Over the past 50 years, a popular mythos has emerged about visitors from outer space abducting human beings. The subject has inspired books, magazines, movies, television shows, radio shows and internet websites, all devoted to the study and exploration of the experiences of those who say they have been taken.

None of these, however, has offered the epic scale and compelling narrative of Steven Spielberg Presents Taken, an unprecedented 10-night miniseries produced by DreamWorks Television for the SciFi Channel. As it traces the lives of three families, each intimately connected with the alien abduction phenomenon over the course of more than 50 years, Taken combines a half-century of alien mythology with the stories of the ordinary - and extraordinary – people on the front lines of man's contact with other worlds.
