- Aliens from a distant planet Sirius
IV who entered Earth's atmosphere in an armada of huge spacecrafts
that hovered over all the major cities of the world. on the
1983-84 miniseries "V" and on the subsequent sci-fi spin-off V & V: THE
Initially, Sirian representatives made contact with the
governments of the Earth and assured them the only purpose for their
arrival, was to share their advanced technological developments.
In exchange, the Earth would give the aliens a shipment of
minerals that were plentiful on our planet but lacking on theirs.
"We have come in peace, to all mankind. Our planet is the 4th
in distance from the star you call Sirius, some 8.7 light years
from Earth. This is the first time we have left our system, and
you the first intelligent life we've encountered. We're pleased
to meet you." -- John
Slowly, the Sirians unloaded personnel and arranged for the
transfer of materials. Using the Media to their advantage, the
aliens created a propaganda package that convinced the people of
Earth they had nothing to fear from their friends from the stars.
In reality, the aliens planned to use the population of Earth as a
food source for their home world, transporting the bodies in
freezer-units located on-board their spacecrafts. Another alien
deception was the Visitors' appearance. Beneath their humanoid
facades lurked the scaly faces and bodies of two-legged reptiles.
However, all good plans of mice and reptiles soon go awry. Their
master plan was uncovered by a crusading broadcast journalist,
Mike Donovan (Marc Singer) and a brilliant scientist, Dr. Juliet
Parrish (Faye Grant), who formed a unit of freedom fighters to
battle the alien occupational forces. Diana, (Jane Badler) the
ruthless leader of the aliens, reveled in the torture of her human
captives and in their eating. The hand-to-hand defense system used
by the Visitors was called "Revoc" taught by the blood-thirsty
mercenary, Klaus. It consisted of the deadly "silent strike"
Not all the aliens, however, agreed with their empire's
plans to slaughter the Earth's population. Many followed the
teachings of a renegade priest, Zon who taught against the tyranny
of the Visitors. His disciples chanted "Zon is the cause for which
I would die, but not for which I would kill."
A partial solution
to the alien occupation was the development of a red-powdered dust
chemical compound safe to the humans but deadly to the reptiles.
This "red dust" bacteria infiltrated the alien's gill tissues and
suffocated them. With this weapon, the freedom fighters slowly
began to win back the Earth from the alien domination.
Meanwhile, a female
earthling, Robin Maxwell (Blair Tefkin) had fallen in love with
one of the Sirian aliens, before she realized his true form or
intentions. Her interplanetary romance produced a hybrid child
with strange powers...powers that the alien empire wanted to
exploit. See also "V"

"The Visitors are not our
friends. They've come to rape our planet and kill us.
They're not who they appear to be."
