About the show

The Navigators' new drama follows Constantine, a cyborg, and Nora, a genetically enhanced female explorer, as they begin an endless voyage across the uncharted universe. More…

When Nora goes against Constantine’s wishes and visits a strange new planet, she’s suddenly infected with an incurable disease. To delay losing the only person he loves to a gruesome death, Constantine takes it upon himself to suspend them both in cryo-freeze. Thus the pair begins a kind of chemical-induced time warp spanning millions of years as they wait for the universe to find a cure for Nora’s illness.
