The show was set in a future in which humanity dwells in space stations orbiting a dying Earth.

The series, which only lasted a year, focussed on the Eden Advance team who were supposed to set up the colony for the 250 families who would arrive eighteen months later.

The series follows their trek across the planet to New Pacifica. During this time, they meet a tribe of native ground dwelling humanoid creatures known as Terrians, scavenging creatures called Grendlers, and human colonists who unknown to the Eden Advance team were already on the planet, including one called Gaal (played by Tim Curry). Tim Curry Timothy James Curry (born April 19, 1946 in Grappenhall, a district of Warrington, Cheshire, England) is a British actor, vocalist and composer perhaps best known for his role as mad scientist Dr. Frank N.

Episode Summary

1) "First Contact" Pilot #1. A group of humans leaves Earth's orbit to go to a planet 22 light years away named G889. An advance team is dispatched to prepare the colony for the remaining 249 families to follow in 2 years, however their craft crash lands. We find that G889 is inhabited by subterranean natives called Terrians.

2. "First Contact" Pilot #2. Uly is abducted by Terrians, but he is returned after they heal him from the Syndrome.

3. "The Man Who Fell to Earth (Two)". An astronaut who had previously crash-landed on G889, Gaal (Tim Curry), kills the commander (Richard Bradford). Solace has Terrian dreams.

4. "Life Lessons". Gaal tries to disrupt the survivors' encampment.

5. "Promises, Promises". Gaal has abducted several Terrians, but the colonists free them in fulfilment of a promise made in episode 2. Gaal is taken underground by the Terrians and is never seen again.

6. "A Memory Play". The colonists discover a third escape pod with people infected by a disease. The disease turns out to have been caused by a chip that was inserted into a crew-members brain back on earth. Grendler saliva is the cure. It is disclosed that the crash wasn't an accident but was sabotage by a Council agent (the woman with the chip in her head, though she had no knowledge of her actions).

7. "Water". The group run into water problems.

8. "The Church of Morgan". Morgan & Bess argue while Dr. Heller contemplates removing Uly's pineal gland at the behest of the Council member Riley. Uly is becoming an evolutionary link with the Terrians.
