In the middle of the ocean, a cargo freighter makes a chilling discovery: an extraterrstrial craft has landed on Earth. Enter Dr. Molly Anne Caffrey (Carla Gugino), a government contingency analyst recruited to await the planet's first contact, along with a carefully assembled team made up of a brilliant physicist with strong religious beliefs, a language and communications expert and a highly trained covert operative. Together they implement the long-gestating Operation Threshold, charged with finding out the purpose of the landing and the fate of the ship's crew, and preparing for the worst-case scenario of an alien invasion.
Produced by the team of David Heyman, Brannon Braga and David Goyer.
Co-creator Goyer on the uniqueness of the show, "It's sort of nominally about an alien invasion, but it's so different from those kinds of shows that once it comes on the air, people will realize how different it is. I can guarantee you that no one has ever seen alien invasion stories like this before."
"It's very scary ... It asks a lot of really provocative questions, and it doesn't let the audience off easy. I think people will be surprised by the way that aliens are sort of a MacGuffin, a way to hold a mirror up against society ... I'm being a little vague, but I have to be ... because there's been a little bit of a misdirect in terms of what little bit has been let out about the show."
