There were plenty of interesting sci-fi touches to the action, including the introduction of clone soldiers that brought up some deep questions about the nature of humanity.

What [James] Wong and [Chris] Morgan have failed to do is develop those characters into relatable human beings, instead of cartoon characters.

Space: Above and Beyond doesn't seem to know whether it wants to be a mind-numbing video game or a heavy-handed allegory for contemporary social issues.

The visual components of the show-particularly the armament and the battle scenes-are sleek enough to excite younger viewers. But the plots and characters in Space are as thin as the air up there, and might leave adults floating out in the cold.
