Having finally been given access to Pod 4, the crew of the Antares come face to face with the Beta object. Eve Shaw recounts how, as a 22 year-old aid worker in South America, she came across the object. She has now devoted 15 years of her life to its study and for the first time, the crew learns the true purpose of their 6 year mission. They also learn that it is the Beta object that selected them for the mission and that for whatever reason, their hallucinations are all based on fears from their past. For Donner and Ted, the new mission may be related to their own mission to Mars 10 years ago. That secrets have been kept does cause friction between Eve and Ted and also between Jen and Rollie, who was also in on the secret Written by garykmcd

Beta fails to excite
13 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well nine episodes in and we finally get to learn about the mysterious Beta; unfortunately what we learn isn't all that interesting: A strange signal was discovered on Mars the shortly after another is found in Peru, these are dubbed Alpha and Beta respectively, subsequently it is learnt that their are seven such items in the solar system and it is the Antares true mission to collect them all. Of course it doesn't help to know that the series has been cancelled so the viewer knows they will never learn what the item's true purpose is meant to be.

While in the present the crew are coming to terms with seeing Beta and learning what their true mission is we see flashbacks showing how Eve found Beta when it "sang" to her when she was working for a disaster relief agency in Peru, she goes out in to the desert one night and finds the item, only to me met by an agency which tells her she can't tell anything about what she found. As most of the action took place in the past this episode lacked any real sense of danger.

After a few good episodes I was a bit disappointed by this one, hopefully things will pick up again when they get nearer to Venus.
