Alien Nation: The Udara Legacy (1997)

Based on the 1988 film Alien Nation, this is the fifth and final spin off film from the 1989 TV series that followed the original film. Starring the cast of the TV series this is a made for TV film that came after the TV Series failed to get past the first season.

The final made for TV movie sees a conspiracy within the Newcomer population, a rebel organisation’s previously programmed sleeper agents are being activated and taking action that causes problems for Matt and George. I do not think that this was the planned finale as it starts a new story that puts many of the main cast at risk without you really beliving anything will happen, it does feel very much like an extended episode of the TV series again.

Very much not the planned ending for the series but still a fitting and strong last episode within an extended series of a programme I would like to have seen more of. Overall this series is a solid 3 stars with this film continuing the trend, overall a recommend from me.
