FOR THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 9, 2006
Nadina, the newest 4400 Fan of the Week, wants the power to let people travel to the past and make one change. Here is her entry:
No series had caught my attention as powerfully as The 4400 since the good old times of Star Trek. I love sci-fi, utopian futures and alternate realities – no point in denying it. But The 4400 is much more than all that: it's thrilling, wonderful, amazing... and possible. It has a sense of reality. It's something that could happen. After seeing a chapter, you may find it difficult to believe there are no 4400 walking on earth – yet.
In my country – Argentina – we are watching the third season. My favourite character is Shawn. I like his sense of responsibility; unlike Jordan Collier, the guy has values and principles, he's not disloyal or unscrupulous.
If I were a 4400 and had a special gift, that would be the power of returning to the past. I would use it to help people "make ammends", to rectify the mistakes they've made, to change their wrong decisions. Nobody would have to feel any regrets anymore. It'd never be too late to reverse the harm you might have caused. But one thing should be born in mind – once you've done something different from what you'd done previously, there's no turning back. You'll only have one chance, and that's all. If you're not satisfied with the result – sorry, you'll have to live with it. And remember the philosophy of The 4400: once you've made a change in the past, the future will be completely different.
