Twelve astronauts onboard Earth's first starship, the Phaeton, are on a ten-year expedition to search for a distant solar system. To stave off boredom the astronauts spend time in the self-created worlds they experience in virtual reality modules. The voyagers are faring well until someone downloads a bug into the system-is one of them the saboteur?

harpers island in spaceRating: 2 likes, 2 dislikes

Why Oh Why Oh Why do american tv execs give us crap like this + lie to me + harpers island and cancel the likes of Life, terminator sarah connor chronicles etc. All it is is harpers island in space just substitute the island for a space station and bump a few people off. Maybe they should set a tv show involving tv executives getting bumped off and we could hope it would be the same ones who pick shows like this. Or just hire me lol. First + last watch for me. Renew life, terminator etc by dumping these crap shows and use the money for the good shows cancelled. Read more

More Phaeton Please...Rating: 1 likes, 1 dislikes

Virtuality is charged with energy from the moment it starts. The best pilot to air since BSG, and seeing as they were both created by Ronald D. Moore, it is safe to say viewers are in for another dramatic space opera....Hopefully FOX picks this up, especially in the wake of TSCC. Read more
