"The Verse Is Vast And Crawling With Monsters" - Kate Westerman
The INU Transport 52 is returning from one of The INU's (Interplanetary Nations Unification) mine planets and carries passengers which includes health inspector Jason Westerman and his son Greyson Westerman.
Now it's more a matter of was returning. The ship went missing in the blackness of space. Two weeks after their set return date, there still hasn't been any trace of them.
Kate Westerman (Anna Torv) visits Milka's Command Central every day to see if there have been any updates... but she gets the same annoying answer every time:
"Sometimes ships take longer time than anticipated beforehand. Please, Mrs. Westerman, go home and they'll be back in no time."
Lies, Kate knows. She buzzes around the city, sometimes like an angry bee and sometimes like a headless fly, clueless as to what she can do.
That's when she comes in. One day, when Kate is eating at her favorite restaurant at the mall, a strange woman seats herself at Kate's table and invites her to a world she didn't know existed, a cake iced with the promise of a returned son and husband.
Lola (Olivia Wilde), a free-willed android, meets with a mysterious man of the shadows one night in an alley. He has promised to give her the "keeper of secrets" and makes good on this promise by giving her a white disc. The man announces his intention to take his own life after he finishes his cigarette and sends Lola on her way back to The Kraken, the small ship where her partners in "crime" wait impatiently for her safe return, the engine kept running to get the hell off the planet fast as possible.
Dwarf (Bill Nighy), a feared and battle-worn "tracker", is tasked with locating the stolen disc... he finds the body of the man, one of their own, at the bottom of the air traffic. Unexpectedly, Dwarf is called back to Command Central, where Acting Command Starla Rivers (Cassidy Freeman) reassigns him to apply his "tracking" skills for another case, of higher importance. Dwarf is puzzled as to what could possibly bear higher importance than the disc and AC Rivers explains that he must track down the missing Transport 52... together with the famous young Commander Arden Bayworth (Sean Faris) onboard his gifted ship Arden's Star. The two men with their vast difference of age and methods quickly find themselves clashing.
A conspiracy thriller set in different places, all relating to the dirty luggage The INU are trying to sweep under the rug... or keep others from getting their hands on before them.
Kate Westerman, as portrayed by ANNA TORV
Fierce when she has the strength for it, seen by many as "that weird lady who talks for an hour to fish at the mall ZOO", cares nothing what people think of her, loves strawberries, is a very open minded woman, wife and parent. When her husband and the son she loves more than anything on all the worlds both go missing, she finds herself wide-eyed, clueless, wandering all the corners of the city seeking any kind of answer. It doesn't take too long for a breathing answer with a seemingly endless appetite to come to her and pulls Kate into a dangerous new world of secrets, shady men in black and homeless in the street corners who may be even stranger than they look...
Dwarf, as voiced by BILL NIGHY
A formidable war veteran, not eager to talk past things. He is worn by battle, as proven by his body largely consisting of mechanical parts and his face always going covered by a gas mask. Dwarf has a patient temper to a certain point, is a lover of wines and has little tolerance for a certain "brat of a commander who got hugged too much by his royal mother as a child".
Lola, as portrayed by OLIVIA WILDE
Freed since a long time back from slavery and mind-control on the isolated planet of Qhorina, Lola still is very curious about the world she experiences with her unique set of eyes. She sees the greatest of things in the smallest of things and loves talking to people with stories. She is eager to please those she loves and has a fondness for many types of music.
Tara Bloom, as portrayed by UMA THURMAN
Very strong, very protective of those she loves/her crew. Tara is a woman of few words, communicating mostly through body language and leaves a lot of the talking to her brother.
Kanaan Bloom, as portrayed by WILL.I.AM
Soft, easy to talk with, mostly laid back. Kanaan does most of the talking for him and his adoptive sister Tara and sometimes has to act as peace judge between her and certain people.
Luke Wrigley, as portrayed by ISAAC HEMPSTEAD WRIGHT
Quiet, shy of outsiders, the ship's engine and the android Lola serving as his best friends. He was taken in by Tara and Kanaan many years ago and treated much like their own child. He has a traumatic past he never speaks about... he's only told Lola about what happened to him.
Arden Bayworth, as portrayed by SEAN FARIS
Youthful but wise beyond his years, Arden always looks to the best of his large crew. He wants to keep his bosses happy and tries hard not to let his fame after a certain battle get over his head. Things change dramatically for Arden once the tracker Dwarf boards his ship as a guest...
Maggie Grey, as portrayed by JAYMA MAYS
Awfully shy, nervous about screwing up all the time. Jayma knows how to work the consoles onboard Arden's Star but unfortunately missed out that part of class where you learned to interact with other humans... that virtual class she took.
Derek Bayworth, as portrayed by JESSE MCCARTNEY
Arrogant, likes to mess around with people, holds hate for both his brother and sister. Derek is the male heir to the throne of Kylana after his older brother joined The INU Protection Forces to the great anger of their mother. He and his sister have been sent away to travel some with their brother while their mother engages in the month-long "Passage of The Grieving Widow".
Kayla Bayworth, as portrayed by ISABELLE FUHRMAN
A will of stone, seems to see right through people, stubborn as hell when it's something she wants. Kayla has a good relationship with her oldest brother and a hateful one with the one that is to inherit the throne. She feels a bit bitter over the fact that their mother picked him solely for being a man... though she isn't really interested in being Queen.
Kayla owns a huge, black dog named Hellhound, or just Black, who has a tendency to bite Derek.

Creator's Words: So this is a series I've been developing for a while, originally as a book project... but then I quickly figured it worked much better as a virtual series. Each season would be 10 episodes long.
And as I said two times during... more details to come! It's late and I can feel my eyelids growing heavy. I just had to get what I could out NOW.
