We thought we were alone. We believed the universe was ours. Until one night in 2063, on a Earth colony 16 light-years away, they struck. Now we're at war. We fight when called, in space, on land, and at sea. To lose this war means more than defeat; to surrender is to never go home. All of us must rise to the call... above and beyond.

Space: Above and Beyond is an American science fiction television series. It was created by Glen Morgan and James Wong and aired on the FOX Network for a single season from September 24th, 1995 to June 2nd, 1996, spanning a total of twenty-three episodes. The show is set in the near future time era of 2063 and 2064 and had a militaristic war film feel to it, as members of a space marine unit stationed aboard the carrier known as the USS Saratoga fought up against an aggressive alien race known as the Chigs. Although the series received fair to moderate ratings, it failed to impress the sponsors enough for it to be optioned for a second season.

Space: Above and Beyond featured an ensemble cast and starred Morgan Weisser as Lieutenant Nathan West, Kristen Cloke as Captain Shane Vansen, Rodney Rowland as Lieutenant Cooper Hawkes, Joel de la Fuente as Lieutenant Paul Wang, Lanei Chapman as Lieutenant Vanessa Damphouse, and James Morrison as Lieutenant Colonel T.C. McQueen.
