The six-person crew of a derelict spaceship awakens from stasis in the farthest reaches of space. Their memories wiped clean, they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board. The only clue to their identities is a cargo bay full of weaponry and a destination: a remote mining colony that is about to become a war zone. With no idea whose side they are on, they face a deadly decision. Will these amnesiacs turn their backs on history, or will their pasts catch up with them?
It's like Firefly (with less quality and worst writing) and SG-1 put together based on a comic book with low budget production. It's cheesy, I'm not a fan of the Syfy network, the quality is just not there, SG was okay at the time, but this Dark Matter show, I'll give it two more eps to see if I like it or not.
Y'all can feel free to check it out.

I've been watching this show. I'm through the first 8 episodes or so. It's not perfect, definitely a Firefly rip-off, but not as good at world building and character play. However, it doesn't have the lame space-western vibe that Firefly had (which I didn't care for). It's a good show if you like sci-fi/space opera stuff, which I do a lot. I'll wait until I finish season 1, but so far I hope it gets renewed for another season.
So I finished the first season the other day. I liked some of the later episodes a lot, I think they're setting up for some interesting stuff, but good lord this show is a Firefly rip off. The last episode however was quite unsatisfying and unnecessarily confusing. But that seems to be how this show works, keeps you confused so you will want to know how it all fits together.
I just started Season 2 of this. Only 3 episodes in and really enjoying it. I might even say it's shaping up to be better than the first season. Hope it continues. This is definitely one of my favorite new shows. I'm a sucker for sci-fi, and this is very good sci-fi.
Damn is Portia Lin cool... damn hot..

I was glad to see this has already been renewed for Season 3.
