Series Synopsis

EMIT (M-8), the last of twelve soldiers sent to Earth to fight on behalf of the Barannue race. He must discover the whereabouts of his opponents, 12 soldiers of the Eripidii civilisation, and dispatch them. Only he isn’t doing that well as he’s the only one left of his team.

 

He eventually, and reluctantly, seeks the help of Kate, a Cal (the name they’ve given the local humans), when he is badly injured and has to escape the area. She begins to believe his story and helps. But Kate has a past that she is running from. 

Through a mistake, Emit leaves the body of a soldier he just dispatched when he runs with Kate. the police are called in and DI Mace Fionnlagh investigates. He finds several other killings of unknown persons in the past few years that are connected. The connection is that the DNA of each victims match. Exactly. It looks like the victims were one person being killed over and over again. Three days after the the bodies had been put into the police morgue they have disappeared without a trace. As Fionnlagh investigates deeper he touches a nerve and is taken off the case and suspended by order of a Special Branch office named SO6. Fionnlagh isn't pleased and begins his own investigation.

Both Fionnlagh and Emit collide as they uncover a plot which will bring both civilisations at either ends of the galaxy to a climactic realisation and maybe answer the age old question that Humans have asked since the beginning of time: Why are we here?

Underpinning both investigations are Matt and Blanche. These are the Watchers. Those that are making sure that both sides are sticking to the rules. But, what are their true motives? And who watches the Watchers?
