Chapter 4: Originless As the series continued, the origins of the new species were still unclear, but that didn't stop people's interest. In fact it only helped fuel it. Back then it was so cool and unique being something completely other than human, yet still very interesting. But as science fiction writers are won't to do, they soon started to take the Originless concept and morph it into an urban fantasy world complete with aliens, robots, teleporters and a whole lot of magic and sci-fi mumbo jumbo. And now we have a whole load of shows based around such concepts.
