This very low budget TV show (which was shot on video, as opposed to film, as most regular TV shows are) involved a giant spaceship called THE ARK which was composed of hundreds of domes, each of which (supposedly) contained a sample culture from the planet Earth, which had long since died out due to some thing or other (If memory serves, it was pollution). Any way, this giant space ship had an accident somewhere along the way in an asteroid storm which killed the crew that was piloting it, so now it's careening toward -get this- an UNCHARTED SOLAR STAR ! The character played by Keir Dullea (who was DAVE in 2001) gets forced out of his dome and goes roaming around the ship with his 2 friends, trying to set the course correct so that they don't hit this star.Written by

IF the shot had used film instead of video tape, IF the supporting cast around Keir Dullea could act, and IF there had been some better scripts. The show had three good episodes; the first: "Voyage to Discovery", the second: "Lazarus frim the Mist", and one of the last "Farthins Comet". In all there were only 17 produced before the plug was yanked in the winter of 1973. I remeber how much I liked the show, and had it had a little more money spent on its prouction it might have lasted a bit longer. As it was shot on video tape, which degrades over time, I doubt any of the shows still exist. If they indeed still exist it would be great to see it on the Sci-Fi channel. I thought The Ark (the spaceship) was totally cool, and believable from the concept of the show. I read on the website devoted to the show that some one is trying to restore the Ark studio model back to as it originally existed!
