Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda
was a science fiction television series, created by Gene Roddenberry but produced posthumously. It starred Kevin Sorbo as High Guard Captain Dylan Hunt. The series premiered on October 2, 2000 and ended on May 13, 2005.

Hunt recruits the salvage crew to join him in an attempt to restore the Systems Commonwealth and ?rekindle the light of civilization.?
Season one of the series shows Hunt assembling the crew and adjusting to the new universe, while pursuing the creation of the Restored Systems Commonwealth; the second season shows the crew reacting to the sudden necessity of the Restored Systems Commonwealth after the discovery of the Magog Worldship, as they continue to make sure the dream comes true.
