A retelling of Michael Crichton’s best-selling novel, Andromeda Strain follows the deadly path of an alien microorganism that hitches a ride to earth on a US government satellite, which crashes near a small town. The extraterrestrial bug mutates into an airborne virus that inflicts instant, gruesome deaths, and turns the rare survivors into insane, violent and suicidal zombies.
A team of five scientists is sent in to study the virus, dubbed Andromeda. When the President of the United States orders a tactical strike that will blow the town to bits, taking Andromeda with it, the scientists realise that the blast will only make the virus grow at an exponential rate—and they must stop the virus before bio-terror seizes the land.
Andromeda Strain stars Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality, Law & Order) as team leader Dr. Jeremy Stone; Christa Miller (Cougar Town, Scrubs) as Dr. Angela Noyce; Louis Ferreira (SGU Stargate Universe) as Colonel James Ferrus; Ricky Schroder (24, NYPD Blue) as Major Bill Keane, MDl; Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) and Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii Five-0).
