About this show
The long night has come. The Systems Commonwealth, the greatest civilization in history, has fallen. Now, one ship, one crew, have vowed to drive back the night and rekindle the light of civilization. On the starship Andromeda, hope lives again.
Never understood why this show got lost to history. It changed show runners
a couple of times and doesn't make a very cohesive series, but I'd put it
up against TNG or other Syfy favorites any day.

I love this show and this is the only season that I've bought through Google play movies because the app I was watching it on didn't work any more it was called movie play box plus. But anyway the show in it's self is great I liked all the other seasons too 👍

Awesome show. If you can get past the initial cheesiness. This show ends up being completely mindblowing.
