Plot Synopsis

Aboard Earth's first starship, the Phaeton, a crew of 12 astronauts is on the verge of embarking on an epic 10-year journey crucial to the survival of life on Earth. To give the crew a measure of privacy as well as a vital recreational outlet, the ship has been equipped with revolutionary virtual reality modules. Each crew member can assume adventurous, avatar-like identities as they explore self-created worlds and scenarios, or simply spend quality down time as themselves in the ultra-life-like simulators. But there is a bug in the system. As crew members go in and out of reality, they realize that a virus has entered their private world. When the interloper's intrusions cross a violent and disturbing line, the ship's commander makes a difficult decision to shut down the modules. But before he can, a tragic event threatens the mission. Meanwhile, tensions are heightened even further as surveillance cameras capture their every move for a reality series back on Earth.
