The year is 2146 .. . . We are currently looking for other planets to live on. The last war has damaged earth so bad that it can barely sustain lives on it, this is where the Earth Coalition group comes in. A crew of 20 will boarding the Omega for a 20 year mission looking for a planet. The question remains will they find one ???
The Omega is a nice deck out ship with living quarters for each crew member, a bar, kitchen, halo deck all to make life easy for the next 20 years. For the first 5 years all but 2 crew members will be in a deep sleep. After the 5 years they are waken and we learn about the crew members aboard and how they survive day to day. We even see a historical marriage between 2 crew members. 6 years and 6 weeks they encounter a large mass headed towards them. Once they pass thru it things change along with the communication back to earth. With out knowing why or what happened the Earth Coalition decide to send a new crew to inspect the Omega. With a smaller crew aboard the Argo, this high speed hyper cruiser will reach deep space quicker and get answers. These crew members will only sleep 9 months. Once all is awake they will seek till they find the Omega and what they find is shocking . . . . .
Sci-Fi is not one of my favorite genres BUT this one has that thriller/horror twist that made the story very interesting. You are hooked and eager to want more . .. . . .
