The Spaceship

In the year 2104, a fleet of research cruisers were launched into space.

Their mission...

to seek out new life.

With every moment on board preserved by wall-to-wall monitoring, and transmitted over time back to earth...we have been allowed unique access to one of these ships - the Really Invincible III, Macclesfield Division.

What you are about to hear took place live, four years ago, seventy thousand light years from home...
