The underwear clad gentleman Mel Porter meets on the road that fateful afternoon, is not really a man. He's both more and very different. Cirron, his home world, revolves around a sun light years away and his true form is more a figure of light then flesh and blood. Why and how he came here is a mystery, one that will have Mel digging through old family records and learning why her grandmother's bar is called "The Watchfire". Tracker is a job description and a calling for Daggon. In the worlds of the Migar Alliance, those who outlaw themselves are clever, strong and have abilities far beyond those of the usual Terran criminals. Unfortunately for us, when 218 aliens are sent through an experimental wormhole by a scientist with a scheme of his own, Daggon has his work cut out for him. He'll be up against the essence of the worst wearing the bodies of humans who had nothing to do with Zin's ultimate plan. Mel Porter is a restless woman who is trying to find answers to her own questions. ...Written by
Rather blah if otherwise well-made sci-fi vehicle for "Highlander" star Adrian Paul. He's in control here, and this series was seemingly constructed around his personal charm, but to this point he's evidently shooting for subtlety. The performances aren't really bad, but bland; if the cast is holding back some "oomph" to be revealed later, one can only hope the show isn't cancelled before they get the chance. The action and suspense are low-key as well. And leaving aside the set-up and a couple of gadgets, there's very little in the way of science fiction present. I can't really say I dislike the show, but the producers had better hope it's not scheduled against very strong competition (it comes on at 2AM Sunday here).
