Political aide John Loengard has a run-in with extraterrestrial forces, and ends up tracking a body-snatching alien invasion as part of the super-secret agency Majestic 12. This series was launched at the height of the paranormal mania created by ''Series/TheXFiles''. Notable for its 1960s setting and a pre-''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' role for Jeri Ryan as a Russian sexpot agent. [[ShortRunners Cancelled after one season]].
Not to be confused with the 2013 horror film of the same name, though both are about aliens.
!!This series provides examples of:
* AllTheoriesAreTrue: Especially [=UFOlogy=] and other '60s ConspiracyTheory lore.
%%* BadBoss: Bach, very much so.
* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: The events of the show are shown to be interconnected with historical events.
** The most extreme example is in the final episode "Bloodlines", in which the Hive infested Jim Steele murders a hippie and assumes his identity: [[spoiler:Charles Manson]]
%%* CliffHanger: The series-ending kind.
* ETGaveUsWiFi: The show, and the conspiracy folklore it's based on, supposes that modern technology was invented by reverse-engineering material from the famous Roswell incident.
* FakeGuestStar: Conor O'Farrell (Lt. Commander Phil Albano) appears in 18 of the series' 20 episodes, missing only "Dreamland" and "The Last Wave", but remains a guest star throughout the series. In fact, he is generally quite low in the guest list.
%%* GovernmentConspiracy: Majestic in the US and Aura-Z in the Soviet Union.
* TheGreys: a (presumably) peaceful race that was taken over by the parasitic Hive. They and their technology are used by the Hive to menace Earth.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Many, many, from Music/TheBeatles and [[Music/TheDoors Jim Morrison]], to Carl Sagan and Colin Powell.
%%* HiveMind: The appropriately named "Hive" aliens have this.
* RealEventFictionalCause: Several episodes purport that various events of TheSixties were a result of the alien conspiracy. For example, the accidental activation of an alien device is blamed for the 1964 earthquake in Homer, Alaska.
* RoswellThatEndsWell: They landed. They met with the President. They told him to surrender. He refused. They shot the ship down.
%%* WhoShotJFK: The Hive.
%%* TheVirus: The Hive acts like this.
