Did You Know?


During Andromeda's battle with the Nietzschean fleet, Harper says he will fire on any enemy ship that gets within 80 light seconds of his Rommy. For a sense of scale, 80 light seconds is ~15 million miles or 60 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon. See more »

The final confrontation with the Abyss
19 September 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

As season five, and the whole series, comes to an end Andromeda and her crew must face one of its greatest battles to date. Earth has been destroyed and the Nietzschean fleet is amassing around Terazed... vastly outnumbered Dylan must choose whether to fight against the odds or accept Maura's offer and return to the Seefra system; and thus condemn the three galaxies to destruction. Not surprisingly they fight. The Nietzscheans aren't the only problem though; it is apparent that they are being guided by The Abyss and ultimately that threat will have to be faced.

Not surprisingly the series finale provides lots of action as well as serving to wrap up most outstanding plot threads. The battle against the Nietzscheans is impressive with Andromeda shooting at thousands of enemy ships. We then get a nice twist involving The Abyss before the final confrontation. This takes us almost to the end of the episode after which we get a few nice conversations between the crew as they prepare for less chaotic lives. Inevitably as it ends there is a touch of poignancy as it feels as though we are bidding farewell to old friends.
