A brilliant sci-fi series which, sadly, lost in the competition with Babylon 5 only after one season. Set ca. 100 years in the future, Earth has finally managed to colonize planets light years away. Then, from out of nowhere, aliens attack. The "chigs" are merciless, slaughtering hundreds of colonists. We follow Squadron 58, the "wildcards", in their fight against the enemy. The plot is truly good, with sort of a non-linear history. Brilliant acting, and person gallery.
