Storyline

In the near future, eight astronauts from five countries (four women and four men) undertake a mysterious six-year international space mission covering thirteen billion kilometres. With the eyes of the world upon them - everything they do is monitored, and every emotion they feel, scrutinized - they soon discover that their real assignment is not at all what they thought.

Much better than expected
30 May 2019 | by sublimeintentionsSee all my reviews

I though this was the perfect amalgamation of science fiction and drama absolutely disappointed that the story never ended. I watched it not realising that it was a cancelled series. Definitely deserved to be continued
