What They Say
As the valiant band of freedom fighters led by Scott Bernard makes its way to Reflex Point, they encounter evidence of a world they never knew. Allegiances are strained as the end game is sight. The real drama of these episodes revolves around the way each hero faces the realization that life on Earth will never be the same. The result is bold, intelligent storytelling which remains the hallmark of this landmark series.
