Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: The great unknown: Limitless heavens crowded with sparking mysteries, challenging Man's curiosity. But the heavens are not oceans. Man cannot push a boat into its currents and set sail for the next horizon. The heavens are a mystery only science can solve, as it penetrates the unknown.

Closing Narration: Panic button pressed. Passengers returned. One side always in the sunlight, the other always in darkness; the known and the unknown. Frightening to each other only when they are both unknown... and misunderstood.

Captain Harvey Branson: The greatest danger? ... I don't know, there's so many. Maybe the worst are the ones who make for ourselves by seeing things that don't exist except in our own imagination.
