Synopsis: Supernova chronicles the search and rescue patrol of a medical ship in deep space in the early 22nd century and its six-member crew which includes a Captain and Pilot, a co-pilot, a medical officer, a medical technician, a search and rescue paramedic, and a computer technician. When their vessel, the Nightingale 229, answers an emergency distress signal from a comet mining operation in a distant galaxy, the crew soon finds itself in danger from the mysterious young man they rescue, the alien artifact he's smuggled aboard, and the gravitational pull of a giant star about to supernova. The resulting explosion will be the most massive explosion in the universe.

or you aren't.|Count them. They're all there.

Since we don't bring out|the pleasant side in each other,

tell me what the hell|bothers you so much about me.

I don't like Hazen.

It's not just a type-H mind-altering escape.

I don't like what it does to people who|take it, I don't like what they do to others.

- I used to know someone...|- I'm not someone.

Didn't say you were.

There's nothing I can do|to change the past, yours or mine.

Heal thyself, doctor.

Emergency distress signal received.

- We're still in business!|- Nothing like being wanted.

I'll be in the engine room.

I've forgotten everything.|What's my job? What do I do?

- Come on.|- It's been that long.

Emergency distress signal received.





What have we got?

Signal received.

SOS, critical.

The signal's degraded.|It's taken five days to get here.

Dispatch misrouted it?

This isn't from dispatch. It's a direct call.

Direct? We don't get direct. Origin?

Pohl 6822.

I'm getting a little more.

Call letters for a merchant enterprise.

It's Titan 37.

It's a mining operation.

This is way past the colony outpost.

Sweetie, pull up all records|on Titan 37, Pohl 6822.

Titan 37:
lunarmining operation.

This moon was expelled from orbit|around its original starsystem

- and is now classified as a rogue body.|- Rogue moon.

There's a lot of gravitational|instability in that sector.

Mining operation was abandoned

when rogue moon drifted|into unmapped space.

Complete crew evacuation|five years, three months ago.

An SOS from an abandoned mine?

Distance to distress call location:|3,432 light years.

If we wanna answer this call|in our lifetimes we'll have to jump.

We haven't jumped in three tours.

I'm not jumping this crew|for anything uncertain.
