This amongst many other plot holes, killed this series for me, not NBC.
Yeah, there were tons of flaws in the logic of this series.
Even with the event Simon mentioned, why not simply move the planet to a safe zone around another star...and THEN you have time to do what you'd need
to do here, if you really had to be here.
The biggest goof though, was when they said the homeworld was in another GALAXY.
Really? Our galaxy isn't big enough? They actually went to a complete other galaxy? Do people really realize just how big a galaxy is? So, they have
the tech to transport an entire planet from another galaxy, but have trouble getting rid of us? Really? Can't buy it.
Why not simply build a spacecraft (surely easier than a transport device), go to the moon, build the portal on the moon, then send Earth to orbit
another star in the goldilocks zone, then portal their planet in Earth's orbit.
Their race is saved, and here for the Event.
Our race is saved, and they get to be the kind, benevolent aliens they want to be.
Problem solved, but no, I guess these "advanced" aliens couldn't figure that out, huh?
