Plot Synopsis

Based on George R.R. Martin's horror drama novella of the same name NIGHTFLYERS, set in the year 2093, is a sci-fi horror drama series that follows a team of scientists aboard The Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built, as they embark on a journey to find other life forms. Their mission takes them to the edge of the solar system, and to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn't waiting for them in outer space -- it's already on their ship. Roy Eris is the reclusive captain of the Nightflyer and head of the powerful Eris Corporation, the leading builder of off-world colonies in the solar system. He interacts with his crew through a variety of technical interfaces and resides on his own private deck, which houses a dangerous secret. Lommie is a gender-fluid cyber technician specialist who prefers to interface with computers more than humans. She uses the surgically implanted Neuro-Port in her arm to meld with the Nightflyer's computer systems, an experience called "porting" that she finds exhilarating. Karl D'Branin is a handsome, strong and seemingly confident astro-physicist who heads the scientific expedition aboard The Nightflyer to the edge of the solar system in hopes of making contact with alien life. Dr. Agatha Matheson is a beautiful psychiatrist who specializes in working with L-1 telepaths. Despite her own deep-rooted fears about space travel, she agrees to join the mission in order to protect one of her L-1 charges from the crew, who deeply mistrust and resent him. Auggie is a seasoned veteran who has been the chief engineer aboard the Nightflyer for 22 years. He is clearly loyal to Eris -- and ready to carry out his every command, including the possibility of murder. Melantha Jhirl is a tunning, athletic and highly intelligent, Mel is a "genetically enhanced" cadet from the Genetic Space Program who is hand-chosen as D'Branin's first officer aboard the Nightflyer mission. She is fiercely loyal to D'Branin but finds competition for her loyalties when she captures the eye of Eris.
