Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Thanks! Good to see any space opera sighting...lots more than I was hoping for...

The space opera centers on Orion, an adventurous female relic hunter who tracks down valuable artifacts while trying to piece together her past. Set amid an intergalactic war pitting humans against a terrifying alien race, Orion must decide whether to use her abilities to save herself or commit to the cause and unearth long hidden artifacts that could free all of humanity from a horrible fate.


The first detective ever in space is tasked with investigating a murder on a starship -- headed to colonize another planet -* and instead becomes embroiled in a vast conspiracy involving a mysterious terrible crime dating back to the original launch of the ship 50 years ago.


After a clan of bandits are nearly destroyed and left for dead by Coalition forces, they take refuge in the nearest safe haven, a derelict Coalition starship floating in space. Once onboard, they masquerade as Coalition officers while continuing their criminal ways *- until they stumble upon a shocking realization about the true nature of the Coalition.



When an alien armada is sighted in the region of Pluto, the Earth government turns to a young billionaire industrialist -- who has the only ship ready for interstellar travel -- to greet the aliens and avoid a catastrophe. Powered by secret alien technology discovered on Earth in the 1960s, the ship engages in a firefight that sends them spinning through a wormhole into an uncharted region of space. Lost in the universe, the team struggles to survive as they encounter new planets and alien species, searching for a way back home.
Seems like some overlap between the premises of SyFy's Blake's 7 remake and Clandestine, but I don't mind there being so much space opera that they start stepping on each others' toes.
