Aimed largely at young (specifically male) viewers, Alpha Scorpio followed the sudden realisation of two university students, enjoying a quiet coastal holiday, that their friend Mirny is one of a group of aliens from the fifth planet of Antares who have recently landed on Earth.
Alpha Scorpio has never been released on either video or DVD, and it is possible that nothing but the first episode remains in the ABC archives. However, the first episode is available to view on YouTube, beginning with part one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq7QOln0fro (Sighted 16/2/2011)
The program is a sole-author work: James Davern scripted all six episodes.
