The Earth explodes before Harper makes his visit, the Andromeda manages to save Harper from destruction and runs from a Nietzschean attack fleet coming from the ruins of the planet. Analyzing fragments of the destroyed planet, Romy finds radical isotopes, proof that the Abyss aided the Nietzscheans in the destruction of Earth. Dylan consoles Harper for his loss, then prepares for the battle against the joined Nietzschean fleet, comprised of the Drago-Kazov, Mandau, and Sabra-Jaguar fleets.Written by
Doyle mentions a reoccurring dream she used to have. The archaically poetic description of her dream is a very close paraphrase of the 17th century ballad "A Fair Maid All in Her Garden". That song, in turn, was a retelling of Odysseus' reunion with his wife, Penelope, after his 20 year long return home from fallen Troy. See more »
As season five, and the whole series, comes to an end Andromeda and her crew must face one of its greatest battles to date. Earth has been destroyed and the Nietzschean fleet is amassing around Terazed... vastly outnumbered Dylan must choose whether to fight against the odds or accept Maura's offer and return to the Seefra system; and thus condemn the three galaxies to destruction. Not surprisingly they fight. The Nietzscheans aren't the only problem though; it is apparent that they are being guided by The Abyss and ultimately that threat will have to be faced.
Not surprisingly the series finale provides lots of action as well as serving to wrap up most outstanding plot threads. The battle against the Nietzscheans is impressive with Andromeda shooting at thousands of enemy ships. We then get a nice twist involving The Abyss before the final confrontation. This takes us almost to the end of the episode after which we get a few nice conversations between the crew as they prepare for less chaotic lives. Inevitably as it ends there is a touch of poignancy as it feels as though we are bidding farewell to old friends.
