A murder, which is soon revealed to have taken place aboard the USS Ascension, a massive ship on its way to a new planet. You see President Kennedy in 1963 secretly launch a mission of a massive spaceship with a hundred humans aboard for the sole purpose to find a new planet to live on. They are half way to their mission when a woman is murdered on board. The ship is captained by William Denninger (Brian Van Holt, Cougar Town), His wife, Viondra (Tricia Helfer, Battlestar Galactcia) is a manipulator, who uses her own power, separate from her husband. These two are in charge of many things.
Of course it is a fictional story and there is a lot of movies that comes out about this subject. It is interesting enough and if it goes into great rating Scifi channel will turn this Mini-series into a full-blown series. Of course murder is the subject go the story it seems not surprising there too much. Sick with it and it will pick up. it is kind of addictive. You will be hooked like the rest of us. The cast as follows: Dr. Juliet Bryce (Andrea Roth), who isn’t getting along too well with her daughter, Nora (Jacqueline Byers), a strong-willed individual deeply affected by the murder. Chief Astronomer Emily Vanderhaus (Tiffany Lonsdale), the elder sister of the victim; Chief Safety Officer Duke Vanderhaus (Ryan Robbins), Emily’s husband, who doesn’t like where the case is heading up; James Toback (P.J. Boudousque), a maintenance worker and love interest for Nora; and Harris Enzmann (Gil Bellows), the son of the man who headed up the Ascension mission, who is back on Earth. And you will see what is going on back to earth also. There are questions unanswered but I think they left it like that because it might turn up a full-blown series and it will be answer then. Not too bad for a mini-series I like this one. There is more mini-series now days that pop out of the blue and that is fine by me.
