Pandora is a new Sci-Fi series that premiered on The CW last night. It follows a young seemingly human woman, who joins the Earth Confederacy's Space Academy following the death of her parents. Along the way she butts heads with a teacher, finds a groups of friends that includes a member of an alien race Earth was just at war with, a freed clone slave, a telepath, and a regular human played by former The Librarians cast member John Harlan Kim. The end of the episode reveals that there appears to be some kind of conspiracy around her parents death involving alien creatures, that she is somehow related to the alien creatures, and that her alien friend knows about all of this and is actually spying for his father. I thought it was pretty good, some of the dialogue was a bit cheesy, but I liked the characters overall, and the story is interesting. A lot of the cheesier dialogue was kind of awkward info dumps when the characters and ideas were being introduced, so I'm thinking now that all of that is out of the way, it might get better. I actually thought it almost had a tiny bit of the kind of vibe I would have expected from a Star Trek: Starfleet Academy show.
