Storyline

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.

Goofs

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 »

Way to replace the Expanse with garbage
2 December 2018 | by suranyigaborSee all my reviews

My all time favourite sci-fi show is The Expanse, I was really disappointed when the axed it and when a channel needs "air time for a new show" they always launch some mediocre or even substandard show desperately trying to enforce variety but if something works it doesn't need fixing. I was really glad when Amazon picked it up but I thought I'll give this Nightflyers a whirl, at least for 30 minutes, when I couldn't look at the terrible characters anymore, looking at that telepath guy being a jerk for no reason and acting ridiculos. The whole setting is uninteresting, editing is bad, had to fastforward a few seconds here and there so I can hold my attention but after 20 minutes I literally started falling asleep (in the middle of the day) and 10 more minutes I was actually annoyed and had to quit and decided I will never look back at this show. I watched an episode of Mars right after which is a lot more slow paced but still succeded to hold my attention and being far better in every deaprtment. Sometimes a show deserve a second chance to realize that it's actually good but his isn't one of them.
