Set in the year 2093, Nightflyers is a psychological thriller that follows a team of scientists aboard the Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built, as they embark on a journey to find other life forms. Their mission takes them to the edge of the solar system, and to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn't waiting for them in outer space-it's already on their ship.
You can't escape what's inside.

As the ship travels farther and farther from Earth, Karl has regular real-time video calls with his wife on Earth. These calls are instantaneous; at one point he throws something at the screen and she reacts. The ship doesn't travel faster than light, and neither would these transmissions. Even at the distance of Mars, there would be a conversation lag of several minutes, and the ship is much farther away than that. See more
