"We thought we were alone. We believed the universe was ours. Until one night in 2063, on a Earth colony 16 light-years away, they struck. Now we're at war. We fight when called, in space, on land, and at sea. To lose this war means more than defeat; to surrender is to never go home. All of us must rise to the call... above and beyond."

Space: Above and Beyond ran on FOX from 1995 to 1996 but failed to be renewed after the first season for reasons nobody can quite fathom. The show received decent (if not exactly high) ratings, was nominated for several major awards and won the Sci-Fi Universe Magazine awards for Best Actress, Best Direction and Best Writing.

S:AAB centered around a unit of young Marine space pilots aboard the carrier Saratoga, fighting in a desperate war against an implacable alien foe.
