Ancient Future
AIRED:
Following up on some mysterious magnetic disturbances, Loengard and Sayers head north to Chiliwack, Alaska. There, Reverend Gary Barrow, a local minister, introduces them to his uncle, Tug Barrow. Told of an old Tlingit Indian legend about a star that fell from the sky 2,000 years ago, John and Kim suspect the tribe had contact with the Hive long ago and may even be guarding a ship that crashed near their village in 100BC. But, while investigating the sacred Tlingit site, John and Kim are caught in the massive Alaskan earthquake of 1964.moreless

  • So far this was the worst episode of all.

    So far this was the worst episode of the whole series. An indian legend mixed up with alien invasion is a plot that was very happily used many times before. But this one was so huuuuge that it basically made me laugh. A totem with EBE face? Come on!

    Episode looked for me like a pilot episode but it was meant to be broadcasted later. My thinking is due to fact of bad filming and actors play. The dialogue lines were weak and predictable and sometimes even naive. The special effects were so lousy that even in the series in the late 80's we have seen better.

    The episode barely moves the plot farther. I think that it might be due to some rumours that the show must come to an end after the first season...moreless
