"I am the LEXX, I am a ten mile long biomechanical dragonfly designed to blow up planets for the Divine Order. My Captain, Security Guard 4th Class Stanley Tweedle stole me, now he and his friends, Kai, a superhuman undead assassin, Zev a love slave who is half cluster lizard, and 790 a robot head, are looking for a new home...." LEXX was a groundbreaking, surreal and subversive space opera that ran four seasons from 1997 to 2002. Innovative with a unique visual sense and production design, it combined Star Trek and Star Wars with the visions of surrealists like Jodorowsky and Bunuel with a dash of Monty Python, and featured cult icons Rutger Hauer, Tim Curry and Malcolm McDowell as guest stars. The story behind this Canadian/German co-production was as wild and unpredictable as anything that went up onscreen, as Indy film makers, American entertainment giants, renegade artists, supercomputers, international financing and cultural nationalism collided like pinballs to produce some of the strangest science fiction ever to reach the air. This book is the story of LEXX both onscreen and offstage, and the unique personalities that brought it into being.
