Earth: Final Conflict is a science fiction television series posthumously "created" by Gene Roddenberry. Early in the 21st century a species of aliens called the Taelons come to Earth. They offer their advanced technologies to the people of Earth and request shelter on Earth. With the new technologies disease is almost wiped out, as is pollution and war. Despite all these advances, there are some people who think the Taelons are not as benevolent as they seem. A resistance movement is organised, and as the show progresses the viewer understands that the fears of the resistance fighters may be correct.
The show is unusual in that ultimately the Taelon aliens are not all-out evil (except for one character who eventually becomes the main villain in season 2 to season 4), nor are they actually trying to "conquer" the world, however they do have a hidden agenda and have no problem violating basic individual civil liberties to reach their goals.
The show's pilot episode aired on 18 October 1997, and ran for 5 seasons before finally ending with a series finale. The 5th season of the show was a radical depature storywise, with a smaller main cast and with the Taelons replaced by a new and more openly hostile alien race, a group of energy vampires called the Atavus.
The show is infamous for the unusually high turnover rate among the main cast, partially due to contractual disagreements between the cast and the producers. Almost all major characters were killed or otherwised removed within a season or two of being introduced (including Boone, who appeared to be the main character in the show's first season). In fact, the only character to appear as a series regular in all 5 seasons of the show was FBI Agent Sandoval, the show's main antagonist.
The show originally starred Majel Barrett, the wife of Gene Roddenberry, as the character Dr. Julianne Belman. Barrett is in possession of notes Roddenberry kept of story and series ideas; after his death, these notes provided the basis for this series. Another posthumous creation of Roddenberry's is Andromeda.
