It all begins with a text message. An anonymous message sent to the cell phones of a dozen young men and women. The message is an invitation to attend one killer of a party. Just who sent the message no one knows, but it turns out to be an invitation no one can refuse, but which everyone will regret. Inside the doors of a dilapidated mansion, they gather, eat, drink, party, and have the time of their lives - that is, until it's time to go. The front door doesn't open; the back door doesn't open. Doors that once led to familiar rooms now lead to new ones; some doors open to yet other doors, and some go straight to dead ends. Only one thing remains constant: every door is a trap, leaving only one way out.

"This police drama contains adult language and scenes with partial nudity. Viewer discretion is advised."
The potential images those words created alone caused more controversy for this series, before it had even premiered. The "Bible Belt" was up in arms and no-one had even seen an episode. In most of those southern states the local ABC affiliates refused to carry the show, which was a shame because aside from a "little" bare flesh and a couple of harsh words, they missed out on a quality television show. Of course it wasn't long before they realized it really was no big deal. Late during the first season, Steven Bochco said during an acceptance speech at the 20th Annual People's Choice Awards:
"In spite of those who seek to legislate what we can and cannot see on our own television sets in the privacy of our own homes. NYPD Blue has succeeded because the American people, properly so, prefer to judge for themselves."
The first ever Enterprise is on a critical mission through space to save Earth from destruction.
