Overview
A determined captain, a sentient warship, and an eclectic crew wage an urgent battle to save the universe in Gene Roddenberry's "Andromeda". Striving to rebuild the Systems Commonwealth, Captain Dylan Hunt and his crew journey to distant worlds aboard the advanced starship, Andromeda Ascendant. Enemies abound at every turn, from the treacherous Nietzcheans to the dreaded Magog. What began as a dream has now become a necessity. Will courage be enough?

"Under the Night" (Episode 101)
The Andromeda is under attack! Lured into a brutal battle near a black hole, Commonwealth Captain Dylan Hunt orders his crew to abandon ship. The Andromeda becomes frozen in time at the event horizon; until a salvage mining ship tows it free it...300 years later. Dylan must come to terms with the loss of his crew, his way of life...and the strange invaders who now demand control of the glorious Andromeda!

"An Affirming Flame" (Episode 102)
Martial arts Cyborgs and Nietzschean mercenaries are after Dylan. But their murderous employer, Gerentex, decides to destroy what he can't steal. As he pushes the Andromeda back into the black hole, Dylan and the abandoned crew of the salvage ship Eureka Maru must join forces to save themselves...and the Commonwealth.

"To Loose the Fateful Lightning" (Episode 103)
When Dylan, Harper, and Beka board a battle worn guard station, they are confronted by a society of savage child warriors. Descendants of the Commonwealth, the children believe Dylan is their Messiah. Dylan unknowingly authorizes the genocide of an entire Magog-inhabited solar system. The day of lightning is NOW!

"D Minus Zero" (Episode 104)
Tensions build. Outside...the wreckage of an unarmed High Guard medical ship draws Dylan and the crew of the Andromeda straight into a violent ambush. Inside...Dylan and Beka have a dramatic disagreement over command -- his ship, her crew. Pursued by a mysterious enemy ship that won't give up, Dylan orders the Andromeda to hide in the dangerous radiation of a star until the inevitable showdown.

"Double Helix" (Episode 105)
Dylan's hopes of rebuilding the Commonwealth place him on the receiving end of a treacherous Nietzschean assault. The enemy tries to entice fellow Nietzschean Tyr to help them destroy the ship. Awaiting Tyr if he complies is a wife to carry on his proud DNA -- the double helix that is central to Nietzschean culture. But doing so will mean the end of the Andromeda and death to her crew.
