Storyline

Twelve extremely talented men and women have been chosen to be part of the Phaeton mission, a 10-year trek to explore a distant planetary system. In order to endure the stress of being confined to their high-tech vessel, the crew passes the time using advanced virtual reality modules that allow them to take on various identities. But as the ship approaches a critical phase of their journey, a deadly flaw is discovered in the virtual system, forcing them to question if someone onboard might be a killer. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The name of the ship, "Phaeton", is a nod to the movie's message of people recklessly trying to go too far and suffering the consequences for it: in Greek mythology, Phaeton was son of Apollo, god of the sun. An arrogant boy, he took his father's chariot out for a joyride but drove it too close to the ground, setting fire to everything in his path. As a punishment, Zeus himself burnt him with a lighting bolt. See more »

Pilot aired as a TV movie...
28 June 2009 | by squarecandiceSee all my reviews

I have heard through the grapevine that FOX, even if it doesn't pickup a show, is contractually obligated to play the pilot on air. So of course FOX doesn't care if it is accurately portrayed or even advertised/marketed since they have no interest in the show.

I think this program is more suited for SciFi than FOX. The pilot seemed like an interesting beginning to a potentially more complicated series. Hopefully we will be able to see at least one season on another network that is more suited to the show's style.

Most of the characters were easy to relate to, even if a tad trite and stereotypical. As I said before I believe that there is potential here.
