Unfrozen after 300 years, the captain of the most powerful ship in existence moves to rebuild his fallen Commonwealth with the help of a rag-tag group of civilians.

However, like too many series', Dark Angel suicide-bombs like it's been lit on fire and is heading for a volcano to end it's suffering. Not only is the second season bad enough to end the show, it's bad enough to not watch, even and especially for people who like the first.
