^Hmm, the only schedule conflict there with a show I might want to watch is between Person of Interest and Forever. But I'm not sure I'd actually be interested in Forever. And of course that's not accounting for non-genre network shows like Elementary, or for cable shows.

Mostly occult and fantasy-- hardly anything that could be called SF, even by stretching the definition.

Is there really a reason to watch the Madam Secretary or Scorpion pilots? It seems like both trailers give the whole plot away.
The shows keep getting shorter and the trailers keep getting longer.

So it's a period piece set in space? Interesting concept.

Sometimes. Sometimes they're just dumb. An interstellar generation ship launched before we had the capability to launch more than a one-occupant capsule into low orbit? They're really gonna have to sell me on that one.

Not to mention that the ship seems to have an onboard gravity vector perpendicular to the direction the rockets are pointing, meaning they also invented artificial gravity sometime before 1964.

They probably managed to adapt it from the Roswell ship.

So, um, the ship in the Ascension trailer. It has a Saturn V in the center of it. Complete with Apollo capsule and Launch Escape Tower. Me thinks this better be a comedy, because that's moronic on so many levels.

I see it as kind of the equivalent of modern day steam punk. Taking technology of the past and imagining it being used in a manner advanced for its time.

I imagine there will be an explanation for the technology, we'll just see what it is.

It's going to need something because 50 years later without alien technology it's not really going to be very far away in terms of getting to another solar system for a habitable planet.
