Ascension Anticipation


Now this looks interesting. In a few weeks the SyFy channel will premiere Ascension, a new SF miniseries presenting an alternate reality in which the United States launches a secret interstellar voyage. I'm particularly taken by the goofy and yet amazingly cool starship, which features nothing less then a Saturn V rocket as its centrepiece. The show could turn out to be amazingly dumb, but I'm a sucker for both alternate history stories and space opera, so I'll be tuning in.

What a crazy and delightful concept; it's like The Starlost meets Mad Men!

Yeah, the high concept is pretty exciting. Let's hope the execution is closer to Mad Men than The Starlost, though.
