Eve thinks that the sentient force on board the Antares wants to be revealed. Zoe and Connor realize they've been having the same dream. In flashbacks, Zoe has recovered from the termination of her pregnancy, but feels that everybody of watching her. Ted tells Eve exactly what happened on the earlier Mars mission. Written by garykmcd

Getting better
23 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a slow start this series seems to have picked up a bit in the last couple of episodes. It is Halloween and the crew of the Antares are expected to make a space walk for a commercial which will bring in ten billion dollars for scientific research. It should be routine but most of the crew are hallucinating to such an extent that they are having difficulties carrying out their work. Meanwhile in flash back we see how Zoe tries to cope with her emergency hysterectomy by acting as if nothing has happened.

I wish the series just stayed in the present as we know nothing really bad can happen to a main character in flashback as they are alive and well in the present. The action on the Antares is interesting enough and there is sufficient mystery about the cause of the crew's hallucinations and what exactly the mysterious Beta might be.
