While being transported in a military ambulance and supposed dead, Eve delivers an offspring and is killed by a half-breed. The baby girl is abducted by Dr. Abbot, and a couple of days later she grows up, reaching adulthood and becoming a gorgeous young woman called Sara. Dr. Abbot expects to develop a perfect DNA using Sara's eggs and win the Nobel Prize, and invites the student Dean to be his assistant and share his research and future awards.

Both Sil and Sara's mother Eve were ectogens - persons who were, or are being, gestated in artificial wombs - whereas Sara is not; she gestated in Eve's womb. See more »
In every movie, the Species alien has been able to detect defective genes just by touching a potential mate, including Sara. But at the end of this movie, Sara walks away with a sterile mate when she was seeking a fertile one to continue her species, and they are holding hands. She should have immediately detected his sterility. See more »

Three versions of this film exist:
one for the SciFi network with the usual cuts (sexuality, violence, gore)
a R rated version
an unrated version with one minute of additional nudity
I loved the first two Species films,and was kind of disappointed to know that Natasha Henstridge would not be playing the female lead in this,the third instalment of the series.My doubts vanished immediately after seeing Sunny Mabrey as Sara. Sara is Eve's daughter ,brought up by scientist Dr.Abbot in his home.As nature will have it,she breaks free from his shackles and the ensuing bloodshed and gore makes for a very entertaining sci-fi movie,though it is a trifle low-key as far as special effects are concerned . Still,I believe that without a strong lead character,films like these look either like second-rate porn,or plain ridiculous.Sunny Mabrey as Sara makes sure that neither of that happens. She is gorgeous,and has the looks to make you believe that she is really Eve's offspring. Though I noticed her lack of histrionic skills, I could not help but be taken in by her strong on-screen presence. Robin Dunne as Dean fails to impress,and Robert Knepper as Dr.Abbot isn't too good either. It is Mabrey's presence that makes the film a treat.
