At finally achieving his goal of fifty parties willing to join the New Commonwealth, Dylan hosts the signing of the New Commonwealth charter on board the Andromeda. With all the delegates aboard, he takes them to a barren system to avoid any interference from outside sources, but does not succeed. He finds that Andromeda now has other passengers on board, who can phase through walls and make themselves invisible. Worse yet, these intruders seem intent on killing everyone on board, starting with the delegates. Trance reveals that when this happened before only she and Beka survived, but Dylan refuses to let anyone else be killed.Written by

Well, that I wouldn't know, I've never fought a superior opponent.

It is two years since Captain Dylan Hunt set about trying to recreate the Systems Commonwealth now representatives of the first fifty members are aboard Andromeda to formally sign up. It soon becomes apparent that somebody else is aboard trying to sabotage the event. This individual is tracked down but just as he is about to be captured an unidentified alien materialises and drags the screaming man through a bulkhead. Soon various representatives are similarly taken so the remainder understandably want to leave. Trance warns that they must not leave... when this happened before they left and the 'bad future' she mentioned when Gold Trance replaced Purple Trance began. Soon ships start to materialise around Andromeda, attack then dematerialise before fire can be returned. More and more ships start to materialise and the situation looks desperate.
This episode brings season two to a thrilling conclusion. There is plenty of action, a mysterious threat and a cliff-hanger ending that leaves one wondering if some key characters didn't survive. The story starts well with some nice misdirection as viewers and crew alike suspect the obvious saboteur will be the main antagonist. The aliens are menacing and mysterious; there is a suggestion as to where they come from but no solid details about who they are or why they are attacking... we will obviously have to wait for season three to find out. I liked the fact that all of the main cast featured in the episode; in particular Trance as her warnings about a bad future appear to be coming true. The ending was exciting, as one might expect from a season finale... I'm glad I won't have to wait ages to discover what happens next.
