Gene Roddenberry's "Earth: Final Conflict" | 1997
Apparently friendly aliens (called Taelons or "Companions") arrive on Earth and bring with them new technologies and cures for deadly diseases. A group of rebels, believing that the aliens actually intend to dominate the human race, attempts to defeat their plans. Intelligence Officer William Boone is caught between the two when he is recruited by the Taelons to become Commander of Security and Interspecies Relations and is then approached by the underground human resistance. Ultimately, Boone chooses to work secretly for the Resistance, while retaining his insider status within the Companion power structure. Tenuously caught between two worlds, Boone walks a tightrope as he tries to get to the truth, knowing that any question of his allegiance by either side will cost him his life. Set in an unnamed Midwestern city early in the next millennium.
