Four aliens come to Earth to learn about our customs and experience life on our planet. They report their findings back to the Big Giant Head (played by William Shatner). In order to avoid detection by Earthlings, they take human form. The leader (played by John Lithgow) takes the name of Dick Solomon and finds work as a college professor. The military expert, Sally Solomon, (played by Kristen Johnston) assumes the role of Dick’s sister. The oldest of the group and their intelligence officer assumes the role of Dick’s teeenage son, Tommy Solomon. And then there’s Harry Solomon, Dick’s brother, that just seems to be along for the ride.
