Spoiler for moments of the first episode of "Nightflyers" below.
George RR Martin's "Nightflyers" docked on Thursday with the Indigo Ballroom at the San Diego Comic-Con to give the fans a closer look at the upcoming Syfy-Sci Fi / Horror series, and it's a word it looks bloody out.
Based on the novella of "Game of Thrones" from 1980, "Nightflyers" follows a team of scientists aboard the Nightflyer, the most advanced ship of all time. Sent to the edge of the solar system on a mission, they find something terrible when they realize that the real horror is not waiting for them in space – it's already on their ship.
And as we saw during the panel, death, dismemberment and madness follow. Executing producers Jeff Buhler, Gene Klein and David Bartis, and the stars Eoin Macken, Gretchen Mol, David Ajala, Jodie Turner-Smith and Angus Sampson provided new details about the series ̵
The Panel Explained That Although the series plays in Martin's distant, galaxy-spanning "Thousand Worlds" universe, it takes place only 70 years after the present. Earth has become an environmental catastrophe at this time, no longer able to support humanity, and humans are colonizing other worlds to survive.
The night plane was built to support colonization efforts, but at the beginning of the series it was reused for the mission to investigate a recently discovered mysterious phenomenon near the outer planets. On the way, things are going very badly for the crew, as the first exclusive footage showed, which we were told was essentially the first few minutes of the pilot episode.
We first see the footage in the footage The ship seems to rock in space and is badly damaged – you can see what looks like clods of earth, trees, and other materials believed to be used for colonization that turned away from it. Inside, the ship's gravity has been disabled, and we find Gretchen Mol's character looking exhausted and exhausted as she floats to hold on to something. The scene jumps on a bloody hand and turns on a power switch that restores gravity, causing Mol's character to fall to the ground.
She stands up – we can see now that she's in a ruined lab where the floors are covered with blood and other guts – and starts rummaging around until she finds a recorder. She curls up under a table on the floor and hisses a message: "This is not an emergency call, it's a warning, do not bring the Nightflyer down to earth."
Angus Sampson's character is now wandering casually into the room. He is covered in blood, carries an ax and looks completely crazy. After leaving the room, Mol's character tries to find a glass in which, as we can see, toxic waste is disposed of. She wants to throw the glass into the room, but before she can, that ax falls through the shelf in front of her as Sampson plunges into the room. Seriously, it's basically Jack Nicholson's "Heeeere Johnny!" – Moment in space.
They fight for a few minutes until Mol's character pushes Sampson in the leg with a knife and drops him to the ground. As he struggles, she slides the glass into the slot and throws it into space. Then she goes to a window, looks thoughtful for a second, picks up a circular saw and cuts her neck, spits blood across the window before she collapses and dies. Endzene
It's as brutal as hell and made the audience laugh and scream at the same time.
Side Note: The clip began with a video of Martin apologizing for his failure to attend the Comic-Con and said he was too busy working on numerous projects, including his unfinished novel "A song of ice and fire". Winds of winter. "Cue audibly chuckles from the crowd.
The panel also featured the trailer that was released on Thursday afternoon, with a very" Solaris "moment you can see here.

10th "Angel" – The spinoff to "Buffy" (and a show some fans say is Joss's true masterpiece) has its own set of stories a few years after its cancellation. These comics are constantly overlapping with the storylines of the Scooby Gangs in the "Buffy" series, so have fun for fans of the Buffyverse as a whole. But the core story is now focused on Angels and Faith's relationship – in a series titled "Angel & Faith."
12th "Battlestar Galactica" –
The acclaimed new production came out in 2009 with a truly baffling bang, but the 2018 Dynamite Entertainment series "BSG vs BSG" surpasses them. The comic shows how the crew of the SYFY series 2003-2009 meets the crew of the 1978 series.
