Captain Dylan Hunt and the crew of the Andromeda Ascendant set out on a mission to rebuild the Systems Commonwealth 300 years after its fall.
The series combines elements of hard science fiction and drama, while dealing with social and political issues such as drug abuse, death, bribery, and intergalactic politics.
When Dylan can not move the Arkology, he chooses a stand off which he cannot win. Things go badly: Rhade is surrounded, Rommie is destroyed, Harper is found by a Magog and Beka is presumed killed, while Arkology is destroyed and Andromeda is invaded by Magog and severely damaged with the only survivors being Trance and Dylan. Dylan tries to destroy the Worldship by firing every Nova Bomb Andromeda has at it, but does little damage. Andromeda repels the Magog by venting her atmosphere and Trance convinces Dylan to abandon ship in a Slipfighter for the Route of Ages while she deals with the Worldship. As Dylan heads into the Route of Ages, Trance pilots Andromeda into the centre of the Worldship, firing every missile the ship has as she goes to clear the way, saying her goodbyes. As Andromeda loses power, the ship enters the centre of the Worldship and Trance goes supernova apparently destroying the Worldship. Dylan enters the Route of Ages where he encounters another version of himself. The two Dylans stare at each other for a moment before the other one walks away.
