In V, the thrilling drama series about the world's first alien encounter, which received an Emmy® Award nomination for Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series its first season, appearances can be deceiving. Simultaneously appearing over every major city in the world, the Visitors (or V's) offered the wonders of their technology and promoted peace. While the world quickly embraced the V's as saviours, FBI Counter Terrorist Agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) and others - making up the resistance group called the Fifth Column - quickly discovered that the Visitors were not who they said they were, and that their intentions on Earth are more devious and diabolical than anyone could imagine.
The Visitors are among us. In a single shared moment, they appear in every major city in the world, promoting a message of peace. They want to share their knowledge of technology; they want us to unite. And they are counting on a very important component of human nature: devotion. At first considered a threat, the Visitors - or V's - quickly become a fascination. But when FBI Counter Terrorist Agent Erica Evans discovers what lurks beneath the alarmingly human exterior of the V's, resisting this new world has never been more important - and never has there been more at stake. It truly is the dawning of a new day.
