Roddenberry originally entitled his idea Battleground: Earth or Gene Roddenberry's Earth. He created some brief documents in the 1970s outlining the types of stories and ideas he wanted the show to explore. Where Star Trek attempted to show a distant future for Humanity that was bright and promising, this series would show an Humanity and an Earth much closer to the one we know; A near future where technology is not always trustworthy and an alien species holds us hostage on our own planet.
In 1997, Majel Barrett and David Kirschner formed Roddenberry/Kirschner Productions and began to produce the series in Toronto, Canada. The series relied mostly on Canadian acting talent with the exception of American actor, Kevin Kilner who was cast in the lead role of William Boone.
When Kilner decided not to return to the series at the end of Season One, the producers cast another American to lead the series. Robert Leeshock would play Liam Kincaid in seasons two through four. In Season Five the reigns were taken over by Canadian actor, Jayne Heitmeyer as Renee Palmer, a character she had originated in Season Three.
The premise of the series is an Earth in the not too distant future, three years after the arrival of an alien species known as the Taelons. The Taelons bring with them incredible technology that they share openly with Humanity. However, a growing number of Humans believe that the Taelons are not the "Companions" to Earth that they claim to be.
Over the course of the series, various Taelon plots involving experimentation on Humans, are revealed. It turns out the Taelons are a dying race and they have been fighting a centuries-long war with a related species called the Jaridians. They have come to Earth in hopes that some kind of fusion of themselves with Humans will allow them to survive, but also with few qualms about using Humans in their fight against the Jaridians.
