In the early 22nd century the human race has mapped most of the known universe but failed to find alien life, and frankly gotten a little tired of the whole thing. A spaceship on a routine collection mission stumbles into the greatest discovery in history: an alternate universe, far stranger and way more dangerous than ours.
Now the ship's crew - a collection of over-matched rookies, feuding siblings, burned-out veterans and obsolete robots - has to explore this new universe to try and find a way back home alive.
