Episode menu

Series 1, Episode 1 - The Landing Has Landed

Day 1 on the colony and they've lost the food, the air, the Commander and the mood music. Meanwhile, Chief Physician Lillian makes a terrible discovery about Project Adam, the plan to conceive and give birth to the first colony-born baby.

Further details

Welcome to the colony. Unfortunately Burrows, the leader of the colony, has died on the voyage and his number two, Brian is now in charge. He's no alpha male and his desire to sort things out with a nice friendly meeting infuriates the colony's Chief Physician Lillian, who would rather everyone was walking round in tight colour-coded tunics and saluting each other.
