This was the pinacle of Sci-Fi drama. For once, a show dared to pull in the audience with deep, thought provoking content instead of fancy action sequences and special effects alone. Every episode continues to build upon subtle clues that present themselves through out the entirety of the first few seasons. Unfortunately, the last season shifts gears, centering on a war waged primarily by a prominent female lead character. Although interesting and action filled enough, the proverbial veil that is necessary for any good mystery story has been lifted at this point, and the only question left is whether or not the human race will win out or not. I suppose the greatest part of the show is it's making us honestly ask ourselves several questions: Are we better off left alone in the universe? Why would an advanced alien race want anything to do with us? Who are our greatest heroes? Is our greatest enemy one that has yet to reveal itself, or is it one we've always embraced, the flaws and ugliness of our own humanity? Although EFC shares the same creator as Star Trek, EFC is much more identifiable because the setting is not in the distant future, but the here and now. The sense of urgency is unparralleled, and the weapons are cooler. I'd take a Skrill (mini nuke powered my intensity) over a battery powered Phaser any day.
