The first mini series was outstanding, then it fell into the hands of other writers and we got that Star Child crap with her magical powers in the second part. Kenneth Johnson was the writer of part one, and he quit over creative differences with NBC regarding the direction of the sequel. Just look at the wiki page and see how many writers there are:
It's also backed up by IMDB:
No wonder the second half was so inferior to the first, with so many writers trying to put together the pieces of Johnson's story while at the same time trying to keep NBC execs happy (Johnson is credited under the pseudonym Lillian Weezer, btw).
I just really, really hate the second mini series. The concept started out strong and just fell completely apart. I imagine Johnson had a much darker tone in mind and the execs freaked. Well, what did you expect? He had alien reptiles eating people, for God's sake.
