andromeda somehow still retained a connection to
this black hole. Mobius, a barren world with underground cities. Mobius
was ruled by ruthless dictators for many centuries but joined the New
Commonwealth when its leader, the “Great Compass” Venetri resigned.
San-Ska-Re, a Than homeworld and a major power in post-Fall Known
Worlds. Did not actually appear on screen. Seefra, a mysterious
artificial system of nine planets and two suns where Dylan and his crew
were transported after the Battle of Arkology. Seefra-One is revealed to
actually be Tarn-Vedra. Tarazed, a world with significant human and
loyalist Nietzschean populations; it survived the Long Night largely
unscathed. It became the first capital of the New Commonwealth.
Birthplace of Telemachus Rhade. Tarazed was described in the series as
being located in another galaxy and therefore is not intended to be
equivalent to Tarazed, a non-fictional star of the same name.
Tarn-Vedra, the capital of the Old Systems Commonwealth and Vedran
homeworld. All slipstream routes to Tarn-Vedra vanished soon after the
Nietzschean rebellion, contributing to the ensuing chaos. Dylan was born
on Tarn-Vedra. One of his motivations for restoring the Commonwealth is
the search for his own lost home. Earth was ravaged by the Nietzschean
occupation and Magog assaults during the Long Night. Harper was born and
acquired his notable survival skills there. Arkology, a huge space
station with a pacifist population and the site of the Andromeda's
second confrontation with the Magog Worldship. The Andromeda lost and
the Arkology was destroyed, but Trance still managed to cripple the
Worldship with her powers.
