On July 31, 1991, the final episode of "Alien Nation, "Green Eyes" aired, ending the series with a blockbuster finale and an exciting cliffhanger. In "Green Eyes" the Newcomers were faced with a deadly new bacteria created by a ruthless group of humans called Purists, who were determined to rid the Earth of the alien Tenctonese. As the story closed, all of the "Alien Nation characters were in crisis, and the Francisco family was infected with the bacteria, facing certain death. This story was never resolved...until now. "Dark Horizon" was a two-hour "Alien Nation script commissioned by Twentieth Century Fox. The story would have resolved the cliffhanger and kicked off "Alien Nation's second seacon. With the final cancellation of the series, the script was put away and fans were left with their questions unanswered. Pocket Books is now proud to present a novelization by critically acclaimed science fiction author K.W. Jeter, of the entire action-packed story that began with "Green Eyes" and ended with "Dark Horizon." As the story opens, George Francisco and Matthew Sikes stand watch over George's family, while the Earth faces a new threat. A ruthless Overseer has come from space to recover the Tenctonese slaves, and he will stop at nothing to see that the Newcomers-- as well as the entire human race-- are enslaved forever.

This book finally shows us the conclusion to the last episode of the TV series. Unfortunatly, the TV series left us hanging with it's last show. What happened to George's family after they inhaled the poison? That was the question left on the fans minds at the end of the series? Why was the show ended, and the last story never resolved? Although we may never know the true answer to the second question, we can now find out the answer to the first. This book gives us a detailed account of the last episode, AND the conclusion we all wanted. Even though we eventually saw the episode, and a few new movies, this book is in my opinion superior to the movie. If you can find a copy of this book, or any of the others, grab it! You will not be sorry.
This was one of the more interesting books, since I saw the movie before I knew the book existed. I felt that it was much better, things were detailed more and it really got into the characters. I think it even resolved the part in the cliffhanger episode with Buck and his teacher. I haven't read it in a while so I'm not positive. Anyway, it's definately worth buying.
The book does tie up the loose ends from the cliffhanger final episode. However, the ending of the book seems rushed and it isn't clear why it ended that way. I won't say more so as to avoid a spoiler. The book is enjoyable and very well written. I just feel the ending needed a couple of more chapters.
