Humanity must resume its war against the Martians when they revive after decades of hibernation following their defeat in the 1950s.
Originally, Paramount had conceived the series not as a sequel or for television, but a feature remake of The War of the Worlds (1953) with George A. Romero slated to direct.
We've got to stop hurting the aliens!
Ironhorse: Hurting the aliens? I don't remember invading their planet!
In one episode, an actor dressed as an alien jumps down from an air duct onto a human. As he jumps, you can see his socks.
Sylvia Van Buren is credited for writing the episode "Epiphany". Two other scripts ("The Walls of Jericho" and "The Good Samaritan") are pen-named under amalgams of her name and that of Clayton Forrester. This was because thee was a writers' strike going on at the time and the writers did not want to be credited.
The animation of the alien hand taking a hold of Earth that opens every episode in the first season is omitted on the DVDs.
