The Andromeda Ascendant is flying towards the end of its second season on the air, a season that has seen some major changes on the show.

Here's a round up of the latest news from the Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda Universe, courtesy of our sister site, SlipstreamWeb.

  • 'Andromeda' Needs A Higher Profile, Says Sorbo
    Kevin Sorbo (Dylan Hunt) said that the show's success was great, but more promotion from its creators could make a huge difference. Difficulties with scheduling relating from the show's status in syndication make it difficult for viewers to tune in.

  • 'Lava and Rockets' Review
    The first episode written after show developer Robert Hewitt Wolfe left the series is reviewed by Michelle Erica Green. "Dylan gets a valentine (not Beka) when mercenaries try to kill him," she summarised.

  • Bertram On Trance's New Look
    Laura Bertram spoke about her character's on-screen transformation. " "I was very nervous about the change because I obviously expected the worst," she said. "I've seen some of the fan response on the Internet, and it hasn't been very positive."

  • 'Dance Of The Mayflies' Promo Released
    The Andromeda crew have to contend with an invasion from a race that proves difficult to kill - because they're already dead. The promo for the episode is now available for download, along with a transcript at the above url.

  • Online Critics Disappointed With 'Ouroboros'
    The final episode written by Robert Hewitt Wolfe didn't go down well with reviewers. Jammer said that "[It] plays like bull-in-china-shop cinema (all too typical on this series, alas) to the point that many scenes don't even really seem necessary." The Cynic was only able to award the episode 6 out of 10.

  • Kevin Sorbo On Season Three
    Dylan Hunt actor says that he thinks the show needs more humour. "I think there's going to be more hand-to-hand stuff, the Jackie Chan style of fighting," he said. "It's not old yet for people. And we'll mix in the right amount of explosions to keep all the sci-fi geeks happy."

  • Weekly Ratings Sink To New Low
    Andromeda's viewership figures sank to record lows with the airing of 'Bunker Hill'. Ratings are down 33% from the same time last year. Mediaweek analysts called the drop "the biggest surprise of the first-run weekly hours."
