    This came on in the late 80s or early 90s. It originally was either a made for tv movie, mini series, or just a really long pilot.

    It had to do with a spaceship that was a prison, something happened and some of the things got loose and escaped to Earth (maybe only one thing got to Earth). I believe it was in a special containment unit perhaps?

    There was a guy that was tracking these thing(s) down, I don't remember if he was from the spaceship or not but I want to say no, and that he was helped with this woman who was a guard on the ship or something.

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    Hmm. First thing I thought was TimeTrax, but that was a cop from the future going back to the past to recapture criminals who had also time traveled. He was assisted by a hologram. I don't think that's what you are referencing, although it's in the right era.

    That plot is also similar to the movie Blade Runner. Some of the things (replicants) escaped to Earth. Guy tracking them down (Harrison Ford) sort-of aided by a woman (Sean Young).
