Earth: Final Conflict

Earth: Final Conflict


The Author of this post is Rolando Dickerson


Earth: Final Conflict is a series I used to follow as a teen in the late 1990s to early 2000s. I was pleasantly surprised last month to find it in syndication on satellite TV, that I got after seeing that you can expertsatellite.com. It was a well regarded series created by Gene Roddenberry of Star Trek fame that unfortunately did not have the following to continue past it's fifth season. I definitely want to encourage people to check out the series while it's still being aired in syndication. The series is known for its high turnover rate, but some of the actors that managed to find a way to stick around are Robert Leeshock as Liam Kincaid, Lisa Howard as Lili Marquette, Richard Chevolleau as Marcus Deveraux, Von Flores as Ronald Sandoval, Anita La Selva as Zo'or and Leni Parker as Da'an. I believe Flores and La Selva are the only two actors to make it through all five seasons; though Zo'or has a very minimal role in seasons 1 and 5.


The story is set in the early 21st century just after a race of aliens known as the Taelons arrive upon the planet Earth. The Taelons claim to be seeking refuge and offer their advanced technology as thanks. The technological advances eliminate many of the problems facing society such as disease and pollution; however, not everyone trusts the aliens and resistance movements surface.
