An extraterrestrial race arrives on Earth with seemingly good intentions, only to slowly reveal their true machinations the more ingrained into society they become.
Comparisons have been drawn between this series (a reimagining of V (1983), V: The Final Battle (1984), V (1984)) and Battlestar Galactica (2004), another gritty reimagining of a "classic" sci-fi TV series. In the US, the original Battlestar Galactica (1978) aired on ABC, but the new version aired on Sci-Fi (an NBC-owned channel); the original V aired on NBC, but the new version is on ABC. Parallels between the new series even extends to the cast: Rekha Sharma and Michael Trucco are Galactica stars who have appeared in minor roles in "V".
