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.
The crew helps rebels on Seefra-5 who are battling a local warlord. In order to help them escape, Harper attempts to rebuild the quantum teleporter with assistance from his old friend Höhne, a Perseid scientist thought to have been dead for years. This ultimately causes power to go out all across the planets and is restored when Höhne sacrifices himself to shut down the teleporter. The lack of power allows the rebels, led by Rhade, to defeat the warlord who flees the planet, but after he targets Andromeda, Dylan destroys his ship. Harper mourns his friend’s death and discovers a message from him.
