Plot and production

The series is set thousands of years in the future, and revolves around The Systems Commonwealth, a constitutional monarchy based in a distant star system called Tarn-Vedra. Humankind is a part of The Commonwealth, having been discovered by its members thousands of years prior. The Commonwealth is based out of three galaxies; our own, The Milky Way, Triangulum Galaxy, and the Andromeda Galaxy, located 3 million light years away. Ships travel from one end of the Commonwealth to the other through slipstreams, following pre-guided roller coaster like pathways through the cosmos to and from their destination.

The Commonwealth claims to be a utopian society, but it is actually in a state of war with the Magog, a humanoid species with bat-like faces that is dedicated to war. A few years earlier, to show good faith as a result of peace talks, the Commonwealth ceded to the Magog a key homeworld. This homeworld is a key planet of one of the Commonwealth's member species, the genetically engineered Nietzscheans. The Nietzscheans, displeased with this peace agreement wit the Magog, secretly attempt to usurp control of the Commonwealth. This is also the embodiment of their basic beliefs, as they see themselves as the race described as the "Übermensch" by famed philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.

The Commonwealth has a large and vast defense armada, The Argosy. The protagonist of the series, Dylan Hunt, is the captain of a key Commonwealth flagship (which is itself sentient and therefore a major character), named Andromeda. Argosy (originally meaning a large cargo ship) may refer to: American pulp magazine Argosy Magazine a 1920s British airliner, the Armstrong Whitworth Argosy a 1960s British military transport aircraft, the Armstrong Whitworth AW.660 Argosy the Space Navy of the Systems Commonwealth from the science fiction television series Andromeda. ... Kevin Sorbo as Dylan Hunt in Andromeda Dylan Hunt is the name of two fictional characters created for television by Gene Roddenberry. ...


The entire Argosy, including Captain Hunt, is caught by surprise in the first engagement of the Nietzschen uprising. He is forced to evacuate his crew, but his ship, the Andromeda Ascendant, gets caught on the edge of a black hole's event horizon, effectively freezing him in time. The Andromeda Ascendant is a fictional starship in the television series Gene Roddenberrys Andromeda. ... Simulated view of a black hole in front of the Milky Way. ... For the science fiction film, see Event Horizon (film). ...


Over 300 years later, a salvage crew (on the cargo ship Eureka Maru) stumbles upon Hunt's ship. The Systems Commonwealth and the entire Argosy have fallen in the centuries since he was frozen in time, beginning an era known as The Long Night. Hunt recruits the salvage crew to join him in an attempt to restore the Systems Commonwealth and "rekindle the light of civilization." Salvage may refer to: Look up salvage in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... The Eureka Maru is a fictional starship in the television series Andromeda. ... Cities are a major hallmark of human civilization. ...


The salvage crew is comprised of its leader Beka Valentine, a con-artist and expert pilot; a Nietzschean hit-man named Tyr Anasazi (of the key but small Kodiak pride of Nietzscheans); a supergenius engineer named Seamus Harper (rescued from Nietzschean-enslaved Earth by Beka) who can plug his mind directly into computer systems; Trance Gemini, and Rev Bem. "Rev" is short for Reverend; although he is a Magog and thus violent by nature, he has discovered a non-violent, Taoism-like religious order called The Way, and become a Wayist priest. As for Trance, little is known at first about this pixie-like purple female alien other than that she has a tail and seems somewhat distant.

Season One

Season One cast
Season One cast

Season One of the series shows Dylan Hunt assembling the crew and adjusting to the new universe, while pursuing the creation of the New Systems Commonwealth. The idea of the New Commonwealth proves unpopular; only 6 worlds actually sign the Commonwealth charter in this season. Major powers like the Than Hegemony or Sabra and Jaguar prides are not really interested in the Commonwealth; Dylan also manages to make quite a few enemies (including the most powerful Nietzschean pride, Drago-Kazov) himself. Image File history File links Andromeda_cast. ... Image File history File links Andromeda_cast. ...


Dylan also encounters several dysfunctional remnants of the old High Guard (to which he belonged) and witnesses the consequences of some of his own actions 300 years before. He realizes that the Old Commonwealth had indeed made some mistakes the repetition of which he has to avoid.


The unification of Andromeda's crew is a major theme of Season One. Dylan's new crew doesn't really believe in the idea of the Commonwealth, and joins him only for personal gain. To their surprise they find that having something to fight for is not a bad thing. In the season finale Beka (Dylan's First Officer) even promises him to continue his mission if he dies.


Trance is a particularly interesting member of the crew. Initially she seems to be a ditzy and naive girl, warm and compassionate but serving little actual purpose on the ship. But she is quickly demonstrated to be more than she seems. Apparently Trance has the ability to foresee the future (or, as she explains herself in one episode, all possible futures). She used this ability several times to help her friends, but her true goals remain unknown. The show hints that she engineered an important event — the Battle of Witchhead, where the last remains of the Old Commonwealth fleet were destroyed, taking most of the Nietzschean forces with them — by "accidentally" sending the Andromeda back in time and pulling various members of the crew by the right strings. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


Dylan himself has a difficult time accepting the fact that the universe he lived in no longer exists and that all his friends are long dead. In a bizarre accident he actually manages to contact his fiancee Sara 300 years before and even to teleport on her ship — but he has to return back alone as he knows that the New Commonwealth is more important than his own life.


In the season finale the Andromeda encounters the Magog Worldship, a huge structure of twenty connected planets and an artificial sun. The Worldship contains trillions of Magog and is equipped with a unique weapon — the Point Singularity Projector which creates miniature black holes. Andromeda is heavily damaged, Tyr and Harper are abducted to the Worldship (and followed by Rev), and the rest of the crew are badly injured. The Magog are an alien race in the television series Andromeda // The Species The origins of the Magog are unknown. ...


Season Two

Season Two begins with the crew of Andromeda in a seemingly hopeless situation. However, Dylan is revived by Trance and goes to the Magog Worldship with Rommie to recover Tyr, Harper and Rev. Tyr and Harper are both infested with Magog eggs, and Rev's loyalty is strained when he encounters the being known as the Spirit of the Abyss, the creator and god of the Magog. Although Dylan rescues everyone, he suffers heavy losses. Andromeda is badly damaged, Rev has a spiritual crisis, and there seems to be no possible way to extract the Magog larvae from Harper, so he has only a few months to live. The Spirit of the Abyss as General Burma The Spirit of the Abyss is the leader and god of the Magog in the TV series Andromeda. ...


The season shows the crew reacting to the sudden necessity of the New Commonwealth after the discovery of the Worldship (which will arrive to the Known Worlds in a few years), as they continue to make sure the dream comes true. Many worlds became more willing to sign the charter after learning of the Worldship. Dylan becomes more ruthless in his actions as well.


The episode "Ouroboros" (2:12) in the middle of this season became a major turning point for the whole series. "Ouroboros" was the last episode of Robert Hewitt Wolfe, the show's original developer and head writer. The producers allegedly felt that the series was becoming too intellectual and complicated (see Controversy over Robert Hewitt Wolfe's departure). One immediately visible change was Trance's transformation. She exchanged places with her own future version; New Trance had a different (golden-skinned) appearance and much more serious personality. Robert Hewitt Wolfe is an American television producer and scriptwriter. ...


Brent Stait (Rev Bem) also left Andromeda in "Ouroboros" because of his developing allergy to Magog make-up. He reprises his role twice later, in Seasons Three and Four. Brent Stait (born September 9, 1959) is a Canadian actor best known for his role as Louis Ferretti in the science fiction television series Stargate SG-1. ...


In the second half of Season Two, restoration of the Commonwealth becomes a much less significant theme. The show mostly concentrated on Star Trek-style standalone adventures. However, by the end of the season the New Commonwealth had gained a new powerful warfleet and a total of fifty worlds. The current Star Trek franchise logo Star Trek is an American science fiction entertainment series and media franchise. ...


Tyr is revealed to have a son, who is a genetic reincarnation of Drago Museveni, founder of Nietzschean race. Since the Nietzscheans believe that Drago's reincarnation will necessarily be a great leader, Tyr gets a unique opportunity to unite all Nietzschean prides. He doesn't use it yet, biding his time. This article is about the Nietzschean race in the television series Andromeda. ...


In the season finale the Commonwealth is finally reinstated. A ceremony is held on board of the Andromeda, but interrupted by the attack of unknown extradimensional aliens.


Season Three

Season Three had the most episodic format of all. The Commonwealth is already reunited, but there is not much progress in the fight with the Magog and the Abyss.


Several episodes of Season Three explore Trance and her actual role. One episode (The Dark Backward) is filmed completely from Trance's viewpoint, showing that she indeed "lives" through all possible alternate futures before choosing the right one.


This season shows several confusing additions, refits, and changes to the Andromeda, its crew and the Commonwealth. The Andromeda gains a highly trained High guard crew in some episodes only to have them disappear in the next, leaving the core command crew to deal with problems on the ship without help. The capabilities of the ship increase and decrease and the characters often react in ways which are contrary to their established personalities. Most noteworthy is the appearance of multiple squadrons of slip fighters who fight under Beka's staunch leadership in the final episode, when in the previous episode, where a squadron of slipfighters would have been handy, they are not utilized.[citation needed]


Tyr makes his move in the end of the season. He implants his son's DNA into his own cells, and goes on to reunite the Nietzscheans and separate them from the Commonwealth again. The season ends with Nietzscheans withdrawing from the Commonwealth and Tyr leaving the Andromeda. The structure of part of a DNA double helix Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a nucleic acid that contains the genetic instructions for the development and function of living organisms. ...


Season Four

In Season Four, Dylan is nearly outlawed by the Commonwealth he himself had restored. The Collectors (originally keepers of historical information unknown to anyone else), allied with the Abyss, manipulate the government of the New Commonwealth to show him in a bad light. The Abyss infiltrates the Commonwealth using many other agents as well.


Eventually the Collectors unite with Tyr and his Nietzscheans. Tyr mistrusts the Abyss, but hopes to defeat it. He tries to find a map to the Route of Ages — a portal connecting all universes together. It is possible to weaken the Abyss by passing through it. Dylan gets the map instead, but he allows Tyr to follow Andromeda through the Route of Ages, as Tyr knows more about the Abyss. Andromeda is transported into a weird universe where thoughts manifest as reality. With Trance's help, Dylan defeats Tyr who tried to make a deal with the Abyss. Spoiler warning: In the fictional universe of the television show Andromeda, the Route of Ages is a portal in space-time, sought by many of the shows characters throughout season four (see MacGuffin). ...


Since the Route of Ages closes before the Andromeda can get back, Dylan has to use Trance's help. She reveals that she is the Avatar of the Sun, with "the power to create and destroy". Trance destroys Andromeda and re-creates it in the right universe.


In this season, Dylan also finds a new crew member — Nietzschean Telemachus Rhade, who doesn't accept his race's betrayal of the Commonwealth and agrees to join Dylan. Rhade proves to be more manageable than Tyr. Telemachus Rhade is a fictional character in the television series Gene Roddenberrys Andromeda. ...


The Magog evolve and become more intelligent and cunning. In the season finale their Worldship is rediscovered. It is heading towards the Arkology, an old space station with very pacifist population. Dylan frantically tries to convince them that they have to defend themselves, but the people of the Arkology hope to make peace with the Magog. The Magog are an alien race in the television series Andromeda // The Species The origins of the Magog are unknown. ...


They pay dearly for that mistake, as the Magog never make peace with anyone. Andromeda tries to defend the Arkology against the Worldship, but is outnumbered horribly. The Arkology is destroyed with all its inhabitants. Rhade, Beka and Harper are left in absolutely hopeless situations. Rommie explodes after being shot through her stomach.


Trance asks Dylan to escape on a slipfighter through the Route of Ages, claiming that now there is nothing more important than saving his life; Marlowe, Arkology's leader (who had disappeared several hours before the battle) tells Dylan that they both are Paradine, two of the few ancient beings with incredible powers. Dylan reluctantly leaves through the Route (in a strange sequence where he finds himself in a large dark room and seemingly meets another version of himself). Trance turns into a sun and crashes into the Worldship on the Andromeda. In the science-fiction universe of Gene Roddenberrys Andromeda, a race of beings known as the Paradine exist. ...


The writers didn't know at the time whether there would be a Season Five, so the finale is intentionally ambiguous (which arguably makes it more dramatic). It seemingly shows that everyone except Dylan had died in the battle, but in Season Five everyone survived.


Season Five

Season Five cast.

Season Five starts with an unusual premise. Dylan finds himself transported into Seefra system — nine identical barren worlds with superstitious population and two dim suns. Technology (especially spaceflight) is shunned, and water is treasured because of constant drought. Flavin, another Paradine, meets Dylan here but gives only cryptic hints and leaves soon. Image File history File links Season_5_Andromeda_crew. ... Image File history File links Season_5_Andromeda_crew. ... Seefra is a fictional planetary system in the Andromeda universe. ... In the science-fiction universe of Gene Roddenberrys Andromeda, a race of beings known as the Paradine exist. ...


Dylan finds Rhade, Beka and Harper on Seefra, but, to his amazement, they all spent different periods of time here. Harper, in particular, arrived three years earlier with the remains of Rommie. He tried to repair her but failed, eventually building another android, Doyle, with some of Rommie's memories. Initially he convinces her that she is human, but later her true identity is revealed by a rebel android. (The "behind the scenes" reason for replacing Rommie with Doyle is Lexa Doig's pregnancy. Rommie was rebuilt by Doyle late in this season.)


Trance is also found, but she is weakened by her attempt to transport Andromeda and its crew to Seefra. She doesn't quite remember who she is and what she is supposed to do. Trance underwent a metamorphosis yet again; she is still golden-skinned but appears younger, and her personality resembles her first purple incarnation.


Andromeda itself is transported to Seefra as well, but it has no power and no way to restore it. Trance partially recharges the ships generators, but Andromeda still cannot move, and its AI behavior is erratic.


The first half of the season deals with three main themes: Dylan's conflict with his crew, his attempts to restore Andromeda's power and eventual discovery of the true role of Trance and Seefra system.


Rhade, Beka and Harper are all angry at Dylan for leaving them behind in the Battle of Arkology and for throwing them to Seefra without any way to return back to the Known Worlds. Their loyalty is strained several times, but seems finally reaffirmed after the intervention by Stranger, a Paradine sent by Dylan from an alternate future.


Andromeda's power is eventually restored with ancient Vedran artifacts, but it is still unable to leave Seefra. Seefra seems to be located in a "pocket universe," and the only way out is the Route of Ages. Although some characters come and leave through it, Dylan can't use it. Spoiler warning: In the fictional universe of the television show Andromeda, the Route of Ages is a portal in space-time, sought by many of the shows characters throughout season four (see MacGuffin). ...


Seefra turns out to be Tarn-Vedra, long lost capital of the Commonwealth. But Vedrans themselves left it long ago, disillusioned with humans. Seefra-1 is the original Tarn-Vedra and Seefra-2 to 9 are copies of it. Tarn-Vedra's original sun was somehow replaced by two artificial constructs, Methus-1 and Methus-2. Methus-2 is now damaged and emits deadly flares, which are the reason for Seefra's drought. Tarn-Vedra is a fictional planet in the Andromeda universe. ...


Methus Diagram — a blueprint for Seefra system, recovered with the help of mysterious DJ Virgil Vox — also reveals the purpose of the eight extra planets. The Vedran sun will return someday, and destroy Seefra-2 to 9 in order to slow down and take its position. But because of the damage to Methus-2 this mechanism is not working, and the sun threatens to devastate the system completely.


Trance remembers her identity when she meets Ione, avatar of the Tarn-Vedra moon. She is the Tarn-Vedra sun. When she realizes this, her sun enters the Seefra system, and Dylan has to find a way to fix Methus-2 and evacuate eight doomed planets to Seefra-1. Ione may refer to: Ione, California Ione, Oregon Ione, Washington Hurricane Ione This is a disambiguation page — a navigational aid which lists other pages that might otherwise share the same title. ...


Trance's "sisters" (who call themself "the Nebula"), however, try to persuade her to join them. In their opinion the fate of Dylan, Seefra or the Known Worlds is irrelevant. Trance stubbornly refuses, and the Nebula attempts to replace her (all Avatars of the Suns look alike). Real Trance is imprisoned inside Methus-2, and it takes some time for Dylan to realize the deception and rescue her.


Dylan proceeds with the evacuation of the Seefra planets, although his plans are hindered by General Burma, a religious leader from Seefra-5. Burma is later revealed to be under the control of the Abyss.


In the series finale, the Vedran sun is back in its place and people are safe on Seefra-1. Trance then contacts the Nebula — the Lambent Kith Nebula, supreme council of the galaxies which includes fifty Avatars. Trance was once the oldest member of the Nebula, but disagreed with their views of organic life as something insignificant and left long ago. Together with Dylan she appeals to the Nebula and its leader Maura, who plans to destroy the Abyss by expanding the All Forces Nullification Point until it consumes all galaxies. This incidentally will destroy everything alive in existence; only Seefra will survive. Maura is a female name. ...


Maura refuses to reconsider their plans, but allows Dylan and the Andromeda to return to the Known Worlds. When the Andromeda slipstreams to Tarazed, Dylan finds out that only four days have passed since the Battle of Arkology, and the Magog Worldship is crippled but still operational. Rhade reunites with his wife (only to return to the Andromeda shortly).


Andromeda visits Earth (where Harper secretly plans to stay), but as soon as the ship arrives in the system, the planet is promptly destroyed by the Abyss. A huge Nietzschean fleet emerges from behind the debris, and Andromeda barely escapes.


Dylan begins to suspect Maura's motives and soon realizes she is the avatar of the Abyss and that all of the Nebula were under its control. Maura had destroyed all Paradines (except Dylan). Trance annihilates Maura in a fight.


After a massive battle with Nietzscheans, Dylan checks the Methus Diagram once again and discovers that Trance's sun is capable of destroying the Abyss. Andromeda returns to Seefra through the Route of Ages, followed by the Abyss. Trance manages to pull her sun closer and plunge it into the Abyss, burning it.


The Abyss is finally destroyed, and Dylan's battle is over. The Route of Ages transforms into a slipstream portal, allowing the Commonwealth fleet to return to Tarn-Vedra.


This season was received poorly. Despite having an overall plot arc, it is often criticized as incoherent and almost turning into fantasy, a sharp contrast to the hard science fiction of seasons 1 and 2. The finale left many important questions unanswered. Andromeda fans are trying to address them in "virtual" seasons 6 and 7.

Controversy over Robert Hewitt Wolfe's departure

Controversy erupted during the midst of the second season when series developer and executive producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe announced he had been released from the show's production, though his influence was felt through the completion of the second season; at that point, Bob Engels was brought on to executive produce the series. The reason for the change was purportedly to make the show more episodic and open to "casual viewing," as Wolfe's version — although episodic — had many continuing plotlines and story arcs. After the show's final episode aired, Wolfe wrote and published on his site a one-act play titled "Coda" that explained his version of the show (and without contradicting the already aired episodes). Robert Hewitt Wolfe is an American television producer and scriptwriter. ...


In discussion on his website's forums and various interviews over the last two years, Wolfe has elaborated that he was released from the production staff after he refused to shift the show's focus more heavily onto Kevin Sorbo's character, Dylan Hunt, by essentially making all of the show's episodes Hunt-centric. The events of the episode "Ouroboros", the final episode written by Wolfe, introduced the last major changes that Wolfe was willing to make to the series. Kevin Sorbo (born September 24, 1958) is an American actor probably best known for the role of Hercules on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. ...


When Engels took over and the show began the more "episodic" format, reactions from fans were mixed. The new producers tried to lighten the "doom and gloom" seriousness of the original story arc, while at the same time focusing more on the Dylan Hunt character. As a result, many felt that the quality of the series had declined.


Continuity, at least, did indeed break down (see 'Season 3'). For example, in a Season Five episode, Dylan incorrectly referred to his stranding at the Battle of Witchhead, when in fact he was betrayed at the Battle of Hephaistos. The Battle of Witchhead took place one year later, and was influenced by the time-travelling crew of the Andromeda from 303 years in the future. (However, the exact wording of the conversation leaves open the possibility that he is making a blanket statement referring to the entire war, segueing from a reply about being lost on the event horizon of the Hephaistos Singularity to the eventual destruction of the Commonwealth fleet at the Battle of Witchhead without specifically mentioning the happenings between.)

Though we do not know much of her origins, in the episode Pitiless as the Sun, she suggests that her race was bred as slaves, however this turned out to be yet another of her misleading jokes.
Rev Bem (Reverend"Red Plague" Behemial) (Seasons 1-2) Brent Stait Science Officer An unusually intelligent Magog who has accepted Wayism religion. A complete pacifist, rejecting any violence and hating himself because of his race. Often serves as a counsellor for other crew members. His birth name translates from Magog as "Red Plague".
Andromeda Lexa Doig Ship AI An artificial intelligence which controls the ship (and numerous robots and androids) and can replace most of the functions of crew. Can appear as a human-like woman on any display or as a hologram. The display and the hologram possess quite different aspects of the AI personallity.
Rommie Lexa Doig AI's android avatar An autonomous android physically indistinguishable from a human. Her personality is separate from the Andromeda and Rommie is more emotional and even capable of love as a result.
Doyle (Season 5) Brandy Ledford AI's second avatar An android built by Harper when Rommie was destroyed. Even more "human" than Rommie; was initially programmed to think she is human. Harper used some of Rommie's remains to create Doyle.

Recurring and notable guest characters

  • Gaheris Rhade, a Nietzschean; Dylan's previous First Officer who had betrayed him at the Battle of Hephaistos, accidentally causing the Andromeda to move at the event horizon of a black hole and freeze in time. The alternate history episode The Unconquerable Man, where he manages to kill Hunt and tries to restore the Commonwealth himself, portrays him in a more sympathetic light, explaining his primary reason for betraying the Commonwealth was a desire to protect his people from the Abyss and becoming disillusioned with them when they turned on each other after the Fall. Feeling remorseful at killing his best friend Hunt, he goes back in time to allow Hunt to kill him instead, thus guaranteeing a new Commonwealth. (Steve Bacic)
  • Gerentex, a Nightsider who had employed Eureka Maru's crew to salvage the Andromeda. (John Tench)
  • Freya, a Nietzschean of the Orca pride, briefly married to Tyr. (Dylan Bierk)

  • Spirit of the Abyss, a malevolent entity which commands the Magog and appears to be the mastermind of many sabotages and attacks on the New Commonwealth. (Robert Saunders)
  • Professor Logitch, an Inari scientist who tried to interrogate Trance. (William B. Davis)

  • General Burma, a sect leader from Seefra-5. (Hiro Kanagawa)
  • Maura, Avatar of the Sun, leader of the Lambent Kith Nebula. (Emmanuelle Vaugier)
  • The series is noted for having an especially high quota of "beautiful" people. In addition to a very coherent sense of fashion and styling being applied to the cast's attire, almost all significant characters in any given episode are especially attractive, particularly the female characters. This is often noted by the ship's mechanic Harper. It has been speculated that this explains Harper's lack of serious relationships with the opposite sex, compared to his more attractive crewmates who frequently liaise with other characters they encounter.

Andromeda universe

Slipstream

Slipstream is the primary mode of travel for ships in the Andromeda universe, and the only known method of travelling faster than the speed of light. The Vedran discovery of the Slipstream was instrumental in the formation of their interstellar empire, which became the precursor of the Systems Commonwealth. This article needs additional references or sources for verification. ... A line showing the speed of light on a scale model of Earth and the Moon The speed of light in a vacuum is an important physical constant denoted by the letter c for constant or the Latin word celeritas meaning swiftness.[1] It is the speed of all electromagnetic... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


Curiously, slipstream cannot be navigated by AIs. Only organic pilots can "sense" a way to their destination, and although AIs are fitted on all large ships, they always require an organic pilot for interstellar travel.


Systems Commonwealth

Main article: Systems Commonwealth

The Systems Commonwealth was a huge utopian civilization, spanning three major galaxies of the Local Group. It was founded by Vedrans, the first race to discover slipstream, and lasted in peace for about 5500 years until the Nietzschean revolt. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... A member of the Local Group of galaxies, irregular galaxy Sextans A is 4. ... Tarn-Vedra is a fictional planet in the Andromeda universe. ... This article is about the Nietzschean race in the television series Andromeda. ...


Dylan eventually managed to restore the Commonwealth (though not to its former glory; initially it had only 50 members while the Old Commonwealth had included more than a million worlds). However, the New Commonwealth soon fell victim to internal corruption masterminded by the group known as the Collectors, allied with the Abyss.


Major star systems

  • Tarn-Vedra, the capital of the Old Systems Commonwealth and Vedran homeworld. It completely vanished from slipstream soon after the Nietzschean rebellion, contributing into ensuing chaos. Dylan was born on Tarn-Vedra, and one of his motivations for restoring the Commonwealth was search for his own lost home.
  • Hephaistos, a system with significant Nietzschean population devastated by a rogue black hole in the pilot episode, and a place of Dylan's imprisonment in time for 300 years. It turned out in Season Five that the Andromeda still somehow retained a connection to this black hole.
  • Earth was ravaged by Nietzschean occupation and Magog assaults during the Long Night. Harper was born and acquired his notable survival skills there.
  • Tarazed, a world which survived the Long Night largely unscathed. It became the first capital of the New Commonwealth.
  • San-Ska-Re, a Than homeworld and a major power in post-Fall Known Worlds. Didn't actually appear on screen.
  • Mobius, a barren world with underground cities. Mobius was ruled by ruthless dictators for many centuries but joined the New Commonwealth when the "Great Compass" Venetri resigned.
  • Arkology, a huge space station with pacifist population and the site of the Andromeda's final confrontation with Magog Worldship. The Andromeda lost and the Arkology was destroyed, but Trance still managed to cripple the Worldship with her powers.
  • Seefra, a mysterious artificial system of nine planets and two suns where Dylan and his crew were transported after the Battle of Arkology.

Major races

Main article: List of Andromeda races
  • Vedrans, the first race to discover slipstream that connects the entire universe. The Vedrans went on to conquer the Known Worlds, building the Vedran Empire. The Empire was plagued by internal conflicts and eventually was peacefully transformed into the Systems Commonwealth.
  • Nietzscheans, a group of humans who believed in self-improvement via genetic engineering and intense competition, and evolved into a separate subspecies (Homo sapiens invictus). Nietzscheans are responsible for the Fall of the Commonwealth; however, they failed to replace it with the Nietzschean Empire (as they had originally planned) because of constant betrayals and conflicts between different prides.
  • Humans make up about 70% of the Known Worlds population. Subspecies with minor genetic enhancements (like the Inari) are common.
  • Magog, a race of savage semi-intelligent killers, feared throughout the Known Worlds. Magogs have to eat fresh meat to sustain themselves and to lay eggs into sentient beings to procreate. Magog Worldship is a structure of 20 planets and an artificial sun, home to trillions of Magog and a grave threat to the Known Worlds.
  • Perseids, a race of scientists and bureaucrats.
  • Than-Thre-Kull (Than), a tough insectoid race divided into castes.
  • Kalderans, a xenophobic reptilian race. They managed to reverse engineer their own slipstream drive.
  • Paradine, an evolved form of the Vedran, which looks like ordinary humans. The Paradine apparently had a special role in dealing with the Avatars of the Suns and the Route of Ages, but they are all but extinct now.
  • Avatars of the Suns, humanoid forms of stars with great powers.

Andromeda (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1530 words)
Andromeda is one of two TV series (to date) based upon concepts Roddenberry had created as early as the 1960s and 1970s.
Controversy erupted during the midst of the second season when series developer Robert Hewitt Wolfe announced he had been released from the show’s production, though his influence was felt through the completion of the second season; at that point, Bob Engels was brought on to executive produce the series.
The series was subsequently picked up by the Sci-Fi Channel in the U.S. Unlike in other sci-fi series, recurring characters are often separated, and don’t appear always together.
