Six people awake on a spaceship adrift in space with no memories of who they are or how they came to be on the ship. They find a haul of weapons in the ship's cargo bay and recover the coordinates of their last destination. But were they headed there as friends or foes?
- Annie: A really solid premiere episode. I find something to like about each of the characters. Looking forward to see how all the mysteries set in motion will be resolved.
- Kris: Pretty good! I like most of the characters already, and this episode set up enough intrigue that I’m looking forward to seeing where the season takes us.
- Stephanie: I’m very interested in the potential the premiere sets up. I’m definitely anticipating the next episode. But it didn’t wow me.
- Grungy scifi (e.g. Firefly, Battlestar Galactica) rather than pristine scifi (e.g. Star Trek)
- Independent planet vs. multi-corps
- Oh no! Zoie Palmer lost her hand again!
- Seems like they tried to use the actors a lot in the fight scenes
- Beautiful sets. Kudos to Ian Brock (as always).
What Made Us Happy
- Three wailing on the locked box
- Six eating the gross food
- Two and Six looking after Five
- Two landing in a perfect cat stance when all those other lunks fell on the floor
- Two being awesome in general
- The Android disarming Six and easily evading Four’s sword
- The crew debating about the cargo. “I vote against her voting.”
- Will we still be calling them numbers by the end of the next episode? Will they embrace their old identities or feel disconnected from them?
- What’s in Four’s box?
- Why did One have the pendant? Did he kill Hrothgar’s people or was he reconsidering his lifestyle before the memory wipe? Are we sure it’s One’s pendant?
- “It was me in the dream, but it wasn’t really me because it wasn’t my dream.” Or was it her dream?
- Do we think the files they found at the end of the episode are real?
- Why is Five there? Does she have a file? Was she kidnapped by the rest of the crew?
