A desperate hit man -Ethaniel. A beautiful psychotherapist -Dr. Laura Keating. A headlong flight from authorities. All is not what it seems in CODE NAME: ETERNITY.
Ethaniel (Cameron Bancroft), an alien creature from a distant galaxy, takes on human form in order to capture the rogue alien David Banning (Andrew Gillies). Now Ethaniel must learn about our world: how we think and how we relate to each other. Dr. Laura Keating (Ingrid Kavelaars) assists Ethaniel in his understanding of the "human" way while he pursues Banning. Ethaniel knows Banning's secret goal lies in the brain of Thorber (Hannes Jaenicke), Ethaniel's missing brother. A brilliant scientist, Thorber originally worked with Banning but fled after discovering Banning's real scheme: the ultimate destruction of all human life on earth. Joined by Byder (Joseph Baldwin), a rebel hooked on conspiracy theories, Ethaniel and Dr. Laura Keating set out on their mission. Forging a powerful interspecies alliance, Laura and Ethaniel risk their lives and their emotions, including their growing love for each other. Danger, romance and suspense abound in this unique action-adventure series.
Ethaniel (Cameron Bancroft) is an alien assassin who's been sent to Earth on a certain "mission." Unfortunately though, he got blown out of the sky, took a bit of knock on the head and then woke up butt naked in the woods without a real clue of what he was doing there. Ironically, he was then run over by a car that was rushing to rescue him. All in all, not the best start to a mission...
Happily Ethaniel's luck takes a turn for the better when he meets beautiful psychologist Laura Keating (Ingrid Kavelaars), who after seeing some pretty strange things, accepts Ethaniel's "I'm an alien stuck on the planet" story (that old chat up line) and decides to help him remember what he's supposed to be doing.
She doesn't have much choice because Ethaniel's (forgotten) target David Banning (a baddie alien from Ethaniel's home planet) knows full well why the boy from the stars is here (Ethaniel has to stop Banning from some dastardly plot) and is exerting all his considerable influence to stop him. This includes sending a chappie called Mr. Dent along, who (fortunately for his acting) is a homicidal robot that has a speciality in sneering, changing appearance and coming back from the dead. (He amusingly gets trashed at least once in every episode).
As Banning pulls strings around them, the heroic pair go on the run and try to figure out just what exactly Ethaniel's supposed to be doing here. Once they've figured that out, it's just a matter of beating Banning's impressive army of commandos, laser firing satellites and "killer" robots to get it done...
