Synopsis by Hal Erickson
For well over a century, North America has been controlled by a technological corporation known as the Company. The Pequod, an interplanetary vehicle owned by the company, is in its tenth year of a deep-space reclamation project. Awakened from hypersleep, the crew of the Pequod comes across a derelict space pod, containing the body of Virgil Nygard, a militia leader supposedly executed years earlier for mass murder. It turns out, however, that Nygard is alive -- and he hopes to enlist the crew in his efforts to restore freedom to the earth. The question: Is Nygard a liar and a homicidal maniac, or is the Company somewhat less benign than it claims to be? "Abaddon" first aired on July 7, 2000.
