It’s been 20 years since we first met John Crichton, an astronaut from Earth who during a space shuttle experiment was shot across galaxies through a wormhole. Crichton joins a group of escaped prisoners aboard the living leviathan ship Moya, and is relentlessly pursued by the militant group known as the Peacekeepers while trying to get back home.
