Andromeda (Syndicated 2000-2005, Kevin Sorbo, Lexa Doig)

From Gene Roddenberry, the mind behind Star Trek, comes Andromeda, where the starship Andromeda Ascendant, piloted by Dylan Hunt (Kevin Sorbo from Hercules), roams the galaxies of the Systems Commonwealth.

When the Nietzschean race betrays the Commonwealth, Hunt orders his crew to abandon ship and selflessly directs it into a black hole.

The salvage ship Eureka Maru pulls Andromeda and Hunt out hundreds of years later and he discovers he has to restore order in a chaotic universe with a crew comprising salvage hunters, a mercenary and a monk. The series, filmed in Vancouver, Canada, ended in 2005 after five seasons.

Memorable moment: During the episode The Banks of the Lethe, Hunt sends a message into a black hole that the Andromeda crew are surveying. Miraculously, the message is received by a woman he left behind 300 years earlier. Hunt then travels back in time to be reunited. But can he bring his fiancee back with him in the future?

Trivia: The idea for Andromeda came from the late Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry but it was brought to TV by his widow Majel. Gene died in 1991 and some of his ashes were sent into space in a capsule.

Actresses Lexa Doig and Lisa Ryder filmed the movie Jason X before embarking on their new TV adventure aboard Andromeda. However, Lexa is human in the film and Lisa a robot – unlike in the TV series where the opposite is the case.
