    Hi,

    I finally got around to watching the special features of what would have happened.  Here are some of them:

    • the probe comes down every 160 years (didnt work before because humans didnt have technology to spread alien signal)
    • A second probe comes down and they shoot it down ; lands in California
      • Since Ramsey has a growth problem, he also cant be infected like children, so they send him into the probe to see how it works inside
    • combined fatal waves of all the infectees would have sent a signal to the aliens to send another 80 probes down to infect the world

    These are just some of them off the top of my head; will watch later and post the rest

    Copy-Pasted from wiki: WIKI THRESHOLD

    Future storylines

    A featurette included on the August 2006 DVD release of the series confirmed a number of reported and rumored storylines that were planned had the series survived:

    • The series had a three-year arc that would have seen the series change its title each year, from Threshold to Foothold (which refers to the next level of Molly Caffrey's planning, dealing with a mass alien invasion) and Stranglehold (the response to a well-established alien presence on earth).
    • In "Vigilante" (one of the unaired episodes) it is revealed that Ramsay has a drug and alcohol problem. This would have progressed causing Ramsay to "hit bottom" at one point; meanwhile, it would be discovered that the abnormality in Ramsay's brain that caused him to be a dwarf actually made him immune to the alien infection. (This might also explain why he did not become infected when he slept with an infected woman in "Vigilante").
    • The Threshold team would learn that 80 more probe ships were headed to Earth.
    • It is learned that the aliens had been sending probes to Earth every 160 years or so, but these probes failed to start widespread infection due to the lack of travel and technology on the planet at the time. The episode "The Burning" hints at this with a buried 320 year old probe. The episode "Outbreak" continued this arc by having Lucas encounter (during a dream state) a 19th Century man who says he fought and defeated the aliens.

    The episodes that were unaired by CBS also included several plot elements that would have likely been explored had the series continued, such as Dr. Sloan, the so-called "Vigilante" introduced in the episode of the same name, whose self-appointed mission is to kill infectees (the episode also indicates a romantic attraction between him and Caffrey); the real nature of the gamma ray burst headed for Earth indicated in "The Crossing"; the effect of Threshold on Lucas Peggs' marriage; Cavanaugh's search for his brother (who becomes infected in one of the unaired episodes and provides the aliens with information about Threshold); the development of an alien infectee culture (who refer to themselves as "improved" humans) and their perception that the US government is persecuting them (an element introduced in the final episode, "Alienville"); and the aftermath of Caffrey's orders to increase Threshold's powers in "Outbreak".

    Wow! Does it mention where and how those aliens send those probes through since the probes are multi-dimensional in nature are the aliens from another dimension or is it just how they make their spaceships ... oh god i sound like a freaking geek >.> but I'm to damn curious not to ask lol
