The mission is a go. In the near future, a coed international crew of 8 astronauts boards the spaceship Antares for a six-year interplanetary mission. With only limited help from Mission Control, it soon becomes apparent that these scientists and the crew aren't just in deep space - they're in even deeper than they could have imagined. Can old alliances and new attractions co-exist in the close quarters of a confined space ship?

Solitary

With Beta and Gamma sounding an unearthly duet between the Antares and Venus, the crew confronts loneliness and isolation-each in their own way. In flashbacks to the Ascan training process, Rollie helps Jen overcome her fear of the sensory deprivation tank, while the normally composed Nadia fights her own issues with the isolation experience. Donner tries desperately to perfect the planetary landing, driven by his terror of repeating the Mars disaster and the fear of losing Zoe.

Venus

Only hours from Zoe's perilous landing, Paula, with Wassenfelder on camera, broadcasts to Earth, explaining that, with a temperature at four hundred and sixty degrees centigrade, air pressure ninety three times that of Earth, and a carbon dioxide atmosphere, human time on the planet is limited to twenty minutes. Like bridesmaids in attendance, Nadia and Jen help Zoe into the bulky EVA suit.

The crew on the Antares watches horrified as Zoe walks away from the Lander, drawn across the blazing face of Venus by the sound of a baby's cry. Donner tells her that she is hallucinating, but Zoe persists towards the point of no return. As Paula continues to narrate the recorded video of the fake Venus walk, Arnel and Ajay report that Zoe's suit is starting to deteriorate and that the Venus Lander is overheating.
