The six-person crew of a derelict spaceship awakens from stasis in the farthest reaches of space. Their memories wiped clean, they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board. The only clue to their identities is a cargo bay full of weaponry and a destination: a remote mining colony that is about to become a war zone. With no idea whose side they are on, they face a deadly decision. Will these amnesiacs turn their backs on history, or will their pasts catch up with them?

Got to love this show
3 July 2015 | by jjgreco-77343See all my reviews

It's sci fi for for sci if fans. This show fills a gap that was left by galactica and stargate universe and the like. I liked it so much I decided to get on and leave a review in hopes that it wouldn't get canceled by the anti sci fi overly critical critics. It is a major challenge to take on a show set in space with the ships, technology, characters, plot, and in this case they are on the right track. Just look at the ship set, it's awesome. After seeing the typical bad reviews I am convinced there is a plot to keep sci fi from staying on the air. The bad reviews sound like the people who originally hated firefly and look what happened there. It's nice having a new show without vampires, zombies, and high school drama that you can turn to when you want something in outer space with FTL. This show is great, has a smile on my face, and has me waiting for the next show.
