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

ABC did the right thing
29 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was a disaster.

Part of it seemed like the acting. The actors seemed like the beta revelation and the show cancellation were about the same thing: 40 minutes of stunned people talking about how they feel now that the world has changed.

But mostly it was the writer's choice to reveal everything. And more than that: how they should have revealed everything. The only way we find it out is boring semi- illustrated narrative that sounded as canned as an Am Way presentation. Show, don't tell. Reveal, don't preach.

Most of this information is back story, and really should have been dealt with, if at all, over the course of several episodes.

A fairly interesting series, run into the ground in one script. If I had been the exec, this episode would never have seen the light of day.
