Brannon Braga Quotes



[Threshold is premiering amid a glut of new SF shows on the fall television schedule. But Braga believes that NBC's Surface and ABC's Invasion are very different shows. Threshold deals with a group of people who work for the government who are trying to stop the aliens.] In a funny way, a lot of shows deal with government conspiracy, and there are the people in the shadows who you don't quite know what they're up to, ... We are the conspiracy. We're leading the conspiracy. And they are going to do some shady things. The Threshold protocols are going to occasionally call for some gray areas to be explored.

If you have the mythology clear in your mind from the get-go, and you've laid it out and you have a sense of where you're going, you're in good shape. If you're making it up as you go along, I think that's when you get into trouble. We need to be mindful about having big, surprising payoffs that feel intrinsic to the premise. We've endeavored to depict this alien visitation in a different way. It's not going to be the traditional 'ship lands, [aliens] come out' kind of stuff.

It's worth noting that the weekly stakes of the show will be out in the real world, involving everyday people like all of us. And [wherever] the team is going, ... whether it's Miami or Ohio or Indiana or Baltimore, they're going to be going out to investigate strange occurrences, all related to what the aliens are doing, and trying to put out fires, save the people who are in danger and try to figure out what the hell they're doing and how they're doing it.
