12 Minutes of Ronald D. Moore’s Virtuality!

Sci-Fi Mastermind Ronald D. Moore

Ronald D. Moore, the man who gave us arguably the greatest sci-fi series ever when he reinvented Battlestar Galactica is bringing a new deep space saga to the small screen with Virtuality. The 2 hour backdoor pilot is set to air this Friday, June 26th on Fox. Yes, the network that canned beloved geek TV like Firefly and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is going to torture us again by getting us hooked on a show almost certain to never be resolved. But damnit, optimist that I am, I am still going to get excited!

The potential series follows the 12 men and women aboard the Phaeton, an interstellar space-craft set on a 10 year expedition to a distant star system. To maintain sanity under such confined conditions each member is granted their own hi-tech virtual reality headset so they can escape to any environment of their choosing. However, mysterious glitches in the system begin to arouse suspicion. Particularly with the involvement of a reality TV show that is broadcasting their journey back on Earth.

Check out this new 12 minute preview!

Ron Moore has certainly earned my utter blind faith so I jumpin’ right on board! I am really interested to see how this concept develops. I dig the juxtaposition of a tense claustrophobic space mission with the endless expanse of virtual reality. Talk about havin’ your nerd cake and eatin’ it too.

It’s going to be up to us whether this becomes a series or not so be sure to tune in this Friday the 26th and make sure Fox knows if you want more Moore!
