1. "Dark Skies"


Short-lived blatant copycat of the "X-Files". I mean, just look at the cover of that VHS tape that is on the IMDB page!

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115151/?ref_=fn_al_tt_3



2. "Tek War"

Never read any of Shatner's books which this series was based on.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108953/?ref_=fn_tt_tt_1



3. "Beyond Westworld"


Before HBO's fancy highly intellectually sophisticated version, there was a campy late 70's version!

I think I watched Dark Skies,I've heard of Tek War (wasn't there a game based on this?) but never heard of the last one.

I saw some of Tek War, not much, but I do remember seeing it on TV. I haven't heard of the other two.

Another series that was kind of under the radar was Earth: Final Conflict

Interesting. The show actually lasted for 110 episodes and I don't recognize any of the actors among the main cast. I recognize several guest/supporting actors though like Majel Barrett.

It was based on a Gene Roddenberry concept, and I think Majel Barrett was the producer or something, having been married to him.

The original star was Kevin Kilner, and they replaced him halfway through, although I don't know if he left or was fired. He's not a household name, but he's been in a number of things so he seems to have no problem getting work.

You made me curious so I looked it up.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042156/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0


I noticed the guy who played the USMC drill instructor in "Gomer Pyle" was in it! He's the only one I recognized by name in the cast list.
