This was 10 hours I wish I could get back... this show was a disastrous mess. You know what happens in the first minute, and by the 2nd show you are not even sure you really care enough to find out how it gets there. None of the reveals are ever very satisfying, and just compound the building anxiety for the thing to actually be over.

At the core of the failure is just basic common sense, or maybe the lack of explanation on why that common sense doesn't apply. If this ship is HUMANITY'S last hope why would they pick a cursed ship, with a bunch of mental patients with severe trauma running it? Nothing makes any remote sense, and it devolves from there.

Good production values, but at 10 hours it was just too long. I can't believe that it's considered a series that might be back for a second season.

Described as George R.R. Martin's attempt to show that SF and horror can mix, it didn't come off as well as the Alien series for example. There were too many thematic distractions, such as a possible alien invasion, a dying earth, telepaths, human consciousness stored in a computer, etc. Add in the fact that every leading character is dealing with a major trauma of some kind and it's just too many balls in the air to keep track of.

If Netflix keeps control of it, it will have a chance

George RR Martin why are you on SYFY? This is destined to be cancelled. Unfortunate because the premise sounds entertaining.

This could be a bad star trek episode in a time warp that got cancelled before it aired lost at the edge of space dammit.
