Terra Nova is a science fiction television series that premiered on the Fox network in 2011. The show is set in the year 2149, in a future where the Earth is dying due to pollution and overpopulation. The show follows the story of the Shannon family, who are selected to travel back in time to prehistoric Earth as part of a program called Terra Nova, in order to start a new colony and save humanity.

The lead character of the show is Jim Shannon, played by Jason O'Mara, who is a former police officer and convicted felon. He is joined by his wife, Elisabeth Shannon, played by Shelley Conn, who is a brilliant doctor and former Terra Nova scientist. Together they have three children, Josh, Maddy and Zoe, played by Landon Liboiron, Allison Miller, and Naomi Scott respectively. Christine Adam also stars in the show as Mira, a ruthless leader of a group of rebels who have traveled back in time with her to stop the Terra Nova program.

The journey back in time is not easy, as the travelers are dropped into a world full of prehistoric creatures and unknown dangers. The Shannons and the other Terra Novans must work together to create a new community and protect themselves from the native creatures, as well as the rebels who are attempting to sabotage their efforts.

Stephen Lang plays the role of Commander Nathaniel Taylor, the charismatic and tough leader of Terra Nova. He is a respected military man who has led the colony for many years and has a deep connection with the land and its inhabitants.

Throughout the series, the Shannon family and other characters must confront a variety of challenges, both external and internal. They must navigate the dangers of the prehistoric world, the politics and power struggles within Terra Nova, and the struggles of family life in a new and unpredictable environment.

The show is visually stunning, with lush jungle landscapes and incredible creature designs. The special effects are top-notch, bringing the prehistoric world to life in a realistic and immersive way. The show also features complex and intriguing characters, with each member of the Shannon family and the other Terra Novans having their own unique motivations and struggles.

While the show only aired for one season, it has gained a dedicated fan base and is still discussed and enjoyed by science fiction fans today. The show captured the imagination of viewers with its blend of time travel, action, adventure, and family drama. It stands as a testament to the power of science fiction to take us to new worlds and explore the limits of what is possible.
