The series is bathed in a halo of mystery that becomes more and more complex, but don’t worry, this series is not as complex as Dark’s. Although there are many mysteries to be solved, it will be less difficult to figure out if you have been paying attention to the clues from the first chapter.
The main character of this ensemble series is Maura Franklin (Emily Beecham) a neurologist who fights against the resistance suffered by women in her profession. Captain Eyk Larsen (Andreas Pietschmann) who will have to fight against everyone’s mistrust when the Prometheus initiates his mysterious communication. In addition, there are other characters on the ship as well as individual stories that will gradually become known and that will immerse the viewers in a rather complicated plot.
