The spaceship, Starship Avalon, in its 120-year voyage to a distant colony planet known as the "Homestead Colony" and transporting 5,258 people has a malfunction in one of its sleep chambers.

Trivia

Instead of using post-production CGI, the UI that the actors interacted with on various computers and machines was developed on a gaming engine, Unity, displayed on touch-based tablets and actually worked. See more »

Goofs

It makes no sense that such a high-tech star-ship does not have a system that avoid that kind of collisions with larger object in space. These ships never faced any such problem & were called "astroid proof" so either company was lying or makers weren't able to properly make better ships. See more »

Don't miss the first two minutes
13 January 2017 | by retiredat55See all my reviews

It's not a spoiler to say that in the first minutes of the film we get a bird's eye view of the ship colliding head on with an asteroid swarm. Don't ask why this incredibly complicated ship couldn't/didn't attempt any evasive maneuvers. In any case the ship's automated systems are only partially successful in dealing with it, the sequence of events ending with one of the passengers being awakened prematurely from his hibernation pod. It's also important to know before the curtain goes up that the passengers are not astronauts, they literally are just passengers on a space-borne cruise ship which is taking 5,000 people on a 120-year journey to colonize a new world. If you can suspend disbelief long enough you will be very entertained.
