I'm attempting to find a TV show or a movie. I want to say it's over 10 years old, but I'm not sure. Here are the fragments I remember:

  1. Outer space setting, a medium sized to smaller group of people are sent to resupply/reinforce a forward outpost on a planet or moon.

  2. After three to six months, maybe a year, they land (possibly crash) and they find the planet is inhospitable, that there's no sign of their forward Advance Team.

  3. They receive no distress signals. Their initial scans showed no inhabitants on the planet, but now there's signs of an advanced dead civilization. I seem to remember a family connection to the second team where the parents are siblings of someone on the first team.

  4. I believe the second team also had a sick girl with breathing problems. It could have been a boy, but I believe it was a girl.

  5. After some searching they find remnants of the first team's landing in some type of outpost, but it has been abandoned for centuries, millennia even.

  6. I want to see the TV series because I seem to remember it coming in chunks and it recapping things. There also seem to be some hostile entity machines, people or aliens that they had to avoid I think.

  7. I do remember that later they find out that there was some temporal slip such that they showed up thousands of years late. That's why they can't find the first team. The advanced civilization that was wiped out was the first team.

  8. I believe that there was a surface city and a underground city.

  9. I know it's not any of the Terminator series and I know it's not the TV show Earth 2.

  • Hi Jason! In what country did you watch this show? And you give us the number of 10 years, would you say that 2011 or 2006 would be closer to the time you saw this in? I can vaguely remember a similar plot, but I need to refine my memories. And, was this program in English? Can you specifically remember the name of a planet or space ship - or any other exact detail that might help? Even specific details about their starship. – PhasedOut Oct 24 '16 at 15:03
  • Your description is strongly reminiscent of the Stargate Universe episodes "Common Descent" and "Epilogue". Link with plot summary: IMDB – Dosco Jones Oct 24 '16 at 19:32

Your sounds like the series Earth 2. its is an older series and has a group of people landing on the new earth and the advanced team are missing and there is a alien life they didnt expect and one character was a boy who was sickly and I think his parents were part of the first team or somethign. its been years so not sure on any of this, but reading your question did make me think of Earth 2. But if you are certain it is not that it also makes me think of an episode of Stargate Atlantis can't remember the name but they use the city to get more drones for atlantis in the end Edit After posting and rereading your question the show Tera Nova came to mind. it is not that old and they did a time jump to go back to a point in earths history where the air was more breathable and I think the little had a problem with brearthing before being sent but was also why they were caught cuz of trying to hide her or something

Your description is strongly reminiscent of the Stargate Universe episodes "Common Descent" and "Epilogue".

Link with plot summary: IMDb

The Destiny once again comes under attack from the drones they previously encountered leading them to wonder just how the drones and their mother ship manage to find them so soon after virtually every jump. More intriguing to everyone however are the people they find on a planet who claim to be the descendants of the Destiny's crew who founded their civilization nearly 2000 years ago. They are only a small party from their home world but have been unable to return there. Eli surmises that the alternate Destiny that they believed was destroyed by falling into the sun may in fact have been thrown even further back in time, leading them to be the founder of the new civilization. After the Drones again find them and the descendants camp is destroyed, they are all taken aboard the Destiny for the return trip to their home world but they are disappointed with what they find when they arrive.

Could it be the Andromeda TV series? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andromeda_(TV_series)

  • Doesn't fit. Andromeda was set on a ship traveling through space, not about colonization – Machavity Oct 24 '16 at 14:15
