As a boy Chris Sanders was forced to watch on helplessly when the father he worshiped, the astronaut Mathew Sanders, was killed in a Soyuz capsule that exploded. What Chris didn't realize was that the accident was only staged to fool the public, and hide the real circumstances behind the mysterious "Omega Mission": AEON, a vast, indefinable mass out in space, was coming threateningly close to the earth and had to be destroyed. General Gossett, the head of the Omega Project, wanted to prevent mass panic by keeping the whole thing top secret. His colleague McBain protested fiercely, however, and was locked away in a psychiatric clinic. Ten years later, Chris himself is an astronaut, and has been chosen to go on his first mission to the International Space Station that is orbiting the earth. Shortly before the launch he meets McBain, who tells him about the phony accident ten years previously. Chris doesn't believe him, but Laura, an attractive journalist, investigates the matter and ...

This mini-series was total baloney, with added bratwurst flavor.

Tired acting, predictable (and heavily prejudiced) plot that teeters on the edge of unintentional comicality, expensive-looking but poorly executed special effects. A safe no-brainer that'll keep you glued to the screen for, what, 15 minutes as you skip through the story in fast forward. Yes, it's simple enough to grasp at 15x normal speed and not miss anything important.

But a thumb up for making something this ambitious outside Hollywood. At the same time, a big thumb down for the producers for adapting and resorting only to the most worn-out cliches in the book.

Need just a few more attempts to get it done right. Maybe in the upcoming trillennium we will finally see a decent European Sci Fi flick.
