Storyline

Twelve extremely talented men and women have been chosen to be part of the Phaeton mission, a 10-year trek to explore a distant planetary system. In order to endure the stress of being confined to their high-tech vessel, the crew passes the time using advanced virtual reality modules that allow them to take on various identities. But as the ship approaches a critical phase of their journey, a deadly flaw is discovered in the virtual system, forcing them to question if someone onboard might be a killer. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The name of the ship, "Phaeton", is a nod to the movie's message of people recklessly trying to go too far and suffering the consequences for it: in Greek mythology, Phaeton was son of Apollo, god of the sun. An arrogant boy, he took his father's chariot out for a joyride but drove it too close to the ground, setting fire to everything in his path. As a punishment, Zeus himself burnt him with a lighting bolt. See more »

Incomplete
21 December 2018 | by bocjSee all my reviews

Fairly entertaining, if you can ignore the fact that the majority of the crew are completly unprofessional and act like teenagers.

However it has no ending! It feels like it is building to a final half hour of wrapping up the loose ends, then the credits appear and it's all over. Total waste of 90 minutes.

I have seen some comments stating that it is a pilot episode, therefore a cliffhanger is to be expected, but it is clearly stated as a TV-movie on this site and many others (not a pilot episode). False advertising?
