- Sorbo Talks Season Two
The actor behind Captain Dylan hunt talked to Starburst Magazine about some new enemies to appear in the new season. "We're going to introduce a brand new enemy," he said. "A nasty new crop of villains called the Pyrians. Their name is sort of taken from 'pyro' as they are very fiery looking creatures - a computer generated species. Their introduction kind of ties in with Trance's story because she's being bothered - not by these Pyrians - but by other people who don't like her kind," Sorbo said. "We're dealing with a little racism and issues like that."
