    • Series Overview

      The world of Star Quest brings us back to the end of the Cold War and the chaos of a new millennium. When the discovery of extraterrestrial life creates a fear-driven desire to destroy the very thing that may ensure mankind’s future. It begins when scientists uncover an alien site and an infant not from this world.

      Caught between the forces determined to save the planet from an alien invasion and her alien brethren, a woman will become a bridge between two worlds…

      DARIA (21) with a balding head and hunger for sunlight has always felt alienated. In reality, she’s an alien, found as an infant by a secret enclave of scientists.
      When Daria discovers her life is a lie, she follows a 20-year-old trail of deceit and betrayal, unaware that her journey will attract dark forces on two worlds that seek to capture, control and even kill her.

      Her “mother,” VALERIE, is determined to stop her. Embittered by a life as an immigrant outcast, she will lie, cheat and even murder rather than be exposed as a traitor.

      This battle leaves sister CLARA caught between two women she loves. Her dilemma is in deciding where her loyalty lies, and dealing with her own betrayals when caught in the crossfire.

      Meanwhile, Daria is hunted by IAN, the scientist who found her and wants her back, believing that she poses a threat to the human race...and he’s right. But he’s not the only one.

      DR. WANG, Daria’s psychiatrist, is connected to a secret organization with their own plans for Daria. In addition, an uncle she’s never known on a distant planet has his own nefarious agenda.

      Daria is accompanied by a former policeman, SEAN who is secretly connected to a scientist who found Daria. Seeking his own truths, they become fugitives, lovers and the key to humanity’s future.

      Daria’s quest is played out over five seasons. Season One ends with a showdown with Clara and Valerie as Daria comes to terms with the fact that she’s an alien and sets off with Sean on a quest to discover her origins when they discover the location of the lab where it all began.

      Season Two focuses on Sean and Daria as they stay one step ahead of Ian while unearthing the secrets of her past. By the end of the season, Daria discovers how she got to earth and returns to her home planet on the AI ship, DAIKI.

      In Season Three, Daria arrives on her home-world and struggles to assimilate, hone her powers and accept her place as heir to the throne. Meanwhile, her uncle schemes against her and Earth.

      Season four begins as Daria discovers her uncle’s deceit and joins forces with the underground resistance. She returns to Earth to make peace with an old enemy, Ian.

      Season Five opens as Daria’s loyalties between her own and adopted people will be challenged by returning to Earth to raise a bi-planetary army. Her choices will decide the fate of both planets.
