There was this series I watched in the early 90s, about a group of soldiers fighting against some androids (or aliens, can't remember). The enemies definitely looked like androids, but I can't recall if they were robots from Earth or aliens.

The only enemy unit I can remember had wings, with birdy head. There were also terrestrial units.

The enemy's weapons shot lasers. I first thought people were being disintegrated, but later found out they were actually teleported to the enemy's HQ.

I can't remember much more, just that it was on Earth, where all the cities were basically reduced debris and fights would happen through the remains.

  • Did the robots travel through time?

    Animated or live-action?

  • “wings, with birdy head” Hm. Aug 5 '15 at 15:03

Might this be yet another dim memory of Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future (1987-88)?

One of the “Bio-Dreads” (monstrous creations that hunt down human survivors of the war between men and machines) on the show was a sort of metal pterodactyl thing called Soaron, and was portrayed using CGI.

The fearsome (sort of) Soaron

Wings: check. Birdy head: check. All the cities were basically reduced to debris: check.

    @algiogia: well, they certainly weren’t bad enough for everyone to turn off and forget the show ever happened. Aug 5 '15 at 15:17

Wondering if this could be Cleopatra 2525?

  • Wow, I thought I'd hallucinated that show.

    @algiogia Yeah, because Captain Power was SO much better ;)

  • I remember (but I could be wrong) the plot wasn't that bad. But Cleopatra... a stripper who get hibernated after breast surgery... Futurama is more realistic :)

    I think that if it had been Cleopatra 2525 the OP would have remembered the underwear. ;-) Jennifer Sky (Cleo) once complained that she was being typecast as "a stripper or a slut". Even better: her IMDb profile picture is the cover of the Maxim with that interview.
