It takes AlwaysChaoticEvil, tells it it sucks, and then throws it through a portal into space. The alien species in the show seem even more divided than humans in their political goals and even more so in how to achieve them. The Taelons aren't outright evil at all, the Taelon characters are as diverse in how evil they are as the [[HumansAreBastards human ones]]. And it turns out to be a lot more complex as both species are intertwined into some [[DeusExMachina extremely vague]] purpose and need each other for survival. The second main character also was an [[HalfHumanHybrid alien hybrid]]. In a lot of ways, it was like ''Series/{{V}}'' only ''much'' more complex and with no clear good guy, bad guy or motivations.

* AbortedArc: More than one. For example, Maya's life in our reality, and Lili's half-Jaridian baby.

to:

* AbortedArc: More ''Everywhere.'' The show was infamous for coming up with intriguing ideas, but never really doing anything with them; the Skrills are cloned, then they have a queen which is set loose in the rain forest to reproduce freely before transforming into a glowing butterfly creature. The PortalNetwork acts as a means for Taelon shuttles to cross the globe in seconds, then becomes Niven-esque terminals and eventually ''portable'' to the point that a serial killer has a wearable one, despite having even ''more'' glitches than one. For example, Trek's transporters. Maya's life in our reality, and reality. Lili's half-Jaridian baby.baby. The list goes on.

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: An assassin whose preferred weapon is a telescopic baton with AbsurdCuttingPower, gets undone by his own weapon after Liam kicks him, causing the baton to extend through the assassin. Also, happens to [[spoiler:Sandoval]] in the GrandFinale after [[spoiler:Rene]] kicks him off a catwalk.

* AlternateReality: Liam and Augur end up on an alternate Earth where the Taelons are busy conquering humanity. Additionally, humans never built cities and remained in harmony with nature, which didn't stop them from building advanced weapons (it's not explained where they got the industry without cities). They find many duplicates of people they know, although some of them have different names (e.g. Alternate!Sandoval is called Jason).

* HalfHumanHybrid in Liam Kincaid [[spoiler: more properly Liam Sandoval-Beckett but no one calls him that, ever]]. He has [[ExtraParentConception three parents]], two human and one [[EnergyBeings Kimera]] and ends up with a kind of triple stranded DNA helix and a few special abilities. The entire manner of it is convoluted but the [[EnergyBeings Kimera]] race were extremely advanced and had a demonstrative skill in genetic manipulation.

to:

* HalfHumanHybrid GambitPileup: All the time in the first four seasons, since just about every Taelon seems to have their own (sometimes violently contradicting) agenda, and many of the humans have their own agendas and the skills and resources to pursue them. It's quite astonishing how thoroughly at cross purposes the Taelons can operate, given they have a form of shared consciousness and memory.

* {{Expy}}: The mothership's look is a dead ringer for the underwater aliens' technology in TheAbyss.

* TwistEnding - The show wasn't afraid to [[RetCon reveal]] that characters two seasons old had secretly been plotting against what they seemed the whole time. The actual finale, however, is a relatively straightforward fight to stop Howlyn from regaining control of his starship and the hibernating army it contains.

Added DiffLines:

*** At least on episode attempts to HandWave this. A human who has "evolved" past the Taelons makes an off-handed comment implying that what's happening isn't actually "evolution" in the sense humans understand it, but the English Language lacks appropriate terminology.
This list shows the last 10 events of 18. Show all.
