The six-person crew of a derelict spaceship awakens from stasis in the farthest reaches of space. Their memories wiped clean, they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board. The only clue to their identities is a cargo bay full of weaponry and a destination: a remote mining colony that is about to become a war zone. With no idea whose side they are on, they face a deadly decision. Will these amnesiacs turn their backs on history, or will their pasts catch up with them?

User Reviews

A show that isn't a spin off or sequel
4 July 2015 | by turanic-23064See all my reviews

How long it's been since we saw a spaceship based show which is not a spin off, sequel or reboot? Yes Star Trek, Stargate and BSG spin offs were successful in many ways, but still they didn't offer a brand new Universe. Right now this show looks like some sort of inspiration from Firefly/Andromeda/Cowboy Bebop with a feel of EVE online if you know what I am talking about and I am absolutely loving it... I can see Joseph Mallozzi learned a couple of lessons from SGU failure, so now the producers of the show try to balance action with a slow story development and hints on how far and global the story can go... It's great, the ending of episode 4 boosts imagination - jump clones, a killed emperor, potential intergalactic conflict... And the humor, it's not dumb... So if you like intelligent Space sci-fi with bits of mystery , you're welcome...
