    USA (ended 2002)
    From the producer of Eco-challenge and Survivor comes a reality competition program designed exclusively for America's elite warriors. Delta Force, Green Beret, Marine Recon, Navy SEALs, Police SWAT, and CIA Special Operations are brought together to compete in a contest of combat readiness. These military and law enforcement officers are known to be America's heroes and peace-keepers. Twenty-four men have been assembled at Camp Windstorm, a simulated working military base commanded by decorated ex-Navy Seal, Rudy Boesch. Commander Boesch assigned the men randomly to four six-man squads namely: Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, and Delta. These four teams will compete at a 15-week evolution to see who is the best of the best. Each week, two of the four teams will go head-to-head in the realistic SWAT and combat missions like going behind enemy lines to rescue a down pilot, destroying an enemy tank, rescuing a hostage from gang members in an urban police shoot-out, and more realistic missions like taking out an enemy fuel gun, rescuing a POW, and assaulting a terrorist-controlled illegal arms operation. Each team will compete separately against the Shadow Squad, an overwhelming enemy force made up of specially trained soldiers. With no live ammunition involved in the mission, all squad members will be using the Miles Laser System. They will be wearing laser-activated sensors and carry rifle reproductions that act and sound like real guns but actually emit laser pulses. When a squad member is shot, a buzzer will go off, and the squad member must fall down to the ground and remain inactive for the rest of the mission. The team who wins the mission moves on, while the loosing team will make a tough choice. The rule is: loose a mission, loose a man. The high stakes lead to explosive personal and human dramas, gut-wrenching decisions and moral dillemas. All taking place in a tournament which in the end will crown one of the four teams as a team champion, and ultimately one man the best of the best - the Combat Missions champion and the winner of $250,000 grand prize. Combat Missions -- 24 special forces and SWAT operators battle until one man stands alone. Who will win and who will go?moreless

    Itsy Bitsy Spider originated--based on the children's song--as an animated short subject by the Hyperion studio in 1992 which appeared with the animated feature film Bebe's Kids. The short centered around a mischievous spider (voice of Frank Welker) who befriends a shy, sweet little girl (Thora Birch), much to the arachnophobic frustration of her piano teacher (Charlotte Rae). The teacher summons a gung-ho exterminator who winds up destroying the teacher's house but not his eight-legged, four-eyed prey. Itsy Bitsy Spider became a weekly series on USA in 1993. The little girl was named Leslie (now voiced by Francesca Marie Smith) and Itsy was still fruitlessly pursued by the Exterminator (now voiced by Matt Frewer). Two seasons of shows were produced; it has not been replayed anywhere following its cancellation in 1996.moreless

    Cover Me is a comedic drama TV series developed by Shaun Cassidy for the USA Network that follows the Arno family, a unique family of five who finds themselves pulled along into the father's job. When Danny and Barbara (Peter Dobson and Melora Hardin) decided to have kids, they made a pact to never hide the details of their work. Something that was easier said than done, considering Danny Arno is an undercover FBI agent.

Pretty and romantic, sixteen-year-old Celeste (Cameron Richardson) is the only one reluctant to be pulled in to the cases, mostly because she ultimately gains a crush on the enemy. Fourteen-year-old Ruby (Antoinette Picatto) is constantly rallying to do anything and everything, whether it's from becoming each school's homecoming queen or having the fastest gun-cleaning time out of her family. Then, there's eleven-year-old Chance (Michael Angarano), who as the youngest is a natural con artist with such a knack for spy life his parents' wouldn't know what to do without him. Based on a real life undercover family, the Arnos put their talents, whether it's from putting a defector or a terrorist away or getting the kids in bed on time, to use.moreless

    USA (ended 1995)
    ExoSquad is set in the early 22nd century, and by that time humanity has made two major advancements. They have developed terraforming methods, which has made it possible for humans to inhabit not only Earth, but Venus and Mars as well. The second major achievement was in the field of genetic engineering, which enabled the creation of a new race, called Neo sapiens. This new race, since it was to be used as slave labor in the mines on Mars, was created to be physically superior to Homo sapiens (referred to as Terrans). A Neo sapien is stronger, larger, and can survive in harsher conditions that his human counterpart. A Neo sapien requires less food and no sleep. One feature denied to the Neo sapien race was the ability to procreate, thus the only way for a new Neo sapien to be created is in a brood chamber. Despite this shortcoming, some Neo sapiens resemble males, while others tend to be considered female. Mentally and psychologically Neo sapiens are similar to Terrans, for they are not any more intelligent and they do experience emotions (although they often seem tempered or dulled).

    Neo sapiens had been created decades before ExoSquad epic begins. Fifty years beforehand the Neo sapiens rebelled against their masters, in an attempt to win their own freedom. A new Terran invention, the e-frame, was instrumental in the suppression of the revolt. The exo-frame is a machine that the user climbs into an operates in part by a cybernetic link. The e-frame becomes a larger, stronger extension of the human body (normally 8'-12' tall with two arms and two legs). When equipped with weaponry, such as missiles or machine guns, it becomes a potent weapon. In battle it can act similar to a tank, in that it is heavily armored and carries more firepower than an infantry soldier. Because e-frames have flight capability they are effective in providing air support for ground troops. They are also used in a manner similar to fighters when two opposing space fleets engage each other. An exosquad is, as the name suggests, a squadron of these exo-frames. The Neo sapiens did not have this technology during their first rebellion, and it led to their downfall. Apparently the revolt was not restricted to only Mars, although that is where the uprising was centered. The rebellion was organized by a Neo sapien named Marsala, who later joins the ExoFleet and is a member during the second rebellion. This first Neo sapien revolt was finally supressed by his capture, after his whereabouts were revealed when his captured (by Winfield?) brood brother Phaeton was threatened with death.

    Although Neo sapiens were granted some rights, as well as control of the planet Mars, they were by no means equal, de jure or de facto, to their Terran counterparts. Many Terrans continued to harbor prejudice against the Neo sapiens, while others did consider Neo sapiens as equals. The First Neo sapien Rebellion actually did little to change the status of Neo sapiens, and many of them hoped to eventually achieve equality.

    The Neo sapiens were not the only disenfranchised people in the solar system. The Pirates are descendants of Earth criminals that were sentenced to hard labor, and were sent to mining operations on the moons of the outer planets. With the creation of Neo sapiens, whose physical abilities made them better slaves, the pirate ancestors were abandoned on those moons. They survived, however, and were able to build spaceships of their own, so that they could attack other (mostly Earth) ships and steal whatever they needed or wanted. Many of them developed a sense of hatred for the Terrans (who lived in luxury) and the ExoFleet (whose sole purpose seemed to be to hunt them), and often the feeling was mutual.

    Phaeton, who had ascended to Governor of the Martian Commonwealth, seized the opportunity afforded him by the renewed Pirate threat. Phaeton had been secretly diverting funds from the Martian treasury to the production of military hardware, building guns, ships, and e-frames. Since the Terrans had not given rights to the Neo sapiens, Phaeton was determined to take those rights by force. He supported, though it probably would have occurred regardless of his support, the assembly of a large task force which had the express purpose of going to the outer planets and eliminating the Pirate threat. Most of the ExoFleet's ships and e-frames were dedicated to this effort. The fleet consisted of several ExoCarriers plus support ships, with Admiral Winfield (whose flag was on the Resolute) in command. Once the ExoFleet had reached their destination and had begun engaging the Pirates, Phaeton and his forces struck.

    The Neo sapiens quickly and easily conquered the worlds inhabited by the Terrans. General Shiva spearheaded the successful assault of Earth. General Draconis was in command of the force that subdued the relatively sparsely populated Venus. The remnants of the ExoFleet that had not been assigned to the assault on the Pirate moons were quickly overcome and were only barely able to contact the task force before they were permanently silenced.

    The task force had successfully reached its first target, and had forced a Pirate withdrawal from the moon Enceladus with relatively minor losses. A temporary crippling loss occurred when Admiral Winfield was knocked unconscious in the course of the battle. Captain Matthew Marcus assumed command of the fleet and ordered the pursuit of the Pirates to their base on Tethys. It was while preparing to attack that they received word of the Neo sapien assault. Captain Marcus froze, and Lt. J.T. Marsh called off the attack. The fleet turned and began the long trip back to Earth, and Marcus was determined to strike at the newly formed Neo sapien Commonwealth. His plan was to attack as quickly as possible, partly because he was angered by the surprise uprising, and partly because the Neo sapiens had not had time to completely consolidate their gains. Marsh objected, and attempted to override the order, on the grounds that the support ships could not keep up with the ExoCarriers, and that attacking without the entire fleet would be suicidal. Marcus had Marsh thrown in the brig and charged with mutiny, and Marsh was sentenced to die.

    The Neo sapiens had both their Earth and Martian fleets converge and intercept the approaching ExoCarriers. It was during the battle that Admiral Winfield awoke, and when he did he immediately ordered a withdrawal. Marsh had escaped from his guards with the help of his fellow members of Able Squad when the attack came, and, with Adm. Winfield's permission, took command of four e-frame squads. By directly attacking the Neo sapien flagship he forced the Neo sapiens to redirect their assault, away from the ExoCarriers, giving them the time they needed to escape. Marsh and his fellow Able Squad pilots were all sentenced to spend a year in the brig for the escape, but it was a year during which no battles were fought, since Winfield used the time to repair and rebuild the fleet.

    At that point the pace of the war increased, and the Pirates were soon drawn into the conflict. The television show ExoSquad chronicled this future conflict, focusing primarily on the heroic efforts of Able Squad, the e-frame group commanded by Lt. Marsh.moreless
